Valentine's Day in the house!

I think it's so funny to look at facebook on Valentine's Day. I see status updates that are all like, "Happy valentine's day to my sweetie, who I'm so in love with I can't see straight!" and there are others who are like "Screw valentine's day and everyone who likes it."

While I'm not a die-hard gushy Valentine's Day obsessor (shouldn't we be showing love to others every day?) I think it's nice to acknowledge and celebrate the holiday with a little sweets, some yummy food and lots of love.

I love my husband and I love my family. So for today, I wanted to bake these easy strawberry cookies with the boys...

They stirred together

They sat in front of the oven the whole 12 minutes they baked. That's a long time for these busy body boys. "Look, Mom, they're getting bigger!" Jude would say.

Ezra made a big ole mess, and he loved it

Tonight is the infamous meatloaf night, so we'll see how that goes. I've got a recipe and the ingredients-I'm ready! 

Happy Valentine's Day, friends! Hope you all experience love and show love to those around you today. But let's not forget the greatest display of love of all time:

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
