Easter Bunny
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

VALENTINE

CupidCelebrate Valentine!! 😉

 “If you were a dictionary from the shelf
And I were looking through
I’d find the longest word of all
To spend more time with you “(Nicola and Jeanan)

If you were my present on Christmas Eve,
And I were the big red bow,
I would tie you up so tightly,
And never let you go.
