belated valentine wishes.

this year for valentines day, our house was
plagued with strep throat...and then the flu.

but we didn't let that stop us from making heart pancakes to be exact.
(that the poor little squirt wouldn't even eat
because his throat hurt too bad)

aside from being sick, it really worked out
in our favor because we got to have dave
home with us...i think we'll get strep throat
again next year.

so for valentines day we got naps....which
is all this girl wanted anyway, am i right?
it may not have been the sexiest valentines
day in the world...but we certainly felt the love.

dinners from family (we have the best family ever)
dinners from friends (we live in the best neighborhood ever)
being together.
dave and i washing our bedding together late at night
because bennett threw up on it....that, people, is true love.


so you're getting a valentine from this guy, a week late. happy valentines!

this girl

was blessed
on the sixth of january.
in the dress i was blessed in.
by her daddy...who
is wrapped around
her little finger.


this boy

loves preschool.
loves his baby sister...
whom he calls "mabel honey".
is into telling jokes...
especially if they include potty
words..."toot" "bum" poop",
you name it...he thinks it's hilarious.
boo for me.

he is so fun
so sweet (minus the toot jokes)
and so sharp.
