What does love mean?

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.

Love, chocolate, adoration? What’s not to love?

But, now that Katie and Matthew have filled our world, Valentine’s Day means so much more than that.

The material things just cease to matter.

What does love mean to children?

Katie had some things to say…

    That is the cutest pancake ever.

  7. Love the pancakes. Love the words. And love the sentiment.

    Love the shape of the strawberries and the pankake and you had a great idea of writing down the 'loves' of everybody to save it. To keep the memories how the kids were loving when they were little. I need to keep this in mind for my own family next year, hope you don't mind.

    Oh my goodness how CUTE is she!!! ??? And as the mom of 3 yr old twins myself I know that these little words out of those little minds are the BIG. STUFF. Love it! Pancake looks delish too!

    There is so much we can learn from kids! So sweet! Also? You made me feel like a terrible mom with those beautiful pancakes. ;)

    Isee blueberries and white kitty made the list, but "Katie loves noodles" MUST have been at the top of the list.

  14. The collection of loves is so sweet! It's a good reminder to see how they appreciate little things like "soup"! And the pancake is perfect. I thought I was doing a good job using food coloring in my waffles :)
