This year instead of store bought cards, I typed up "love notes"- a list of 10 Things I Love About You for each of the kids. I just wanted to do something more significant that gave them some affirming messages about who we think they are. I used my book stands to prop them up on the table. I bought some mini-oreos and dipped in chocolate for their "treat" and surrounded them with paper doilies.
Tera made up this valentine for me...we think the nickname "tootsie wootsie" is just too funny not to use!
Tera's idea of a Valentine's breakfast-peanut butter toast with heart shaped red sugar sprinkles
Our valentines to each other...
I awoke to find that my husband had left me a sweet valentine on the table and didn't get in bed until 5 AM to do so. He's so sweet! I think I'll keep him forever!
I hadn't mentioned getting the kids valentines to JP. So he got them a little something, too.
Hey, it's been a love fest and a sugar (the edible kind) fest today, but could you ask for anything more on Valentine's Day!
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
