Thankful St Valentine's Day Thursday!

Thankful for these sweet kiddos!
With each child, my heart grows fuller and I am able to love more
and more!
More than I ever thought possible
Thankful for all the virtues that God is working on in me through these!
Thankful for this idea found on Pinterest!
Morning heart cinnamon rolls (from a can!)
 Thankful for our Love tree!
Thankful for all the beautiful love quotes and love Bible verses...
Thankful these were done years ago and we can take them out every year!
 Thankful I got my Valentine done for my husband!
I had to keep it clean, all the kids read it!  
He told me this morning it was the best gift he's ever been given!
(Thank you Pinterest)
 Thankful We got our Valentines done yesterday!
I found this cute idea for Mad Lib Valentines HERE
I'm Mad About YOU!
The little ones did not understand that one at all, 
"Why would you tell someone something MAD?"

 Thankful for our beautiful snow today!!
Thankful for beautiful pink and white flowers!
(they make the snow even prettier, don't they?)
 Thankful it looks as if God painted our world 

 Thankful for cute Valentine snacks!
Thankful for Valentine parties, I'm hosting!
Last year, I was not up to it at all, 
this year, I'm up for one family! 
(plus a friend for Jedi) 
Small and simple...treasure hunt, decorate Valentine bags,
 do some Valentine crafts and play play play
 If Love were a color....or a food....
 My little Sims
Thankful he is aware of being up on things and being "stuck"
so
It's time to teach him the stairs...down on the tummy, feet first!
I teach them young, then I don't need to worry so much!

  1. Oh my goodness, so cute! Mary Hannah's response is awesome about "her angels" and Colette's answer about the chocolate chip cookies, she is 100% correct. I laughed at Jedi's love song choice - about how to pretend your girlfriend died. Kids are so funny.

  3. What a fun celebration! I can already imagine little Sims scooting down the stairs feet first. The kids lists were great- this morning 10,000 reasons was playing in the car and my teenager was singing with all her heart, and I was, too! We all love that song.

    You two are such a beautiful couple- no wonder your kids are gorgeous!

  6. The interviews are adorable. They all had me smiling- especially if love was a food it would be salad! I am with Mary Hannah on that one, although the candy and chocolate chip cookies would work too.

    I love that so many of your children's favorite love song is a song about God's love. They obviously know what this day is really about. :)

    Happy Valentine's Day to your beautiful family.

  7. I woke up so groggy that I couldn't remember how to wind the cinnamon rolls properly! So I just tinted the frosting and called it breakfast! Love the interviews!
