Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids and a Love Story

Are you excited for LOVE day? We are. We've been painting the town-er-house RED.

In this last picture, you can see the cardstock mailboxes we made. Every day, we've been writing love notes to each other. It's my favorite part of V-day.

The framed heart is made of sprinkles glued with a glue stick. It was easy, if a bit messy. We did all the glueing on a cookie sheet, which helped a lot. (Learn from my mistake and glue the sprinkles onto red paper, so you can't see white through them.)
Guess what today is? Okay, I'll tell you. Today is the ninth anniversary of the day I met my Robby. I don't care what you say, Love At First Sight happens. It happened to us (and still does everyday...)

It was a cold, February night. I had decided against wearing my new Gap scarf because I didn't want to waste it on a blind date.

He was over an hour late.

I was playing a video game when he finally arrived. I'm so not into video games, but I am competitive, so I hardly looked up. I had to win first.

Both of us went on the date as a favor to a mutual friend. We didn't expect to actually like each other.

After that night, we were inseparable. We married 6 months and a day later, and I can say in all honesty, that I haven't regretted it for a moment.

He is SO my other half, my everything. We belong together.
