Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! We had such a great day. Nicholas had a Valentine's day party at school and passed out valentine's to all his friends. Plus they had lots of yummy treats. We also dropped off valentines to my sisters, brother and sister in laws and the boys cousins. I got home and found a package from pro flowers on my porch. Chad got me a vase with 2 dozen roses in 6 different colors (they were beautiful) a teddy bear and a small box of chocolate with a very romantic card. I was very surprised. Then we went to Dave and Chrissy's house and Chad and Dave made Chrissy and I a delicious dinner. It was Chicken Sorrentino with baked asparagus. It was amazing. They also melted chocolate and dipped strawberries in white and dark chocolate and made them look like little tuxedos. we played a game and enjoyed some quiet time with the kids all playing downstairs. It was a great night. I hope everyone had a great day and got to spend time with the ones they love. I feel so blessed to have my husband home this year to celebrate with. I love my boys:)

February 2011

I have been so bad about blogging. I am pretty sure I haven't taken any pictures lately either. i have no excuse other than life is busy. Chad started school a few weeks ago. He was getting frustrated that jobs weren't working out and decided to go back and finish his degree. It has been great for him to have this to keep him busy and get more of a schedule back into our lives. it has been an adjustment with him being home but it is getting easier and we all love having him here for dinner every night and spending weekends together. he also got called to be the elder's Quorum President a couple weeks ago. He was really surprised by this calling. Not at all what we were expecting but isn't that how it usually works?? Heavenly Father always has something else in mind:) He has really enjoyed it so far. Nicholas has been busy with preschool. Although he has had 3 or 4 snow days in the last few weeks from ALL the snow!! He had a Superbowl party on Friday and had a lot of fun. He is excited about his Valentine's day party next week. I made some Valentines for him to give to his friends and he signed his name on them. Jacob loves to talk....nonstop. I wonder who he got that from;) He loves his big brother and loves to play made up games with him. He is enjoying reading books and watching Handy Manny (he knows all the tools by name) and a new show called Bubble Guppies. He is my little love bug. I have been busy as well. I am teaching a new class in primary this year. I have three 8 year old boys in my class and they keep things interesting. I am also in charge of doing Faith in God with the girls twice a month. Chad and I got to go to the temple together last week. i'm sad to say that it has been a few years since we've had that opportunity. It was so great to be there with him and to do some family names. We have made a goal to try to go once a month. So far so good. I am also training for a 5K. It is in April. Training is going well and I'm excited about accomplishing this goal. Sorry I haven't posted any pictures. I need to get better at taking them. i hope you are all having a wonderful 2011 so far.
