This was a special Valentine's Day because I now have 3 sweet family members to share the day with. It was also a lot of fun to celebrate the holiday with Hootie, who could enjoy it a lot more this year.
We started the day with a special breakfast - Nutella Croissants (we are HUGE Nutella fans around here).
The weather was gorgeous so Mookie sat in the doorway and watched his big sister play outside in the dirt (one of her favorite pastimes).
Then we got the house and ourselves ready for Daddy to come home and have a special family Valentine's dinner. Hootie wore her tutu and helped me pick out a pretty "ballerina dress" to wear for Daddy.
I'm still finding glitter all over the place, but she loved helping w/ the decorations.
At dinner we went around the table and told each other what we loved about each family member. The Mook mostly just smiled and gurgled, which we took as sounds of love. There are few things more precious than hearing a 3-yr-old tell you what she loves about her brother, her daddy, and you.
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us." - 1 John 3:16
