Greg and I are not big spenders when it comes to Valentine's Day gifts. We usually buy each other and the kids some candy and a card. This year I have gotten a lot of ideas from Pinterest and although I hardly ever follow through with any projects that I pin....I did decide to put one of them to good use for my husband's Valentine's Day present. First, I had to get individual pictures of the kids holding up a sign....Here's how Colton's went......
And then there was Bailey....
....and of course, then it was Kinley's turn.....this turned in to an all out bribing session!!!!
Thank Goodness I had Valentine's Day Candy on hand!
A black frame, some construction paper and a few puffy heart stickers later we had a present for Daddy.
My husband is not a Big reactor, so you never know if he really likes something....but I'm going to assume he did. We made it for his office at work, but I am also going to assume that it will not leave our house until I put it in his car myself and call him right before he walks into his office and remind him to take it in.
This year for Colton and Bailey's 8th Birthday, I asked them if they would rather have a party or get their Rooms redone. To my Pleasan...
Words to look back on....

Bailey: I guess you have to be a Grown up and have your own kids before you really find out if Santa is real or not. Me: Well, I'm a Grown up and have my own kids and I believe that Santa is real. Bailey: Yea, He has to be real. How else would we get Presents on Christmas morning. It's not like You and Daddy could afford to buy all those gifts. Me: Yep, that's for sure :)

Colton: Mama, have you ever had a BFFN? Mom: What is a BFFN? Colton: Best Friend For Now. Mom: Why would you want a BFFN? Why not just call them your BFF? Colton: Well you never know if you're gonna get in a fight.

Bailey: Daddy sure does say a lot of bad words when he watches football.

Colton (while sitting in Greg's lap): Daddy, wouldn't it be cool if we could make money just by sitting here watching football and drinking root beer!

Colton: (storming in the house after having an argument with his twin sister) BAILEY IS SO MEAN! When I die, don't let her anywhere near my funeral! Me: Hopefully you will out live me and I won't be around for your funeral. Colton: Well, if you are alive, DON'T LET HER NEAR IT!

Colton: Mommy, why when people get married and take a trip, they call it a honeymoon? Me: I'm not sure. Bailey: I think it's because they love each other to the Moon and Back. Colton: I was thinking it was because the Moon covers the whole World and when a Man marries his wife it means he thinks the World of her....

Me: Bailey, please get off of the Counter Bailey: Ignoring Me.... Me: Bailey, I said GET OFF THE COUNTER NOW! Bailey: (jumping off and hitting her head on a drawer) SEE WHAT YOU DID!!!! (fake tears) Me: I didn't tell you to JUMP off and hit your head. Bailey: No, but I asked you to get me a cup Me: No you didn't. Bailey: Well I asked you to help me get down. Me: Again, no you didn't Bailey: WELL, I GAVE YOU A LOOK!!! Me: Speechless and Busting out Laughing... Bailey: Storms off....
Colton: Mommy, how does the toothfairy know my name? Bailey: The tooth fairy is magic and knows everything. She will even remember Mommy when she gets old and starts losing her teeth.
Bailey: Colton, Everybody has a Smart side, you just don't use yours...
Me: Bailey, quit picking your nose! Bailey: I'm not, I'm just rearranging.
I have a Great Husband and three Great, exhausting, funny, at times trying, silly, loveable kids that keep me on my toes at all times. Life is never dull around here and this blog is to prove just that.
