Feeling the Love

Valentine's this year was fun, mostly because Cade and Carson got into it. They got to give Valentine cards to friends for the first time and receive them in return, decorate heart-shaped cookies, & eat lots of chocolate and cherry hearts. Life as a 4 year old is good.

Little Love Bugs!
They even got some cash in the mail from Grandpa and Grandma Tucker. Cade has never been more excited! We went to the store to spend their doe. Cade picked a boat for the bath and a small dump truck. Carson picked a pimped out Cadillac Escalade with doors that open.:) They were so proud of themselves as they handed their money to the "store guy."
Neighborhood kids all together for a par-tay!
Love from Mom and Dad
Carson opened up his box of chocolates and devoured them as quickly as possible...stuffing them all into his mouth at the same time. Cade, on the other hand, ate them amazingly slow...savoring each one. Who knew watching them eat their chocolate could be so telling of their personalities!!!
They each got a water-color book (which is so out-of-character for me). I'm happy to report that we have faithfully had some "art time" most days since. Carson counts down the seconds until he's done his mandatory page. But he does it and that is progress.
Milkshakes after dinner!

As much as I love my little boys and enjoyed celebrating the day with them, this man is my number one Valentine. If we were in elementary school, I would have picked out an extra special Valentine to give him, and said it was from his secret admirer. His gift to me was sweeter than candy. He wrote a poem, complete with his witty comments and sense of humor. His writing is one of the first things I loved about him...this gift reminded me of that. I was told to read it out loud and he would stop me as I went along. The poem was 3-fold. I was stopped three times as thoughtful, personalized gifts were given. He makes me swoon!! What a wonderful person I get to experience this life with. There is no one better suited for me, that I know for sure, and having him by my side is my greatest of blessings.
We all felt the love this February.
