Wish I'd taken a picture of them but my lollipop valentine's for my kids turned out so cute! I was really pleased. The kids were too until I forbid them to eat their lollipops at school. Snicker! They were so hopped up on sugar after our party it was a little scary. And, I didn't let them eat any candy -- just the cupcakes and cookies. Eeeeek!
And, all the candy I got! Wow! Stunning! I think it put me off Valentine's Day for awhile. Just too much! And, I got flowers from a Math Club student! And, I got a red rose from another teacher -- my students saw him coming into the building with a bunch of roses. That was a nice touch! But, best of all, I got a homemade card from one of my students that said, "To my favorite teacher ever!" Awwwww! And, my hardest core student got me a heart-shaped box of chocolates. A day of surprises.
But, still, it was really fun to make the kids' treats. And, to be inspired by Martha . . . well, that's just icing. I did improve on her design -- instead of cutting the hearts out, I used the school's die cut machine. Much better! So, that's my Martha Moment for the week!
As for home. Well, Mr Wonderful and I did not celebrate this holiday. We're both dieting so chocolate was out (thanks goodness given the amount of candy that flowed into our house). We're broke so roses were out and the card thing just didn't happen. I guess when you are coming up on 18 years of marriage little proofs that love exists aren't as important as the big ones like . . . keeping the toilet paper roll filled and buying tuna! :) Hmmmm, I'd better go to the store tomorrow! :)
