I would rather have eyes that cannot see; ears that cannot hear; lips that cannot speak, than a heart that can not love. - Robert Tizon

Happy Valentine's Day!  Great-Grandmother commented to me today that her country does not have Valentine's Day...and commenced to go down the very long list of other Saints Days they do celebrate.  Too bad...Valentine's Day is a nice day to tell people they are appreciated.  My father hates most holidays...because he says they were invented by Hallmark...just to sell more cards...and make more money.
We did not spend any money...we did celebrate a saint (even though he might not have been orthodox)...and the kids got to say and hear "I love you!" many times over...here is our day of hearts!

Translation:  Happy Valentine's Day.  To:KK(my son). I will always love you.  Love Anna (his big sister)

  1. Hurray! You all did it....cut out cookies. They look pretty and so yummy! Glad you had a great Valentine's Day.

    1. I still was nervous to put on the fancy toppings...we just did sprinkled sugar. :) Getting closer though...to a properly sugar coated cookie
