Feelin' the Love

I love love love Valentine's Day--all the more now that I have children. I can't wait to give them their little V-Day goodies tomorrow morning! Here's an idea we tried this year that I think will become a tradition in our home: Valentine envelopes, hung up a couple of weeks ago, filled 'secretly' with cards, notes and candy from the kids to each other. They are so excited about being able to look in their envelopes tomorrow and read all the notes from their siblings. Look how full those things are! See? They do love each other. :)

I agree, this is a great idea! :) It's no wonder your kids woke up early this morning with "Christmas-like anticipation". :) You've passed the excitement on to them, good for you. :D I love Valentine's Day for my kids...not for me though.

That is a great idea! I think I will be a copycat next year. I especially like the idea of them giving notes to each other.
