Valentines Day Crafts

It's hard for me to sit and do a craft with the boys. Xander gets really excited and usually ends up making messing everywhere. So I had some scraps of paper, sweet stickers and decided to let them go at it and cut and paste whatever they wanted on their card stock hearts that I bought on clearance like 2 years ago. Here are some pictures of their sweet little projects! Hope you enjoy them!

Taking all the ribbon out from my left over Wreath Project



Austin LOVED using these fun scissors!


Even Xander was trying to figure all of this out...


Austin's masterpiece :0)


Both of the masterpieces! They gave their "presents" to daddy who was in the other room! Something that I will keep and treasure forever! How I love my little men, they ARE the light of my life!

Shaken.

While I came home for lunch today, I received a text message from my brother reading "Did you hear what happened to Mrs. Nelson's daughter? She was in an awful accident and didn't survive"

(Mrs. Nelson was my English teacher in high school, very sweet, everyone LOVED her!)

I hadn't heard anything, so I quickly pulled up the local newspaper online, and I am horrified at what I read...

I have this immediate urge to go and see my boys, I just want to hold them. I didn't want to return to work for the other half of my day. I just didn't. I had to see their sweet faces... 


But the reality was that I couldn't. I had to go back to work and finish my day (although I don't know how I did, I wasn't really "present") but after work, I went and picked them up and all was good again. The pangs I had in my heart just seemed to melt away, with their kisses and hugs.

I have thought about Mrs. Nelson and her family all day today. My mind has been there with them all day. This is an awful and difficult time for them, may God bless them with peace during this time.
