Both so happy in this one; I love it.
Last night we had a little family date. We went to our favorite pizza place. It's such a cute little family owned place and the ambiance is so fun. Matt seemed a little down so I asked him what was up. He usually works on Saturdays, but ended up having it off. He was sad because he said he wanted to get me something, but had forgotten he didn't have to work and didn't pick it up. He was so bummed thinking he had bombed Valentine's day. I didn't expect a thing, but he was so sweet about it, that we ran into town so he could pick up the surprise. I waited in the car with sleeping kids and watched him march in. A few minutes later he came out the door, carrying a bouquet of daisies and lilies (my favorite), and had the biggest grin on his face. My camera wouldn't focus until he got all the way to the door, but this was the look he had the whole way from the store to the car. I was so touched by his happiness to get his wife something. Just watching him walk out, swinging his arm and leg out the side like he does, with that big grin brought a few tears to my eyes. I can sometimes get overwhelmed and impatient and occasionally forget how much I really do love him. I really do love him, so, so much.
This picture just tickles me to pieces. Kaden crinkles up his nose when he smells things and I think it's hilarious. He keeps me laughing all day long.
Happy Valentine's day. Maybe the day is overrated like some people seem to think it is, but I think its so great to have an excuse to shower people with fun things, with love, chocolate, flowers, kisses, the whole bit. I am obviously a sentimental, mushy, and sappy girl, so I say celebrate love every day.
