|Happy HEART Day!|
The Bouchards had a wonderful Valentine holiday that was made superb by the flood of treats for the girls at our doorstep. If you have never lived apart from family then listen up. Treats, surprises, mail...all the things that come the old fashioned way make you feel so loved! I can't explain it really. It makes you feel like someone really remembered. The computer always makes me wonder, did they just remember? did they set it up a month ago so they wouldn't forget me? etc... (please know that I love the computer for those very same reasons..I do have two kids...remember?) No, no getting it hand delivered just makes you feel special! And, of all days to feel loved and special this is the one. Moral of the story...send your family hand delivered treats to show the love!
So, there is a special box that is always full of little goodies that comes in the mail on holidays. The girls know the handwriting and when it arrives they go nuts because they know the fun that awaits. This holiday was no exception. Grandmommy and Granddaddy...ok Grandmommy really (sorry Granddaddy)...wraps each little treat in tissue paper, which I highly recommend. Cute colors, easy unwrap for all ages! The girls go nuts for this. Who knew it could be so easy? So this package came with some art projects that we got straight to because there is no waiting until later...of course.
Then there was nap time because Mommy had no nerves left after those two projects...a five year old with paint and a two year old who wanted the paint. What was I thinking? I know, I was thinking there was no getting out of doing it right then. We survived and while little bit napped, Olivia and I just did all the art we could stand. Check it out!

What a great holiday to reflect on the ones you love and the ones who love you! Thank you to everyone who "remembered" us on this special day, although I am starting to notice that Olivia and Addison get "remembered" more then Nate and I ;)
There are three things that remain - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these things is love.
