Valentines Day

We had such a fun Valentines Day! Tracy got to stay home because of the snow so we played all day. The kids played in the snow while we, or Tracy, shoveled our walks and helped with 3 others. Then we were able to decorate Valentine cookies. It was a lot of fun. We delivered cookies and went and saw my mom for a bit. After running to WalMart for some last minute dinner stuff, we went home and we made lasagna. We all had a candle light dinner together. It was so much fun! The kids thought it was the coolest thing to eat by candle light and they all ate so well. We had ice cream for dessert and then watched "Just Like Heaven". Cute movie. We thought a romantic comedy was well suited for the day. It was such a fun relaxing day.

Tracy and I got to go out last Friday. That was also a blast. We went with 4 other couples. We went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner then went to my brother and sister-in-laws stake Valentines Dance for a few minutes. Then we went and saw "Fools Gold". I liked it, I'm a big Mathew McConaughey fan. It was so much fun to be out with other adults for a whole night. We had a babysitter watch our kids and my nieces and nephews. 8 kids under 8, bless her! (Our kids stair-step starting with Tiaree and ending with their youngest who turned 1 in September. We have so much fun together!) But she is a senior and more responsible so we didn't worry about her. They had fun and we had a worry-free, child-free night!

I hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day!

Well aren't you lucky. Adam and I need to go out it's been a long time. On our valentines day we didn't have to shovel snow so I bet your jealous about that. Just kidding.
