And we had the wisdom to head inside and eat after that :)
We laughed and ate and played and sang and shared our burdens and worshipped our God. It was truly magnificent.
Thanks for making it happen guys...

Jennifer Garner: I just don't know.... You really think I should fly all the way to San Francisco just to surprise him [her boyfriend] on Valentine's Day?
Ashton: It's Valentine's Day! You don't think you just DO!
And that's it. It's the one day that it's totally socially acceptable to stand in the parking lot of your husband's workplace (even in the drenching rain) bearing a sign that tells just how much you love him. Or to wear various shades of pink and purple and red from head to toe, because it looks like love, and that makes you smile. Or to spend a whole bunch of money on a dinner you can't afford, because you want to shower down scrumptious love on somebody else.
Or you make a whole lot of bread: And honey cinnamon butter:And wrap it up: And come up with a little saying that you are ever-so-proud of :) :
Because it's Valentine's Day! and you don't think you just DO...and that makes me ever-so-happy.

Jeremiah: Let's do something different for our shot.
Me: I don't know, Jeremiah. What do you mean different?
J: Like, jump up right here and I'll hold you.
Me: Maybe you haven't seen how tight my dress is...and are you sure you can catch me?
J: Are you seriously going to stand there and talk smack like I can't hold you up?? Have you seen me lately? Do you think your husband is weak? Just jump.
In all that talk, guess who forgot to take into account the length of her dress? And look who is totally oblivious and proud of himself :)
Our girls went to Dothan this weekend for some adventures on the farm, while I went away with a few friends, and Jeremiah...worked (bless his heart). However, I came home around lunch yesterday and we had the entire afternoon and night to just hang out together sans les enfants!
It's not like we don't ever get babysitters, but when we do, there is always something specific planned. Not yesterday. It's hard to explain how fun it was to just be in the house together, eat lunch and not dodge food being thrown by the Dapples, or answer Pace's questions about how the world works. We went to a movie, just because we could. And then, while the entire nation watched the Saints win the Super Bowl, we decided to skip the party we were supposed to attend and go somewhere for a quiet dinner...even dessert. When he left for work this morning, we were both sad. It felt just a little bit like when we were first married and I cried every time he walked out the door. Sometimes, it's good to be reminded that I don't just live with my husband, I live with my best friend. Who else can make me laugh like picture 2?? :)
