If you are a mom like me, you are still trying to figure out Valentine's for all your kids. If you are like my friend Amy you have them all printed out and they will be the cutest Valentine's in the class. I have no desire to be like Amy in this area. If Amy lived here I would pay her to do this for me. Actually I'd have her come over, give her free wine and she could do all my kids Valentine's while we watched Survivor. Then I could still have cute Valentine's and everyone would think I was super crafty mom, but it would be an act! Amy would be behind it all.

Here's what she's sending to school from her son. Seriously so cute.

Yes I'm jealous. I mean it's one thing to pin this on pintrest and act like you are going to do it one day, and it's another thing to actually do it. Yes she does it. Every year. Me, not so much.


But if you are in my boat, no fear I have a solution for you. I did this last year and was so happy to see that the Fox family is once again offering Valentine's to raise money for their adoption. This is a win for everyone. They win with raising money and I win with not giving any money to “the man” and still don't have to be crafty.

This year the Fox family is actually in Columbia right now with their baby girl!  They have been there for 3 weeks and could be there as much as 8 weeks total.  Oh good gracious send a prayer up for them now.  I encourage you to go and check out their blog.  Great story, great pictures, and some super cute Valentine's!

I'll be printing these out again this year probably on Monday at midnight and then will rush the kids over breakfast on Tuesday to get them done. That's just how I roll.  I'm already taking deep breaths for the stress that will incur.



You can thank me on Monday night while you print these out and frantically scribble your kids name on there to make it look like they truly wrote it.
