You might think the beautiful flowers are from Valentine’s Day, but they aren’t. They are from my birthday, and I just remembered that I never posted a picture of them. Aren’t they beautiful! D had them delivered to me at my parents’ house. It was the first time I have ever had flowers delivered. So fun to get these in the mail. Love him.


You might think this beautiful blooming jasmine is from Valentine’s day. Nope. It’s from Patrick and Noel’s wedding. I transplanted it and look how good it’s blooming! I don’t have a good history with flowers, but I am really going to work on actually watering this one. But I can grow cucumbers. Which reminds me that I should get started on my veggie garden soon.

Valentine’s day did not go unnoticed. D left a card and some candy. I had a yummy meal planned, but it had to get rescheduled, since I ended up babysitting Justin and Kayla, and i wasn’t about to take 4 little kids to the grocery store. But I made it tonight, and it was SO good. To quote Derek, “This is restaurant good!” It was a Rachael Ray 30 Minute Meal, so it wasn’t even super difficult. It was spaghetti with sausage and peppers. I am sure some of you will want to make this, so here is a link to the spaghetti recipe, and here is the link to the peppers and sausage. I didn’t serve the sausage and peppers over the bread like the recipe says-I just served it with the spaghetti. It was so yummy!

How cute are these? I love Connor’s artwork so much. This one he did at school. My favorite part is Derek’s beard. Love that he draws those little details in!

And this one he did at rest time one day. It is the first time that he has ever drawn something and I could tell what it was without an explanation. Can you tell what it is? Or is it just because I am his mom and I know what is on his mind?


Happy Friday!

  1. Pretty, pretty flowers!! I may have to go check out that spaghetti recipe! Anytime you get “restaurant good”, you know it’s a keeper!

    Connor’s artwork is great! Ok, I’m going to guess on the second one, but don’t laugh…

    I think it’s either:
    a)a space shuttele
    b)a turtle
    c)an airplane
    d)some kind of bug

    did I get close??

    Happy Friday!

  2. Definitely an airplane with a propeller and lots of windows (must be a cross between an single engine airplane and a jet liner…tee hee. Did he write his name at the bottom? Lovin’ it! Okay…you gotta let me know if I got it right?

  3. Okay, I am with Suzanne. My guess was that it’s either an airplane or a space shuttle. I love the flowers. That Jasmine is absolutely gorgeous!!! I would love to have a Jasmine vine!


  4. I really like that Connor paid attention to the detail that you have one eye that is bigger than the other! 🙂 I would go with a plane on the second artwork.

  5. connor is a very advanced artist! i still know lots of kids that can’t begin to do the kind of details that he does. what a smart one you have:)
