Valentine Gratitude Box
If you recall last year we had a Valentine Gratitude box in the kitchen in which to put sweet notes to each other. We read them aloud on Feb 14th.
Margaret doesn't want to do it this year, because even though Jack apparently chose NOT to participate, he was a big part of the activity last year. I blogged about my favorite funny responses last February, and I think they illustrate the sweet and playful way Margaret related to Jack and our whole family!
I really hope you'll check that post out, replacing Molly/Margaret and Jake/Jack.
Here are some others that didn't make that post, but that sure DO make me miss LAST Valentine's Day a lot:
