It is Valentine's Day

     Let me just start by saying that in my opinion as the mom of twins (who share a room) the greatest baby-proofing device ever created is this little pressure mounted thing that prevents kids from being able to open a door.  It truly is wonderful.  You mount it at the top of, say, a bedroom door, and voila little midgets can only open the door a few inches and cannot close it back on their fingers.  GENIUS!!

52 Reasons.....

Happy Valentine's Day!  

     I've always loved this holiday.  Even before I was married.  Maybe it is a Hallmark Holiday, but ever since I was little I've always loved that there's a day to celebrate love! This year we will also have been married for 5 years.  So I wanted to do something special for this Valentine's day.

     For a gift I made my husband a deck of cards, 52 reasons why I love him!  It wasn't exactly easy.  I didn't just sit down and come up with all of these in 20 minutes.  So don't feel bad if you try this someday and can't either.  Each card has a reason and best of all he will even be able to actually use them if he wants to.  A lot of people don't know this, but he's actually a pretty sentimental guy.  Anyway, I had seen a few craft projects using a regular deck of cards and scrapbook paper, like these.  They would be really wonderful gifts, but seemed more like something I (or any woman) would like, but not for a practical guy like my husband.

     I can't help but want to shout from the rooftops why I love this man so much!  So here are the reasons:
