"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Valentine's Day

What a fun Valentine's Day we had! We started off the day by giving the boys little "love" treats from Mommy and Daddy! Carson was really excited about his giant bag of M&M's! Tanner loved his gift too - so much he wanted to eat it! :) Later in the morning, my good friend Amanda hosted a wonderful Valentine's playdate. She made heart shaped rice krispie treats, and a great lunch including heart shaped sandwiches for the kids. Landy and his yummy treat! After naps, Carson and I made Valentine's cookies for Daddy. This is the first time I have ever made homemade cookies with Carson. What fun! He loved rolling out the dough. We used heart shaped cookie cutters, pink icing, and sprinkles. Of course we had to taste them to make sure they were good enough for Daddy to eat. I left Carson with an iced cookie in his chair, only to find him minutes later rubbing the icing all over his hands like soap! There is no picture of that since I was running him to the sink! :)
Matt's mom watched the boys the Saturday before Valentine's day so Matt and I could have a date, but after the boys went to bed on Valentine's night, we ate a delicious heart shaped pizza and watched our favorite show! We hope you all had a love-filled day too!
