Cards are made. These ones went to Grandma Cyndee while the others (not shown) went to Grandma Norma and Papa Pat. The girls had a blast making their own cards and I controlled myself and let them decorate however they wanted and with whatever colors.
Cookies were made for family night on Monday. We also made some Sunday morning for Nate's family dinner that night. Those ones I should have photographed because I actually piped them and made them cute, but these ones are the family ones. Once again, I am proud of myself for holding back and letting them decorate however they wanted -- the point is that they taste delicious so who cares how they look, right?
Now for a romantic thought for this love day. . .
Ruth Wright Faust, the widow of President James E. Faust died last Sunday morning. Her death comes exactly six months after her husband died.
“Surely his almost storybook romance is among the sweetest in the annals of the church,” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve, said at President Faust’s funeral.
“Ruth Faust adored James E. Faust—everything he did and said, every act or deed or gesture melted her. He felt the same way about her, and they were ‘melted.’”
I love that . . . they were 'melted'
Are you 'melted' with your Valentine?
I know I am and I could never function without my Nate by my side.
p.s. this Valentine's Day will be simple and involve lots of my favorite fruit - strawberries!
