Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Daniel and I will be chatting about faith, food, and our book this afternoon on the radio for the Around the Table Radio Show tomorrow at 3pm (central time). You will probably be able to tell that it’s our first time on the radio, but we did have fun talking about food. You can listen in (690 AM in NOLA and 1380AM in Baton Rouge) or listen online when it airs it you’re outside of the greater New Orleans area like we are. But since you likely have better things to do than to plan your whole day around hearing us ramble on about St. Raymond Nonnatus, you can always listen to the podcast when it goes up tomorrow or Saturday (just search for Around the Table podcast in iTunes).
In other news, Baby Gwen’s hair is the 8th wonder of the world. What do I DO with it?
And after a three month hiatus due to travel, illness, car accidents (sheesh!) we’re finally back on the cloth diaper wagon. But don’t be too impressed. I only went back to them out of desperation because we were all out of disposables and the idea of going to the grocery store to buy more with three kids in tow makes me want to cry.
(Diapers, baby hair…this post really has you at the edge of your seat, doesn’t it?)
Let’s more on to something more exciting! The Edel Gathering has SOLD OUT. Wow! I cannot wait for July!
And if this doesn’t look exciting, I just don’t know what to tell you:
(Devoted Daddy creating a Goblin King Cake per request of Benjamin for his fifth birthday party, Hobbit style. It deserves it’s own post, coming soon!)
(Lovely party attendees: Ooma, Lucy, Gwen, and Cousin Vivienne!)
The Quotable Lucy (at 2 years):
“I got a runny nose, so I need some ice cream to make it ALL better.” Little gal is either very confused about home remedies for colds or already understands that ice cream solves most problems in life.

And this commercial doesn’t have anything to do with romantic love, but it will make a grown man cry.
We are having a little Family Fun Night for Valentine’s Day. Planning on getting Gluten-Free Pizza making this Flourless Chocolate Cake from the Modern Mrs. Darcy and having a family movie night watching The Princess Bride!
Wearing red lipstick is about as Valentine-sy as it’s gonna get around here today!
Do you have any fancy plans for Valentine’s Day? Daniel and I have never really celebrated it as a romantic extravaganza, but maybe you’ll inspire us for next year!
