Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Sunday Snapshot...Special Time with My Handsome Boy

It all started with these...
Personalized "Date Cards" taped to the kids' bathroom mirror one morning
I knew the exact moment they discovered them because I heard STOMP STOMP STOMP, whisper whisper whisper, STOMP STOMP STOMP...

Later I found out they'd been running back and forth in search of a pen to circle their response, ha!
These have been proudly displayed on their bedroom window ever since  =)

  My adorable date
It was such a beautiful, sunny day, and it felt wonderful to be going out without heavy coats for a change

And just where were we headed? ? ?
a fancy restaurant, of course!
I've learned over the years that it is true- the way to a man's heart is through his stomach; boys associate a good time with FOOD!
And this boy is no exception!

Earlier in the week, in anticipation of our big date, Caleb had told me he thought we should go to a place that was romantic, with candles, like an 'EE-talian' restaurant.  I died on the inside, so, so funny!  I wonder if his charming, adorable, big personality comes across on the screen if you don't know him like we do.

He also let me know that it didn't really even matter what we ended up doing, as long as we were together...sharing our love.

Dying, I tell you!

We had a wonderful evening together.

Sharing our love.

sweet post. i'm also especially fond of sharing love with our lil' sprout. :)
noticed that you're working on your first novel... if you get stuck along the way i found this book, "no plot, no problem" to be helpful. happy writing! :)

You're raising one great kid. His future wife one day is going to be smitten. :) What a cutie.

That is the sweetest thing, Bethany! What a fantastic idea! I may have to try that myself one of these days. You are such an awesome mom!

With four kids I often wonder how you do it all. But a date night with just one boy, how wonderful. What a great way to give them your undivided attention.
