Hailie had a field trip today to the desert botanical gardens.. I packed her a sack lunch to bring and out of the corner of my eye I see Luke grab it and write a message to her on it..  my heart melted when I saw what he wrote..

then I here him say.."ha ha hailie now everyone will see what I wrote and you will be embarrassed.. I am getting you back for all the times you embarrass me..
boys.. geez.. just when you think they have that soft side.. sigh..

postcard with love..

my sister sent me the cutest valentine this year.. I had told her about the finger painting idea I saw for babies.. You put paint on some paper and then put it in a freezer ziplock bag so that the baby can fingerpaint and squish it all around, but no mess to cleanup!
She had baby B do it (hard to believe my nephew is 10 months already) isnt he adorable!

His first finger painting was of course a masterpiece and she sent it out for valentines day..
I had to frame it..just used an old frame with no glass in it that I had laying around..

 a little black and bronze paint and some hot glue to affix it to the frame..
 and now his love day heart greets us by the front door :) makes me happy..
