This year was the first time that the kids needed to make Valentines boxes and they were the most excited. I found some pretty red and silver boxes and then bought a lot of different stickers and let them have free reign to decorate. It was funny to watch how strongly their personalities came out in the way they decorated....Luke was meticulous and wanted everything to be neat and symmetrical...Ruby had no plan and only cared about stacking on as many stickers as possible. They boxes turned out amazing and they were both so excited to show off their projects at school.
Tim and the kids surprised me with flowers the night before Valentines, and then the kids convinced us to give them a few Valentines treats early. We have so much fun giving them holiday surprises - it's hard not to when they get so excited and appreciative over little dollar store surprises and other simple gifts. I had to leave early the next morning but left a few more treats including pink strawberry milk and some new valentine pets. Both Luke and Ruby loved their school parties and were especially excited about the candy and prizes that ended up in their boxes. We finished up the night with a family date night and pizza. We are all so lucky to have each other to love!
