Reesa was so proud of her frosting job, she only wanted to lick it off, and would no longer eat a cookie!
Ta-Da, we did it!
We had a wonderful Valentines Day. Jake got up early and made us all waffles before he left for work.Jake sent me a box of tulips. Since I didn't hear Fed Ex come, they sat on my porch most of the day. Have you seen that commercial about the girl who gets a flowers delivered in a box for V-day? We laughed so hard at that, Jake was dying when he realized he ordered flowers from a box. Tulips were a nice surprise, I've never had them before, and they were beautiful even from a box!
They looked great a few days later... (this picture doesn't do it justice) until Jansen climbed onto the table and pulled off all the petals trying to smell them.
Since Jake was gone to work, I had all day to think of something to do for him. Hannah gave me the great idea to make chocolate covered strawberries. (Don't wait til the last minute... $6 at Wal-mart! for 14 strawberries, and I got the VERY last carton). But they were SO GOOD!
So we went to Wal-mart and wasted time til Jake got home, finding supplies to make valentines etc... well Jake decided to surprise us and come home 2 hours early. Since my phone didn't get service in the store we stayed a LONG time. (I love Wal-mart.) I told Jake he shouldn't try to surprise me anymore, I hate surpises anyway. BUT don't feel too bad. Jake cleaned the disaster house, did ALL the dishes, swept the kitchen floor, took out the trash and exhausted himself so when we got home, all he wanted was to sit on the couch and watch TV! I was so happy to have a clean house again!
Since I loved the strawberries so much, I went and bought more a few days later, and found THIS! Reesa and Jansen ate the WHOLE carton and left green stems everywhere. When I asked Reesa, "who did this?," she said "I am, I am cleaning this big mess!" I love that girl!
AND finally, my shamrocks started to bloom!!! After 2 months of being in a box from packing, spilling over the kitchen sink 4 times til Jake told me I had to get rid of them, I replanted them and placed them on a shelf in the kitchen (away from the sink) and 1 week later, they look THIS good. Are these the cutest plants ever??? I don't know why they make me so happy. I think they will always be my favorite plant!
