That's Amore!

For Valentine's day I got a Shark steam mop! I love it! No more cleaning my wood floors on my hands and knees with a bucket of hot water. The boys got big heart lollipops and a toy, Buzz Lightyear for Gavin, Woody for Cameron, and a little tow truck for Mason. Jeremy got a box of pecan clusters. I also got some pretty red roses and a very special valentine made by Cameron from all of the boys. Last week all three boys got a card from their Grandma and Grandpa Johnson with a crisp $1 bill in each! I remember getting such cards from my grandparents and loving it as a kid and our boys (especially Cameron) were thrilled. Well, a seed was planted in Cameron's head after receiving that card and Valentine's morning Jeremy and I each got our own special card with a dollar bill inside! Now I can go buy that pack of gum I've been wanting... :)

Valentine's day this year happened to fall on the Sunday that we do our monthly dinner swap with our friends the Wadley's, Toler's and Turner's, so we made it into a fun little party for the kids. They all decorated a shoebox and exchanged valentines and then stuffed their bellies with candy. This dinner night has become something that we always look forward to, it is such a great tradition and our kids have really cemented their friendships with each other. We get some great adult time too and eat really yummy food! It was a great day filled with love and friendship! Happy Valentine's Day!


Nice job, Travis...

I think I gained five pounds last night! I just love all you guys. Thanks for yet another delicious dinner, plenty of great conversation, and a million laughs. You all are truly wonderful and I'm so glad that each of you are a part of our lives. It was a wonderful Valentine's Day.

The Shark!!! I've had my eye on one for a while. My brother has one and swears by it but I haven't taken him seriously because he loves anything that starts out as an infomercial! If you give it a glowing review then perhaps I might take the plunge and buy one finally.
