Happy (or Hoppy) Valentine's Day!!!

The kids this year used the computer for the first time to make their cards for classmates.  I thought they came out pretty darn cute!  Each kid knew what they wanted and had fun designing their own.

EWL's Vals
Emma's: a la Andy Goldsworthy.

MRL's Vals
Maria's: toad - found last summer locally.

NJL's Vals
Nate's:  a coqui frog from our PR trip.  (He has used "Hoppy Valentines" for the last 3 or 4 years.  I can't even remember.)

Then, using this post as inspiration I made a brown paper heart for each family member and we all had turns adding things we love about them.  This was so much fun!

We read them at breakfast.  Nate said "I really love compliments!"  Well, who doesn't!!?  It was a great start to the day.


  1. What a great idea to do family valentines! Love it.

  2. Those hearts a are a wonderful idea! I love how they look all filled out. They would be great for a birthday or gift to someone special!
