Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Valentine's Day

We had a great Valentine's Day.  The boys received balloons and homemade fruit snacks (which tasted terrible). I found the pin on pinterest and thought I would give it a shot but she didn't put that they taste terrible.
At the beginning of February the boys and I created a Valentine box to put notes and special things in until Valentine's. This was a big hit with Austin. One of his biggest love languages is affirmation so he loved seeing what was written about him/for him each day. Miller liked it too but not as much as Austin. I haven't quite figured out his love language yet. =)
The balloons were a big hit though.  I look at them as the gift that keeps on giving because my boys will play with these for days.

My funny valentines
Miller woke up earlier than Austin from his nap so we had a little quality time together. IMG_5939IMG_5936 IMG_5935
My sweet husband came home from work, took the boys with him to the grocery store, and then came home to cook me a delicious dinner. I think him taking the boys to the grocery store for 20 minutes of quiet was the best gift. I read by myself and it was perfect.  The dinner was delicious as well.  I have always said that if David had more free time I think he could be a great cook.  He unfortunately doesn't have any free time.
 Making my v-day dinner!
David's valentine gift was homemade banana pudding.  This is his favorite dessert so he loved it.  We are also celebrating this Saturday night with a date out.

I felt very blessed this Valentine's Day to be surrounded by 3 boys who love me.
