Happy Valentine’s Day!

Nora made a beautiful Valentine this morning in her therapy session in preparation for her FIRST Valentine’s Day! It was SOOO cute to see her react to a little heart sticker on her fingertip! All these little things that I never would have thought of that are so wonderful for her! Happy Valentine’s from Nornor!

There certainly is an app for everything. This is the design that Gavin, my FUNNY Valentine came up with. We were laughing so hard together as we created this. I printed them out for him to pass out to his classmates as I also did for Greta’s. If this doesn’t confirm that we’re a little strange over here, I’m not sure what will. I keep laughing every time I look at this imagining the parents of a classmate innocently perusing through their child’s Valentines only to be confronted with this darling aberration! “(Gasp!) WHO IS GAVIN??!!” Happy Valentine’s Day from Gavin!

And lastly, but not leastly, happy Valentine’s Day from Greta and Piggy Smalls. Greta always has beautiful Valentines. It looks like little sister Nora will follow suit!

Beth More (@BethMooreLPM) tweeted the other day, “I don’t know if red birds are any redder in the winter or if it’s the contrast against the gray. I’ve seen a similar phenomenon with God. In the bleakest seasons when all seems dying, things you’d taken for granted can suddenly take an other-worldly color.Take it personally.”

Why, yes I will!
