Love is what makes the world go around after all.
She got the idea for that owl online and was in deep concentration for a long time to make that thing for her teacher.
She also used her hard-earned money to buy valentine-grams for friends at school and was pretty dang excited about that.
We made valentine’s for Max, Elle, Max’s companion and our cousin on a mission and sent them off with treats as well.
(My mom always did that for us and now we do that too.)
Grace took off before we could snap a pic of her here…
I found this on the counter when I got home from delivering some things to my young women:
How sweet is that?
Oh, and this is how I was greeted:
Have I mentioned how much we love our puppy?
Grace left for dinner with friends but other friends came over to help us with our heart-shaped pizza since I had called their mom for tips on how to grill it out on the grill.
How sweet is that that they just jumped in to help?
Sweetest kids ever.
We had our own little dinner complete with one of our helpers minus Grace…
We missed her the first time Bo tried to FaceTime her:
But then we got her.
Not sure how my valentine Max spent the day, but I’m sure he was working hard somewhere, and hope he felt the love too since his little package won’t get there ’til next week.
And all the while Dave was in China, working hard, his Valentine’s Day already passed since he was 16 hours ahead.
I love that Valentine’s Day is a day to show love. LOVE MORE. Love it all. And loved sharing that day with my girls and friends and puppy.
Aw so cute! Happy Late Valentine's Day!
I love your posts. I'm very impressed that your college daughter sent you some pictures of her package and the contents inside for you to include with your blog post too. So cute.
Such a cute fam! Can you tell me where you got that awesome green vase?
i have taken a break from spending time on the internet so I could focus on other things. I am so glad I came to check your page. I didn't realize what an impact it made on my mood and how much it motivates me to get things done. Thanks for sharing portions of your life with us. On another note. My house is currently gutted and we are in the process of choosing flooring. We want long wood ceramic tiles similar to yours laid together as closely as possible. However, we were told by our contractor that they bow after awhile. Do you feel like that is true with the product. I can always hire another flooring company. Thanks!
Thanks for the nice note Rachel!
Are you talking about our kitchen floor? That is actually real wood, Provenza Old World Fossil Stone. I really like it. We do have ceramic tile that looks like wood in our girls' bathroom and I love it in there. We laid them together pretty close and haven't had any problems, but it's a pretty small area.
Thanks Shawni. Yes, I meant the kitchen floor. I will look into real wood. My kids are 3,4 & 5 so I am unsure about real wood. (They have made swimming pools with the garden hose in our living room before.) Thank you for the Comment about the ceramic flooring in the bedrooms. Off to choose the perfect white paint!
