Aunty cards

We have been working on some Valentine's cards for the last two weeks around here. And really, it's not that we made many cards, it just takes us that long to get a project finished. That's just the way it is with these little people. There were many times I fooled myself into believing that great progress was being made toward the completion of these cards, and that's just when these little elves would want to switch things up a bit. I would look around and find one gluing the cards to the furniture and the other tiniest elf deciding to just make a quick snack of them.

But eventually things came together, as they always do, and we were able to seal them up and send them out (most of them anyway). Owen was using the globe to show me where they would end up after we mailed them. "No dear, it's Minnesota, not Mongolia."
Owen was a bit sad to watch his letters fall into the mailbox with no way to get them back out again because really, is there anything more fun when your TWO (almost three) than putting things in a box, and then taking things out of a box, and then putting things in a box, and then taking things out of a box and then......? No. No. Nothing is more fun than that. And so it was with a heavy heart that he dropped his last letter in the box. As he tried to peek through the opening to watch it fall, "That's Minnesota in there," he said shaking his head in disbelief. Oh, I love that kid.

I suppose we should head to the kitchen now to make some heart shaped cookies with little red sprinkles. Cookies will cheer that boy up!
Have a Happy Valentines day. Have a great weekend.
