I love decorating. I like staring at a space for a long time thinking of all the possibilities that could go there. Yet I don’t tend to decorate for all the holidays like some people do.
In fact I don’t really celebrate many of the holidays at all. I’m not really sure why. Maybe because my mother never really did.
But this year is going to be different. I have decided that I am going to grab ahold of Valentines day.
As my facebook friends know, I have been using the Valentines decorations that I see everywhere to remind me to pray for the heart of my children. It is my prayer that they would desire the things of God.
Now I have come up with another Valentine idea.
Since my husband and I have no traditions for this day, I have decided to start one….it’s never to late to start a tradition right?
I want Valentines Day to be a time that my grandchildren remember spending with their grandparents. We will be having our first annual Valentines Day party at our house this year. No parents invited!
I am so excited. Yes I can basically have these two grandbabies anytime I want them.
But I want them to always remember how loved they felt on this day. I want them to have all kinds of great memories of all the fun we had together year after year.
I am not really sure what we will be doing….if you have any ideas for a 20 month old and a 2 month old please pass it on. I just know I want it to be different than any other time. It has to feel like a party.
What plans do you have for Valentines Day? Do you tend to decorate for it?
