Baby Blessing

Adorable Sweet Jack was blessed yesterday, with both sets of Grandparents and all his aunts and uncles and cousins in attendance. It was held at home, the bishopric came and we had a wonderful time.

Lindsay served a lovely dinner, Pork Barbacoa, Cafe Rio style black beans, and lime cilantro rice, in freshly baked tortillas, with fresh salsa, cheese and lettuce. Apple juice to go with it all. YUMMY! For dessert we had jello cake with fresh cream topping and fresh strawberries and mango, plus Kristi's oh so rich Carmelito's, and apple pie for anyone that was so inclined. Everything was so gorgeous and tasty!

Valentines Day

Tulips are what my husband got for me this year. Beautiful Red and White Tulips, two dozen. I love how they move and change everytime I look at them. Roses don't do that, but tulips.....they have their own mind, there is just something interesting about that.

Here's the tulips from the entry way...

Tulips on the mantle, too

And cookies and candy on the table...

The kids all came over for dinner last night. Meatloaf, baked potatoes both white and sweet. A tossed salad, a medley of steamed veggies and Lindsay made a fruit salad, all with fresh fruit from Bountiful Baskets. I've had a real build up of fruits and veggies, we chopped, peeled and diced our way to dinner last night. So many fruits and veggies! Cookies and ice cream for dessert and it was a casual fun evening. So good to see them and the grandbabies...loved all the fun. Thanks you guys!

Husband and I watched Romancing the Stone the other night...I'd forgotten how fun and silly it was, with enough action to keep my husband interested...I sure like that choice for valentines day! Joe vs. the Volcano was another one we were talking about last night. Gotta love romantic comedies this time of year and that is another favorite! What are your favorite movies to watch on Valentines day?
Enjoy your day...
