On St. Valentine's Day

~ A Gift of Meals ~

Valentine Cookies, Banana Bread, Chicken Enchiladas, Vegetable Lasagna, 
Green Enchiladas, and Turkish Spinach and Lentil Soup all made
 by a local Little Flowers Group (as a service project) for our family!   
This was such a wonderful surprise and couldn't have come at a better time.  
Thank you girls!!!  I can't tell you how very much it was appreciated!

~ Fruit Smoothies ~

A fun, yet fairly healthy, snack for my recovering children.  
(We still have lots of coughing around here, and a somewhat congested baby. 
 Please pray that she gets better quickly and doesn't get any worse...)

~ Valentine Treats ~

The kids made a batch of Valentine Dots as a gift for their Dad 
and I made little bags of White Chocolate Pop Corn (sprinkled with M&M's and XO's) for eveyone. 

~ Valentine's Day Picture Books ~

~ Roses ~ 

 Who needs real flowers when we have our beautiful little "Rose?"

However coffee is always greatly appreciated! 
Thank you Honey! 

"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."  ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Hope you all had a lovely St. Valentine's Day! 


  1. It looks like you had a lovely Valentine's Day - thank you for sharing it with us.

  2. That is so wonderful! The LF did somethigng like that for us once, but I wasn't home so I didn't know who to thank! I kept asking the people at home who it was but they just kept saying little flowers. Sigh.
    Looks like you had a lovely day and I pray you all will get better soon. Hubby was real sick too. :(

  3. She is soooo sweet! And getting so big! Happy 2 month birthday baby Rose! We're praying for her.

  4. Sounds like sickness is raging everywhere! Will keep you in our prayers. Glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

  5. Sending up prayers for your little Rose, that she doesn't get worse and for the rest of you to recover quickly. I'm so sorry to hear that you all were sick.

    May God bless you and Happy Shrove Tuesday!
