My Valentine's

Once again John out did himself... and got his girls their heart's desire. For baby Em he got a Blue's Clues DVD. Anna got the Hannah Montana CD she has been eyeballing for almost a year.

Me? I got an new CD of an artist I have been curious about since seeing her on a commercial. She performed at the Grammys. Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae. I really like it, she has such a soothing , slightly raspy voice.

What I really loved was this handmade card from Anna. It's not fancy, and on it's front is a single sticker. What was written inside set my heart aflame. She wrote it all by herself, phonetically. :D

Translation:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
You smell sweet
And nice too.
But most of all
I love you.

And a little something she made me on her snow day. :O)

What Anna made for daddy, with a bit of help from mom...

And Emma's for her daddy, both made with craft foam,
crayons, paper and glitter paint.

Those are beautiful. Monkey Butt made me a valentine. It is a heart and he tore up pieces of red and pink construction paper and glued to it so I would have a "piece" of his heart. I almost cried. Bry-onicle gave me a Star Wars valentine that said we should rule the galaxy.. I agree...but I'm biased.

I love these Valentines! They are soooooo sweet! We have dogs. They don't make Valentines... just chew up your socks.

Kid-crafted cards are just the best aren't they? I keep mine in my cedar chest and I know Ashlyn will love to see her handiwork when she's older.

Those homemade cards are the best, aren't they? Just wait till they're older and you can show them what they made for you!

Oh my gosh these are great! I heart your little girls! You know what i got from Norm? (he read it aloud for me) Dear mommy, when i say that i hate you, i am just joking. I really love you. And when I say you are a buttface? Im joking about that too. Signed "norm" yeah he said "signed".
