Countdown to Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is two weeks away, so we decided it was time to get out the Valentine's Day decorations. I like to do different decorations each month during the winter, because winter around here is so grey and we need something cheery in the house.
The heart garland is a new addition this year.
(I wish I could remember which blog I got the idea from, but I can't)
The little mailboxes gave me an idea:
A countdown to Valentine's Day.
Each day until February 14 I am going to put a little something in each of the kid's mailboxes.
They will know the surprise has arrived when the little flag on the side of the box is up.

First I had to personalize Blair's box.
I really should stop free-handing these things, since I seem to be terrible at centering.

Today the surprise was a little lame, since I spent most of my time setting up the decorations and making the heart banner, in addition to putting on and taking off snowsuits.

Even so, candy is always a hit with my kids.

You are such a creative mommy. Nothing wrong with using hearts to help center things, either. ;) It's nice to celebrate other holidays since you so cruelly don't celebrate halloween.
