My whole family has been sick with the flu. Ugh! We seemed to take turns with it, first my daughter, then my husband, then me. Finally, it seems to have left the house. Now I can get back into the swing of things.

Here's what we did for Valentine's day. I am so excited because my daughter just started preschool and now I get to do all those crafty gifts I've been dreaming about.

As craft happy as I am right now, the one thing that I don’t want to do is overtake the project. I do want my daughter to have a part in it. We had her write her name on all of the princess valentine’s day cards that she picked out. Then she got to pop the popcorn. Daddy made the chocolate, and she helped drizzle the chocolate on the popcorn. Then I put the popcorn in the bags and tied them. My daughter helped to stick the cards on the bags to finish them off. Voila! I think she did wonderful for her first gift craft for the kids at school, and most importantly, I think she had fun. Here’s how they turned out:

Of course, mommy had to have a valentine's day project too. For my coworkers I altered the mailboxes from the dollar spot and made felt fortune cookies to put inside the mailboxes. The felt fortune cookies were surprisingly easy. I made 60 of them in a couple of hours. Inside the fortune cookies I stuck little fun facts about Valentine's Day and love.
