Love Notes

Last night for our Family Home Evening activity we wrote each other little notes and then taped them to our bedroom doors. The girls were so excited to show everyone the notes they wrote; and they were tickled reading the nice things everyone said about them. Here are some of the notes:

"Dear Emily, Thank you for volunteering in everything that nobody wants to do! You always make people happy. Love, McKenna"

"Chloe, every time I see you, it makes me want to smile. (except when you're crying, which makes me want to cry also. I love you!" -Daddy

"Dear Summer, I think you are a talented girl, but a bit sassy. I still love you. -Lydia"

"Dear Mom: Thank you for taking care of my for my whole life! I am glad you are not Ms. Hanigan. Love, McKenna"

"Dear daddy, I think you are a graet dad and I love the shapes that you make our pancakes. Love, Emily."

I think we'll continue adding notes to the doors through Valentines Day. I'd love to maintain the awesome feeling that was in our home last night!

Haha. I'm glad you're not Mrs. Hannigan, too. I'm sure she'd be way less talented at blogging than you.

What a great way to follow through on Elder Bednar's talk! I love them! There is power in expressing love.

This is SO cute. Its so fun to see what they recognize about everyone.

This is what Adam & I decided to do for each other for Valentines Day this year! We are decorating valentines boxes with things around the house and then writing a note to each other every day.

Happy early Valentines! We love and miss all of you!
