Valentine's Dates

So, Chris and I have never been very big on Vlentine's Day. It just seems it is a day where everything costs more to be romantic. Kinda weird.

I think we started a new tradition. We decided to do Kid Date Night for Valentine's Day. Hannah and Daddy went out on a date and Justus and I went out on a date.

Hannah put on a special Valentine's Day outfit and I let her wear one of my necklaces. She was feeling so pretty for her date with Daddy!
Chris made Hannah's date very special.
He came home with a single rose for her that he put in a vase and in her room for her to see every day. Then he took her to get her fingernails painted.Then they met up with me and Justus at McDonalds for an ice cream.

Mine and Justus' date was not quite as extravagant. I took Justus to the mall and let him pick where he wanted to eat at the food court. He chose Chick Fil A. Then we went to the play area and he got to play there for a little while.

Finally, we met up with Chris and Hannah at McDonald's for an ice cream.

Do you know this guy?

He is Dan Uggla.
He is the new 2nd baseman for the Atlanta Braves.
He is from near where we live.
He was at a local gym and Justus got a baseball signed and..
..got his pictures taken with him.
It was kinda fun!

Our Sunday Pictures

We had one that had a fever yesterday.
I took everyone's temperature before worship and NO ONE had one.
Hannah still stayed in since she was not 24 hours fever free.Well, before evening service, we did the same thing and guess what... a certain little boy did have one!
Urgggggg! Very Frustrating.All day, though, everyone was very happy!
Talk about frustrating when you have 2 children that are ready to go and acting great but you have to tell them to stop because they have a fever.
I am really not a great person with sickness...
I just want everything back to normal.
Please. Please. NORMAL!

Saturday's Sign

When you see a Do Not Enter sign you should think of..

Proverbs 4:14-15

Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.

Double Dating!

Double Dating is fun.
Double Dating is needed.
Adult conver-sation with close friends.
No inter-ruptions by the little ones.

Chris and Super John went in together on some Lipscomb basketball tickets and they let me and Julie tag along for the biggest game of the season. The Battle of the Boulevard. It was SO fun. We will definitely have to plan another double date with them soon!

Shh! Babies are Sleeping!

Oh - you don't have to tell me..
I know they are not babies for real, but they are mine and Chris' babies and that will always be the case. No more discussion about it! :-)

Every night before I go to bed I go into Hannah's and Justus' room and I look at them, kiss their cheek, and sometimes straighten them up or cover them up. Just about every night I say that I wish I had a picture of them sleeping because I love looking at their peaceful sleeping faces so much.

Well, last week I decided I would do just that and hope it didn't wake them up.

It didn't.
And I'm glad I did it.
How Sweet They Are.

Muffins with Moms

During the week at school that we were talking about the letter M, the teachers invited all of us Mom's to a little "breakfast" called Muffins with Moms. It was so fun. Hannah got to paint my hand yellow and make handprints all over the paper and then she used her brown fingerprints to make it a beautiful sunflower. I loved it.

I am enjoying more and more the girl time I get with Hannah. She is so much fun and I hope we will be able to stay close and the older years come along....

I'm praying about that now...
Never too early to start, I say.

Prayer Progression

At school some classes sing a little song for their prayer before they eat lunch. It goes like this...

God our Father
God our Father
Once again
Once again
We bow our heads and thank you
We bow our heads and thank you
In Jesus Name
A------ men

Justus has heard this plenty and Hannah knows it well. Justus loves to have the opportunity to pray and will always say that he wants to. We, of course, always let him, even when we have speaking jibberish. Here is how the progression of the prayer has gone since he "learned" this song.

God our Father

God our Father
God our Father
Jesus Name

Once again
Once again
Once again
Once again
Once again
Once again
Once again
Once again
In Jesus Name

Currently: (no clue how we got to this)
Once again
Once again
Thank you and bye bye
In Jesus Name

Love It!

Our Sunday Pictures

I know these are blurry but ....
I was sick and didn't go to worship Sunday morning.
I left the camera at school on Thursday and had not been back to pick it up.
Chris was WONDERFUL and took these with his phone so we wouldn't miss a week!

OH well. This is what Sunday pictures are all about - remembering each week - no matter what! :-)
