Love Is in the Air

On Valentine's Day, Jane Martin answered a knock on her door. She looked to the west and to the south, but no one was there. She looked down and saw an old vase of long stemmed roses with an unmarked red envelope attached to it with a ribbon. Who could it be from? With young hands, she began to read: 

My Darling,

I have cheerfully loved you for over 6 years. I dream of your big eyes, your little nose, your blue hair, and your round foot. Your amazing beauty makes my heart jump a beat and my home go wild. Your youthful ways make me feel 12

again. I fantasize of painting the town yellow with you. If I could, I would take you away to Hawaii and treat you to a gourmet dinner of coleslaw and chicken. Then later I'd take you to the movie theater to see Gone with the Wind, and then since it would be late, I'd take you back to yoyr condo and give you a sloppy kiss on your first lips. So what do you say? Would you like to turn my fantasy into reality? If so, send me a sign. Tie the ribbon to your house within the next 11 hours and then, and only then will I reveal my secret wealth. 

Sincerely,

Your important admirer

Hello Families-

Spring is approaching and I believe we will be much happier to see better weather here soon. I wanted to share with you our first Mad Lib story. Which is featured on the front of our newsletter this month. We did a mad lib activity & thought it would be a great idea to show family what we have been up too. We probably should have read the story first to have better nouns, verbs, and adjectives but I think this is what made the story fun not knowing how it would turn out. We will feature the next half of our story in April's newsletter to find out Jane Martin's secret admirer.

Now lets take a look inside the newsletter to see what's going on this month.

 

We will have two theme days this month Casino Day held on March 8th and St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated on March 17th. Come join us for some fun while you get to spend time with your loved on and get to know you Bickford Staff.
