THREE posts this year?

Holy wow. So in doing a little research for work, I logged onto my blog and realized I've only posted THREE times this year. T.H.R.E.E. I'm ashamed. The purpose of this blog is to print it into a book to remind me and my kiddos of their "growing up" years. They've done QUITE  bit of growing this year, but time has definitely gotten away from me. I am committing my self to a rather lengthy post this weekend to catch us all up on the LaPierre happenings. And there have been A LOT of happenings. Stay tuned.

Valentine's Day 2012

Valentine's Day -- in my humble opinion -- is a commercial holiday where retailers want you to buy expensive cards, chocolate, gifts, flowers, dinner, wine, etc...etc...

I'm NOT against a day showing love... I just think that I should be doing the very best I can to show/tell my loved ones how I feel every day.

So Chris and I do small things for the kids, like putting love notes on their doors while they're sleeping:

(Kennedy's door)

(Brady's door)

...and they each got a sweet shirt to wear today. They had heart-shaped cinnamon rolls, school parties, and ate candy and goodies until they had upset tummies.

(Kennedy and his Valentine, Aubrey)

(Kennedy and Kaitlin)


As for me and Chris --- we had an uneventful evening. We wrote each other love notes and lounged on the couch an watched TV. Pure bliss. :)

Mommy: "We're going to Brookshires."

Brady: "Ewwww. I don't like boogers."

HAHAHAHAHAAA! The sad thing is -- he picks his nose ALL the time.... so I know that's not exactly true. ;)

Tonight, we went to Raising Cane's for dinner. Chris is out of town and when he's gone -- the easiest dinner plan is the BEST dinner plan.

Kennedy insisted on saying the blessing. I was impressed.

Her prayer: "Dear God. Thank you for this wonderful -- WON-DER-FUL day. Thank you for my school and that I can go learn things there. Thank you that I have food and water and a home. Amen."

What an impressive prayer.

Of course anything that big sister does, Brady must follow. So he asked to pray.

"Dear Jesus. Thank you for this day. And thank you for God's lunch. Amen."
