Valentines Run Amok

February 13th, 2011

9:55pm on the eve of Valentine’s Day and I finally have all of Miss Mouse’s recycled-art valentines ready for school tomorrow. Josh suggests that perhaps I let the project run away with me.

I won’t say that he’s wrong.

I will say, though, that I am thrilled with the results. Two Conversation Heart Letters plus two dozen very cute, hand-made valentines to share with her teachers and classmates that are a happy mix of her art and my assembly.

In addition, my strawberry heart-shaped gelatin jigglers are in the fridge chilling for dinner tomorrow. The Valentine sugar cookies are thawed and ready to be decorated. And my bread dough is defrosting in anticipation of becoming heart-shaped calzones. Yes, I’d say we’re enjoying Valentine’s Day this year!

    Did I somehow miss the fact that your middle name has apparently been changed to Martha??
