Valentines Love

Some people aren't fans of Valentine's Day. I LOVE it. And you know why? Its the time when my kids truly think about each other. They make the cutest cards and give each other and us the most thoughtful gifts. Ella gave me her body splash and had Cali give me one of her lotions and even helped her make me a card. Each person made something for everyone(And they did it on their own! I didn't even give them the idea.) Nothing store bought. They gave up things they own, things that are special to them, to make us happy. It was just so sweet. Aubrey even gave Joey and I 7 dollars so we could go on a date to Chili's to eat a molten cake together:) 7 dollars is a lot to a 9 year old! It made me tear up. What sweet girls we are blessed to have. I love Valentines because I just love the love:) Here are cute pics from our family gift exchange.





And I also didn't mind the flowers and night off from cooking...another perk of the holiday. :)

I love the way the girls thought it all out. I think that is so special the way they did it. Absolutely perfect and even down to the dessert that is so amazing. These girls are definitely worth their weight in gold. I'm sure that they will help Ammon out when he gets older its only going to get better for sure.
