But, wait! It's not too late for a Valentine!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Grace is a bit too shy to say it herself, but she's pretty sweet on y'all.

Did you do anything special? Jason and the kids brought me breakfast in bed, which was lovely. It's always a bit nerve wracking, though--watching the kids teeter through the door holding a plate full of hot food. So that adds a shot of adrenaline to the morning! After that, we were pretty busy getting ready for church, and I have to confess that I didn't even have a card for Jason.

What? Don't look at me like that. I still use the line, "Your gifts are these three adorable children that I painfully struggled to bring into the world. You're welcome." Yeah, I'm thinking I have a few more years' worth of mileage out of that one.

Don't worry. I'll make it up to him! Cards and chocolate ain't exactly his love language, if you know what I'm sayin'. (You do know what I'm sayin', right? I was trying to be subtle. It's so tricky.)

You guys have a great day. Be sweet to each other!

Oh, and congrats to my cousin Patrick who got engaged yesterday! Some of you know Pat, and if you want to read about the very Pat-like way he proposed, go here. Mwah!


  1. Oh, that sweet little Grace! What a precious Valentine she is! Thanks for posting it.

  2. You tell me the name of the person who is saying that they have a prettier baby than that and I'll kick their...

    Well, okay, this isn't a competition, is it?

  3. That Grace is such an adorable Valentine. I could just kiss her to pieces!!!

  4. Love it! Great pics of that girl.

    And so funny about the breakfast in bed. Matt and I were JUST discussing how problematic the whole concept is.

  5. PAT'S ENGAGED!!! So awesome! Yeah you and Becky shoulda held out for a bigger bling, Pat really showed yo mans up. ;)!

    And that baby girl is too cute for words!

  6. My GOSH that is an adorable baby. Cos, you don't know that already and no one else is bothering to tell you :)

    I love your valentine's line. I may just have to borrow that next VD/BD/Xmas/St Swithen's Day!

  7. Cutest thing!

    I DO know what you're saying. Unfortunately, Jimmy and I ate so damned much that we both passed out before any such thing had a chance!

  8. Our Grace is about the cutiest, adorable darling. I totally miss her in my arms.

    And Congratulations Pat!!!! Mike and I are happy for you and the family.

  9. That picture of Grace could be a Hallmark Valentine! Did you take those pictures? Cuz they're awesome!

    I remember a breakfast in bed I made my Mom when I was still in grade school. Undercooked sausage and eggs anyone? Ever since then I've never really seen the big appeal. I mean, the thought is super sweet, but it's not too practical for me, esp. with my morning dragon breath that needs extinguished before I can eat anything. :-|
