Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
My dear friend Karen has volunteered to babysit the boys for us tonight...so that means Z and I get to go on a date! We haven't been on one of those for a while. We even have dinner reservations at my very favorite restaurant (a Thai restaurant in our fair city). Yum! We'll have dinner and dessert, followed by a movie (though we're not sure which one yet).
And Karen...well...she'll be in for an interesting evening kid-sitting the boys. I'm sure with all the valentine candy floating around here, the movie they'll watch, and the caffeine-free soda they'll drink tonight she'll be busy (and likely very ready to go home when we get back)! But, the boys love Karen...and I know they'll have a good time.
Thanks to all of you who said such kind words during my moments of discouragement about Twinkie's situation. I know that if it is God's will, then things will work out and Twinkie will join our family. That's what we want...and we'll wait until we get the verdict.
