Mushy Valentine pleasure



I am posting this because I am a sucker for all things made by children. Completefoolsucker. I still have a picture on my fridge made by the daughter of a woman I did a project with three years ago.

Now that Fly is (sort of) able to make me things, my heart does a little flip-flop when "makes" things.

I am going to need lots of picture frames and keepsake boxes and maybe a second refrigerator.

Fly made me a Valentine's Day craft in the church nursery. It's a flower made out of a paint impression of his hand, with a heart in the flower.

For your mushy Valentine's Day pleasure, here is the poem glued to the Valentine:

A piece of me
I give to you.
I painted this flower
To say "I love you."

The heart is you,
The hand is me,
To show we are friends --
The best there can be.

I hope you save it
And look back someday
At the flower we shared
On this special day.

A very sweet craft and poem I'll be stealing for future birthdays cards for the kids to make. Thanks for sharing.

It's the pride of my kids when they make something for me that chokes me up every time.

That's just way too cute. I've kept those things in a special box. When they are in their twenties and you look back...well it's priceless.

Gosh, he's looking so cute and grown-up in this pic.

Has his hair thickened out ?
He looks so *different*

Cute as, though :)
