This year's Valentine's Day was fun...a little stressful, since I tried to be super-mom/wife/daughter. I put a little too much on my plate, but end of the day I loved it all and probably would have done it again. Our day started off by Jacob taking baby so I could sleep in, what a guy! Then I got up and made some yummy breakfast: homemade hot chocolate, pop-tarts cut into hearts and chocolate waffles...yes chocolate waffles. Jacob loves what I call dessert, for breakfast. Then we went to church and heard a great message.
The rest of the afternoon was pretty relaxing, spending time with my boys. For dinner Jacob and I made lasagna, garlic bread and Lemony Love Potion to drink. Dessert I have to say was amaaazing! Fudge Lovers' Strawberry Truffle Cake and chocolate covered strawberries. Yummy! We ended our day watching How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, love that movie :)
Jacob and I had a date night the day before Valentine's Day, thought there may not be as many people out (long waits and crowded). We had dinner at HuHot a Mongolian grill, it was delicious and fun. Then we went to the movie Valentine's Day, which wasn't too sappy and fairly funny
Well, the movie actually got me thinking about something that I've had on my mind for a while. At the MOMs group that I've been going to at my church, we've had some discussions about our world now days and how different it is, and how dramatically it's changing (for the worse). It use to be that faith was intertwined and present in many aspects of life (e.g. school, government). Divorce, affairs, and homosexuality use to be social taboos. And now all these things are not only common, but they're in our face everywhere and is even in our entertainment. I did like the movie, but I was just thinking about this a lot during it. Being a parent is changing my view of the world greatly, I'm realizing how difficult it will be to raise a family with Christian values. This phrase couldn't mean more to me than it does now, we are in the world but not of the world.
To end on a happy note, I had a wonderful Valentine's day and need to get going to enjoy time with Jacob, now that Caleb is asleep. (cute pictures of him are on their way)
