Whew! Valentine's Day seriously snuck up on me this year. After six games the weekend before, there simply wasn't much time for preparation. Thank goodness I had pre-ordered these cute tags from Etsy. By 10:00 the night before, I had successfully assembled 22 for Jackson's class, 20 for Lila's class, and 8 for Cameron's class. Plus four teacher gifts.
|I may not have had any gifts for my own family, but at least all of the classmates were covered!|
|Madison found a cute heart-shaped bun on you tube, so she and Boom came over before school for me to make that happen. Thank goodness they did, because that meant our kids got to wake up to Valentine bears and chocolates!|
|Mrs. Ward loved her "You're so Magical" cookies.|
|She also loved getting to see Lila for a few minutes--sweet girl was up half the night coughing, so I let her sleep in.|
|A few hours later, she was all smiles at her school Friendship Party.|
|This girl always has the biggest smile and hug for me whenever I come into her classroom. |
Makes me feel so good!
|Happy Valentine's Day from the Murphy Magic...|
|and from Ms. Garner's whole class!|
|We think Ms. Garner is a GEM!|
|After spending time with the calm 1st graders, I zipped down the hallway to the rowdy 4th grade. These boys were hyped up!|
|There were so many really cool Valentine boxes this year--looks like we are going to have to step up our game for 5th grade and not just recycle the same box again! It's served it's purpose since 2nd grade, though:)|
|The kids enjoyed all of their games...|
|After we left school, the Valentine's Bus made it's first stop at Gigi & Boom's house. |
We delivered love to them and then moved on!
|Next stop--Memaw's house, where we delivered more love and picked up our littlest love bug.|
|Our final stop was at Meme's house. The kids loved giving her pretty flowers and I loved seeing how happy it made her. We couldn't stay too long because we had to get to Lila's soccer game across town.|
