And A Happy V-Day It Is!

The Muffin celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday. She had a visit from Gammy Gladys, who came bearing a balloon, card, sweet treat and $$$ Tree money! After we arrived at Nana and Pawpaw's Muff received her new boots and candy treats from Nana & Pawpaw and new flip flops from Auntie Sharalee and family. It's still too cool to wear flip flops outside, so Muff alternated between the boots and flip flops inside. The girl loves shoes!
My family also had a special Valentine treat for me. (I may just cry while typing about it.) My mom and sister gave me the new bedding for our Baby-to-be! This is one of the few baby items that I was not going to be getting because of our recent job news. I cried and Muff and Callie look concerned until they realized I was crying happy tears. New baby bedding will not fix the economy, but it sure is making me feel better. I know Big Daddy is relieved because he wants to give me everything I want and it's always hard when we just can't justify spending a couple of hundred dollars on something so pretty, sweet, cute and totally frivolous. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family.
We arrived home a little bit ago and I received my Valentine's Day surprise from my sweetheart. A single rose from Big Daddy and the biggest treat.......lots of progress on the baby's room! It may actually be ready to paint in the next couple of weeks. With any luck, I'll be sharing at least a small portion of Pacey Grace's room in a month or so.

Thanks for sharing your Valentine plans. I hope everyone spent a little time being thankful for the ones they love.

**AND I just read that my dear, sweet bloggy friend, Joy has her own Valentine's Day treat!! Jump over, read about it and leave her a comment!!**
