Happy Valentine's Day


The kids had a great time putting their Valentine Cards together! We also made sugar cookies for our friends and neighbors. Although the day did not go exactly as planned it was enjoyable none the less.
The night before the kids and I got stuck in a blizzard on I-15 and could not get home. The point of the mountain was a mess and many people were in their cars for 3 hours trying to get over. Thankfully my sister lives on the south side of the mountain, so after waiting one hour, to go only one mile, we finally made it off the freeway. Since we were not prepared with pj's, Austin's required blanket for sleeping, we had a very sleepless night. Valentine's Day for us was a napping and relaxing day. I even cancelled the dinner reservations I had made for Greg and I a month in advance because I was too exhausted from my sleepless night.

you got stuck on I15?? Scary! There is nothing better on Valentine's Day than laying around doing nothing. Sydney looks so old in that picture- how fast they grow up!

I am soooo jealous that your neighbors and friends got your sugar cookies. I have NEVER found a cookie as good as yours and I have NEVER been able to duplicate your recipe... I AM SOOO JEALOUS!

Sorry you got stuck in the blizzard, our friends live on Traverse Mountain and their 2nd grader and Kindergartner had a sleep over at their school.

Luckily you had Jenny's house to wait out the storm.

So glad you were/are safe and that you had a place to go. How fun that Jenny lives close. Tell her hello for me!

Sydney in the bubbles is hilarious. Loie would totally love that.

Christa, Sydney is your mini-me. I think she is starting to look like you more and more. Austin looks like he really enjoyed those stickers - he may want a tatoo later in life :-) They are both such cuties! Can't wait to see the next one.
