Happy Valentine's Day!!!

To Mike, You are my other half. I couldn't do any of this on my own. I would have never gone back to school, I would have thrown in the towel on parenting, but you encourage and strengthen me and I am grateful for that. I love you. Callee, You are a handful. You are sweet and vicious and loving and mean. Do you see the pattern here. You are Callee and you are our daughter. I love you and pray you grow to be a strong Christian woman who loves the Lord as much as you love your family. Happy Valentine's Day, I love you.

Taylor, You are a sweet child who has the attitude of a teenager from time to time. Keep growing the way you have and I know you will be a wonderful person. Happy Valentine's day sweetie, I love you!

This is a picture of "A." He has become Taylor's little crush. He is the son of the woman that cuts my hair and he is 14. She came to cut our hair last night and he came along. Taylor loved him. The funny thing is, when he was a little older than Taylor I was about 16 or 17 and used to go to his house to have my hair cut and he used to tell his mom he was going to marry me. Now Taylor has a crush, too sweet! He is such a sweet person, he went along with it, babysat her baby doll while she got her hair cut and he helped her do her Valentine's Day cards for school today. When she was done getting her hair cut she went and looked in the mirror and came out. Julie asked if she liked her hair and she said she had to ask "A" if he liked it first. When he left I said, "You liked A didn't you?" She said, "Yeah I liked him. I loved him too." I think it's safe to say when DJ comes back from deployment he may have lost a girlfriend! LOL.
The dog love A too. She is in heaven.


These are Taylor's Valentine's cards for school today.




To all my readers, Happy Valentine's Day! I stole this off Kristi's blog and wanted to share it with you. I do love all your blogs or else I wouldn't read them. I've slacked a little lately and I apologize, but when you're sick that happens. I hope your days are filled with more love than usual and you enjoy the day and all your Valentine's.




Just as an added bonus, here is a clip of Julie squirting Callee in the face with a water bottle. She loved it and they did this for about 10 minutes before I thought to catch it on video. Sorry it's a little dark, but it was from my digital camera. By the way, Callee's shirt says, "Just be glad I'm not a twin," and trust me, I am.




This was mine and Mike's first dance song:
