St. Valentine's Day in the Morning

Heavenly Father, we ask You to guide our children in the choice of spouse.
Don't let them be carried away by false charms or be fascinated by mere outward glamour, but guide their minds to look beneath and beyond all external attractiveness for the deeper things which alone are worth while. And especially let the choice be of one who is a fervent Catholic, true in thought and word and deed to those ideals which are Yours especially the value of their purity. Dear Father of us all, give Your guiding help to our children, who are Your children too. We'll be letting them go soon, but please, don't ever let our children go from You. Amen.

Soft pink striped bear from Carters.
Wilton Heart Candy Picks from Hobby Lobby last year. They are supposed to decorate cupcakes, but I used them with the chocolate muffins Sean picked up for the kids this morning.

We'll be back later on with our Pinning it down activity for the day... chocolate covered Rice Krispie treats! Whoo hoo!

Happy feast of St. Valentine!
