All That's Missing is a Bedazzler...

Dane and Aidan both have Valentine's Day parties tomorrow at school. Dane came home with an assignment to make a box for cards, with suggestions for decorating the box "with wrapping paper, stickers, or markers". A quick trip to the WalMart later (minus V-Day wrapping paper at $4 a roll. Can anyone say rip off?), all the supplies were assembled for the box.

I put Brandon in charge of the project last week while I was at work one day, ensuring that Dane would have the most pimped out box in Ms. G's class. (Remember the boot?)

Well, the boys did not disappoint.

If Liberace had a Valentine's box, I imagine it would look something like this.

I'm not sure if Star Wars wrapping paper, word bubbles, and feathers were what Ms. G had in mind to celebrate the holiday of Love.

I think I'll get Brandon a Bedazzler for his birthday. That way next year's box can have that extra bit of tacky.
And, of course, after Dane's box was finished, Aidan insisted on one of his own:

Hope your Valentine's Day is filled with foam glitter hearts, R2D2, and multicolored feathers.

Because if it is, that's definitely a story I want to hear about.

She didn't tell you about the part where I made the talk bubble from the cute jedi-girl-in-training say, "Dane's cute," after which Dane started crying because all the boys at school were going to make fun of him! Peer pressure already - he's six! I quickly placed a heart over the bubble that you can see in pic #1 and the day was saved. My son is cute and I should be able to make the wrapping paper version of a fictionally star wars character say so if I want too!

Umm... does your husband give lessons on how to wrap presents... not even decorate the present, just wrap it...I am reminded every year at Christmas that my husband "can't wrap presents because, sweetheart, you know what it will look like if I try to wrap it" Next year I'm sending him out the door with the wrapping paper and gifts and telling him to go see Brandon.
