For the last several years, we’ve had a tradition of having a little family party, on the road, in the bus, to celebrate LOVE day. It has grown to be a family tradition and is such fun.
Several weeks prior to Valentine’s Day, we draw names, and then spend the next few weeks giving little gifts, notes, or doing acts of service for whoever’s name we drew. The goal is to keep the whole thing a surprise until the “big reveal” party on Valentine’s Day.
I have to include two pictures of Rebecca because there was quite the funny story that went along with her gifts. So Dad had her name. But somehow there was a little miscommunication, and Mom thought that she was supposed to get a gift for dad to give to Rebecca, and dad thought HE was supposed to…so they BOTH ended up getting her gifts, and Rebs got a double load. =)
We all got a good laugh out of that. It was agreed that, being the baby and all, she deserved a double portion. =)
There were also a few lunch dates, one of which was Denver + Allison!
And then of course Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without roses!
“We love Him, because He first loved us.”
