Valentine-Making Birthday Party
Over the weekend Mabel's grandparents came over for our annual traditional Valentine-making party (we've done collage valentines in my family from time immemorial, as I've described before here and here). One cool thing is that this year's party also coincided with my dad's birthday, and so it was a Grandpa birthday party as well. Below is a random sampling of a few of the many valentines Mabel, Bill, Grandma, Grandpa, and I made. And at the very bottom of this post you will find a photo of the astonishingly red valentine heart birthday cake my mom managed to conjure based on a fantastical vision cooked up by certain other small and large members of the family.
