It's coming, it's coming! There are hearts everywhere in our house (which I love, especially when they are candy hearts) and everyone is getting in the spirit of giving things to others on Valentine's Day to make them smile. Livie gave me this giant perler bead penguin this week. I don't even know how long it took her (or how Matt has learned to iron multiple boards together), but it's really brightening up the dining room.
We've got the kids' Valentines all set for school too. Have you seen the straws that turn your milk chocolate or strawberry (there are little beads inside the straws)? They are kind of cute as is, but Auntie Sandy designed the coolest card for them and made them so awesome! I love that they are big kid enough for Jack, but the pink version is super cute for EJ's age as well. Seriously, I think these are so great (and Jack absolutely loved them too...he may have grinned ear-to-ear when he saw the design). Thanks so much Sandy!
We also made up some little gift packs for some special teachers (current and past), as well as the Grandmas. Nothing crazy...just some treats to let them know how much we value them!
Happy Valentine's Day! We're celebrating tomorrow with class parties and heart-shaped pizza and cookies...and then a long weekend too! Hope everyone has a fun day!
