"Valentimes for my fwiends"

Lauren was busy yesterday afternoon making Valentine's for her friends at "school." She went with me last week to choose her Valentine's. It was a tough decision! Barbie? Disney Princess? Backyardigans? Pooh Bear? Cars? Hello Kitty? You name a design and they sold it! After a lot of painful deliberation, Lauren chose the Care Bears valentines.

So yesterday I broke out the box of Valentines, thinking Lauren would enjoy putting the stickers on each card - maybe choosing which Valentine we'd do next, etc. She had other plans - SHE wanted to WRITE!!! So here she is - writing on the cards like a big girl. (She really thinks she's writing letters).

As far as the other people in my family re: Valentine's Day...I think I have them all covered. I'm done w/Mark and I have a little something for each of the kids...except Grant. I suppose I should put something for him so when I take a picture it doesn't look like he was forgotten or treated like the youngest. =-) Do you "do" Valentine's Day? In my family we always got a little something. Maybe new socks or a CD (yeah - it was a TAPE back then....for my HUGE "boom box."...but whatever). How 'bout you?

We always got something special, whether it was chocolates or a movie. In college my mom sent me "You've Got Mail" for one Valentine's day. I love that movie! And my parents! Apparently my dad asked her to send me a package and she hasn't done it yet. Don't worry, I informed her that I accept late packages.
