A lovely Valentines Day!

I had a nice Valenti's day and thought I would share it with y0u. Dan made this great poster with what else but all my my favorite chocolate treats.
There were about 8 bags of treats that he put in these fancy bags that he then bagged up int a circle.

I also got this Hall Tree for the entry way. He spent all Saturday morning putting it together, not the most fun mornings we have had and then it's missing the trim that is supposed to go on the top. I think I will go to Pier 1 and look for a colorful pillow for the bench.
Katie made me this great card. When she got home from primary she added the the baby Jesus that she made there. When Jessica asked she added the baby Jesus she say because Jesus loves us and Valentines is all about love. I'll buy that!
I dare your to read the inside of the card. It starts around the middle, jumps up top and back down. Luckily I had Jessica to read it to me.
Jessica brought flowers and some treats for Dan and I.

We had all the kids over, other then Kane who was working, Kaylan, who is in Colorado and of course, Sarah. It was a great day. I hope your's was too!!!

More Pictures...just in case you haven't had enough!

We all like to hold him...
especially when he looks right at you.

First time in his crib

Gabe is pretty cute, and I am lucky enough to have him at my house!
It took a few days but he is now nursing pretty good and he will grow up to fast!

Family Traditions Live On...

It's that fun time of year for the traditions to live on.
Bradley and Katie got to shop for a few more ornaments for
our tree. Katie inst ed on 2 because Bradley has
more the her. We lucked out, ornaments were on sale and
it was $7 for all three.
The next day is was time to do our houses.
Here is a sample of our fun.
Did you notice on the first picture how
serious Brent gets?
For those who make theirs quickly it's time to
Let the decorating begin!

A thoughtful Katie.

We asked Bradley why he was just standing around,
he said his dad was doing it all and hadn't told him
the plan.

This is the creation of Kaylan and Bradley.
A hunting cabin complete with an Out House!
Great job guys...

This is Kellie's creation, very cute, we all thought
it looked like a church.

Katie's is a bit more under control than usual, she did a good job.

Cindy's house is sweet and cute just like her!

Brent's house is a replica of my housecomplete with lights! Hopefully mine is a bit sturdier.

Murray Update

Just a quick note to let you know that Dan's mom passed away early this morning. She had been doing quite well with the Leukemia until about 3 weeks ago when she got phenomena and an infection. She spent 2 weeks in the hospital and then they brought her home. Dan's sisters took care of her for the last 4 days.

She and Jess both wanted to donate their b0dies to the U. Jess was 1 year too old but they were able to take Doris'.

We will have a small, family memorial for her this week and the burial when her body is returned.

Love you all!

This tree in the fall is the reward for all the crab apples we have to pick up.

It's actually very pretty in the spring when it blooms too.

We took the time during General Conference to make our Halloween houses, thinking that Bradley and Katie could make them while we listened. We didn't hear much of conference but we had fun! Check out our creations for this year...
