Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Photos from Valentine's Day

Photos from Valentine's Day

Confession: I used to hate Valentine's Day.  I called it Single's Awareness Day.  It was the day everyone started dating, got engaged, or was married.  My brother was one who was engaged on Valentine's Day.  Now, I LOVE it.  I love showing Drew and Charis how much I love them.  Here are some photos from February 14, 2013.

Attempted making Os and Exes out of bacon.
Word of advice: Don't.  Only one X survived, and
none of the Os did.  Next time, the bacon
is going on strips into the oven.
Drew had hot chocolate, and I had tea.  

I made waffles.  When Drew and I were dating, I had him over at my
parents house for breakfast around Valentine's Day.  I asked him, "What's
your favorite breakfast food?"  "Waffles with ice cream on top," was
his answer.  I bought a waffle maker and made waffles, but did not put ice
cream on top.  Now, I try to make waffles every Valentine's Day.
Part of the Drew's Valentine's Day gift from Charis.
Messy feet.  Glad we did this in the bathroom.
Charis opening her gift.  I bought a brand new
Melissa & Doug Princess Elise Magnietic Dress-Up Set at our local thrift store for $3.

Since Valentine's Day is about love, I thought I'd post 1 Corinthians 13:
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.  When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.  For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.   
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Do you enjoy Valentine's Day?
