Crushing on you...

One of my favorite traditions is our "Valentines Dinner of Family Love".  We have a fancy dinner of steak and shrimp and chocolate dipped strawberries. We also take the opportunity to tell each person why we love them. It is a special time for our family. 

 I saw this idea for a drink on Pinterest and had to copy. 
This will be fun for our dinner. Here is the link for the PDF I made. 
 When I got put in as Primary president in December it was crazy. We didn't have time to give the teachers a Christmas gift in appreciation for all they do. Now that things have slowed down a little bit we put these together (idea from Pinterest, once again) for the teachers for Valentine's Day. Here's the PDF (generic, just Primary kids) for that as well.
 I love Valentine's Day and it makes me appreciate my sweet family and husband. It's nice because there isn't the pressure like with Christmas, and often it's the small tokens of affection that remind us that we are loved.

Forget me not

I planted these seeds back in October and I had almost forgotten about them. I wasn't sure really what would happen, or if I planted them in the right season, etc. But lately they are looking great and yesterday I noticed the first blossom! Yay! Nature amazes me. It gives me hope. If there is that much potential in a little seed;  if I just keep doing everything I can to nourish myself and my family that Heavenly Father can make something beautiful out of us too.
