This year we had a nice Valentine's Day. I think it was the first year that Jared actually thought about celebrating it, which was nice. Not that we've never done anything for V-Day in the past, but this year was just a little more special I guess. It all really started on Friday. Jared, for day's, had been wanting me to open my Valentine's Day present, so he gave it to me in bed to open before he left for work. It was a really nice HD video camera, but it's like the size of a cell phone. It's pretty cool though, the quality is so much better that my regular camera. So, hopefully I''ll be posting some better videos on here. Then a little later, the boy's and I met some other moms with kids from church at the park that morning. After we left I took the boy's to the Ceramic Shop on Main Street, I had an idea. I (with a lot of help from Maria, the lady that owns the shop), had big cups made with Jackson's hand print, and Colin's feet prints. We did three of them. One for each grandma, and one for Dad.

It ended up taking a lot more time than I had originally thought, but it was worth it.

While at the ceramic shop, Jared called to see what I was doing. He was disappointed to find out that I wasn't at home, because he said that a package for his dad was being delivered to the house. When I got home there was a box of flowers on the porch that I didn't realize were for me until I read my name on the box. They were so pretty and he had written a really sweet message to go with them. There was even a box of chocolates, even better!
Then later that afternoon, Sydney came by with all of her Valentines day stuff from school. She had a neat Valentine's foam card making set for Jackson to get creative with, okay, well me too! I probably had more fun that Jackson.
So by the end of the evening, we had decided not to go out. I asked Jared to tell me what he wanted for his Valentine's Day dinner, and we made a list. I, trying to be as quick as possible, ran to the store to get everything. Came back home and made dinner. It was really good, but it was like 9:30 by the time we got to set down and eat:) The menu consisted of a wedge salad with really yummy dressing and Parmesan. Steak and shrimp. That's Jared's steak, mine was not that big! And loaded mashed potatoes. All on a bathroom towel on he living room floor watching a movie. I think it turned out to be a pretty good Valentine's Day!
