  1. No, snow storms here in Ohio to spoil a Valentine’s Party, but my son almost missed his party because of an illness. Luckily, he was feeling much better this morning. I was worried last night though. He was so excited to pass out the valentines he made. I am so glad he was able to go.

    Happy Valentine’s Day – eat lots of chocolate!

    • Ahhh…thanks! Happy Valentine’s Day to you as well!

      I’m really glad he made it for his Valentine’s party at school, that really would be so sad after all that work! I remember those days and it was always so important. 🙂

  2. This looks so cute. Yet another kids book I want for me.
