A Tale of Two Valentines

Sometimes the opportunity to compare the differences between Clare and Danny is irresistible. The valentines they chose to make is one such example. Succumbing to her love of arts and crafts, Clare opted to make her own with some great supplies we found in the Target dollar spot. She had scalloped paper printed with different variations on the theme of hearts, pink and red. She added to this lots of love phrases, and she painstakingly used stencils to write "Love, Clare" on each and every one with a fancy silver pen.

For his part, Danny was very excited to go to Target to select his valentines. There was quite a selection to choose from, too: Toy Story, Cars, Spider Man, Transformers... But once he locked eyes on G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, featuring a bad-ass, black-clad ninja on the cover, there was no going back. Because really, nothing says "love" like a man in a black hood. And I have to say, the opportunity for him to give his dad a valentine that said, "You're a true ninja" really was priceless (at least for them).

Yes, they are very different, but at the end of the day both exceptionally sweet.
