with a month of LOVE coming



Okay, so I was out checking out my friendly bloggers sites and an idea popped into my mind that sounds SOOOOO fun that I am going to do it for Family Home Evening.

FHE [for short] is a night that we, as LDS - Mormons - spend together each week, singing, praying, reading scriptures, having a lesson, eating a yummy treat; and in our house we do the pledge of allegiance as well [so we have an assignment for every person.] If you want more info about my religion just link to it from the sidebar and below, picture of Christ.


So, here is my idea. Andrea had made a mailbox for her son and he was so enjoying it. I am going to have my kids make their valentines boxes after school Monday, and then have them make valentines for each other. Then we will have a mailperson assigned every week and on Mondays they can deliver the mail to the mailboxes for the entire month of February. Four weeks, four kids, four opportunities to write each other and to recieve mail from each other. I am pretty excited.

Do any of you have ideas to go along with this??? The plan is in the making so I would love any input. Thanks for reading, and for sharing your world with me and my family. We are better off because of you!!! Over and OUT!
And, speaking earlier of my religion. The one person who knows how to truly love; my main squeeze, is Christ. [okay, yes, that was cheesy] Anywho, He is the top of the love chain for every one of us. If you don't already have an idea of how much, go ahead, check into it for yourself. He loves me, and he Loves you. And what better time of life than now to find out just how much. Love yourself enough to look into it. It's amazing!!!

Great idea! I would of course add treats 'cause I add teats to everything...which, if you think about it, detracts from the definition of treat!

Hmmm, I think I'll go back to bed now. :D

Read your feelings post. Love it, I'm glad I can feel too. I actually used to think that feeling was a bad thing...tried to run from my emotions and feelings. I got better.

That sounds really cute. And kids get so excited about things like this! Thanks for the idea.

Last year my clever children made their "mailboxes" from large zip lock bags, which they decorated and then taped to the outside of their bedroom doors. They had so much fun delivering homemade mail into each other's "bags" it was amazing! Your kids will love your FHE and love spreading the love between themselves. I'm sure you'll end up with quite a few precious drawings and love-notes too!

Love this idea! Last year I heart attacked the kids' doors with love notes, and they've kept the notes on their doors all this time. Valentine's day is one of my faves :)

This is a great idea!!! what a great way to get the kiddos thinking of each other. How about adding another mailbox for Jesus? They can drop love notes, thank you notes or secret good deeds in the mail to Him as well.

The whole idea is fun!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
