Valentine's Day with the Fam

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!


For some reason, ever since I got married, I have totally been into every holiday there is on the calendar, and this V-day was no different. Besides the fact that my kitchen was completely coordinated (placemats, plates, cups, cake stand, etc.") I decided that I would bring this nifty pancake making gadgets up to my in-laws to have a pancake party. And of course, the pancakes were in the shapes of hearts. We had such a fun time trying to figure out how on earth to use the contracption, and I don't think we ever got a "heart shaped" pancake out of it......but it was fun nonetheless :) OH, and I should mention, this all took place the day before V-day.....

  • Whose parents do you see the most? It just depends on the week or what events are going on....for the most part, it's pretty equal
  • Who proposed? Jason. He took me to the Roof @ the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial bldg and our table was right next to the window overlooking the pond @ temple square. He knew my favorite sont (and the one I wanted to be played 1st at our reception) is Frank Sinatra's " It had to be You." So as we are walking back from getting dessert, I hear the pianist play "it had to be you." Next think I know, Jason was on his knees...
