happy valentines day
When Valentine's Cards came out this year, I rolled my eyes at the same selection my boys get to choose from every. single. year. I'm pretty sure they don't even make new cards. They just ship out the same Iron Man, Spiderman, Batman, NBA, etc. Maybe it was my nauseous pregnant state that wouldn't let me buy them after seeing my boys reach for the same cards they gave out last year. In one quick trip to Target, I decided we were making homemade Valentine Card's this year. Even more surprising, my boys were totally on board! We had so much fun making these together this year that I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to the buy-in-a-box kind.
This was also the first year that Payton got to make his own Valentine Box...so exciting! This was always a highlight of my childhood although I can't even remember what any of mine looked like. I just remember it was fun. Payton and Tim whipped up this robot. Unfortunately, Payton is going to miss out on one of the funnest school days of the year because he's home sick today. His robot and Valentine cards are going to his class to make his debut without him!
Happy Valentine's Day!
