We Love Mail

For FHE this Monday, we talked about love and how we show love to our family.  We asked the boys to tell us the ways that we can show love, and here is our list:

say I love you
respect them (by obeying your parents, doing good things)
say you're sorry when you do something wrong
take care of them
give hugs and kisses
draw pictures or write notes
give gifts
teach them how to do something new
pray for them

Oh how this list makes my heart happy!

Then, we decorated little mailboxes from the Target Dollar Spot, so that we could send one another little love notes and surprises throughout February.

Mr. One got up extra early the next morning to make little love notes to put in everyone's mailbox:  little hand drawn and colored hearts in favorite colors. 

He was so excited to announce that the mailbox flags were up, so we needed to check the mail.

Here's hoping we can all spread a little more love around our home!

  1. What a cute idea! I was just at Target and didn't see any mailboxes. Hmmm, I guess each Target gets it's own $ spot stuff.
