Cinderelly Cinderelly

I am feeling a little blue, I will spare you the details but I just feel down. We are a equal opportunity household therefore Deacon likes any and all Disney movies including Cinderella. I laid down with him for a bit to watch it today. He particularly loves when the little mice make the dress for Cinderelly, I personally like her cheery disposition.

The opening scene if you remember shows Cinderella getting ready for the day singing, I got real tears when she sings "no matter how your heart is grieving if you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true" ladies and gentleman real tears during Cinderella.

It reminded me of one of my favorite NieNie posts.

Then I remembered I am blessed, loved and that I do have faith in my dreams (and in lots of others things, this also makes me happy). So as Cinderella said "have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through, no matter how your heart is grieving if you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true." That sounds good to me.

Sugar pie Honey Bunch

You know I love you! I can't help myself, no really I can't help myself. Holidays and special occasions really bring out the spaz in me. And you know what? I like it! Valentines day was no exception, what a great holiday. Cute decorations, love in the air and telling people you love how you feel about them. Deacon starting off the day with his buddy Thomas drinking pink drinks out of valentine straws.
Is this soup the number one most darling thing EVER?? I know I know I am nuts, those noodles are handmade and delicious. And I cut those carrots out with a teensy tiny cookie cutter. Deacon thought it was the coolest dinner. Curt thought I had lost my mind.

Love is having a husband who accepts a two pack of beef jerky from costco for his valentine. And actually does not just accept it, loves it. I love that Curtis is not materialistic at all.
My favorite thing I did yesterday was make up this little Valentine garland with pictures of my family, I love all these pictures and it was fun to dig them up. I am keeping this up the rest of the month. It just makes me feel so lovey. And so what if I hung crepe paper for just my little family, its the little things people! And I already admit, I am a spaz!
This little valentine boy is what love is.

Happy to be in this family, happy to be in love, happy to celebrate valentines with my little family.

We got Deacon a little read along toy story book for Valentines day. He loved it. While flipping through the pages with him we asked him if the guy pictured below is Al from Al's toy barn, he responded:

No, that's Grandpa Steve! Ah ha ha ha!

What is it about a fireplace? I love everything about it, the fire in it the mantle around it and the warm cozy feeling coming from it. The fireplace is on my favorite things about this little bungalow we call home.

Lately when we have been out and about Deacon will get nervous that I will not be able to find our way home. When we pull up to our house he always praises me "Yay! You found our house!" That boy sure has a way of making me feel good about myself.

Like when I am having a down day and we decide to make a fire in our beloved fireplace and he sits next to me and says "you wanna hold my hand? you are my sweetheart" I have decided the best thing about being a mother is being that person for someone. The person who finds our house when you think you are lost forever, the person that makes you a cozy fireplace when you feel down or tells you that you are their sweetheart.

And the even better part of being a mom is that sometimes Deacon does all those things for me.

cold weather gives me the gimmies

Does this happen to anyone else?

I am so cold I need to go somewhere warm, like a cozy movie theater.
I am so cold I can not possibly cook dinner, I better get some cafe rio tortilla soup.
I am so cold, if I put up Valentines decor I will feel cheery and cozy.
I need to buy some more decor to really feel valentiney. (and warm)
I bet if I had another rug on my hardwood floors I would not be so cold.
I need to go to Old navy and look for a new bikini top for my trip to Hawaii on which I will not be cold.
I wish I had thicker cozier socks to make my feet warmer.
Ooooh a freshly baked treat would warm me up, but I probably should just buy it from Great Harvest, too cold too bake.
It is so freakin cold.
Why do I feel the need to spend money when it is cold. I gotta look into this.
I wonder if it is warm in Hobby Lobby or Roberts crafts?
Cleaning my house will probably warm me up, HA!
Everyone: it is way too cold today.
