Valentine's Surprises!

Last year, I started a tradition of doing 14 Days of Valentines. I started that again this year, but I'm adding a new tradition of putting hearts on their doors every day with something about them until Valentine's Day.

On Friday night, I cut out hearts and some string for each of their doors, then wrote something on each heart for each kid.

Instead of taping all of the hearts to their doors, I tied the string to a push pin, then I am going to tape the back of the hearts to the string.

This was Lily's first heart:

There's lots of room for more hearts!!

This is Riley's first heart:

And Zach's first heart:

They have gotten more hearts since Saturday morning. Here are what they say:
Lily: You are a good sister!
       You are a beautiful dancer!
       You are very sweet!
Riley: You are so smart!
         You are a great scout!
         You are a good brother!
Zach: You are a great reader!
         You are a good big brother!
         You are a very generous person!

They love seeing the new heart everyday! :0)

Now, onto 14 days of valentines! If you want to see what I did last year, you can go to these posts:

The first one they got this year was with Laffy Taffy:

They got orange juice on Sunday morning:

They were excited to bring fun pencils to school on Monday:

And this morning, they got this yummy treat to go along with their Snow Day!

I'll post more valentine surprises later! :0)
