{February Foodfest} Valentine's Edition

Happy Valentine's Day!

In honor of Valentine's Day, I cooked breakfast for my two Valentines.

This may not seem like a big deal, but in order to stay sane, this wife and mama does cold breakfast during the week.  Read: yogurt, granola, fruit, and toast though I do always have a loaf of banana, pumpkin, lemon, sour cream maple, or other type of breakfast-y bread in the fridge which can be heated up in the microwave if anyone is feeling the need for a "hot breakfast." Oh and instant oatmeal is an option too.  I am just not a morning person and need my cup of coffee before I can handle demands or conversation of any kind.  My boys wake up ravenous on most days, so a Continental Breakfast works for all.  I stumble around the kitchen pouring Seth's granola into his yogurt as Taylor makes coffee as fast as humanly possible.

This morning I got up at the usual 7 am and amazingly had time to put together a breakfast taco for Taylor and Nutella Puff Pastry Treats for all before the boys asked for a morsel of food, and all this before my cup of coffee.

It was a Valentine's Day Miracle.  

My cute Valentines! I love you to pieces!

Unsure about his Nutella treat

Finally made his way to the filling - jackpot!

I think he liked it...

Valentine's Day "John John"

He kept repeating, "John John" as he would look down or grab part of his outfit.
I am going to be sad once he turns two and is too old to wear them anymore!

But God demonstrates His own LOVE for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ DIED for us.
Romans 5:8

I can't think of a better example of love than that - my prayer is that whether or not you have an earthly Valentine this year, that you would know the love of the Father for YOU.  

Happy Valentine's Day!
