Its back to tank tops and sundresses for us now…
...but we did our "winter thing" in honor of Valentines day.
We whipped up some
heart-shaped cinnamon almond French toast for breakfast.
Nothing warms my heart more than a table full of my chattering pajama-clad loves.
Then it was off to the ice-rink bundled in the only warm clothes we own.
Literally, we were scraping to find a sweatshirt and long-sleeved clothes for everyone.
Good thing the rink was barely cool enough to maintain the ice. And by maintain, I mean….there was a half inch of standing water on top of the ice.
We just don't "do" cold here in Thailand.
This resulted in some very soggy bottoms after spills.
And, I knew that one day my obsession with matchy-matchy would pay off.
Today was that day!
When we arrived, we were told that their Valentine special was "Buy one get one free" when you bring a friend.
Deal for the 6 skating Smiths!!
But then, we found out that if you dress to match someone, you get the second hour FREE!
Guess who just happened to be sporting matching outfits!?!?
Evie who has been infatuated with the movie Frozen was living a dream to be on ice! Think she may have found "her thing". Sorry babe…if your mommy any say in it, we will never be living somewhere cold again:)
So wish this girl could be watching the Olympics - she'd be smitten! What a bummer to not have coverage here!
Valentines Day forever after holds special significance to us because of her little heart! Loved watching her so full of life today!
Little loves of my life. Full hands. Full heart. Blessed!

And then my Valentine whisk me away for a romantic night out…..but he's not as keen to have his picture taken :) So here's an oldie but a goodie. Love this guy more each day!
