My daughter came home with a bunch of Tootsie Pops, a giant Butterfinger Bar (her favorite), a cake pop, and a chunky charm bracelet.
My daughter really likes the bracelet and now wants to make some like it.
And here's what they got from Mom & Dad...
Some of you may know that the Chinese New Year was celebrated on February 10th. Well, I thought it would be fun to get the kids necklaces for Christmas showing their animals in Chinese characters. They always ask what their animal is, because they always forget.
Mei, owner of Etchy Things on Etsy, makes incredible bamboo pendants that I saw and knew they would be perfect! She custom made all four pendants for me with their animals and the year each child was born and did an excellent job! She shipped them out to me in time for Christmas, but crazy me...I hid them so that the kids wouldn't find them, and then I forgot where I put them (has that happened to you before?).
|This is the front side of the necklaces.|
So instead of giving them as gifts for Christmas, we gave them as gifts for the Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day combined (Does that save me for forgetting them at Christmas time?).
It was a great week, a very busy week, but a great one! And all the kids at school loved my kids' valentines too. =0)
Do you have a memorable Valentine's gift from when you were little?
Don't forget that today is the last day to link up with Meet & Greet.
