Ok, so I couldn't resist blogging about this. Mostly for myself... but also to let my man know that I do notice the cute stuff he does. This past Sunday, I was strapped for a primary teacher... of course John volunteered. He is supposed to be in Elders Quorum, but knows how I have been finding subs forever. During sharing time, he had messengers (girls in the class) bring me little notes. This is one of the notes. I was sitting in the back of the room, and was hoping he wouldn't draw too much attention to his charade. After delivering the note, they would watch excitedly to see my reaction. I felt a little silly because they were supposed to be paying attention. Despite my natural instinct to shoot him down (what I normally would have done to mess with him), I checked "yes". After all, the young girls were waiting for my answer and I wouldn't want them to think I was heartless. John is always doing cute things like this, and it did make primary a tad more exciting.
This picture was taken yesterday. My friend and I were making hair bows for our daughters (I have been craving some gigantic bows for Ellie's hair). We were working away when John got home from the movie with her husband. I tried to convince him to sit down and make bows with us (something he would have done happily). Side note.. John is actually really crafty and has spent more time at the sewing machine than myself. He is forced to do his own mending because his clothes will sit in a pile forever waiting for me. Anyway, he claimed he didn't want to make my friend look bad, so he better not participate. Instead I asked him to cut up some Kiwis for me. This was what he presented to me... all arranged with tooth picks to eat it. He totally cracks me up! I guess we can add fruit designer to his talents. Lately we have been consuming a lot of fruit and veggies right before bed- he'll have to keep the fancy snacks coming now that I know what he's capable of ;-)
