Valentines Day

My Facebook status:

1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

My husband didn’t get me anything for Valentines Day.  Not even a card.  Because I asked him not to and that is how much he loves me.  I don’t need that stuff to know he loves me.  We are those people.  Once I got flowers delivered on Valentines Day and yep, it was awesome.  We can be like that too.  We are flexible.  Once, I got diamond earrings.  That was a good one.

Princess’s middle school play opens today and for our most romantic Valentines date, Bill is taking me to the slightly off-Broadway version of High School Musical Jr.  I had a sneak preview this afternoon, and was amazed at the talent.  I am really looking forward to seeing it again tonight.  And tomorrow night.  And Saturday night.  And I will love every single minute of it.  This afternoon, I choked back tears.  How has she grown up so quickly?

So, I figured I better make up a special supper and decided to try a new Pinterest chicken find:  Sesame Chicken. It was so-so.  The sauce was too runny.  I liked the flavor, though, so I might work on it a little until I get it just right. 


I served it with broccoli and also corn because this is what Curly thinks of even the smell and thought of broccoli:



The kids all gave it a shrug as in nothing special, but I see potential.

I also made Apple Crisp for Bill but he wont eat it because his co-worker, who makes the world’s greatest apple pie, gave him two pieces of pie at work today.  Score one for her. 

Curly just informed Bill that even when two people agree to not buy any gifts for Valentines, you do it anyway.  This is my FB status applied to real life, people.   She spoke the truth about our no action. 

As her gift for Valentines to me, she plans to clean my microwave while we are at the play.   Love in Action.

I love my husband.  I love our kids.  Every.  Single.  Moment.  Of.  Every.  Single.  Day.

    Love it!!! BJ agrees with Curly’s face and reaction to broccoli. Happy Valentine’s Day to all the Pieper’s and good luck to Princess and the rest of the cast and crew during their performances this weekend.
