"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

We've had a fun month celebrating love in our house! Crafts galore, treats, and lots of talk about our memory verse for the month "Love God with all your HEART". Carson and Tanner had the most fun getting crafty on a project they made for Daddy for Valentine's Day. Matt went out of town for the week, and the boys made him a handprint/footprint craft for him to open while he was gone. They were silly! Thanks to a great idea I found on pinterest, Carson handmade his Valentine's for his preschool class. They were dinosaurs complete with googly eyes, and chocolates for the spikes on the stegosaurus. It read, "Have a DINOmite Valentine's Day!" He couldn't wait to give them out at his Valentine's party. We had a great time making red heart rice krispie treats. They were so yummy! Carson was all about the stickyness!Tanner snuck one too! Can't celebrate Valentine's Day without heart shaped food! We had heart shaped pancakes for breakfast, and I made Carson's turkey and cheese sandwich into heart shapes for school. He said they tasted better...haha! On Valentine's night, Carson was my date to a Valentine's function at our church. We sure did miss Daddy, but we had so much fun together! Hope you all had a great day celebrating LOVE too!
