Love & Laughter

Well, Valentine's Day is almost here...what to do, what to do? I know some of you have some GREAT things planned (especially my friend Autumn)--I'll tell you about it later. Don't want to ruin the surprise! I have been racking my brain trying to think of something creative and inexpensive to do for my precious hubby. I am open to any suggestions!
I just wanted to share some funny things that have happened around here since John has been layed off. Last Friday morning, we were all still in bed. Elijah was lying between me and John. He was flipping and flopping and wanting to get up. Since it was only 6:00 a.m., I was not about to go for that! So I reached over and gave him a couple of good spats and told him to be still. But alas! It was John's cries I heard echoing back, not Elijah's! I had reached over a little too far and smacked John! I couldn't help but laugh at the expression on his face as he came bolting upright out of bed!!
And yesterday, Elijah was supposed be taking a nap, but he was fighting it. He kept getting up and walking in the kitchen where I was cooking. I would scold him and lay him back down. On one of the trips I left the phone in the room. A few mins later, I heard it ringing. There stood Elijah in the kitchen. He handed it to me and said, "Here", then he turned around and marched back to the couch and laid back down. He has only just now started talking, so that was a wow moment for me.
The pic above is an example of my new hobby...making hairbow boards. This one is similar to mine, the only difference is that mine is a little smaller and trimmed in marabou, or faux ostrich feathers. My digital camera is broken at the moment, or I would take some pics of mine and post them myself. I can customize one to match any bedroom, etc. They seem to be really taking off, as I have four orders to fill. Beam me if you would like one!
