A few days worth...

of Valentine's and anniversary celebrations. We had to spread it out a little bit because of our work schedules. Things were a little hectic over our anniversary, but we managed to find a few quiet moments to ourselves and reflect back on the last five years. Wow... five years. So hard to believe. At the end of the day, it all comes down to this- I am such a lucky woman to have the husband I have, a precious daughter to love, and to live a life filled with family and blessings and goodness. God has been amazingly wonderful to me.

My sweetest, little blessing wanted to do something "so special" for her Daddy for Valentine's Day. There are not too many things in the world that Daddy likes better than chocolate cupcakes, so we decided to bake cupcakes "with extra love in them for Daddy! He's going to be really, really excited!" :)
"Mommy, these cupcakes are taking a really, really long time!!" (Everything's 'really, really' these days:)
Special sprinkles...
The official taste-tester...
Daddy's home!! Ella couldn't wait to give him his valentine- "Daddy, look what I did for you!"
And she got a pretty special treat in return... yep, you guessed it- it's a "really, really big heart balloon!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
I got a special treat, too- the most beautiful bouquet of roses and lilies.
Silly girl!!
These flowers are getting more gorgeous by the day.
The rest of the weekend kind of flew by. On Sunday, Papaw and Mamaw came up to see us and, of course, Ella had a ball. I unfortunately had to sleep most of the day because of work, and we didn't manage to get any pictures (!!), but Ella got spoiled with more Valentine gifts. Thanks so much, guys, for the lite brite- it is definitely a hit!! We love you all!!
