Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Our traditional family Valentines dinner

This started 6 years ago and continues today. It is now as looked forward to by the older kiddos as it is by us. We had salmon with dill cream sauce, potatoes, green beans almondine, PINK sparkling juice, brownies with ice cream (both homemade and delish), lots of candy, cards, roses, gifts, but most of all a table filled with happy, laughing, precious little people who fill our lives with constant joy! Jimmy and I have so very much to celebrate on Valentines... Our deep, strong love and the five lives our love is represented through! Happy Valentines to the six most incredible people I am blessed to love!!

A visit to Granna for Valentines

Jimmy drove the girls and I up to see Granna at the nursing home tonight. She was so happy to see the girls (and me) and receive their handmade Valentines cards and some yummy dark chocolate candies (not handmade).

The girls are learning a lot about life outside themselves by their visits to Granna. It is teaching them many things like how to make engaging conversations, how to politely listen to and enjoy stories from days gone by, how to have compassion for those who may be sad or lonely, how to use those manners we practice so much at home... Etc. The list goes on. The girls will be better people for these times with Granna and will forever carry with them fond memories of the relationship they built even at such a young age.
