So the girls love to put on mini performances for Mike and I. Yesterday they wanted to do one. They have some play make-up and usually like to put a little on. (the usual places such as their eyes etc.) Well to our stunning surprise, this is how they came out to perform. McKinley did not have a part of her face that wasn't covered with blue or white eye shawdow. She was very proud of her interpretive make-up. Needless to say the performance was a Hit!
Our "beautiful" McKinley...

So when did Valentine's Day become so much work?
I know that I do it to myself, but I just love Valentine's Day. We started out the morning bright and early with a special heart waffle breakfast. The kids think that special breakfasts are awesome! I guess anything beats a bowl of cold cereal.
Lunch was Heart egg sandwiches. They have been begging me for egg sandwiches for the past week. They worked out perfect.
We had a special dinner. Not a romantic evening, but very fun none the less. By the time we had all of our special meals, made all of our school valentines, passed out friends and neighbor treats, I was exhausted. But our family loves Valentines!!!
Spencer was my sweet little valentine. He is always up for anything and is such a sweet little boy. Next year he will be all about the food and treats like the girls. On to the next holiday...

Saturday was a SKI day. Which means that my awesome husband took the kids for me again and gave me a bit of freedom. It was the most beautiful day ever. The snow was absolutely incredible. We went as girls from our ward and had a blast. I have not skied much since I have had kids and I realized how much I really LOVE to ski. So much of my elementary, Jr. High, and High School experience was hitting the slopes every weekend. The only trouble is, now I can't get it out of my blood. I keep thinking to myself "when can I get back up there and go again?" We are planning another Saturday in a few weeks, but I think that at least I might take McCall up one afternoon soon just to be up in the fresh beautiful mountains.
