A little late in posting about it, but we did have a jolly valentine's day!
Here are the kids with the valentines they made for their cousins.
We studied 1 Corinthians 13 during the week and I had them write one attribute of love from the chapter on the back of each valentine: "Love is kind", "Love is not easily angered", etc. (In Dominique's case, she traced it.)
Then on Thursday, we had a valentine's party at Grandma Carol's house. It is a blessing in our family to have a built-in homeschool support group!
Here are the girls decorating valentines at Grandma's house, and the boys are in the background at the other table.
Many more failed attempts at getting a decent picture of Moriah and Israel together!
This is a typical sample.....
I did eventually get this one where they were actually at least looking the same direction!!!
At this age, though, they are much easier to photograph alone!
Israel was so happy to be walking around!
Mom had the idea to have a "crazy hat" picture of all the kids together, so we all brought silly hats for them to wear. :)
And with crazy hats, you have to do some crazy faces too, right?
Then we feasted on many, many homemade heart-shaped pizzas, heart-shaped cookies, cupcakes with hearts on them, and a bunch of other stuff!
A picture of each of the valentine couples:
Aaron and Suzy
Fabio and Elizabeth
Scott and Amanda
Mom and Jack
And lastly, a first belly shot of this pregnancy. This was almost a week ago, at 8 weeks and 2 days along. Do you think it's twins? Or maybe just too much pizza??
