robot valentines

Sorry I haven't blogged in over a week...I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately. With Valentine's Day approaching and Gavin's Valentine party yesterday, I did have to make time to make some Valentines.

Have you seen the new issue of Scrapbooks Etc? They have the cutest little robot valentines. The body is a mini hersheys candy bar wrapped in patterned paper. When I first saw them, I KNEW that those were the valentines that my Gavin was going to take to school!!

So I purchased some googly eyes, candy bars, kids glue know, the kind of stuff that I REALLY should already have on hand :) And I had such high hopes. Images of me and Gavin sitting at the table working on the valentines...laughing, bonding...having a great time.

Instead, I had to deal with a cranky and bossy 5 year old who only made ONE valentine. Lucky for me, Grandma and Nanny were here to help me. Between the 3 of us, we made 24 of those babies.

Can you see the valentine that Gavin made?

I think his turned out to be the cutest. I really wanted to keep it, but he insisted on giving it to a girl in his class that he really likes. Uh oh, looks like mommy is second best. :(
