Free High Fives!

This project was my favorite project we have done so far!
 It cost no money, took 2 minutes to prepare, and we had SO MUCH FUN! 
We stood on the pathway that goes around a lake, and offered "Free high fives!" 

We gave out about 30, and the best part was the smiles. 
 Once everyone saw the sign they started smiling and not one person passed up our offer. We got to talk to so many people, and it made us all feel really happy.

 You could do this anywhere, front porch, corner of your street, at work, at school or at the park. It just felt good to get out and interact with strangers!

Love Thy Neighbor

"...Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Matthew 22:39 
 Do a good deed for a neighbor. 
We decided to wash our neighbor's garage door, front door and porch. Doing service with our kids takes time. We all have busy schedules to keep. But, I promise you, if you take a little time to serve those around you (this took 5 minutes) the reward will be great. ❤️

Valentine's Day Heart Attack!

 This week we heart attacked a family in our community that recently lost their husband and father. 
We wrote little love notes on hearts and attached them to skewers so we could stick them all around their yard. 

We wrote specific things we loved about each person, and we found ourselves sitting at the table talking about this awesome family for an hour! 

My daughter told me, 

"I really like Valentine's Day because we get to give all of our love!" 

We invited friends to join us, to make sure there was no doubt how much this family is loved! 
Grab some friends, paper, makers, and scissors, and 
 spread some love!

Placemat Love!

Start February off right! Gather your little loves and spread some love! We asked for some extra lap mats from In-n-Out and then decorated the blank side. 
Deliver these to nursing homes to  be used as cheerful place mats. Or, spread the love at home and have your kids decorate a place mat for a sibling or parent!
