valentine's day is only 27 days away!!!

The only thing is- we have 3 birthdays to get through before Feb 14. Dave's b-day is on the 26th, our 6 year old will turn 7 on the 31st....and Sadie was born a year ago this month. (we can't remember the exact day). I really should be decorating for those events first...but a few hearts and red/white decor never hurt anyone.



Good news- my mom brought me a sewing machine when they came at Christmas. I guess she had an extra one laying around. Anyway- it is wonderful! I am so happy with it. It sews like a pro right through fabric and the heat n' bond!!!!! This little shirt is the first of many, I hope. The boys are getting rocket shirts next.

Gorgeous weather today! Yay! I am ready for spring...................

Who else is ready for Spring? How about V-day?

Spring? Did you say spring? I can't hear you...I have snowballs in my ears! Thanks for the glimpses of grass!

I am so ready for spring. I was ready for spring in November. Guam weather suited me fine!

Jennifer said...

I haven't even planned for v-day yet!! I see Pastor is watching the kids again, so maybe that will be my plan!!

Wow, I can't believe our boys will be 7. They are growing so fast. It's hard to think of Joshua as 9 in a week!

SPRING= Flower Beds... YES!

I have a rough draft of my sons school party. Need to get it approved by the teacher and then send letters home on Friday.

Valentine's Day is my very favorite holiday of all.. My "big" kids still laugh about Mr. Cupid coming to bring presents and love dust.. Brent was in the 5th grade before he figured out that I was Mr. Cupid.. haha Can't wait to start over with Brady.. So glad to see someone else decorates for it.

Wow-- my Christmas lights aren't even down yet (it's been too COLD outside) and you are already decorating for the big V-Day. Have I mentioned that you amaze me?

I'm soo-ooo ready for spring. Or maybe even summer. We could just skip all the rain and head right into warmth. :-D

My first post :-) I just had to mention your "spring" weather...I am jealous!! We had a snowstorm here in N.B. today, so it will be awhile before spring arrives in our neighbourhood. Love your home, and all the bright colors....the mantel pic is beautiful!
blessings, kathy
