valentines, friends and fun

 1) a new Valentine is added to the family this year. Dallas is happy and we are too.
2) handmade valentines is an old family tradition.
3) valentine cookies are so fun to make!

 1) a surprise tracing by me for Pop's on the dashboard... if only you could see the rest of the dirty truck ;)
2) bestie, Kayla, and me at church
3) a pencil balancing act on his nose...some people in Bible class are just so entertaining

1 and 2) two buddies reunite at the Freed Hardeman lectures in Tennessee                                                                                                   3) my new Vera Bradley clutch.... i think i like

 1 and 3) just don't get to see these friends enough.
2) my best, best, best, bestie Natalie. spending a few days with her was very much needed.


1 and 2) texting, phone calls, Arby's fries, headphones, laughing, silly faces and sleeping are very much a part of the drive home from Tennessee.

We do semi-homemade Valentines. We make treats but use store bought Valentines. I got them last March for 10 cents a box, what a steal!
