Still Waiting

"I put out Cookies for the Mail Carrier, Momma."

Why Henry, that was very sweet of you.

"And I added some flowers to make the box prettier."

I'm sure the Mail Carrier will be delighted to deliver Valentines to such a pretty box.

"And a stop sign so now they really HAVE to stop!"

The boys took a hint from the local…

… and decided to set up their own...

… stop sign (and bowl of Cookies!) so the Mail Carrier wouldn't accidentally miss their Mail Box on Valentine's Day.

Fun With Props

You know, making my own STOP sign wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.


There is an on-line Octagon Layout Calculator where you can enter one of three different dimensions and it calculates the other two. Perfect for making a STOP sign out of a piece of red foam.

The STOP was created in PowerPoint by picking a close-enough font, making the STOP fill the page, and setting the font outline to black and the fill to nothing. A little cutting and double-stick taping and ta-da. (Almost) Instant stop sign.

I must say, as far as homemade props go, I was pretty pleased with how this one came out. :)

Good idea to add the stop sign to remind everyone to stop and have a cookie and give a valentine. But, I'm sure you would have received lots of valentines without it too!
