Happy Valentine's Day!

Today at school they painted the kids' faces for Valentine's Day. The teacher told me that she had to do Adam's 3 times before he was satisfied. I guess he is my son after all! At least Qatar seems to be okay with Valentine's Day, unlike Saudi Arabia, who has banned all things red for the holiday (click here to read the article). I saw several kiosks in the mall today with your traditional Valentine's gifts - hearts, flowers, cards, etc. About half of the items were in Arabic, and the rest in English. I almost got Shane a stuffed bear holding a heart with some Arabic writing on it, but I decided not to, since I wouldn't buy it if it was in English (so why would I want it in Arabic!).
