Valentine's 2010

We don't usually make a big deal about Valentine's Day, however, we have a young lady who just loves getting flowers from her daddy! Several times Chuck has given her flowers and whenever a special day comes up she will say, "I wonder if Daddy is going to get me flowers?" Well, she said this a few days before Valentine's Day and guess what arrived for us on Friday? Hmmmm...someone (or two people) are very loved. I really intend for this blog to be a scrapbook of our day to day lives. Since I don't do a scrapbook, I plan on printing my blog into a book once a year. I hope that when our children and grandchildren read these posts they will feel that love that exists in our family. Chuck is such a loving and caring husband and father and he makes us all feel safe and loved. I really appreciate how he is in tune with the little things that we all enjoy. I wish I could be more like him in that respect. He takes notice of what things make us happy and from time to time he surprises us with these little things to brighten our day. The best thing is that it isn't about the "things" at all, but really about the fact that he has taken the time to know us so well. Thank you Chuck...we love you more than you will ever know!

Snow Day!

Well, the weather forecasters were predicting a big snow and this time...they delivered! With everyone being cancelled, we had a nice lazy day at home. In fact, I didn't even get out of my jammies! I can't remember the last time I did that, but it sure was nice. The kids played out for a bit and then Brock went over to play at Cade's house. That was at about 2:00 and we didn't see him again until 8:00 tonight! He had a blast hanging out with them today! Shortly after supper, Kimber came down to hang out with Kenzie and the lazy day just continued on. They snuggled under a warm blanket and I threw in a frozen pizza and we all watched a movie. Brock was home for about 30 minutes when we got the call that school was cancelled for tomorrow. Within minutes Cade had called to arrange a sleep over...needless to say, Brock was out the door in a flash. Now, I won't be thrilled when we are making these days up, but for now...I think I'll just enjoy the rest of this lazy day!

Well, you know you are bored on a snowy Saturday when you blog pictures of your hotel room! Hopefully, these will be the last photos I ever take that have my shadow at the bottom. I took a mini photography class at the etech conference and I finally learned (a little) how to shoot in manual and without my flash. These, obviously, were taken before the class. I wanted to take more pictures during the conference, but honestly, I was so busy going to sessions during the day that in the evening I just wanted to sit and relax, so hotel room photos are just about all I have to show for the week. It was a beautiful hotel room and I really appreciated staying in such a nice place.
