1. I took a potato and cut it in half. Then, with a knife, I carved an X on one side and an O on the other. Then with red paint, I stamped red X’s and O’s all over the boxers. I then painted my lips with the same red paint and kissed the boxers as well. Just make sure it’s non-toxic paint if you put it on your lips!
2. I made a pillow case with iron-on transfers of our pictures. I then put a little note on the bottom that read: So how’s this for “sleeping with me?” He absolutely loved it!
3. Another item that Scott still keeps set up in his room is a Build a Bear that I put a voicebox into. I let him know that I would still be there waiting for him when he returned home, etc.
4. Inside Wal-Mart at the front door, there are tags that you can have engraved with your pets name, etc. So, I had a tag made that had a very romantic saying so he could wear it with his dog-tags.
5. I also decorated the outside of every care package I mailed. Not only did the box include the address, customs labels, etc, but I also drew pictures. My favorite was the “You are my sunshine…” all around the perimeter of the box.
6. For my soldiers birthday and any other holiday, I made him a cake. Not just a regular cake, but I made it in a mason jar and it can be eaten with a spoon. Wrapped in bubble wrap, it’s easy to ship and lasts for 3 MONTHS!! The trick is, put the seal on while it’s still hot so that it seals properly.
7. At Christmas time, instead of hanging up ornaments on my tree, I had yellow ribbons. Not just any ribbons though, I wrote the name of every soldier in Scotts platoon on a ribbon and then tied them to the tree. I then took pictures of each ribbon and mailed them to each soldier as the front of a Christmas Card. This may not sound Romantic, but Scott thought so because I had taken the time to remember other soldiers in his platoon that may not have received anything for Christmas.
