I really do enjoy Valentines Day. It's just fun to talk about loving people and doing nice things for eachother and talking with a little more kindness and eating things that are sweet and having my kids wear red.
|The fellas..2009 with their giant chocolate milk dud eyes and red shirts.|
Ah, just look at my Katey Kate in her hearty heart dress PERFECT for the big day of L-O-V-E. Please note the red shirt on Jack..red vest on Brody for future reference.

If you ever find your way down to Vegas say for an awe inspiring sheet metal trade show or something like that...might I suggest you try a few things:
|Try opening your curtains every morning and not smiling when this is the site that greets you. Good morning Eiffel Tower and shaded ice pool..isn't it lovely?|
|Please indulge in the best lemon chicken ever to be consumed. The green beans cooked to perfection were equally incredible.|
|If I were a wafe and could eat anything /anytime I would eat Serendipity's frozen hot cocoa daily...maybe evening hourly. It's that tasty to me. I am far from wafe and I'm still thinking about it.|
|Take lame picture after lame picture in hopes of getting ONE decent shot of both of you withOUT double chins. Hard to do.|
|Meet up with -even for 30 minutes in Paris :)- your darling cousin Amy who lives in LV. and you don't see near enough. Laugh about kids, siblings, old times at Utah State and just life in general.|
|Try not to worry that you can't find a good Pillow Pet kiosk. Never fear...they're right next Willy Wonka, Mr. T, Batman and the lady with very-very little clothing on.|
|So there ya go.....Las Vegas! You were quite fabulous in a let's go shopping, keep your blinders on and just enjoy the food kinda way!|

Behold.. an 8 year old Lego lovers dream come true!
In my neck of the woods there lives an A.F.L... "Adult Fan of Legos." This particular "AFL" has an amazingly jaw dropping collection of Legos and just so happens to work for the BSA or Boys Scouts of America. You combine those 2 together and get: The BrickScout Jamboree. Long story short, this cool guy/scout master from another ward invited my little cub pack to attend this fabulous event... a day full of games, building, trivia and competition ALL things LEGO!!
Just a few pictures from the big day.....
|One of the many and totally clever games to play around the gym. Mr. Jack actually took 1st place......he was very pumped about that. Good thing Cole came to visit at lunch time and wore his smarty pants...I'm just sayin.|
|Jack's Harry Potter creation.|
|The "Whomping Willow" ...or something like that.|
|Mini figures everywhere....|
|The Wolf and Hogwarts|
|A photographer from Boy's Life magazine was there to document the whole event. Word on the street is that sometime in the months to come these Lego lovers will grace the pages of this fine publication.|
|Pretty cool huh?!|
This was such a fun activity that obviously took a ton of planning and effort to pull off. We felt really lucky to get the invite. So there you have it. The ideas are already spinning for next year.
