A Valentine For Each Day

 With only three days left until February 14, anticipation is at fever pitch.  The kids have been busy making cards for siblings, Daddy, cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends as they count down the hours until the big day.
It all started with foam stickers.
Then came tissue paper creations.
On another day they used markers to decorate coffee filters
 and then dripped water on them to blur the colors.
 The last project (unless they think of someone else they HAVE to add to the list in the wee hours of Valentine's Eve) involved smashing up bits of leftover wax crayons and
 sprinkling the little bits all over heart shaped pieces of waxed paper. 
 After adding another piece of waxed paper on top, and sandwiching the entire creation between sheets of newspaper, 
a little heat from an iron melts the was crayon pieces and creates heart shaped stained-glass valentines.
Don't you hope that you are on their Valentine's Day Card list?

Why? You were a great mom!

No no Dana, you're being far too easy in her. She was a failure, look at all the unproductive idler children she raised and the near-criminal airheads that they married.... wait, what?

I'm nervous nobody replied to that... I WAS kidding....
