Valentine's Day 2010

Valentine's day is one of my absolute favorite holidays. It's just so sweet! It began with my annual trip to Steph's Valentine Exchange party. She always outdoes herself (even 9 months pregnant) and I love seeing how creative everyone is at her party. This year, I made homemade mini loaves of bread and homemade honey butter. I think they turned out cute, and my family who sampled said they were yummy! Local friends (and VT-ees) got freezer jam. Transporting runny freezer jam just seemed like a really bad idea.
For the next few days, the girls really enjoyed the spoils of my exchange (though I kept many for myself). They absolutely gorged themself on a beautiful cupcake the day after the exchange. Sara helped me plant a flower while Laura was at school. Then, the day after Valentine's day (Sara was too sick on Valentine's proper) we had a great time opening Steph's Surprise Ball.
Jason and I started doing a babysitting swap with Deb's family a little bit ago. We lucked out and got Valentine's weekend. So, amazingly, we got a date. We thouroughly enjoyed ourselves at all-you-can-eat Sushi - Jason's request. Ahh...what 7 years of marriage can do to change a guy. Jason hated fish when we first got married!
I dressed Eliza up for Valentine's day because she is really everybody's little Valentine!
Also, on Valentine's day, after we went to Makayla's blessing, we dressed in Valentine's shirts and sweatpants (Sara was so sick with the stomach flu) and the girls got their Valentine's from us - stickers, nail polish, socks and chapstick. They were thrilled! And, we loved all the kisses we got out of the deal.


  1. What a fun holiday with 3 little sweethearts! Glad everyone is now feeling better.

  2. It really was a great Valentine's this year. How could it not be when I have the 4 best Valentine's in the world!?

  3. What a great holiday for your sweethearts! Love to all of you!

  4. Hey, I just noticed in that picture of the girls unwrapping Steph's surprise ball that Melinda is wearing a William's shir-sey and Sara is wearing a Boozer shir-sey. That's AWESOME! I love my girls!
