Mine was pretty uneventful until we got home from church and lunch. I was busy talking on the phone to a friend and had noticed that Mike had disappeared upstairs for a long time. After I got off the phone, I called up there and asked him what he was doing. I thought he said laying, which I thought resting. I headed up and I saw him rushing out of my craft room "Laying down I said???" and he told me he said "PLAYING!!!..not LAYING!!!" I said "What are you doing in there?" He said "Oh, you just couldn't stay downstairs for a few more minutes." What for I asked while I was walking in the room. And then I saw what he was up to!!!! He was making me a Valentine's Day card. Can you believe it??? Along with the card, he gave me a flowering plant too! This is the most special card that I have ever received. How cool is this??? Isn't he the greatest!!! This is why I love him so much. Thanks Mike your awesome!
He said he didn't get to finish it, that he was looking for a small alphabet set to stamp "Mike" in the middle of the heart. I told him to go ahead and finish it be he said that was OK. So, below is his finished card that he made. I hope it's not his last. It was such a great surprise. Love ya, Mike. Bren
