Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!Did you have a happy Valentine's day? Our tradition has evolved into a day of affirmation for the kids. We have a fancy meal, all of us together, with the table set with chargers and cloths, and usually decorated with heart confetti made by the kids. Jeremy fixes a beautiful meal, and I write out words of affirmation for each of the kids. They seriously love it. All four of them.
This year, Jeremy made crepes for our breakfast. We decided to add a gift to our cards and I made up some movie ticket stubs to let the kids know we're going to go to the theater to watch Beauty and the Beast when it comes out. They were so excited! (I am too!) Their words of affirmation included things like "You are sweet and adorable" "You are growing big" "You are kind" "You are brave." It's a sweet time.
And Jeremy also got me a little gift. Well, he tried anyway. He bought a pot of daisies, my favorite flowers, but left them outside the night before where they froze and died. So (bless him) I got a pot of dead daisies for Valentine's. I laughed. He said he thinks I like gifts like that better because I really do love to laugh at a good joke. He does keep me laughing.
