Over the last few years, I have been collecting and making things for Anna for her own celebrations throughout the year, and I gave her her very own "Celebration Box" for graduation in June. When she was packing for college, she went through her box, and she picked a few things out of it to take with her out of the box: sidewalk chalk, birthday hats, a Valentine banner, a trick-or-treat Halloween banner, and a birthday banner. It was such a joy to get her message that she used the birthday banner at a special dinner for a new friend last weekend.
Here is Anna's box and a few things that were in it:
Lenten wreath and Easter banner
a book in the celebration box
