Since I was writing a good LOVE STORY over Valentine’s Day weekend, I was not able to show you a little bit of Valentine goodness from my sweet Greyley Kate. On Friday, she had to take in a special handmade Valentine box for the goodies she would be collecting. The box would be graded, but it was mostly supposed to be good ole fun.
We had fun trying to figure out what she would make. This girl has big ideas, yep, yep, yep. Very good ideas, I might add. And some just big. No, I’m kidding. She’s got creativity swirling all up in that brain of hers. It inspires me.
We settled on a heart pillow with a pocket…in 3 coordinating fabrics. I wish I’d gotten a picture of the back~ it’s also hot pink loveliness.
We knew she wasn’t feeling too great that day. I took her temperature at breakfast and it was normal. She was determined to go. She had VALENTINES TO DELIVER!!! Sadly, we had to go pick her up right BEFORE the Valentine’s Party and BEFORE a winner could be declared. She had a fever just over 101º. After a quick doctor visit (with tears streaming down her face the whole way, Little Lamb) we realized she had tonsillitis.
When she was able to go back to school this week, she received a ribbon for “Softest Valentine Box.” She was very pleased.
Love you, Sweet Valentine Girl.
