Any who...Thursday my Knox on his own (I never ever said one word about decorating or flowers or candles etc) got out our smell tea light candles, he got down two vases and filled one with glass marbles and those other glass decorating things. He cleared off AND set the table and then found fake flowers from downstairs in our craft bins to stick into the vase. WHOA! Who gave this boy a lesson in chivalry? Knox was too little to remember Brad giving me roses for Valentine's day 3 years ago. So..this was completely on his own. THEN as if that wasn't enough, the kid got the beautiful plums and nectarines out of the fridge and filled the other vase up- and they ate them at dinner!
Then he moved things around to look pretty..(same flowers and fruit vase and my new roses from Brad and Knox's Grotto). We had spaghetti and I was sure to compliment all he did to make dinner special.
