Our Valentine's Day!!

I know that Valentine's Day was almost a week ago but it is Flash Back Friday right?

Well I wanted to share how our Valentine's went. Kurt had a four day weekend, so he was off Friday through Monday! Yeah, it was so nice to have him home all weekend.

Anyway, Kurt's birthday is this month and during the week of Valentine's, I had ordered a present online and was waiting for it to come in the mail. Well, during the day on Friday, the doorbell rang and I sprang out of bed from a nap and told Kurt, "Don't you dare open that door!"

He stood back and let me open the door and when I opened it:

I found this!
I felt like such a jerk. It was a package for me. I had felt bad that I didn't let Kurt get the door and set it up for me. He then told me it didn't matter because he probably would have not been home when it came anyway, so he would not have been able to set it up. I didn't feel so bad after that.

Here is Ayla trying to get into the package.

Here is what was inside!
A bear, some chocolates and roses, of course. Kurt opened the package and set it up for me anyway.

Here is a close up. Aren't the roses beautiful?

On Valentine's, the roses started to bloom and I took a close up of my favorite one.

Here they are, all in bloom.

And a close up of them in bloom. I loved my Valentine's gift. Two of my favorite things, roses and chocolates and the bear was a bonus.

Here is a picture of the gifts Ayla and I gave Kurt.

I also made him a card that had a shirt on it that said, "I am the best" and on the card it said "If the shirt fits wear it!" and on the inside it said " I think the shirt fits because you are the best husband / daddy!"

Kurt and I always fight over who is the best!! And Ayla and I got him some new shirts to wear. That is why I drew a shirt on the card. I know I am cheesy but oh well, I liked it!!

Kurt reading his card and Ayla not looking too happy!

Ayla helped her dad open his presents.



Here is Kurt with his presents.

Notice how tired he looks? It's not because he didn't like his gifts. Well, we had stayed up late on Friday and it was after midnight when I decided to give him his gifts. So it was Valentine's already. After opening his gifts, we all went to bed.

On Valentine's day, I was supposed to go to breakfast with my dad and visit my sister-in-law, Krista and her kids but the weather was horrible and so I didn't get to do those things.

I did get to take the young women to the Salt Lake Temple and do baptisms though. That was so nice. I always love to go to the temple. There were so many weddings that day but, go figure, it was Valentine's day and people wanted to get married that day. The temple looked so beautiful with the fresh snow on it. I wished I had my camera but I didn't.

After the temple, I had to get home to get Kurt and Ayla because we went to our ward's Valentine's dinner party. It was fun!

They had line dancing there and I was having fun dancing but I had to stop because I have not been feeling so good lately and I have been dizzy. So being dizzy and not having energy was not a good mix so I stopped.

Here is a picture of Allie and Ayla in their Valentine's outfits. Too cute!

Mike is holding Allie, he is her dad and Hal is holding Ayla. Ayla kept walking up to Hal and so he picked her up and I had been wanting a picture of Allie and Ayla together, so I took my chance.

Kurt kept walking around with Ayla. I love the look on her face in this picture. I think she looks like my sister, when she was little.

Kurt also was dancing with Ayla.
Kurt never dances in public. So I had to take a picture. Too cute!!

Kurt noticed I was taking a picture and so he had to shoot me the "I got you babe."

Kurt and I were asked to be in the Newley Wed Game for the entertainment at the dinner. It was a lot of fun and we won!! Yay! We won dinner at Cafe Rio! Kurt did really well. He got 8 out of 10 questions right and he would have gotten 9 but I had changed my answer on one of them. I didn't do as well as him. I only got 5 out of 10 right. So we won because Kurt is the best!!

We had a wonderful Valentine's and the best part was being able to spend it with the people we love!! After all, isn't that what Valentine's is about?
