HAPPY DAY O’ LOVE!!
Such a fun day for us. The boys woke up way to early but I couldn’t send them back to bed, it being a holiday and all, so up I got. Dinosaur pancakes with sprinkles were made
After breakfast we headed out to deliver our Valentine’s, the boys called them “heart-attacks.” I just cut paper hearts out of some card stock and asked the boys what they loved about each of their grandparents and wrote it down on the hearts, they invaded the house running around yelling “We’re giving you a heart attack” taping the hearts to the walls furniture or whatever they wanted to tape them to. We also made some super yummy Valentine cookies (recipe found here) to hand out to our loves.
I love this “heart-attack” idea, the boys had such a good time coming up with fun things they loved about each person, like “I love Gammy because she puts puzzles together with me” and “I love Nannah because she lets me feed the chickens.” New Carlisle Valenine’s Day tradition started!
It rained on us all day here so any plans of going to the park or playing outside were changed to an impromptu Goodwill trip and them home for soup and naps…I was okay with the change.
My sweet Valentine brought me a dozen red roses which finally gave me the opportunity to put together this cute little Mason jar decorating kit I picked up months ago at Goodwill for one dollar!
Dear Mr. Carlisle,
We’ll celebrate 8 years of marriage this year and truly they are getting better and better! I know that sounds cliche but it’s true. We’ve had a mostly easy relationship, we’re both very easy going people who pretty much hate drama and conflict. That being said I think last year was our hardest year yet. We had some major blow outs. I was disappointed, I was angry, you felt disrespected and unloved. It was rough! I think because we don’t argue over the little things on a daily basis when there were some big issues to deal with we were unable to navigate the new rough waters. But for the grace of God we did it, and came out on the other side stronger in our marriage and both stronger in our relationship with Jesus! We’re back to our silly, fun loving, perfume bottles in my pillowcase selves and I couldn’t be happier!! I love you babe and thank God for making you especially for me!!
