Happy Valentine's Day!!

We celebrated Valentine's Day this morning by presenting gifts to each other. This is always a fun time together as a family. Doyle got me a dozen roses with some candy and a beautiful card. He really is my gift from God. I will never cease to be amazed at how blessed I am to me married to the man of my dreams. I got him some candy, card, and a balloon.

I had so much fun with the gifts this year. I wrapped them a couple of days early and it drove the kids crazy. Here is Julianna with her special gifts from the family. I got the girls two cute shirts each and the boys these toy sets(one was a helicopter and the other was a K-9 unit). I found incredible bargains on the shirts and toys. I decided to go easy on the candy since they get so much at school.

Samuel and his loot.

Lydia waiting to open her gift.

Joseph giving his cheezy grin.

The kids exchange cards. I keep their cards from year to year in a special place. I know they will value them a lot more in the future. I am looking forward to spending an enjoyable day together with my family.
