Justin was traveling the week of Valentine's Day this year, so the kids and I made him a card the week before (gasp!). Thank you, Pinterest.
And, we made heart hair. Idea compliments of Pinterest.
We made valentines for Grace's pre-k class and valentines for each girl to give out at Sunday School. Again, thank you, Pinterest. Are you sensing a theme? No picture of the actual valentines, so how about 1 of my valentines? :)
Apparently, I forgot the lesson about gum chewing during pictures. Ahem, Grace.
So what do I love about my Valentines? Here are a few things:
Grace - I love the dimple in her chin, the shape of her hands, the sweet mothering nature with which she approaches Reece. I love her girly girl personality. I love that she loves school, sparkle, and purses. I love that she is so observant that she knows every detail of what everyone else is doing. I love teaching her how to write and seeing the surprise and joy on her face as she learns.
Emma Kate - I love the pout of her lips and the color of her eyes. I love that she is a ball of sass. I love that I have to hold my breath because the words coming out of her mouth just might embarrass me or make me roll with laughter. I love that she loves snuggling, making Reece laugh, and her new cowboy boots. I love that despite loving skirts, she hates the way that tights "hug her legs". I love that she takes pleasure in helping others and singing at the top of her lungs. I love that she loves with no reservations.
Reece - I love the smell of his skin, how his eyelashes lay on his cheeks when his eyes are closed, and how he smiles with his whole face. I love that he has found his toes. I love that he can blow raspberries and make his sisters beam with just one look. I love that he is a mama's boy. I love that he knows the face and voice of his family members. I love that he loves to be held.
Happy Valentine's Day, Loves.
