You know you're a parent of a toddler when all you sing on Valentine's Day is the Daniel Tiger Love Day song. Jon hates the show because the songs get stuck in his head but they are catchy and have such good messages! Anyway, yesterday was Valentine's Day and I managed to do a mini photo shoot with the kiddos in the backyard before church. Getting up at the crack of dawn really allows you to do so much before church on Sundays. Jon slept in because I went away for 24 hours and missed my bebes but 6am came way earlier than the lazy Saturday morning I had at a girlfriends house in Houston (more to come). We were out getting donuts by 7am and actually got to church on time. I loved that Vday was on a Sunday because I was reminded that I can love these little sugars because of Jesus and what He did on the cross. John 3:16 is Valentine's Day y'all! 3 years ago our first night with our old Missional Community group was on Valentine's Day so we love spending it with our group to this day. Nothing better than spending love day with MANY people you love who also love Jesus. I made a 6lb frozen lasagna from Sams, drank an Arnold Palmer, and enjoyed getting to hear each couple in our group share about their favorite part of their spouse...both physical and emotional. After putting the kiddos to bed, Jon and I curled up on our outdoor sofa and lit a fire in the pit. It was 60 degrees... another reason I have to ask you Northerners how the heck you live there?! I'm hoping to get some more posts in this week, I have a goal of getting out my good camera at least once a week and I'm 2 weeks strong! I hope your Valentine's Day was relaxing and full of sugar.
Enjoy these cuties.
