{Happy Valentine's Day!!}

Valentine's Day is so fun! We have been celebrating for a  week.  We took one day to do Valentine's for cousins, aunts & uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents.  And one day to do their Valentine's for their classmates at school. (By the way....so glad this is a 'neutral' holiday that kids can still celebrate at school!!  We don't get Christmas, Easter, or even Halloween anymore...so you must live it up on Valentine's Day!)  The kids love getting their class lists, valentines, treats, 'valentine box', etc...don't you totally remember loving that in grade school??!


And on one night we did Valentines for each other.  Cutting, pasting, gluing, coloring...my kids love all of that!  And then I hung them on our sliding door. 


I think I will attempt a raspberry cheesecake for Valentine's Day dessert along with 'Red' food for dinner.  Trevor is in charge of the usual Valentine's Day surprises for the kids (think small trinkets and candies....but seems super-big time for the kids!).  And I bought them 50 cent candy grams from the PTA to be delivered to them at school tomorrow.  Love being a Mom to my 3 sweet Valentines!!  And was lucky to sneak away on Saturday night with main Valentine on a date night to dinner and the ward 'Sweetheart Dance'.  It was a throwback to proms of yester-year...and really fun! Feeling loved and blessed...and hope you are too!!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
