A Whole Lotta Love

We began this year's *Valentine's Day Celebration* with a candlelight dinner at one of the kid's favorite joints ~ ChickFila. :-) 
Mr. Clown (name??) made the 3 younger cupids a balloon of their choice
For little man, a manly sword of course!
For the lil' ladies, hearts
but, not just any hearts..."Love Birds" in a heart!
This is the honest truth...I've never known a kid who LOVES to eat quite as much as my Owen. Well, okay so maybe he would tie with Uncle Kendall (my lil' brother). In fact, I have flashback memories of growing up nearly every day because of watching my O joyfully delight in meal time. And, yes...he can put down more food than his Dad...and does on a regular basis!
The Sundae Bar was the perfect Finale

The morning of Heart Day was a little hectic due to our 6:15 alarm clocks! However, I mustered up enough pre-coffee energy to bless my peeps with some heart pancakes.

And Daddy got each of his girls a chocolate Rose
And an hour or so later, round 2 of breakfast time
Ella Bella was in hog is her love language...well, that and lots & lots of affection
Ella with her rose from her Daddy
This girl is so full of Love...she truly has a gift for tenderness...that's why I love this picture ~ it shows how precious her heart is
And for Momma? Look what I found in my car when I went to take Bella to school...oh yeah ~ my favorite Barbee cookie ~ The Cinnamon Roll! ummmmmm

Last of the round up for the school morning as the O-Man. 
Ready to go with a teddy bear for his favorite friend of the feminine kind & some chocolate for his precious teachers who we adore
O's Cards this year
(look how good he can write his name!)

A little Valentine's Bingo playin'

Giddy Girl as she opens all are her love letters - or perhaps, gets sight of all the candy!
Three Amigo's 
Ella, Lauren & Caroline
Later into the evening, after a wild night of 5 activities...Daddy found one of the chocolate roses on our front room's couch
Looks like a lil' cupid couldn't contain himself...
But, because of the Day of Love, we showed a little mercy! ;-)
  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
