My little sweetheart~


We ususally don't do much for Valentine's Day... Kevin and I think it's over rated and commercialized. Plus our anniversary is next week.
But it IS fun to decorate for the holiday!

He did get me flowers though, pretty huh! (they were prettier when I first got them but I forgot to takea pic!)
He and Nova made me a card with some $ inside so I can buy more plate hangers for my bathroom, yea!! I can't wait to finish it.

I really enjoyed getting the Valentines together for Nova's preschool class. I printed out some vintage cowboy greetings and glittered them up, then Nova signed the backs in red crayon. I attached them to little heart covered bags filled with candy.

There's glitter on the eyes, scarf, jeans, and dust cloud too~ but it doesn't show~
Then I couldn't find my Victorian scroll scissors to edge them. Oh well!




Ok, but now for the good part.

Last night I had one of the most memorable moments of my life!

We had just finished dinner and I took Nova into the bathroom for the normal routine; go potty, blow nose, wash face and hands. As I'm washing his face, he looked up at me and said, "I like you mom".

Gaaahhh! I get teary eyed just thinking about it! Sure, he says "I love you" when promted, or after we say it to him when we kiss him good night. But for him to just come out and say it....he melted my heart.

Nikki, the flowers are beautiful. Jim and I agree with you and Kevin, Valentine's Day is too commercialized.

Love Nova's cowboy valentines. Enjoy those mommy moments. That was so sweet.

Hey the cookies were for son-in-law. :o)

How lovely that you heard those words from your sweet Nova. I love the cards you made and will have to think about that for next year. And, oh my goodness, how much does he look like Kevin in that hat? And what pretty flowers Kevin gave you. *Sigh* Men like that don't grow on trees. Thanks for sharing with us. xxoo

You know they love us, but to hear it that way is always a moment :)

Oh and dead mouse??? LOLOL

hugs,

Oh and I swear I posted about our wedding on my love story and I was wearing the dress.... hmmm... ;)

Your flowers are beautiful, and I just can't get over how handsome Nova is. Have I ever told you how cool I think his name is? How did you come up with it?
"I like you mom". Wow, those really are powerful words when you think about it. It's like our kids HAVE to love us, but do they have to like us? Nope.

Justine :o )

My 1920's finger waved hair turned out pretty well for our Valentine's dinner. I will post about it next week. Thanks again.

Hey Nikki!
The flowers are beautiful...
those cowboy cards are adorable too...you make everything so special for Nova. I can imagine your heart did melt when he told you that he liked you! He's soooo cute and sweet.
Oh girl...about that computer screen....I think I would have almost had a nervous breakdown too, if my computer screen went sideways.....pure scary! I'm so glad you could quickly figure out what the problem was...and that it was easily fixed! What in the world would we do without our Nikki in blogland!?
Have a beautiful weekend!
big hug,
Queenie~

Hello Nikki, I hope your computer issues are done and gone. I always think virus when mine does something crazy like that. Hope it isn't!

Your flowers are beautiful and your little Nova is adorable :)
