My sweet, sweet Valentine

Sunday, February 13, 2011

8 years ago I got the sweetest Valentines gift from my then 4-year-old curly-headed Valentine.

   

This wasn't halloween, nope, this little super hero was dressed in costume every. single. day. for years.

He was in a fabulous 'Mothers Morning Out' program at a local church. 




The crafts he brought home, I will cherish forever. But, this one may be my favorite.




This sweet little heart shaped suncatcher.

 He formed a wire strung with little beads into a heart shape and then filled in
the heart with more beads. It was then allowed to fuse together in a warm oven.

 I chose instead to put mine on a necklace.


  

This will be the 9th Valentines Day that little treasure has hung around my proud neck. 




And when I do, I get to remember these wonderful, snaggle-tooth memories....

Ok, this made me cry! I remember taking Jack to Gaffney shopping one time and he wore his costume. He was so funny! Can't believe how quickly our little ones have grown up!
