I'm an alien-I think


Elizabeth has been making Valentines for everyone in our family and her friends at school. She won't tell me that they are for me, she tells me they are for "aliens". I guess she believes that she is misleading me and will have this big surprise for me on Valentines Day. I am playing along and find it quite endearing when she loudly whispers to Jeff that "alien mom gets two Valentine hearts". Evidently, he is in on the secret and is not an alien. During her outpouring of love she is making them for every friend in her class. God bless that child and her sweet spirit. I hope and pray (as I am choosing to believe every anxious mom does) that her friends will accept these homemade Valentines with excitement as she has labored over them all night. She traced, cut out and wrote every child's name on the hearts and picked out specific colors that her classmates would like. We are taping a lollipop on them for the party because this mom knows a little extra somethin' won't hurt.

  1. That's priceless! She is such a sweetheart. I'm sure the kids will love the homemade valentines. ESPECIALLY with a sucker attached. Hugs to the girls and baby Charlie!

Elizabeth's quotes during her illness

On Tamiful:
"This medicine tastes worse than mud!" When has she tasted mud???

On her fever:
"I'll never be able to go outside with this fever." Poor baby wanted to ride her bike.

"Will I be sick forever?"

On Jeff staying up with her in the middle of the night:
"Daddy, you need to get some sleep too." He was "sleeping" in the chair in the living room while she was on the couch.
