Daddy-Daughter Dance

Molly and Papa attended the Primary School's annual Daddy-Daughter Dance this past Friday! She said it was "The best night ever!" 

She wore the pretty dress I bought her while at the Dickens Fair two Autumns back. I think we've got one more year out of the dress before we'll pack it away for future use. I just LOVE that dress. Molly says it's a bit itchy, lol, but goodness does she look gorgeous in it!

Papa was looking pretty sharp too! Love the bow tie. What a sweet pair!


I'm glad Sam was able to take a few photos of Molly with her girl friends. And unlike last year, she spent most of the time dancing! I'm so happy she had such a great time with her friends and Papa. What a wonderful memory they have created!

With love,

Be Mine

Ohhhh Valentines Day. How lucky am I to have 4 Valentines!

This year is the first year Timothy has made Valentines. Oh my word, he was sooooo adorable filling them out!! You know, he signed his own name 30 times, all by himself!! What a good boy. He is just so proud of himself that he can spell Tim. We are currently working with him to spell his whole name; Timothy. Welcome to the world of class Valentines, Timothy!

Molly is all about it. No surprise there, our little take charge and get it done little gal! She has been asking me for a month to do her Valentines, haha. She also demanded that she go first, have first pick of the Valentines (I purchased and downloaded two kinds off of Etsy.com a few weeks ago and printed them all myself), and of course, first pick of the candy. Naturally.

I do believe this is to be the last year Anthony will be doing Valentines. They grow up so quickly! I'm uncertain if they do Valentines Day parties in middle school? Even if they do, and give the kids the option to fill out Valentines, I wonder if he would want to? I guess we'll see. Sweet Anthony, he signed up to be a part of the Valentines Day Party committee, so we purchased a few snack items, some drinks, and I also downloaded and printed out Valentines Day Bingo for his class to play.


Shhhh, we're making Papa some Valentines! We might have even gotten him a small treat too!

We bought the kids each a small box of chocolates and a new swimsuit for Valentines Day this year. We'll set those out Monday night so they wake up to them Tuesday morning. Yay. Sam has strict orders not to purchase any candy for me for Valentines Day. I totally have no self control and the last thing I need is a huge box of chocolates going to my thighs, haha.

This year we've decided to do a Valentines Day dinner at Grandma Cathy's. I'm not sure what dinner will be yet, but I did pick up some fresh strawberries and melt-able chocolate wafers so we can all make chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. That'll be fun and tasty!! 

Happy Valentines Day!

With love,

Cherry on Top


Oh Timothy. 

You are seriously the sweetest. However did I get so lucky to be able to call you mine? You are like the cherry and sprinkles on top, with Molly being the whipped cream, and Anthony being the ice cream. I guess that would make Papa the chocolate dipped cone. Ahh yes, life sure is sweet! 

Two weeks ago, while I was driving Timothy into Preschool, we had this conversation: 

"Mama, am I a genius?" 
"Uh, yeah! Of course you are Honey Bunny." 
He nodded a very satisfied nod. "Thanks." 

HAHAHA, what was that about!? 

A week ago we were having some flurries. We are so completely over the snow here. 
I looked out the window and annoyingly exclaimed:

"UGH!!!! It's snowing!!!! WHY!!!?" 
"Well, you don't need to throw a fuss about it!" 

LOL, wise words he's picked up from his awesome teacher? 

Today, while we were playing Micro Chargers in his room, he was signing a song he likes: 

"I know I'm not the only one! Ohhhh, I know I'm not the only one!"........."Mama?"
"You're my only one!"

Oh my God. Heaven help this Mama's beating heart. 

He's the cherry and sprinkles on top, I tell you. 

With love,
