For the folks on my Valentine list...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

We're on the group 2 Valentine's list. I just wanted to let those on our list know that our Valentine's will be on the way, but since we're sending from Canada and only just getting them out now, there's a chance they won't arrive by the 14th.  A good chance that they will -- but just in case, I wanted to let you know they ARE on the way.

 

Also, my daughter is making cute little card-pouch things... there are stickers *inside* for the kids to have, just make sure you open up the top and look inside.  I think it's easy to miss the fact that there's actually stuff inside them, so again I just wanted everyone to know.  :)  So if you get a card from Caileigh in Canada, don't miss the stickers inside.  :)

We sent all of list one out weeks ago.

 

List three is going out today and Monday. I ran out of stamps again. :D

 

The kids RUN to the mailbox at this point. It's so much fun!!

We are on List 3 and sent our Valentines out last Saturday. Hopefully, many of them have arrived safely by now.

 

*Edited, as requested, to remain in compliance with the UA.

Just curious if anyone else from list 1 has mailed anything yet? We’ve only got 1 so far (probably from Jennifer3141 hehe) and my son is chomping at the bit to start getting more!! lol.gif

Im on list 2 and mailed our way early ( end of january) and recieved 6-7 envelopes for DS.  The OCD person in me has kept  a print out and crosses them off as they arrive.  I will shred the list once they all come in, or the end of February.  DS is having a blast with this and I have no idea what the UVA was... hummm

We mailed our list three valentines out Thursday the 3rd so they should reach everyone before Valentines day :)

The mailbox is going to be full this week!!

 

We are almost done with list 3. They'll all be flying out tomorrow.

 

Thanks for all the work, mamas. The kids are going to have a blast. We've got two envelopes in their little homemade mailboxes right now and it's killing my kids. One of the envelopes has a mysterious bulge. The other envelope, my DD SWEARS must be the princess fairy Valentine she loves because the "enbelopelooksjustthesame!"

 

It makes me laugh that they are as excited for V-Day as they were for Xmas.

 

How are you distributing the cards?

 

I'm going to make them each a Hershey's kiss trail out to their mailboxes and I've little baskets of goodies from Mom and Dad made up. All the Valentines that are rolling in go inside their little foam mailboxes. And then we're hosting the Valentine party for our little group of homeschool friends.

 

A little over a week away!! :)

DS opens them as they come along... I check the PO box 2x a week.   The P.O is part of my city loop of - P.O Box, library, grocery, gas station etc.    Usually Tuesday and Friday/Saturday.

I'm keeping all of DD's cards for her to open on the big day. We've had a rough year and won't be able to do much to celebrate, so opening the cards will make her day special. luxlove.gif

We missed all the drama too. We just got back from vacation and ours went in the mail today! :)

To tell the truth, the idea of withholding their cards until Valentine's day had never even occurred to me!  I think we prefer the idea of spreading out the joy as they trickle in a few at a time... there's the excitement of checking the mail every day, and then it gives us the chance to really enjoy and appreciate each card, rather than an individual creation just being lost in a mass of two dozen cards.  

 

But now it's given me the idea of having her do a craft to make a container for them, to keep them after she's opened the envelopes.  I think she'd LOVE this, and otherwise they're just going to get scattered through the house.  My older son might not be interested in the idea, but I'll give him the option too if he wants it.  :)

Heather in CAN, we're on list 2 too and are putting ours in the mail tomorrow (Tue) so they might not reach you by the 14th either.  But then you can spread the love around a bit longer... [that's my story and i'm sticking to it bag.gif]

 

The snow must be getting to everyone. lol.gif

I've gotten so many Valentines from list three but NOTHING from list one and ours went out weeks ago. I'm wondering if list one is just totally inactive. :(

Still got time though so maybe Saturday will just be a flood? lol

I think I am list one and most of ours went out on Monday.  A couple stragglers went yesterday.  So,  I would expect you to get ours tomorrow at the latest.  My kids did separate envelopes for everyone so you should get three in the mail per registered child from us.

Hello, all... we are on list 1, and received your awesome valentines and letter, Jenn-- they are up on our fridge, and i loved hearing about your life... thanks for taking the time to share and stuff the envelopes with goodies.  I apologize for taking so long to get ours out.  We finally made them, and will get them to the PO today.  I didn't allow for enough time to get them all there my Vday-- so sorry, everyone!  So glad to be part of this exchange ;)
