Valentine's Day Tradition

My favorite part of Valentine's day every year are the handmade valentines that my dad makes for me.  His dad made them for him and his siblings and he continued the tradition. My dad used to make them for my brother too but once my brother got old enough, he didn't quite appreciate them like I do. This year it was even more special because Lucy received her first one.

The front of the can tell Lucy enjoyed playing with it because it's all wrinkled

One of the valentines I got this year

I've saved mine over the years and have over 60!

One of the older ones he made me...

and the inside (you can tell it's old just because of the model of the car!)

I'm sure once Lucy is old enough, she'll love getting these every year too!
