Happy Chinese New Year.

Today we read from Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragon Boats. I love this book, so if you don't have it, and you have some precious Chinese Children I highly suggest it. The book explains the Chinese holidays, craft ideas, recipes, and the fable that goes along with the holiday of why they celebrate it.
 
We made lanterns for the first time and had a blast. Most of them want to do double lantern's so I let them roll with that.

Valentine's Memories

 
I Love holidays and making memories with My Leggio Loves. I want my kids to look back when they are grown and have fond memories of growing up. We want to be intentional with our parenting, so they feel loved first by Christ Jesus, and then by us.
Today was a Valentines Day breakfast full of Love. I decorated the table, made pancakes with red sprinkles, heart candies, I put heart doilies with each child's name saying they are loved, then under their plate I put another doily with a special word. This word is something that God has given each one of them, and something that Joe and I see in them that is coming to fruition.
 
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!!!

Happy 13 Ethan!!!!!!

Oh WOW!!!! I can't believe I have a 13 year old. When I look at him I still see this adorable blonde haired blue eyed tot. Time goes by so ever quickly. I embrace and Love each day God blesses me with my children.
 
Ethan is a lover, he is a great big brother, smart at math, and an avid reader (the child is devouring books right now 19 or 20 chapter books since June), I Love being his mama!!!!!
 
My Prayer for you son is that you hold tightly to God's word and treasure it in your heart, walk the narrow way to him who created you. Find complete Joy in the giver of it and Love like Jesus.
 
All sweet boy wanted for his birthday was a desk (which mommy and daddy designed and daddy built for Ethan), and his friend Dylan to come play airsoft with him. It was a great day and celebration of him.
