Valentines Party! {show and tell}

Look at all these great Valentines inspired projects you’ve been working on!!

Barbara sent this to us! Love it!

I think this Northcote Range fabric, by Cabbages and Roses is very romantic.

 

 

This quilt and accessories are AWESOME!   In Jean’s email she said that she was inspired from the heart block video, and put this together!!

I absolutley love it!

I’m so glad you all shared!!

Do you have any specific Valentines day traditions?  Or things that make it memorable for you?  Growing up, my Dad always gave us each a little heart with chocolates, and we felt so special.  (he still gives us our own boxes of chocolates.  Such a sweet guy!)

As a Mom, i had to come up with something to do, that included everyone and would be the least painful. (as far as putting it together, and making everyone happy) LOL.

 So, I came up with one dinner I could make that ALL my kids would eat (without complaining.)

With 5 kids, that is a tough bill!  That is when I started the traditional Valentines dinner of French Toast.  (I make a few, stuffed french toasts, mmm) and the rest plain.  You see, I wanted to have a nice dinner and be able to express love to each other, with no whining!

The first time we started this, I think we only had three kids.  I had each one of them go around the table and tell one thing about each member of the family that they loved.  It is truly the sweetest thing.  They were all crying by the time it was over, because they realized how much they loved each other.  Such sweet moments, I hope I never forget.  I look forward to it every year, and it’s kind of fun to have our own little tradition.

If you have a chance to comment, I’d love to hear what you do with your family.

If you haven’t today, tell someone you love them.  There is never a bad time to say those words.

Come back tomorrow, I have one more absolutely adorable wall hanging to share.
