happy heart day!

a few weeks ago, we were blessed with a crazy unseasonably warm saturday. we're talking near 70 degrees in january!

so, of course, i did what any momma would do.

i dressed choi boy in some cute duds and took him out for an early valentine's day photo shoot.

duh!

okay, okay, we did spend the morning outside playing and playing in the sunshine. ;)

and post nap, we headed out to enjoy the last of the sunshine so we could share some valentine's love with y'all.

(okay, so there may have been some bribing going on...)

hooray for organic fruit snacks that make me feel slightly less guilty about bribery! slightly.

we (meaning *i*) took our (meaning *my*) two favorite shots and added a border and some text using picnik and picasa in order to gussy them up a bit so we could send them off to our family and have CB give them to his buddies at daycare.

a little scrapbook paper and double-sided tape (i love me some double-sided tape! holla!) later, they were ready to go!

as much as valentine's day is a silly little made up holiday, i can't help but feel totally giddy about sending CB off to "school" with valentines to give to his buddies...it reminds me of my own childhood valentines and all the carefree fun that came with them. and the chocolate. the chocolate that came with them was awe to the some.

except, CB's valentines contain something a little cooler...literally and figuratively -- each of his buddies are getting coupons for a free chick-fil-a ice dream! :)

and for those of you that do not go to daycare with CB -- while i cannot offer you free ice dream, CB *does* have one more charming smile up his sleeve for you.

  3. Oh CB! Styling indeed! I wish I could get Alex to wear some nice clothes... he is quite the stubborn boy. I love the last picture - I think that one needs to be blown up and put up on a wall.
