Addie's First Valentine's Day!

"Above all else, guard your HEART, for it is the wellspring of life..." Proverbs 4:23

We have had a wonderful first Valentine's Day weekend with Addie! We started out the weekend with a family day at home on Friday because of record breaking snow fall. When we woke up on Thursday morning, this is what we saw...

The snow continued to fall all day Thursday. We had a field trip at school planned for that day and we still had to go! It was crazy! We took the picture above at 9 pm on Thursday night looking out our front door. Unbelievable! :-) It was so much fun to have an extra day at home on Friday all together.
So, a little background info......Brandon and I have never celebrated Valentine's Day as a couple. From the very beginning (almost 13 years ago!) we felt like we should treat every day like V's day and do sweet things for eachother. I must say he does an amazing job of making me feel loved all year long. So get this. For the first time ever for V's day, he decided over a week ago to have flowers delivered to me at work Friday. AND, our life group leaders offered to watch Addie so that we could go on a special date. B made reservations at Chamberlain's Fish Market! Well, as you know, we had no school Friday, so no flowers...and poor Anne got sick, so she couldn't watch Addie. Dang! Best laid plans....
So, we decided we needed to get out of the house. We took Addie and all three of us went to Macaroni Grill. We had a wonderful dinner and of course we enjoyed having our little peanut with us to celebrate! We have had such a year full of LOVE having her, that it was special to eat together. She enjoyed cheerios while we enjoyed pasta! Then, in usual Harmon-fashion, we stopped through McDonald's for a chocolate dipped ice cream cone on the way home. Oh, and wait! B did the grocery shopping yesterday and brought home tulips for I DID still get flowers for V's day! Thanks Brandon for making it special for both Addie and me. WE love you!
Now for a few Valentine's Day pictures of our little love.....

Thank you to ALL of our sweet friends and family who sent Addie cards and goodies for Valentine's Day! She loves them all and she loves YOU! We are enjoying reading the books, wearing the pj's, sporting the outfits, wearing the bows, and growing frogs into princes....and for a long time, that's all the "boy" she'll need! Happy Valentine's Day!
ps--keep reading for another new post I made today! :-)
