Making Plans for Valentine's Day..

One of my teens will be having oral surgery over the weekend so I'm a little iffy about how our Valentine's Day will go. I offered to "celebrate" early but he didn't want to- but far be it from him to miss out on any sweets, I'm sure!

We always read about the traditional Valentine's stories, and some from other countries. 
Sonshine has a great list of Unit Studies that I often browse through to see what I can glean.
I haven't narrowed down my treat for this year, but I'm thinking it will have something to do with brownies and shh!, some hidden other things.
One year I made Jelly-Filled Thumb Print Cookies, another year I made some that were like Brandy's Shortbread Sandwich Cookies, the year they still can't go over was my Big Sweetheart Cake for them, and we always set a special table, even if it's just with frugal, construction paper place mats!

I printed out these hearts from The Graphics Fairy to make a garland and now I'm digging for coloring pages to put on our "art line". (Just a piece of yarn strung through the dining area with clothespins on it to hang the pictures from.:)


John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I wish my printer wasn't broke so I could print out too!! Ive got to get around to calling to see my printer can be fixed. I did pick up the children some of those little Russell Stovers 1.00 heart things. I think I will just make sweets and write them a card, since we can't print! :(
Hope everything went well today!

I hope you're able to get that up and running very soon. Living without a printer is like being in a canoe without a paddle, for a home school-er ;-)
