I've lost that lovin' feelin'

Hopefully you haven't...but let me just tell you...PMS and Valentines Day do NOT belong in the same week. My poor husband. I've been a beast. His Valentine card actually read "I love you...despite what my mood swings may indicate." I know. I'm pathetic. And obviously a few other ladies are too cause that's exactly what the card said. Seems Hallmark has added a few menopausal employees. I did try to recover by getting him his favorite cream cake. Seems he's a sucker for kiss ups cause he forgot all about my dysphoric disorder and went right on to romancing his cake.

it seems all is fair in love and cake

The kids and I spent this day of love baking Red Velvet cupcakes...and thinking about the Greatest Love one could experience.

Dad always remembers his girl Maggie when buying flowers.

And the woman that needs an exorcism mom...lover of tulips.

On Thursday we met with our Homeschool Tutorial group for the Elementary Valentine bowling party. So fun. This group is a God send. We sported sassy bowling shoes and rocked out to Leeland and David Crowder Band. In a bowling alley. Priceless.

There was also a certain Valentine Box contest that we participated in. Remember it? I nearly broke out into hives trying to help my kids decorate these things...finally, I gave in to the fact that I was gonna let them do their own thing and not help unless asked. This is so hard for a recovering perfectionist to do...but not being crafty and all made it much easier. Can you be a perfectionist and be crafty? I'm thinking no.

Aidan was a minimalist. Thank God.

Maggie covered hers with rose petals that formed a cross. Actually there was a glue gun involved so I helped her...and I have the wounds to prove it. Yes, I realize it resembles an arrangement on a casket. She didn't though...and hopefully she won't read my blog till she's 30...or at least too old to hold a grudge against me. Each of them wanted to put scripture on their boxes....Maggie added her own little reminder about love. I heart her.

And just so you know...I really do love and adore my husband...despite what my mood swings may indicate.

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
