Happy Valentine's Day

So, the plan was to take a sweet valentine's day picture in the new outfit grammy sent and make a video of Ruby saying I love you. And what is it they say about plans.....? Needless to say, taking the pictures and video was easy enough and lots of fun! Step #2- trying to figure out for the first time how to download, upload, transfer, edit, or whatever a video on the computer. Not being able to find the manual to the camcorder doesn't help! Jason steps in with his laptop to try and do it to the cries of his wife,"but I want to learn how to do it myself!" (and I thought this phrase just came naturally to my 2 year old!) In the hopes of being loving on this of all days, we silently carry on with trying to figure it out. I won't go into the details but we were engrosed (spelling? spellcheck isn't working). Suddenly, I realized, as many of you out there do, it's way too quiet. True, Ruby's on my bed watching a video, but I can't remember how much time has past. I peak into the room and she catches my eye and exclaims "uh-oh mommy!" Cream from my bedside table is shmeared all over. Now, I couldn't help but laugh (of course, a little lax on the discipline I know) at her exclammation- I know she knows how to use "uh-oh" properly so did she truly devise it in her head: "okay, if mommy comes in before I get this stuff all rubbed in I'll just say uh-oh as if the cream lept out of her drawer and opened itself up and with me kicking and screaming just got all over me. Surely she'll get mad at the cream and not me, oh, and I'll flash my dimpled smile just in case." Wish the video had been set up in there instead, what fun was had! Hope you all have just as great a valentine's day, we love you all very much! XOXOXXO
