happy valentine's day!

we had a whirl-wind of a weekend!

the olympics started on friday night. WE LOVE THE OLYMPICS! i watched all the opening ceremony and REALLY enjoyed it. but when people started talking about kd lang's performance i was at a loss. i thought i totally missed it. until they showed a clip of it on the today show this morning! i had in fact seen her performance, but thought it was a man THE.ENTIRE.TIME. whoops. but, she is very talented.

on saturday i hosted a baby shower with my sister, emily. it was so fun to have my sisters in town (all but one...WE MISSED YOU NATALIE!). and it was fun to celebrate this little boy that we are SO ANXIOUS to meet!

then, on saturday early evening a few of us (mom & dad, jarom & elena, brandon & emily, and me, kev, and madalyn) went and enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Sandpiper here in Idaho Falls. It was a very relaxing, delicious and enjoyable experience...just what i ordered! thanks emily for making those reservations!

and sunday morning brought VALENTINE'S DAY! a funny thing about getting ready for valentine's day. i let the boys each pick out a box of valentines (owen picked bakugan ones with tattoos and wesley picked spider man ones with pencils). as owen was getting his valentine's ready to take to school i kept chanting "o-w-e-n spells owen" to help owen stay focused as he wrote his name on each one. wesley was also preparing his valentine's and i later noticed he was saying "o-w-e-n spells wesley ward" as he was writing. i tried correcting him several times trying to get him to say "w-e-s spells wes" but after a few tries he would go right back to "o-w-e-n spells wesley ward". i even asked him the next day how to spell wes and he repeated my chant. guess it was a little too powerful! (;

the kids received a few valentine's in the mail. THEY LOVE MAIL! and really enjoyed each valentine they received. thanks everyone!

i "let" kevin sleep in sunday morning and presented the kids their valentines and then made a strawberry and cream waffle breakfast that i pretty much enjoyed alone because the boys prefer syrup on their waffles (shame...i know.).
