                                                      HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

                    Happy Valentine's Day everybody!  I love you all!  How can you not love a day about loving people?  And this time of year I really love because it's the month my favorite Valentine was born.  It just occurred to me that a decade ago I was four days away from giving birth! I can't believe my Mikayla's almost ten years old!  I can't believe I'm that old!  It seems like just yesterday.  So anyway, Mikayla just went to her first dance last night at her school.  A Valentine's dance.  She went with a friend,  but i teased her about dancing with boys, to which she told me that boys are gross.  Hopefully she'll keep that feeling for a while.  Afterwards she spent the night over, so Dave and I got some alone time.  We were watching tv, and I was like "I'm hungry".  So we jumped in the car at almost ten at night to go across the street to "Valle Luna", a yummy Mexican restaurant.  We got so disgustingly stuffed, but it was good.

           Mikayla got home this morning, and we gave her her gift, a stuffed girlie dog, and some candy.  She was delighted like she always is when she gets anything.  I'm planning her party still.  It's going to be an indoor campout.  Josiah has kindly offered to come help set up a big tent inside my house on the day of the party. And his girls are coming to sleepover too.  Kayla is super excited that her cousins can come.  And Hannah is making  a beautiful campout cake for Kayla.  I was thrilled when she said she'd do it, since her cake's kick butt.  So thanks again Hannah.  The parties gonna be a blast.  There's nothing I like more than planning a party.  I go all out.  But anyways,  now Dave and I get to go to the NBA all stars game with his brother and a few friends out in Phoenix for practically free.  His brother had extra tickets.  I love basketball, so this should be fun.  I'll let you know.  I hope all of you have a great love day, and do something nice for everyone you love!

This post is so happy! I love Valentine's Day too. And I can't believe Kayla is almost 10!!! I remember jumping in the car and driving down there from Show Low to be with you. What a great memory, and such a pretty baby.

An indoor campout party sounds fun! Can't wait to see the pics!

Sounds like you guys had a great day!

And I love hearing about things that my grown-up kids are doing together -- hope the party is tons of fun.

I remember being there when Mikayla was born, also -- and I remember stopping by that wonderful big yarn shop on Main St. on my way to the hospital and buying yarn to start a sweater for her while we waited. :o)

Any suggestions on what Mikayla's into? I was trying to brainstorm with Rylie the other day. I'm terrible at trying to figure out what to get my own kids, let alone someone else's.
