Happy Valentine's Day!!

Okay, so I'm a day early, but Monday evenings aren't exactly conducive for blogging or anything else for that matter.  I usually just come home and crash!  So I'm getting a head start by wishing everyone a lovely day tonight

I took some photos of Isabel earlier. I know that's hard to believe, but its true! She brought home some art completed at school and I thought it was so cute! Penguins!! What do you think! I love some of the ideas they come up with.  The penguin on the left is primarily two rolls of black paper, one on top of the other!

And of course, while the camera was out, we had to take more photos for Mommy cause she's in Afghanistan right now! Happy Valentine's Day Mommy!!  We love you!  Isabel
Notice she's wearing her apron that she designed and stitched mostly herself!   But she took it off later cause she didn't want to get food on it!  Go figure!!

Here we are - being just a little bit silly!!  That's because Isabel couldn't stop giving me very "cheesy" smiles, so I told her to act silly instead!  That's a LOT more fun, don't you think??!!  At least she looks like she's having a lot more fun!!

Surely you didn't think I'd forgotten the Valentine's Day Tree, did you?  Of course not!  Actually, this is one I had up for Christmas, but then turned into a Valentine's Day tree when I was putting all the others away.  I've had these hearts for years, but never had a tree for them.  So 2011 is the year of trees!  Yes, Easter is next and yes, I do have an Easter tree, and it's BIG too! 

This was actually a Christmas decoration I found several years ago at an after Christmas sale. I fell in love with her, as I do most lovely things, and I decided she'd make a lovely Valentine's Day Angel.

I found her sister the next year, at yet another after Christmas sale.  Wasn't that sweet of her to show up just for me?  She was the only one left, so it was meant to be!!

Believe it or not, I've actually asked Nigel NOT to get me any Valentine chocolates this year!  Come to think of it, I probably tell him that every year, right after Christmas when I have way too much in the house.  Then by the time Valentine's Day gets here, it's usually gone.  Oink! Oink!  But this year I really do NOT want any.  I'm getting HUGE.  Besides, I still have some left over from Christmas that I put in the freezer !!  I'm the absolute worst Chocoholic I know!

I hope everyone has a lovely day tomorrow!  Happy Valentine's Day and May God Bless, Jan
