Happy Valentine's Day!

Loving my precious family this day and everyday....praying that they feel the Love of Jesus as they take each step today.

Chocolate chip muffins to start their day. {They were a healthy version}
My love brought me beautiful red roses. Thank you, Ron!
Lucey and I have been working on this little craft project. While she was sick, this kept us occupied.
She loves to cut! She is quite good with her scissors too. She is careful.
Our cardboard heart is ready.
We have three colors of tissue paper....red, dark pink, and light pink. I wonder how many tissue paper squares we cut for this endeavor?
Have you ever worked on a float or made other projects requiring pomping? We used the end of a pencil, wrapped our tissue paper square around the end and dipped our tissue in glue. Lucey loved doing this. I must be a little nuts...not remembering how time consuming this is. I think I made our cardboard heart a little too big. ;-)
It took a few days.....every so often we would sit and pomp. It was a blessed time with Lucey. She is such a talker and there is always so much to talk about. These times with her are so precious to me. Lucey and I love the song by Taylor Swift...."Never Grow Up." The words can choke me up. For Lucey--she just loves the tune and when she sings it...she sounds so cute.

"Oh darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up, just stay this little. Oh darling, don't you ever grow up. Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
The final project complete and hanging on our living room mirror. Whew...I don't know that I will ever do this project again but I will always remember my time with Lucey when I hang this up over the years to come.
Wishing you the love of Christ on this Valentine's Day! xoxo
