This Christmas we started a new tradition. Starting at the beginning of December I printed up a bunch of stationary with the words, "I love you because...", and got a sparkly red mailbox. I told my family that during the month they could write love letters to the other members of our family and stick them in the mailbox, and then we would read them on Christmas Eve. They were pretty excited about it. Stella wrote many love letters throughout the month, and others just wrote one to each member. These are pictures of us receiving our letters on Christmas Eve and getting ready to read them aloud. It was a wonderful night and I know everyone felt special and loved. This is definitely a tradition we will carry on.
This is Jed writing his last minute love letters. I had a couple last minute letters to write too
(Christmas Eve sure does sneak up on you fast).
