Thump thumpity thump thump thump! The sound of Anya's feet skipping across the floor woke me up. I knew instantly who it was, and dragged myself out of bed to go find out why she was up...at 4:48 a.m. And that other sound I was hearing...yes, it was definitely whispering. When I got upstairs, Anya was just climbing back into her bed, Jaela and Macey were in Macey's bed, and all three of them were whispering excitedly about the valentines I'd left at the ends of their beds.
I am a Valentine's Day Scrooge, but thanks to their grandmas, the girls have been counting down the days until Valentine's Day. They've planned out what they were going to wear today, and they've been working all week on envelopes for each other that are overflowing with notes and drawings. Jaela gave me a Valentine's note a few days ago, and when I went to bed last night, I found an envelope from Macey on my bedside table:
So I dug out some valentines and put one at the end of each girls bed, and one by Isaak's door.
And now, the girls and I have all been up since 4:48.
Hmph. Vah Humvug.
