My Loves

Happy Valentine's Day to all the lovers out there. :) Today has been a wonderful day full of monkey balloons, messy candy, preschool love notes, and flowers. Nathan, who adores this holiday, popped out of bed when I whispered a sweet reminder. He was pumped to pass out his Spongebob valentines that he carefully addressed last night.

When we got to school, the kids had already finished their pink cupcakes. The teacher said each of them lay on their mats after lunch, eyes wide, while she set up for the party. Needless to say, "nap" time was cut short, and party time started early. We came home with a bag of loot and a goldfish or two for brother. Luckily, Nana was smart enough to send a box of Valentine's Nilla Wafers, so Owen was all set.

And don't think those Bauer boys forgot about mama. Valentine's Day is yet another perk to being the only girl in my noisy home. Nathan picked out the perfect pot of red tulips and my grown-up sweetie sent me a beautiful arrangement of daisies.

I love these boys so much and I feel so blessed to celebrate with Owen for the first time this year. The room in my heart grows with my family and, thanks to these guys, it stays full. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful day celebrating each other and ruining your supper with chocolate. :)
