Lovey Dovey

We sure do love our holidays around here! And we're sure glad Grandma Ned does, too, since she sends the best packages each and every time! The kids are always so excited to get any kind of mail, almost every day they ask if anything came for them. I need to find them a pen pal or something so they can get mail more often.

We also got a fun pre-Valentine's package from Grandma Jodi. She sent valentine's card and treats for the boys to take to school, and stickers to help decorate their boxes for school. They were both pretty adamant about using valentine colors for their boxes. Owen was especially careful to make sure his stickers were perfect. I remember when I was young, going through all my cards and deciding who to give each one to. The perfect one had to be given to my best friend, the boy I liked, the boy who liked me but I definitely DID NOT like, you get the idea. So much time and effort was taken into what to write! My boys, they scribbled their names and that was that. Maybe they are still a little young? Maybe the boys I liked in elementary didn't look twice at the cards they gave me?

I usually put a little more effort into fun food for the holiday but the red jell-o was just about as festive as it got. Aunt Kenzie actually made the sugar cookies when she was here on Saturday, and you better believe they were gone by Sunday night. They were delish!

Fun! Did you and Nick get to do anything fun for Vday? Your kids are so sweet, I miss seeing the boys. I think it's been over a year. Maybe it's time to take a trip to Utah.
