The annual Valentine-making party. There was a greater stock of stickers than usual, with Mabel Watson Payne in mind. This was her first exposure to active Valentine-making, but she is of course fated to be indoctrinated in the family Valentine-making tradition long before she has any chance to question it. Overall, the duck stickers were her clear favorites this year, followed by the penguins, and then the dogs. She liked the big orange dots better than the big gold starbursts.
