Valentine's Day

Monday, February 15, 2010

I don't remember a Valentine's Day quite like this one! Yesterday morning, I woke up a bit earlier to shower and shave. I was really excited to take the time to myself to shave, as well, it's not a task I take on often in the winter. I had a new blade, shaving cream and time. Apparently what I didn't have was enough hot water. After 10 minutes my shower turned cold! Gah, then when I reached for my towel I realized Tony had used it the night before because it'd vanished.

I was determined to shake my mood though and it only took a second when I saw Isaac snuggled into Tony's arms in bed. They were just too sweet together.

We went to church with my brother, chatted with some newish friends and then went home for lunch. I was able to cardio dishwash while preparing Tony and Isaac some lunch, as he watched Isaac, before I whisked out the door for the cut-a-thon for Sarah. It was such a huge success you guys! They were completely full. It was just so moving to see the salon filled with friends and family. Not to mention how cool it was for all of the stylists to give up their talent and time on Valentine's Day.

When I came home, this is what I saw:

But in Isaac's hands Tony had nestled this gem:

Are you kidding me?:

Instant tears. And I swear to you he doesn't read my blog. It was perfect. Gosh, I'm such a sucker. I mean really, a handmade Valentine from my baby boy, Tony really couldn't have done any better!

I dressed him for the occassion:

And when he got up there was a lot of these:

Still sporting his bruise. Woot haircut! Hadn't been done since Nadia's wedding:

Oh my goodness, Leah! That is so sweet! It is perfect! Haha! I just thought about how emotional us women are and how wonderful it can be to be so emotional sometimes, especially when hubbies do things like make a Valentine! Overload!

Ed got Audrey and me our own heart-shaped doughnut for v-day. Short on money, long on good intentions? Audrey sure was pleased and I couldn't help but think it awfully sweet of him to think of us while he was picking out doughnuts. Haha!
