Valentine's Comes Early

We are leaving Saturday for a long awaited trip to Tennessee. First we are heading to my parents for a couple days, then Jeremy and I and Luke are heading to Gatlinburg for some quiet time, while the big kids hang out with Aunt Rea, Grandma, and Poppy. We will be returning to Virginia the next weekend. Since we will not be here for Valentine's Day, the kids and I had our own Valentine's Day yesterday, complete with heart shaped pancakes for breakfast with Daddy, heart sandwiches for lunch, and a fun Valentines treasure hunt. The treasure hunt turned out to be a hit, and as the kids followed the heart shaped clues to find their present, they were getting more and more excited. The present was just some dollar stuff from Target (markers, coloring books, memo pads, Valentines nail files, batman stickers, etc.), but they didn't care. Watching Kylie's face as Caitlyn read the clues was priceless! I will be sure to post lots of pictures when we return from our trip. Luke is teething, so please pray he isn't too fussy. Also, please pray for safety on the highway. There's a lot of crazies out there! :) Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty for my little Valentines!
