Valentines Day

I know I am a few days late, but I wanted to share a few of our Valentine’s Day activities.  We made these cute little butterfly valentines for Hannah’s friends at school and dance:

Hannah also enjoyed making her grandparents and cousins cards.  I bent a toilet paper roll into a heart and she stamped away.  She ended up making cards for her teachers as well.  Once she started, she didn’t want to stop!  If you can’t tell, this girl takes her art work very seriously. I promise, she was having fun.

I really love how much fun the girls have doing projects with you:) And, since I received one of these great Valentine's Day cards in the mail, it made me smile and have much joy, too! Something handmade is the best gift of all.
