Valentine's Day

We had a low-key Valentine's. We are all still recovering from various sicknesses; maybe by the end of the week we will be back to 100%.

Eli was very excited to help mommy make heart pancakes to celebrate Valentine's.

Ileigh was happy to watch. (She does have her own toys, by the way. She just chooses things like sink stoppers instead.) 

Impressive, huh? Not really. I used a metal cookie cutter and filled it with batter. Next time I will just cut the hearts out post-grilling. 

Daddy had to eat and run to get to a meeting, but the kiddos and I got dressed for our weekly venture to Walmart. We were all smiles until I pulled out the camera for some pictures... 

Gosh, when he is cute, he is cute. 

So sweet! 

Man, she loves her brother. 

"Okay, mommy. You wanna hold her now?"
If you look close you can see the veggie puff in her mouth- she was apparently starving. She wolfed down a banana after these pictures. Oooops. 

She only smiles like that for Eli... 

I couldn't find her bow- I am such a bad girl mom. I need to work on that. 

Here is Eli showing off his V-Day art from church.  

We talked a lot about love and loving one another and the love Jesus has for us.
We rounded out the evening with Eli's gymnastics class and a heartshaped pizza- I think we have had heart pizza for the last 4 years! :)
