Best Card Ever

Yesterday morning Jaren woke up and told me "Happy to be Mother's Day" then went on to explain that he could NOT find a "soon to be Mother", Mother's Day card so he was going to make me one. I was actually glad. Jaren said he was going to use crayons!

He was busy all day. 2 hours before church he was out checking water (starting, stopping, making sure enough fertilizer is there). We went to church and had to come home for the 2nd hour so I could eat and he went out again. He came back, we left for the third hour and then we came home, he changed and went out again. I read for about half an hour then fell asleep. He came home while I was sleeping and he fell asleep, too. We woke up just in time to leave to his parent's house for dinner and then came home. He left AGAIN. He was gone ALL DAY! He was finally home around 8 and made me my card. I had been bugging him, "where is my card?" "when are you going to make my card?" I wasn't going to let him off the hook - he's never done anything like this before and I was very excited.

He went off with the crayons and a piece of paper and came back with this:
Of course, I'm full of hormonal crazies so I cried.
My favorite part is the belly. I said, "I love how you made my belly so big" to which he responded, "well, you had to know there was a baby in there." As if the baby arrow doesn't tell you. :)

He is wonderful and I think I'm going to make it mandatory that he just color me a card for everything from now on.

I forgot to mention how proud of himself he was that he used all of the colors I liked. Each letter is a different color and that is what he pointed out to me right away :) "See, I used the colors you like. Browns, and green and red and blue and pinks...." Basically every color in the crayon box.

awww that's so sweet! I think at one point I threw my unopened present across the room, but late after I calmed down I opened it up and loved it :) At the end of the day it was fabulous. we ate and talked and read outside and Ginger behaved so thats awesome. Jaren's a doll. Save that to show your baby. I CANT WAIT to find out what you are having!

hehe!! So cute that he made you a "Soon to be Mother's Day" card. I especially love the drawing of you. Tell him I said he should give up on the potato farming and become an artist!! (0;
