today harper had school and her first ever valentine's party. we baked heart shaped sugar cookies and made little cards for her to pass out to her friends. she also passed out the princess valentines that were a last resort during one particular shopping excursion. she picked out her outfit and ran around all morning telling me that she was going to say "SURPRISE!" to her friends at school as soon as she got there.
as soon as we walked in the door, she wanted to pass out her goodies, and did, only to have them taken up quickly so the kids didn't get into them too early. it really was sweet to watch her be so proud of her creation.
she came home with a backpack full of handmade cards and goodies, which will be carefully and slowly handed out in the next few weeks.
p.s. don't you just love how little kids say "happy balentimes!" it makes me miss teaching elementary school.
