Happy Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day was memorable. Besides sending Erika to China that morning, I had sent packages and cards to James in the MTC, and Kara and Luke in Denver. It seemed like the first time that so many of our children were far away-- but, of course, it was great to have Daniel, Julia and Andrea home with Dave and I. I like to make a nice dinner and have surprise valentine treats for the family at dinner.

Dave never forgets the holiday, and brought me some chocolates and beautiful potted tulips. I am very blessed to have such a loving family, as well as great parents and extended family and friends. Hope you all had a great day!

What a nice family moment. That picture of you and Dave is so cute with the Love hanging over you.

Potted tulips... nice, that would last a whole lot longer.

I'm just now finally starting to take a peek in to your private life. This is a very nice thing you do for your fam. on Valentine's day. Matt and I stopped going out on Valentine's day after our first Valentine's day together...we waited 3 hours for a table. Now we celebrate together too. It's more fun to get the kids involved and make their Valentine's day special too.
