**3 of my favorite people were born in this month
** watching the movie Ground Hogs Day
** Valentines Day
**Presidents Day weekend
I know that not everyone loves Valentines Day. I know that I am a romantic. I know all that. But it is my favorite holiday. My daughter, Harmony tells me it is because I am married and that I wouldn't feel the same if I was single.But its not true! I love that there is a day set aside, just to show & tell people how much we love them.
A few years ago, I started doing the 14 Days of Love. It is a fun tradition and I love it. This is the first time my husband has been home for Valentines Day in 2 years! So I have been including him this year as well.
So here is what I did for Day 1, starting with my kids lunches:
|A heart filled with heart shape fruit snacks|
|Heart shaped pb & j with a heart food pick|
|Graham cracker pretzels, red apples, pb|
|Their treat was a pudding and so the spoon was wrapped in a napkin & held together with that cute heart shaped clothes pin!|
OK, here is the treat in their mail boxes
|The 4 older kids already had their mailboxes, so I had to come up with something different for Ben & Mason|
|Mason isn't old enough to get the whole "write stuff" thing so he gets a notebook & markers..for my lil' pip squeak :)|
I will try and let you know where I got all the items. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
