The kids and I had a lot of fun yesterday designing Valentine’s cards. This is what I came up with, but my oldest daughter wanted also some plain ones that just said “Happy Valentine’s Day!” and my youngest daughter wanted to use the one we found on Etsy. It has dogs on them and right now they are her favourites. There is a great selection of Valentine’s cards you can print yourself on Etsy.
If you like my design you can find it here ready to print (For personal use only).

Yesterday at the breakfast table we had the following conversation:
Me: “H., you were born in the US. You are a citizen of the United States and you are getting a new President today!”
H:”What does this mean?”
My daughter is only 8 years old and after some explaining she said:
“What can he do for me? Is he going to make puppies cheaper?”
I have no idea where this came from. I think I mentioned once how expensive some breeds are, but since we are not getting a dog it never came up again.
Can you imagine how surprised I was when I found out later, that puppies are very much on Barack Obama’s mind as well? He promised in his first speech as President-elect that he would get his daughters a puppy when they move into the White House! There you go: Kids know what is important! I wonder how much he will pay for it …
