Valentimes or Balentines Recap
I really did have a lovely ode of love written out to my darling sweetheart. But I didn't have a picture, and we all know a blog without a picture is really boring.
Well, the boys really looked forward to Valentines day because they remembered that they get toys and stuff from Mom & Dad. A quick trip to Jolley's and I was set with harmonicas, a voice changer, an eyeball ring, a Transformer key chain, and a few whistles with compasses (very handy for hiking I thought). I also found what I wanted (a beautiful porcelain box with bees on it) which AK later picked up (just to give him some adventure you know). We had fun making the boys' Valentine boxes the night before, which were filled with all sorts of candy and goodies including an awesome original David Meikle original t-shirt from D. I also got a few gorgeous hand-made candles from O and I am sure something lovely from H (I am horrible, I can't remember!). And big, slobbery kisses from P!
Darling Dori insisted on babysitting (I promise people, I did not, as you may think, threaten to hang her by her toenails or anything, I promise, she really wants to!!!) and we headed out to a romantic and very fun double date with C & P. We hit Chipotle (my first time) and then headed up to Millcreek for some nearly 3 mile round trip snow-shoeing action. The weather could not have been more perfect. Perfectly clear sky, 3/4 moon, stars bright, no wind, and a chill just enough to cool our working out bods. I took a horridly non-centered picture of the L's, but it's quite cute and there is another of the four of us. We are super fun, huh?
