Years ago, maybe around 1994, we started making and filling Valentine boxes at home.
Bobby, Jimmy and Nina were all at home for homeschooling for 2 years ( they started school at public schools and graduated from public school but need some intense instruction in weak subjects so we homeschooled them.)
Anyway, we stayed really busy and they did not miss much about public school but they did miss the school parties.
So that first year of homeschool, and most years since, we have made and filled boxes for Valentines.
Not every family member participated this year but those of us who did last night had a great time.
|Elizabeth's box is a panda bear, she likes the Kung Fu panda and calls all pandas "Po"|
|Nina put sweettart conversation heats in Starbucks coffee bottles - can you see mine sticking out of the top of my box?|
|These next 3 pictures are SIL John's box|
Isn't he funny, using that grumpy photo of Elizabeth?
|this was on one end of John's box - I think he use paint prints of his feet and Elizabeth's hands.|
lots of google eyes

Thats one of our family traditons- it's really fun, not expensive the way we do it and something we look forward to every year.
