Valentine Tradition!

My family grew up making Valentine boxes! Each person in the family decorates a shoe box and every day leading up to Valentines Day, the boxes are secretly filled with letters from all members of the family. Then on Valentines Day we all open our boxes and read what everyone wrote about us. It is such a fun tradition and I know my girls will always remember it as well. Thanks Mom for such a fun memory!!
On top of our special Valentine Family Home Evening, we had to watch Groundhog Day as we decorated. Every February 2nd my kids know we will have our annual Groundhog Day party. We made popcorn and ate Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, in heart shapes of course!!

So fun!! We made ours on Monday night too!! I love seeing the girls sweet faces. We miss you guys so much. I cannot believe Paige is 3! Time flies. We are so proud of Ellie for getting up and talking about her cool pics in front of her class!! YAY! I'll call soon. Tell John 'Hi' for us. Love you Ang. I sure do miss you.

PS I had TOTALLY forgotten about Essie!! But seeing her brought back some fun memories of Ellie a few years ago.
