February first is the day we put up our white tree and decorate for Valentine’s Day. I wrote about how this tradition got started in this post. It’s fun to see how much the kids have grown since last year too!
This also began our count down to Valentine’s Day. We have a Valentine themed activity or treat each day. The kids call it “The Valentine thing of the day.” They are mostly simple little things, but the children look forward to them with great anticipation. Years ago I decided to quit expecting my husband to bless me on Valentine’s Day and decided to bless my family instead! Decorating our tree and taking our annual pictures are just the beginning.
