Here are some photos from our Valentines mini session. I know a lot of people don't like Valentine's day but I really enjoy it. I think it's fun, and not as stressful as some of the other holidays Sean gave me some beautiful Oki crafted blue earrings, I was so excited about it, anything Okinawa I love and have been spotting this type of jewelry for a while. My FootLoose family all spoiled me with lots of sweets and chocolate. Ely got all dolled up today for her Preschool class, they had a party today and she had a blast. We made her Valentines on Monday and had a family home evening on love and it has been such a game changer for us. When she is doing something wrong, we explain that is not how we show love and usually she stops. I'm dumbfounded sometimes, that is all we had to do, we have had some troubles and this is all it took, giving her reminders about how and how not to show love. It strengthens my testimony of the importance of family home evening and the lessons we give our children there. I'm not very good at giving the day to day lessons so setting aside a time to discuss any topic has been really beneficial and helpful to our family. It's helped me mother better this past week, and I think it has made her a little bit more appreciative. I will remind her why I'm doing certain things for her like taking her to gymnastics or park day and I say " I'm doing this because I love you". I'm super late at posting this Okinawa time, our Valentines day is almost over. My super talented friend Jamie from Jamie Pearson photography took these. I love how they turned out.
Sean's words " This is the most adorable photo of Ely I have ever seen"
My girl is growing up!
My big guy. He was happy for a few seconds and burst into tears.
How I had to get Koa to stop crying.
