This year Valentines Day was little different than we expected. Besides celebrating my birthday on the 12th, Dax and I have major colds and we aren’t sleeping much. With all this going on, McKay and I decided to pass on celebrating this year, and focus on getting well again. We took Dax to his pediatrician and got good news that he does not have RSV, which was a relief because it is going around Laramie big time right now. Apparently our little guy has a severe head cold, but he should start getting better soon.

I couldn’t handle the fact that it was Valentines Day and we weren’t going to do anything to celebrate. To change that, when Daxton went down for a nap I grabbed a bunch red, white and pink pieces of paper and cut out hearts and hurried to stick them up around the house before McKay got home (lame I know but it filled the void). Then, I got our homemade dinner ready. I made McKay’s favorite; Tri tip roast, mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. Yummy! I also made some heart shaped sugar cookies for us to decorate and eat when Dax went down for the night. I am sure McKay was thrilled to decorate cookies but he’s a trooper.

I am in love with not only my husband but also with my life. I am so grateful for all the love that is in our home right now. Happy Valentines Day everyone!

A card from GoGo and Grandpa

"Mom and Dad look at this Valentines Card I got!" This face is pricless!

He is still so happy for being so sick.

He loved looking at the lame hearts that I cut out.

We say this around our house quit often so it seemed perfect when I saw it. Obviously I had to get it.
Yes, there is a small place in my heart for you too D.C.

Fun fact about V-Day.
About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets. ( I totally did NOT make a sugar shaped like bone for Sammy. You cant prove it!)
