happiest valentine's day ever


We had the sweetest Valentine's Day, full of kisses and hugs, thanks to Baby. My parents watched him tonight while Rich and I snuck out for a bite to eat. Since we hadn't planned ahead we couldn't go anywhere terribly nice (all booked solid) so we went to La Madeleine. It really worked out perfectly. We secured a cozy table near the fire and enjoyed catching up. Although I do have to admit that Baby and all things Baby were the topics of most of the conversation.

Seth called on the cellphone to wish us Happy Valentine's Day and to let us know that he "got a thousand Valentines"!

They are all moved into their new home. I've been asked to decorate Shelby and Seth's rooms. I'm busy planning what I'll do. I think for Shelby's room I'll do something similar to the room I just did here, except with flowers and picket fences.

Seth told me today that he'd like for me to paint a deer and a squirrel and a bear on the wall...so he can shoot them. Oh dear! I'll have to dream up something a little less, uh, violent. Where's that cute little Charlie Brown boy I used to know?

We were married 12 years when we adopted our daughter. For all those years, going out, alone, together was no big deal. After, having a baby, it was so sweet when we finally went out alone for the first time.

My sweet little nephew who is almost four, has all so started talking about shooting things. It must be that hunter/provider gene kicking in!

i was a foster child for a year, me and my little sister. despite the traumatic experience of being parted from my mother, there is a part of me that also wants to foster children with my own heart now. i can't do it though. it will tear me apart...i'll have to find some other way to help children who can't help themselves just yet...

i'm not sure we all that much in common other than the foster part, but if it's ok with you, i'd like to come back and just sit with everyone else and share in this experience.

Thank you for opening up your heart and home to Baby and all the other children that will be entrusted to you. Bless you and Rick...

peace,
Lil

LOL, you can not take the boy out of a little boy (or a grown man for that matter :)

I am happy you and Rich were able to have some quiet time...
