So the kids and I decided to make homemade Valentine's this year. We found some cute ones in family fun magazine. We made flowers with a lollipop center for the girls and owls for the boys. It took us a good part of an afternoon and after cutting hundreds of hearts, and other shapes I was starting to realize why all the other "smart" parents spent 2.00 to buy spongebob valentines. :) And even though it took FOREVER...the kids thought it was pretty cool that they brought Valentines to school that they had actually made. And I felt like I racked up a few "good mommy" pts.
