Valentine's day

We don't usually do much for this holiday, but little girls make it a whole lot more fun. It's amazing how paper hearts and hand made cards for friends can be so exciting. It's so nice to see how much they want to show their love. So the heart chains went up and we embraced the heart doilies, glitter, glue and paint mess. This year our newest Auntie had a tea party for all the girls. There was pink, and tulips, and chocolate and ballet so it was pretty much a little girl heaven.

The sisters and their red hot Valentiney shoes.


Aunt Trish brought out lots of white tulle to dance and play with.

Tea parties are so exhausting.

The only thing that would have made it better was the presence our NJ cousins. Thank you Aunt Trish for the lovely memory with the girls and hopefully a new tradition.

I LOVE this, Linda. And you know, it's so true how little girls make it a holiday worth celebrating: I found that making Valentines with my students brought out the pink/heart/red/candy-lover in me as well :-)
