This is my Valentine of 14 years.  He is still just as handsome and I am even more in love with him today.
We had a busy Valentine's Day this year.  All the kids woke up to find special Valentine surprises outside their bedroom doors, and then they were off to go skiing.  Tucker had a race up at Bogus so Jed took the kids who wanted to go.  Look at those cold red cheeks.  We don't know where he placed, but he says he did his best.   
Then in the late afternoon we were off to another of Hannah's gymnastics meets.  She did really good.  She got her personal best on the beam, and came in 4th this time in the all around.  Great job Hannah.
Every Valentine's Day we have a family tradition of getting Chinese food and bringing it home to eat it at the table that is decorated with fancy glasses (not a single one broke this year :-)) candies, and candlelight. We finish dinner off with homemade chocolate dipped strawberies.  I love spending this special day with all of my Valentines.  Unfortunately with our busy day we had to put off our dinner until 8:00, and our little Zoe just couldn't make it that late.  We missed her at the table but maybe that contributed to our success of no broken glasses.  Then we all snuggled up together to watch Madagascar 2.
Hope each and everyone else had as wonderful of a day as I did.

Tucker - I want to hear how you did on your race! Better every week!

How was the snow up at Bogus? We didn't make it up on Saturday like we were wanting to. I have that book now - 'Making the Cut' by Jillian Micheals if you want to borrow it. By the way, I think you are a cute mommy and I love the fun stuff you do with your kids.
