Valentine Trip






Well not actually on Valentine's Day.. But its my gift to the family this Valentine's Day.. because I love them so much!! We are going on a 10 day trip to Hawaii in May! For those of you who have been there, you are probably thinking "big deal". But we've never been there! I'm sooo excited! I am and always have been a tropical girl... I love the water! Maybe it's the Pisces in me?!? Well, I'm not going to spill the details.. Just in case my kids decide to visit here.. (*inserting prayer* please, please, don't visit!) LOL. But here are the projects I have been working on for my kids to let them know... They will get these on Valentine's day... The card that goes inside the pocket card is their ticket.. not the real one, but mom's ticket to them.. I tried to make the mail boxes look like huts.. Let me tell ya, trying to come up with some of this was interesting to say the least! And sooooo messy.. I'm surprised they haven't caught on... The mess has been sitting out here on the table for the past month! They probably walk by and think its just mom's craft stuff.... I tried not to be obvious... But here's the funny part... They saw in my bedroom closet that I had some chocolate frogs for them. LOL So they totally think they are getting chocolate frogs!!! Too funny.. Oh boy, I really hope they don't see this!!!

That's exciting! I love how you created the mailboxes & the pocket cards to reveal your surprise!

We are leaving on March 11th for Hawaii (Oahu) for 1 week so I feel your excitement. For me & the kid's it's our first time there but, my hubby has been there a few times.

This is so cute!!! I'm a Pisces, too and love the water. We've only been to Hawaii once, but it was lovely. You'll truly enjoy yourself.
