Have a Tiggeriffic Valentine's Day~!

Tracie called me this morning to tell me she was sick and could I take Ben to school... OF course I would. I rolled out of bed and got dressed. Made coffee ~ morning doesn't start until I have a cup of coffee. Off I go~ to Ben's house. He was still in his PJ's watching Curious George and was a happy boy. I got him dressed and got him a bowl of Captain Crunch..He must of been hungry, he ate it all...1 cup of cereal with milk. He drank the milk out of the bowl just like a boy should. LOL... I took him to school 7 miles north of his house. He went in good but when we got to the Pre-School room he clung to me like a monkey... crying. GranAnnie I don't wanna go~! Your my best freind I want to stay with you.. that really tugged on my heart.. So I told him he would miss the party if he came home with me.. He said "Party?".. then he wanted to stay.. LOL
what a boy.. It's almost time to pick him up today.. It's my night to take care of Ben.. Hopefully Tracie is feeling better ~ she has school tonight. I made some pie dough and Ben and I are going to make heart shape pie dough cookies.. Sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar (Splenda) on them... Yum Yum~! I was going to make sugar cookies but decided he didn't need all that sugar so he could be hyper in his diaper.. Doesn't take much sugar and he is a busy busy boy....

Last night I was looking at all the bloggers I follow and came across Nicole's blog.. IT is called:
Coming Alive In ..she has this written on her banner:
A woman's heart should be so lost in God that a man needs to seek Him in order to find her...

WOW isn't that a hearty message.. IT was a golden nugget.. and then today she has this super great post for Valentines' day.. You'll have to go visit her website and see what she has written.. She is tiggeriffic~!

Was thinking of Spring today and seeing that my vegetable and flower garden are unc0vered with snow..I have this embroidered picture that my daughter-in-law gave me last year for Mothers Day. It's titled
"What my Garden Gives"
It gives me many small surprises
when the sun sets and also rises
a place to think and capture grace.
it slows my mind to a peaceful pace
it brings me color filled with cheer
that lasts and lasts throughout the year
it gives me patience and peace of mind
it gives me the time I so need to find
it glows and dances with such great hope
it offers me the strength to cope
So bless this garden, my place to start,
for every day it lends me it's heart..
Maria was such a wonderful gal and she gave such wonderful gifts to me. Cancer took her to be with God ~ Nov. 2009.. I have lots of things to remind me of her gracious giving heart.
I shall see her again someday and it will be a joyous reunion.. Hugs and Kisses...~!

Well, time to go get Benny.. It's a beautiful day...almost 40 degrees ~ the sun is shining brightly . and the snow is melting. I can see the grass.. It's brown with a tinge of green.. Yeah~!
Have a Tiggeriffic Valentine's Day...Ta Ta For Now...from Iowa:)

Oh, so glad you got to spend time with Ben...children make our heart so much lighter!
I love the idea of the dough sprinkled with sugar/cinnamon mix. Maybe I'll give that a try!
I'll check out the blog you mentioned and in the meantime, have an utterly awesome evening!

JDaniel drinks milk out of the bowl too. I have tried to break him of the habit, but I think he has seen me do it from time to time.
