A Home-Made Valentine

I haven't been very good about updating this week. I apologize- it is just that my head is still in a knot with You Tube. I figured out how to save the video to my library, downloaded a more current version of Flip, and tried to upload again...a storm caused us to lose Internet connection. Still no luck and the camera is locked up. Sigh-

More good news. Our shower is no longer leaking into the living room. Thank you Andrew!!!!! The ceiling is repaired and looks pretty good.

Next problem, no heat. The furnace is not working again. I feel like I have this on-going list at all times. I get through one obstacle and the next one jumps in front of me.

On a happy note, Sutton made his Valentine's. There is just something special about a home-made Valentine. I had the cardstock and the glitter. I had to purchase googly eyes and lollipops. He decorated the wings with a Zig glue pen and sprinkled chunky glitter all over them and the floor and the bar downstairs. I hot glued googly eyes to the lollipops and cut a slit to slide the lollipop into the butterfly's wings.
"You make my heart FLUTTER, Valentine" {love, Mr.S}
The left-over red lollipops we added some punched flower parts and tied them into a bouquet. It made a sweet teacher gift with a Starbucks card wrapped in the little pink box. Mr. S's Valentine's box is an oldie but good-y. We made it back in kindergarten. He still loves cars, so it is a keeper.
Send me good vibes with my You Tube account...I need it!












Love, Kara
