Our Valentine

Abby Kate received special cards and gifts from us even though she didn't know what they were for. Really more for Mike's and my enjoyment I guess. She wore her denim dress that Grami gave her. It'll probably be the last time she'll get to wear it though, because she's growing SO fast!

Thank you Mike for the very sweet cards, beautiful flowers and candy! I love you!












I decided to go back to my Kindergarten days and make Mike's Valentines myself. One from me, from Abby Kate and from "The Kid" (Junah). I covered AK's right hand in white paint for the inside of the card. It's taken me two days to get it completely out of her fingernails!

And this is the face that Daddy taught Abby Kate to make at boys...

We stopped by Sommer's house to give Griffin a Valentine. Griffin is growing fast, too! He's now almost 7 months old. Can you believe how tall he's gotten?! He is so cute. We can't wait until they'll actually be able to play together.

Hi Casey - just stopping through Lori's blog to yours! Congrats on the dancing lessons - how fun! I also went to your design blog - I love your stuff! I want to paint some canvas prints with acrylic paints for my kids' rooms - like 14 x 16 size or similar. What kind of brushes are the best for these types of projects??? I am new to this :) Have a great week!

AK looks precious in her Valentine's Day gear. Mike will keep that card with AK's hand print forever!!! How special.

Casey, I love your cards too. You have quite a God-given talent for that stuff. We are such bad parents: I got a card for Matthew and one from Philip to Matthew. Matthew bought me a card and one from Philip to me. We both forgot to get Philip a card! Although I made it up to him by letting him enjoy some of the Dove chocolates Matthew got for me!

Ok your Valentine's look a little too good! Sure you didn't have any help? Kidding! And tongue or no tongue, that face isn't going to keep the boys away- sorry Mike!
