What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Pal 'O Mine



32 hearts taped to a mirror, each holding another happy bit of love

Bits of paper and glue, drawings and haphazardly folded "envelopes" shoved into my fists over twenty times in a day.

Butterflies and snails with lollipops (you can eat WITHOUT asking first!!!) sitting patiently at the table for the children to come down for breakfast.

Heart shaped cheese on a plate of Papa-made breakast.

Everyone. Wearing. Red.



No presents. No poems. No flowers. Just us, together.

That was our Valentine's Day.

Resting from the day before:

when we celebrated our love in a different way....


The old geezer turned 32 this past weekend.

Pretty handsome for an OLD guy...wouldn't ya say?

As is customary with old fogies all set in their ways: the man requested a white cake with peanut butter frosting. Since he has requested this cake EVERY year since we've been married, I'm running out of ways to decorate the dumb thing! But, tasted good anyway.

Looks good too... the cake I mean. I love chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting myself. We celebrated Emily's 4th on the 15th and her daddy's was on the 16th so he shared her cake.
