Valentines Day celebrating will officially start in our house on Feb 1st. We love to be in love around here. I am in a complete dilema of what cute thing I can do oh I mean help Annie Kate do for her Valentine cards. I love to get them done early.
One of our Valentine traditions (credit to my friend S. Deere) is that we have red pillows with our names on them that sit on our bed all month. They each have a pocket on the front to hold love notes from the family. Each day you can write what you love about that person and slip it in the pocket. Last year Jeff filled ours with little gifts a few times.
On the actual day we always have a special breakfast with a little valentines trinket at the table (credit to my mom) Balloons on the mailbox when Annie kate gets home from school, (my girlfriend puts a cute mylar balloon on the end of her kids bed so when they wake up in the morning it is there, credit to P.Cram) i am sure i will make some valnetines outfit for school this year, the valentines fairy (credit to J. Rogers) comes at night and rings the doorbell and runs and leaves a trail of glitter behind with some gift, I usally go to the dollar store and buy some silly heart stuff.
I know i admit i go a little overboard on the holiday thing but i love any reason to celebrate. i am looking for some new valentines traditions so if you have any please share!
