Will you be my Valentine???

We had the best Valentines day. I have been working long hours at work and working evenings. Steve and I didn't get to go out to celebrate Valentines on our own. So I made Valentines day a fabulous family day. Cupid came in the morning with fun presents for the kids. In the evening we surprised the kids with a little bistro in our own home. I served them just like we were out! They had salads first, the main course and then desert. They even had sparkling cider. We gave them each a Valentine card sharing with them how much we love them. Normally our dinners last 20 minutes and we are on to the the next thing. Our Valentines dinner lasted over an hour. It was soooo much fun and I know the kids will be talking about it for a long time. I couldn't have picked a better way to celebrate!

Captain Moroni

The bad part about being good friends with your ward activities director is that they always ask you to help!! I have just made Steve his second costume in 3 months. And have you seen the size of my man? I can't find shirts long enough for his arms let alone a Captain Moroni costume. the fabric store I went. I think it worked out pretty well.....but I told Steve next time he is saying NO to the activities director!

Valentine project

Do you want an idea for a super easy Valentine's project?? This project was so fun and so easy. I have made 4 of these for different friends. I apologize for the fuzzy pics. I must of had a shaky hand the day I took these.


1. Cut burlap in to triangles
2. Trace the shape you want on to the burlap.
3. Fill in shape with ModgePodge and then sprinkle glitter liberally. Shake extra glitter off and let dry over night.
4. Use a large sewing needle to string triangles together.
5. Embellish with ribbon.
6. Hang it up or give it away to a friend.

Can you spell....

We are so proud of Alexa and Caleb for being in the school spelling bee. They did such a great job!!!
