Happy Valentine's Day!

My Three Favorite Valentines

Valentine's Day has never been a favorite holiday of mine.  Not until we had Cole and Chase anyway.  Now I'm a sap and love it.  Even though there is rarely an hour that goes by when we're together that the words "I love you" aren't said to the boys, it's still nice to have this day to do some special things.  Since Scott won't be home til late tonight because of practice, last night we made pizza together - dough and all.  It was really fun to have all 4 of us in the kitchen working together.  Scott and Chase made one pizza, Cole and I made the other.  Not that it was a competition at all, but mine and Cole's was better.  Did I say that out loud?

Last night I asked Cole to name five things he loved.  Here is his list:

1) My family
2) Sports
3) Playing with Chase
4) Playing with friends
5) the Steelers

He went over it with me to be sure I had the proper order.

Then I asked Chase, "Chase, what do you love?"  His responses, completely unsolicited (honestly):

1) Mommy
2) Daddy
3) Coley

He was done after that.  I asked if he loved puzzles and he said yes.  Cole asked if he loved sports and he said yes.  I asked if he loved to poop and he said, "Yes........NO! Silly Mommy!"

Happy Valentine's Day to you!!
