Boys are sweet.

I love boys. I really, really love boys. Girls are wonderful, but what they say about a mommy and her boys is true, they have a special place in my heart, probably mostly because they're so different, yet so sweet.

We got Lady Bug Land for the children for Christmas. We ordered our ladybug larvae and when they came and hatched, the children went outside scouring the plants for aphids. Thankfully (the only time this may be true) our flowers outside were loaded with them. It made the ladybugs very happy.

So the other day, quite some time after all of the ladybugs had passed on to ladybug heaven, Luke came in with a little flower for me..."Mommy!" He said excitedly, "It's FULL of bugs, too!" Hehehe...apparently he didn't realize the bugs were for the ladybugs and not for me! What a darling little guy.

Today he was the "flower delivery man" and kept ringing the doorbell and "delivering" flowers to me. Does it get any sweeter than that?

Awwww, Luke IS a pretty sweet little guy! I was just thinking that I can't wait to see my niece and nephew critters next weekend. Tell him to find some aphids for me; I'm sure Harry will eat them!

Hehehe...Harry would probably love them! I think we've got plenty to go around...thankfully those flowers seem pretty hardy. We look forward to seeing you guys too, I wonder if mom will share Patton this time!?!
