I've always wondered how it became customary to give out cards on a day meant to commemorate a saint named Valentine. Turns out the mass production of greetings cards had something to do with it.Go figure.Speaking of cards and mass production, I want to make cards for Kellan's classmates instead of buying them. Not that I have tons of time to spare, but it doesn't have to be anything complicated. I think it would be fun to make origami hearts. Kellan wouldn't necessarily be able to make them with me, but he can still decorate each heart. Besides, he would love seeing the hearts take shape. Boy, I hope I'm not signing myself up for a late night fold-a-thon the day before his class party!
