Candy hearts and cards.




These are a few pictures taken in our home yesterday. The kids are off of school for today and Monday, and so they had their Valentine's Day parties yesterday. There is just something so fun about getting surprise monkey balloons from Grandma and Grandpa, packages with candy and new dvd's and of course, all those little cards and treats from your teachers and friends too.
I loved Valentine's Day when I was a kid. I still love to make and send cards- as I stated here yesterday. I asked Brock to choose a number between 1 and 44 from the comments left here and it turns out that Julie (wife,mom,nurse) gets to watch her mailbox for a little something from me. {Just email me your address: nitty.grittyjody@yahoo.com .}
We also couldn't help but have a little fun with Crew while he sat kicking and smiling and rolling over for the first time too, as the kids opened and looked their their goodies. I found a conversation heart that read "marry me" on it and took a picture of Crew sporting it on his onesie. (If you click on his photo you can read the little heart.) I'm sure his future wife will get a kick out of that picture someday. =)
You can see a few more valentine's day cards here or here.
I'd send you all a card if I had more time in my day. Or less laundry to do...today I'm already on my third load of the day- with two more to go. Happy Friday the 13th!

I enjoy reading all about your family, too.

Hi Jody,
I've never posted a comment on your page, but I always come to your blog. I love scrapbooking, and love all your crafty and fun ideas. Your valentines were super adorable! I'm heading to Africa in a few weeks for a year to do missions work, and unfortunetly won't be able to take a lot of scrappin' supplies. (which really stinks) But I'll take all I can, and keep on going!! Your story is filled with inspiration. Thanks for being you....it's a blessing to see how God has and continues to guide and care for you all. BTW...your kiddos are super adorable!!

What a great idea to put the candy heart on Crew!!! I know it seems like it will be a long, long time before he will meet and marry, but it goes much faster than you think. Be sure and hang on to that pic.
Always fun to see your sweet family and what's going on with you all. blessings
