...we LOVED having our kitchen ones plastered with people we love through the Christmas season. Yes, it was worth all the Christmas card chaos to get to see so many faces we love for a month. This was one wall:
and this was the other:
After much deliberation from the judging committee (Dave and the kids) this one came out on top for our little winner for the year:
There were a bunch of great ones, but can you blame them for choosing this one? It's pretty good.
We were so sad to take all our friends down...but each year we cut them down a little in size and keep them in photo books so we can see them again (along with the previous years) next year around Christmas.
After we took them down it felt like we just moved into a new house our walls were so darn bare...
so luckily it was time for our valentines love notes to go up:
For FHE like a month before Valentine's Day we all write love notes to each other on these hearts and "heart attack" our kitchen and family room. (I can take zero credit for this idea since I totally stole it from Nicole...thanks Nicole!) I love to see what the kids come up with and they love it too. My favorite are Dave's to me though (although no pictures of those ones...a little too mushy...ha ha). kindly ignore how weird and yellow our cabinets look in this picture...There's just nothing like getting (and giving) a good love note.
