My Loves

I am such a lucky girl to have 3 special Valentine's this year.  We didn't do anything special for Valentine's day but Hudson did really love the fact that he got fun heart treats at school.  I think Hudson judges all things by what food was present during the event.  Whenever I ask him how his day at school or bible study class went he always tells me about what snack they had first! Haha!  The way to this boy's heart is really through his stomach.  When Grandma gave him his Valentine's presents from her he was so excited about the fruit snacks inside and made sure to get all of those out first before opening his other presents.  Here are some things we were up to on Valentine's week:

This is Hudson's "Heart Man" that he made at Preschool.   So far he is adjusting well to his new classroom.  Some days he even walks in with no tears!  He has been talking about all of his new friends there so I know he is having a good time.  I was hoping that he would be so tired after school that he would nap well when he got home but so far it has backfired on me. I think he is having so much fun that he gets worked up and takes forever to fall asleep!  

We went to Chick-fil-a on family night for Valentine's crafts and it turned in to a very interesting scene. We have been before and I knew that he wasn't a fan of the cow costume but on this night the fear jumped to another level because he thought the Cow might get his food.  I will say that this particular cow is a little pushy and continued to come over to our table even when Hudson denied him a high-five and said "No Cow!"  Zach might have taken it a little far when he told Hudson that the cow might eat his food if he didn't eat it.  Hudson immediately tried to cover his food with his hands so the cow couldn't see it.  It was pitiful.  The cow left for awhile and after Hudson made his Valentine and ate a little dinner we let him go get the ice cream that they offer on kids night.  He was very excited to tell the cashier that he would like sprinkles on his. All was wonderful until he saw the cow again.  He freaked out and started shaking because he was terrified that the cow would come over towards him and his ice cream.  Zach had to take him out to the car to finish his ice cream and I was left getting Luke and all of our stuff together.  A sweet older couple at the table beside me offered to help because they felt bad for me after the scene.  Of course Hudson was just fine once he was in the safety of the car.  He finished his ice cream on the ride home.

Here is a short clip of Hudson trying to hide his food while keeping an eye on the cow.

Ice cream before cow..

Ice Cream after cow in the car seat. :)

Hudson made a fruit loop bracelet at bible study!  He thought that was the coolest thing ever.

Happy Valentine's day from Luke.  

Looking so big in his Bumbo

This was taken when Zach "accidentally" locked us out of the house while we were playing.  Hudson was determined that he could get it open.

It randomly snowed all day on Saturday but did not accumulate because the ground was too warm.  Hudson still had fun playing in it.

He said that he was "Ready to  go to Bizi Kidz!"

Opening his Valentine's presents from Grandma.

Very excited about the fruit snacks.

He had to eat a pack right away.  He looks like such a big boy here.

A ball that lights up and bounces!

He is so silly.

Hudson is starting to try to figure out ways to outsmart us already.  Grandma got him a box of animal crackers in a Valentine box as part of his present.  He has been allowed to have a few per day as a snack.  On this day he had already had a snack and knew that I would say no if he asked for cookies.  So with a very serious look on his face and in the sweetest voice he came over to me with his dinosaurs in hand and said,  "Mommy, the dinosaurs want Valentine's cookies. Can dinosaurs have Valentine's cookies please?"  Haha! Smart sneaky boy.  It was too cute to resist so I gave him a bowl.  I was also interested to see if was going to "share" with the dinosaurs.

Here he is trying out his new thigh-high boots. ;)
