Family Date

Clay took Izzy and me out to dinner tonight for Valentine's day. We went to the Olive Garden, and well... this is what happens when you take Izzy to a nice restaurant. She ends up with spaghetti sauce all over her face. It was so funny. She loves to slurp noodles and they were just flapping all around as she did so. I had to get a picture. Love it!

Clay got me TWO boxes of chocolate turtles :) He got Izzy a stuffed pink cat with chocolate hearts, and Izzy and I got Clay a stuffed turtle (Clay loves turtles) with some sweetheart candies. We had a fun evening as a family, and now Clay and I are going to watch American Pickers as part of our romantic evening together. :)

Daddy-Daughter Date

I had one of those best-day-ever days on Saturday. My dad and I went shopping, just me and my daddy. :) I had such a great time spending time with my dad. It was so fun, and it's not something I get to do much of anymore. It made me feel special, like I was his little girl again (though I know I'll always be). I love my dad (and mom) and all the wonderful things they do for me and my family. I am so grateful that I was blessed with such wonderful parents. They raised my sister and I with such loving care; we always knew they were there for us when we needed them and because of that, now that my sister and I are adults, our relationship with them has blossomed into such a wonderful friendship. I love you so much mom and dad. You did a great job with us and we appreciate you greatly.

Go Izzy!

So, when Izzy got off the bus the other day she told me something quite interesting.

Izzy: "Mommy, Andrew (a boy on her bus) told me he was in love with me." She was then quiet for a moment. "Isn't that WEIRD?"

All I can say is GO IZZY! As long as she keeps that state of mind for several more years then it will all be gravy baby. :)
