On Valentine's morning, we ate heart shaped pancakes.
For the two weeks before Valentine's Day, we wrote love notes to each other on hearts and put them on each person's bedroom door. We missed a couple of days but it was fun to read the things that we love and appreciate about each other. The girls still have their hearts on their door. I think it helped increase love and unity in our home.
On Valentine's Day, the 6th grade at Hunter had their annual Valentine's Dance. The teachers teach the students how to dance, how to act, and each student is required to dance with 3-4 people (they fill out a dance card in advance to reserve specific dances for each person). Ella wasn't super excited about it but she ended up enjoying it. A dear friend, Christie, was nice enough to send me a photo of Ella dancing with one of her partners. Ella is growing up so quickly and is becoming quite a beauty.
