Magic Marker Monday: Happy Valentine's Day!


I know Valentine's Day has come and gone, but I just had to share these cute Valentines from the boys :).

Here's one that Little Bitty brought home from school: I love the picture they put on it :), and his little handprints!

Here's one that Cuddlebug made for me, as you can see he's been learning about the solar system so that was the theme of his card :). He's got quite a lot of detail there, too.

The note reads: "Dear Mama, Happy Valentine's Day! On the tv, we see many things like Vermont Teddy Bear, Pajama-gram. When you are at work we miss you. Love, Cuddlebug, Bearhug, Dad, and the solar system!"

LOL, his reference to the Valentine's commercials cracked me up, those were on non-stop! And his sweet note about missing me, you know I had to give him a big hug when I read that!

Bearhug made me three heart-shaped cards, each with a separate note. You can see a bit of the "solar system" theme in his notes too, and I love how his sense of humor shines through, especially in the third note:

"Dear Mama, I love you! I know what to do on summer. We're going to swing, camp, and look for a green flash, Mars and Venus. Love, Bearhug"

"Dear Mama, I love you. I love my family, grandma & grandpa, uncles, everyone. Love, Bearhug. p.s. Earth is our home."

"Dear Mama, I love when you give us DS night. Love, Bearhug.
p.s. It's a secret.
p.p.s. don't tell anyone.
p.p.p.s. for that I love you.
p.p.p.p.s. who's doing this?
p.p.p.p.p.s. stop it.
p.p.p.p.p.p.s. oh, it's me."

LOL :)

"DS night" is when we let them stay up and play Nintendo DS in bed (most Friday nights).

Check out their handwriting! A couple of years ago it would have taken them half the page or more just to write their names. They've really done a good job of learning to write smaller and more legible!

Oh my goodness! I'm laughing so hard I have tears -- tears I tell you!

"p.p.p.p.s. who's doing this?
p.p.p.p.p.s. stop it.
p.p.p.p.p.p.s. oh, it's me."

That is absolutely priceless -- and I love the little note telling you that the whole solar system loves you too! ;) thanks for sharing -- you just made my week!

They are so sweet! I love kids artwork, the only problem I have is where to store it - I like to save ALL OF IT!

Wow, that is great. I love how their personalities shine through. And it really cracked me up that you actually got a card from the solar system. How much better can you get than that??
