To each of you who are thinking of writing YOUR love story...PLEASE DO...and leave me a comment, so I can hop over to your blog and read it! =)
I wrote these quotes this morning:
"Love stories are like snowflakes...each one is original and OH. SO. BEAUTIFUL." ~Heather~
"Love stories are like M&M's ...only they melt in your HEART, and not in your hand!" ~Heather~
My Phillip is SO happy that I wrote out our love story! For it was FUN memories for us...and Great for our children to get to hear some of the details of how God brought us together. We make blog books of some of my blog so our love story will soon be in a book for our children to keep. =) (My blog is like my life journal! Although I keep a personal journal too. =)
I LOVED writing it down too, but after spending hours on the computer over the weekend getting each part of our love story posted, I have hardly had time to be on the computer since Monday evening.
Here's a little of what I've been doing!
~Monday night I made these heart shaped cinnamon rolls. They were so FUN and yummy!
Here's what I did. I just made my Tried and true "Perfect Sunday dinner roll recipe" and then just used this method for rolling them into hearts!
Divide the dough into 2 parts and not 4. I took one part of the dough and rolled it into a rectangular and put butter, cinnamon and sugar on it. Starting at one of the LONG ends, I rolled it up HALF way (Jelly roll style) then went to the other side and rolled it up so that I had 2 rolls that MET IN THE MIDDLE. Laying there it looked like an old-fashioned scroll. I used a pizza cutter to cut my 1" cinnamon rolls then when I laid them down on my pan, I just pulled the bottom of the cinnamon roll down and PINCHED it between my fingers to form a heart! Then I covered them well and let them rise in the 'fridge overnight. =)~
Just look into those adorable blue eyes and see if YOU could have said "No!" =)~
~It's the restaurant that you see on the right side of this picture. I took this night shot from our roof.~
These restaurants here are all about atmosphere and DON'T GET IN A HURRY! It took quite awhile before they even took our order, and before it arrived so we could eat, etc.
So, we did have to laugh that the people in the restaurant probably were thinking, "Every time I look at their table they are missing yet ANOTHER child." =) For, first Elijah fell asleep, then Kimberly rocked Mary to sleep on her lap, then later Noah asked to join Elijah on the floor and fell sound asleep. We ordered a dessert to share and while we were waiting for it to arrive Sarah was asking if SHE could join the boys for she was SLEEPY! (While I'm typing this out for my blog, I'm saying it out-loud. Noah just heard me say about us "ordering dessert" and shrieked, "You did?! That's NOT fair! =)
Our dessert was a good as it looks...no, it was better! =) We walked home at nearly midnight...carrying 3 sleeping children.~
a sweet poem inside too.~
