Lately it seems that there is too much to be sad about. My heart stings thinking of Kobe Bryant and can only hope he was able to comfort his daughter in their last moments. I have had to witness mothers losing babies and it’s all so heartbreaking.
It would be easy to wallow in this sadness but I think it’s best to hold our loved ones tighter and be reminded that we are never guaranteed anything. I want to celebrate every little thing and show my gratitude as much as possible.
I love to celebrate even the “little” holidays with the kids to keep the fun alive. Last year we started our celebration of Valentine’s Day when we were in Disneyland (recaps HERE and HERE )
It was so much fun seeing the park decorated for Valentines Day!
The kids really love exchanging valentines with their friends, so we will go to a Valentines Party with friends again this year.
It’s also fun seeing them dressed up in cute themed clothing
It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, for Cannon’s first Valentines we just got him a red heart balloon. We took pictures of him with it and he enjoyed playing with it for a couple weeks.
He also made paintings for his dad and grandparent’s that year.
This year I am giving them little Valentines baskets with little treats like stickers and small wooden toys. I will share the baskets when I have them together. We will also have fun food like pink pancakes or heart shaped pizza to celebrate.
We will have little celebrations for St. Patricks Day and Easter as well coming up. Having these to plan and look forward to also makes winter a little more fun for me.
Do you try to celebrate the little things?
