Oh rats. This post just made me remember something. I was going to get my second grade (or therebouts) valentine cards scanned and put on a post. I forgot to do it. Oh well. Always next year. I love this though. Those cards are so cute.

Lucy: I have one from high school that I've been trying to find so I could scan it. Just haven't had the time to track it down. I wish I had some from my early school days..they were so cute.

Those are cute! I used to love having Valentine's Day when I was in elementary school. My mom would help me hand make card and pack them with candy.

I always made my own and gave it to a girl I was sweet on but got it tossed to the side when the kid with a store bought card and cupcakes swooped in!! Shucks!!!
