I rushed to the dollar store in hopes of finding a stray box of cool valentines somewhere but, as expected, all that remained was Power Rangers and Hannah Montana. (*sigh*)
I couldn't bring those home.
Instead I stopped by the craft store and purchased a pack of cardstock so that we could create our own valentines.
First I made All-a-Boy's. He likes Legos and Star Wars so here is what I came up with:
Next was Princess. She wanted Princesses for the girls and Star Wars for the boys. We found some generic printable valentines online to fit both of these criteria and printed them off for her.
Cowgirl came last. However, she insisted upon making her own valentines without any help from the computer... or from me. She disappeared into her room for awhile and then proudly brought out her creations for me to enjoy. It was hard to pick, but here are my favorites...
I told her she was not allowed to give this one to anyone until she's at least 25. It's in the back of her pajama drawer until then.
Again... this one was banned from her classroom. Besides, until this person learns to lay off of those tanning lotions, no proposals of marriage are gonna happen.
This one is obviously for a boy.
Then, seeing how we've obviously got a Star Wars obsession going on at our house, here are the cards for the Jedi in her life...
(translation: 'Leia' on me while we kiss!)
She was trying to think of something valentine-y that went with "Leia" and this is what she came up with. She was adequately embarrassed when I explained to her how it could be misconstrued, so she changed the words to: 'Princess Leia wants to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day.'
I just hope that her classmates will appreciate them as much as I did.
