Valentine's Day boxes

My girls got to make Valentine boxes this year for school. At first I was really excited about it. I LOVED doing this as a kid. However, I must say, it's not nearly as much fun as a mom. Between pulling Kate and Carter off the table a zillion times, watching glue and tape go everywhere, and getting burned by the glue gun, I think I liked it more as a kid. But, the girls loved it and thought their boxes were beautiful. They came home from school with the boxes filled and were excited to show me their treasures. That part was really fun. I guess it was all worth it.

Valentine's Day Recap:
Just thought I would write what we did for the holiday this year. It's really not all that exciting and I am writing this as a journal entry so don't read it if you don't want to.

First off, we all have fought the stomach flu. (Alyssa's bug passed on.) Carter got it at midnight two nights before Valentine's day,Halle got it the night before V-day and I fought a gurgly stomach the day before as well. Luckily it was a short lived bug and was done in a few hours. Halle thankfully felt well enough to go to school the next morning and enjoy the Valentine's festivities. Jarom is in Boise this week and called me the afternoon on V-day to say he had been throwing up in the hotel. ("Worst Valentine's ever." He said.) I gave the kids boxes of chocolates in the morning and new p.j.'s in the evening. Halle and I joined Alyssa at school for lunch, (Mini Chimis, Alyssa's favorite) and recess and then we ate strawberry waffles for dinner. It was a nice day all in all, however we did miss our dad.

Sounds like you guys had a great day! We had the same flu deal a few weeks ago. I feel your pain. Glad it went through everybody quickly. I also hear you on making the valentine boxes. I loved it as a kid too, but it's never as much fun as an adult. Their boxes turned out great!

Cute boxes! I don't remember mine ever looking that good. Looks like you had a great Valentine's Day. Poor Jarom.

I am positive that my Valentine boxes never looked that good! They're so creative!

Poor Jarom on his worst V-Day ever. There is nothing worse than the flu.
