Happy Valentine's Day

Williamsburg, 2016

So I went to the drug store prepared to buy the kind of old school pre-made Valentine's I remember getting at school, but they were all terrible.

I just couldn't bring myself to get the Star Wars cards-with-fake-tattoo kit or glittery Frozen-branded ephemera when the boys are so little and have no idea who Darth Vader is anyway. Axel calls "Olaf" Elmo. He loves his screen time, don't get me wrong, I'm just not into lining Disney's pockets more than I must.

Anyway, so with the best of intentions, I thought a freezing day would be a good excuse for some very simple crafts at home.

Sounds cute, but Ozzy sensed there were hidden treats involved (I am bringing the mini M&M packets separately for Axel's school party) and just careened around saying "Trick or Treat!" while Axel stamped about five hearts with a crab stamp and got bored.

In the interest of full disclosure these were mainly made by our nanny. But you know, "love"! It takes a village, etc.
