Happy Valentines Day!

I have to brag on Jimmy a little. I have the BEST husband in the entire world! I had a little bit of a busy week. I had close to 5 million papers to grade throughout the week. Jimmy spent 3 hours Tuesday night grading papers with me. No tv. Just the 2 of us and a stack of papers! I couldn't have done it without him. I think he kept me from a panic attack! Ha!

Friday, I got home from work to find the house cleaned. What a blessing! There were beautiful pink tulips in the kitchen (my favorite) and the sweetest card! We got to get all dressed up and went to Double Nickel Steakhouse just the 2 of us. He arranged for H to spend the night at Granna's. I got to sleep in until 11 this morning! I can't tell you the last time I did that! I love sleeping so that was a big gift. We hung out with our sweet boy this afternoon. All of this after we discussed not doing anything or buying gifts for Valentines! Thank you God for such an amazing husband!

I am a lousy wife. I didn't buy Jimmy a gift so I made dinner Saturday night. One of his favorites, spaghetti. I also did the dishes! Usually, I cook and he cleans. Sorry I'm not such a good cook, Babe.

You know I can't write a blog without a mention or picture of Hunter so here you go! Tonight was H's first experience with spaghetti! This was also the first time he has actually eaten off of his plate. In the past when I tried to serve him on a plate, he has dumped it onto his tray and thrown the plate on the floor. He did a great job and didn't get TOO messy. He is such a great eater! My kid is growing so fast!

I love both of my boys so much I think my heart might explode!

Welcome New Cousins (and Superman)!

Peyton Thomas and Landen Michael joined the Holloway family on January 10, 2009. We are so excited to welcome them to the world. We went to visit the new guys a few weekends ago. They are sooooo tiny! We had a blast letting the "bigger" kids get to know each other a little bit and loving on the little guys. Mimi and Papa had a fun time with ALL of their grandboys! We went to the park to feed the ducks. Hunter ate the bread I gave him to throw (no worries, it was fresh bread! Only the best for these ducks!) We played on the slides and swings. What a fun day!

Mimi and Papa bought H some new pjs for Valentines. What a cutie pie this kid is! He wore his Superman jammies very proudly. One of his new favorite toys is his daddy's hat. If he can get his hands on it, he wears it backwards on his head for the longest time. He also LOVES phones. He will pick up any phone he can get his hands on. He has his own that doesn't work, but that's no fun because he loves the ones that light up! H puts anything that looks like a phone up to his ear and either laughs or says hello (ok, it just sounds a little like hello!) He is precious!!!
