Today is the big day, the Evans City Elementary School's Valentine's Day Party. And this is Eva's Valentine's Box, well bowl. After the party it will be our dogs new water bowl. This is our third time using this theme. The first time my daughter Chloe used a (new) dog bowl filled with candy hearts and Snoopy was propped again the bowl. Eva used this idea in first grade with candy as kibble and a small dog inside the bowl. But here we are in 2011 and candy is a banned substance in our school district. Today Eva will pass out cards and pencils to her classmates.
Our cats are quite sweet. The plan, I thought, was to take not so nice pictures of the cats and then paint in tongues. Like they are sticking their tongues out at the dogs. But Eva changed her mind. Just like the bowl with a stuffed dog was enough for the party until she got home from school yesterday and started pulling out boxes half her size with the hope of expanding her Valentine's box. After an evening of,"we have one night to get this done" and " how are you going to carry that on the bus?" this is where we ended up.
I have three more years of Valentine's Day boxes a head of me. I can do this.....
I would also like to wish my dear friend Marge Happy Birthday!
She is not an official follower but after I post things like--I ran my dog over, the washing machine flooded my house or I got publish, I get a phone call from Marge.
Marge your the best!
