If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Sunday Snapshot-Homemade Valentines

I Heart Faces had a post this week on Valentines.  There was this super cute picture of a child making kissing faces and the mom had used it to close a bag holding Hershey's kisses.  I liked the idea and decided to take pics of the kiddos for a similar Valentine that would feature all my kids.

I wasn't sure if we would do Hershey's hugs or Hershey's kisses or both so we just went for it.

And settled on a combination pose.

Prior to seeing the post on I Heart faces, my idea was to do this next shot and attach a piece of candy to it.

But Jack wasn't thrilled with the idea of having his friends see him with the word "love" on the bottom of his feet and it didn't convince him when I told him we could do "be mine" instead. :)   So we settled on the shot where you couldn't see their heads.  It is all about the feet anyway.  Right?

Alright so the final product looks like this.  I will fold it over a treat bag filled with Hershey's hugs and kisses and send them to school with the kids.  I will be sure and post a pic in a few weeks of the finished product.
