Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
When I was growing up my mom always got us kids something at Valentine's Day and Easter.....I am 34 and she still does!!!!! (And I still LOVE it!!!). So I have continued this tradition on with my kids. It is never anything HUGE, just a little something to say "We love you". So as I was looking around Target yesterday I found some AMAZING deals!!!! Jake is into reading right now........big time!!!! He had $15 dollars to spend last week and bought books with it!!!! Anyway, Magic Treehouse is a series that he really likes and they had a set of 4 that were originally $15 clearanced out for $7!!!! So, I snatched them up. THEN I was browsing through the girly section and at the end of the aisle they had a Baby Chou Bye Bye doll that was originally $40 on clearance for $9!!!!!! Now, I probably will save this one for Jaise for her birthday because I can't have her opening this HUGE box and he opens a set of books. It has to appear "fair" even though they practically cost the same!!!!
So, do you buy little Valentine's Day gifts for anyone?
If you do, what kinds of things do you buy?

I usually buy a little something for my kids...not too much.

My mom used to get me a little box of See's Candy every year...she passed away 2 years ago. She always made V-day happy for me...and my birthday is the day before!

I do like to buy my boys little holiday gifts! My mom did the same thing growing up and now I am passing the love along...

I love giving gifts to people and will jump at any excuse to give a gift. I always give gifts for Valentine's day. All the kids get Valentine's shirts and socks at the beginning of Feb. Then on the day I give books, games, special cards, that type of thing.

my Mom did the same thing and we do exchange gifts, now that we have Will we spend much less and don't go out for V-Day.

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
