For their Valentine's parties at school this year, Griffin and Kai each picked out which cards they wanted to hand out.
Griffin's was fairly predictable...... TRANSFORMERS.
(Didn't you know? Battlebots are the new Cupids! They're so romantic.)
Kai went the route I was hoping he would....choosing anything BUT Transformers.
There were quite a few new boxed Valentines that I'd never seen before.
Ones that came with silly bands, 3-D pictures, 'I Spy' types, tatoos, etc.
But Kai picked out these 5x7 sized Valentines that were printed with a design on front and then instructions on the back for how to fold this paper into an airplane.
Pretty cool, right?
The paper was a little too stiff for that many folds and ended up ripping in some parts but I thought it was a super cute idea.
Valentine's morning, was donuts for breakfast and treat buckets.
Each of the boys received a new shirt featuring their all-time-favorite-Autobot: Bumblebee
(My boys are so good at the fake, painful-looking smiles. Makes a mom proud!)
Both Griffin and Kai were excited to get to school.
Griffin even gave a Valentine to the crosswalk guard that helps him each day.
She loved it.
Fast forward to after school.
That's when it happened.
A bomb exploded.
There were Valentine's guts EVERYWHERE!
Poor Peter Parker..... I mean, Spiderman.... barely made it out alive!
I'm handing out my "Most Clever" award to this cute soccer field card.
It was a great day, guts and all, with lots of smiles and additional gifts and treats from both sets of grandparents.
I want to give another big THANK YOU to my grandma for her delicious Valentine's sugar cookies that brought back so many memories.
For most of my childhood, my mom's mom lived in Utah and would send us cookies in the mail (IN THE MAIL!!) for Christmas, Valentines, and a few other holidays too.
Those delivery days were always so exciting.
