Gestures of Love

I had every intention of posting a lot more in February because I finally feeling better, well, that kind of went downhill again. So I am for sure 100% better now and will hopefully be back up to speed on posting again. After two doctor appointments I found out with my second doctor that he thought it could be a micro-plasma bacteria which apparently can hang on for a very long time; or it could have been a strain of Bronchitis. The doctor prescribed some antibiotics and by the end of the week I was talking normal and the cough had almost subsided! Yay to feeling better!

So for February I was trying to recognize gestures of love amongst my family. I thought it was an appropriate time of the year with Valentine's Day and all. My goal was to notice it, not necessarily photograph it, but I was able to get a few images. 

Thing 2 Loves to cuddle with Daddy first thing in the morning. Sometimes it's a lot earlier than we would like, but we'll take what comes our way.

Time for a horsey ride!

When Thing 2 gets tired, sometimes I turn on a movie to finish get a few things done and then put him down for nap. They love cuddling with each other. 

These two pictures are of our Valentine's Day breakfast and dinner. We had pink heart shaped pancakes for breakfast, and Thing 1 was very excited about it.

Dinner was stuffed jumbo shells, salad, garlic bread and frozen fruit salad. It was delicious!


This was dessert, chocolate cover strawberries. White chocolate and milk chocolate. The boys devoured them. Poor Daddy came down with a bug of some sort and wasn't feeling well, do he wasn't able to enjoy our dessert. 

Grandpa came to visit for two nights. Just the nights because he was picking up some equipment here in Utah to take back to Washington and it took all day to load the trucks. Grandpa was excited to play iPad Battleship with Thing 1. Thing 1 beat Grandpa and loved explaining some of the different rules to him.

Thing 2 loved Grandpa's boots, as well as sharing Cut the Rope's Om Nom adventure's with Grandpa. The cartoons are Thing 2's favorite thing to do on the iPad. 

And of course, more cuddling with Daddy!

We hope you're Valentine's month was a full of love as ours was!
