St. Valentine's Day Recap

No...still haven't had the baby.  We've just been keeping busy with school and celebrating Valentine's Day.  I'm definitely running a little low in the energy and enthusiasm department.  But, not to worry.  The children more than make up for anything I lack!

I did make some festive heart shaped cinnamon rolls which were super easy...just my speed these days!

A little pink smoothie to add some nutritional value to breakfast!
A dear friend called to ask if they could stop by to drop off some Valentine's and treats for the children.  I'm glad she gave me a little heads up.  It gave us time to whip up this Valentine for their family that I found over at Catholic Icing.

It's hard to read in this picture, but John 3:16 is written through the word Valentine which is the true definition of love!
The children had scavenger hunts, played games, exchanged Valentines, and ate so much sugar I though that they might burst!

Madeline helped make these peanut butter blossom cookies which turned out amazing!  We typically make these at Christmas with Hershey's kisses in the middle, but in honor of St. Valentine, we used Dove chocolates instead.  The kids had a heck of a time keeping their hands off to let the chocolate firm up!

Grandma and Grandpa Kraft sent them cards with a some money to buy themselves a Valentine treat. They decided to pool their resources to purchase a Dairy Queen ice cream cake.  Have you priced those things out lately?  Man, are they pricey!

Thanks grandma and grandpa!  And there is still more for dessert tonight!
I have an appointment with my OB tomorrow afternoon.  The plan, for now, is that I will be induced on Tuesday morning.  Of course, that is all dependent upon there being room for me since it is a purely elective induction.  If Tuesday doesn't work out, then we'll shoot for Thursday.  Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.  I'll keep you posted!

God Bless!
