Valentine surprises

I awoke at 7 am hearing the footsteps of Aidan coming into our bedroom closet to get a shoebox where he had stashed all his Valentine's loot. He quietly snuck downstairs and waited for all of us to come down. He has been working for days on his surprises and has continued to remind us NOT to look in the shoebox. He was so proud of himself.

He made me a jewelry box and a sweet card, and made Jason and Alayna cards and gifts as well.

As Alayna is a little young to get into the Valentine making adventure yet she decided how she can play cupid is to take her cute little hands and push our heads together until we kiss. So sweet. We remember when Aidan used to do that to us.

Jason and I had a nice date night out last night thanks to the WILD youth at our church. They babysat kids for donations for their mission trip.

As my love languages are quality time and acts of service, my sweet hubby is making dinner for us tonight and he, Aidan & Alayna surprised me with new hardware for our downstairs guest bathroom. Now some of you might say "love the hubby cooking dinner but, new bathroom fixtures, really?"

To defend my kind hubby, it really wasn't my Valentine's gift. However, I am thankful that my family was so thoughtful in taking the time to make our house look a little nicer.

I am blessed and very thankful to God for overflowing my life with love from Jason, Aidan & Alayna. They are the best Valentine's gift I could have ever hoped for.
