Papaw

Today I lost my Papaw. He was 84 years old, and it was very unexpected. He and I had a special relationship, and my heart is breaking right now. Below is a photo of him and my grandmother who were married for nearly 66 years. Underneath that is a photo of me with them on my wedding day. I will miss him like crazy, but he went peacefully, and for that I will be forever grateful.

I love you, Papaw. I promise not to take any wooden nickels.

Maggie {21 months}

My little Maggie is so grown up, she is so much fun and so much work right now.

She is curious, silly, and sweet, and constantly on the go. I hate the term terrible two’s, because this age is really not terrible, just a little challenging at times. I still have some tricks up my sleeve from when Amelia was this age, so I feel better prepared this time around. 

Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, Maggie and Amelia are wearing matching dresses today. 

Sweet Breakfast

This morning we had an early Valentine’s Day celebration since my girl’s half-sister was staying with us for the weekend. A few little gifts and a whole lotta sugar for breakfast. Hope you all have a sweet Sunday, too.

That last photo of Amelia is so funny. She is high on sugar!

Cupid & Hearts

I have always enjoyed Valentine’s Day. Fancy dinner dates with the mister, heart shaped pancakes for the kids. I don’t care if it’s a “Hallmark holiday”, any day that celebrates love is just fine in my book. 

I ordered this sweet dress from Old Navy for each of my girls to wear on Valentine’s Day. It was a steal marked down to $15 with an additional 30% off!

I ordered these tights for Amelia to wear with it, Maggie already has red tights to wear.

I have also started looking at Valentine cards for Amelia’s class party. Here are a few of my favorites.

All cards are from Minted.
