Brotherly Love

The boys had a great Valentine's Day; they got some adorable cards from their grandparents and friends (in the pictures, Connor is holding a car we made from Cameron's card from Pop Pop and Grandma), and they enjoyed their gifts from Mommy and Daddy, too. Cameron beamed while telling me the details of his preschool party (he got to eat two chocolate doughnuts!) and Connor was a hoot kissing and hugging his new Valentine's Day bear. Here they are showing their love:

Cameron is wearing the Valentine's Day crown he made at school in the above video. And Connor is just learning to say "I love you" (can you see my heart swelling?). Their shirts may not be legible, but they both say "heart breaker." And it's true; I love them so much, sometimes it practically breaks my heart!

Disclaimer: For some reason, I feel the need to add that our dining room does not always have boxes stacked in the corner. We recently had to have an entirely new drainage system installed in our house, and we are in the midst of rearranging our storage space. There. Now I feel better. :)

Hi! I thought it was too funny that you had to mention all the boxes!!! That is something I would have totally felt the need to expain also! Isabelle (7yr) is Peanut because she used to tuck her legs up while she slept and while we held her resembling a little peanut. Sophia (9 months) is Pumpkin. Her chubby cheeks even showed up in my ultrasound!

I'm lovin' our two little valentine guys! To Cameron: "Happy ValenTIMES Day" to you, too, Sweetheart! And to Connor: "I ray oo," too! Love to all. Keep up the great work, Kristin. What a sweet video, and of course, I loved the b&w pic, as always.

Isn't it funny how Valentine's Day has changed? I remember when my husband and I were dating how important it was. It is still a special day, but different. Now, there are just so many boys to love! I love your heartbreakers shirts also.

Kristin~ I just went to your Chicken Soup Story link. Although I've read your story many times before, it "makes my eyes leak" every time! What a wonderful job on the presentation. I gotta wonder--is that you playing the piano, or perhaps J.B.? It's lovely, either way!

Gemma~ Thanks for the compliments. Actually, the site that my Chicken Soup story is on was not created by me or anyone I know. It's a Christian site; I just Googled my story and up it came. (It's against copyright laws for it to be there, but I won't tell.) I just thought I would make it a link since someone already did all the work. I have actually found it on international sites as well, translated into German and even Japanese. :)
