We were a tad bit late on our Valentines-prep “heart-attack” this year, but we hunkered down and did it for FHE on Monday. It is one of my very favorite traditions. Everyone writes a heart for everyone else…something that they love about them and then we “heart-attack” the house. It’s a great thing to be reminded of that love all month. I mostly love that when kids get snippy with each other I can just point to those puppies hanging on the wall and remind them that they really do love each other. Some random ones I took pictures of… I also have to say thank you for all the insightful comments yesterday. I realize that I am very, very lucky to have had the family experiences I have had in my life. And when you have something you are so deeply grateful for, you sure want others to have it too. I hope and pray that there will always be respect for that sacred unit. And for the sacred duty parents have to raise children the best way they know how.
candy bar game
In answer to many questions about the candy bar game from a few posts ago, here it is: (and I take no credit since it’s a total tradition from my…
Growing up we had some crazy family traditions. I have two favorites: The first was my Dad’s birthday tradition. His birthday falls in October, which is a perfect month for…
Easter, as usual, was great. It was a crazy day, but thankfully still charged with some good spiritual energy due to the great suggestions I got a couple posts ago…
We do gingerbread houses each year before Christmas. It’s fun for all of us, but I must say that the person who loves it most is our candy-holic:In her book,…
Valentine’s Day 2015
The only problem with this “enjoy” stuff for 2015 and slowing down on blogging is that I get even more far behind on things I want to document so I’m…
adding our traditional Valentine’s love to the kitchen
For those who are new here, each year leading up to Valentine’s Day we “heart attack” our kitchen. We cut out hearts and fill them up with love we have…
that is such a cute idea. I love valentines decorations!
I am so copying your idea. I think we need a year round "heart attack" in our house to remind my kids that they really do love each other. 🙂 I'm excited to make one for my husband because I know I don't tell him enough how much I love and appreciate him. Thanks for the inspiration!!
We did this last year because you inspired us, and this year, the kids are already asking when we're filling the kitchen with hearts again. As always, thank you for sharing your awesome ideas.
Hugs to you from us! We love your feistiness too!!
I love this idea!! We can all use a reminder of why those in our lives love us!
we did this last year, and I need to get it together for this Weeks FHE!!
I wanted to comment yesterday but didn't. You obviously struck a chord with the number of comments. Thank you for the reminder to be grateful to be "enshrouded" I'm family life right now. Sometimes I forget with daily life but I'm so very grateful to have come from an amazing home and I'm trying my best to have a happy healthy home for my brood! You are so inspiring and wonderful.
I didn't comment on the enshrouded post. I had some things to say but realised that my opinion had already been shared. So what I really like about you is that tolerate (or rather welcome) different opinions and I have the feeling that you take them into account.
So cute Shawni, so inspiring. I wonder which kid said he loves mom's feistiness:).
This is such a fun idea! I love reading about your wonderful ideas for Family <3
I've always loved this idea of yours!! The hearts are cut up and ready to go. We do ours thru out the month, it's great to spread it out as long as we can. Showing a little lOVE everyday to someone.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring us with this idea.
And how awesome is this! Love the idea.
