A great Valentines!

We had a really fun weekend! Our friend's Paul & Tiffany and their girls Addie & Sydney came down from Logan and stayed with us.

We all went to the Draper Temple open house Friday night. It was beautiful, and the best part was walking through with my kids & seeing it through their eyes. My girls especially liked the Brides' Dressing Room, of course! Josh & Ammon were mesmerized by the beautiful chandeliers. Then we came home and put all the kids to bed so the adults could stay up late, eat yummy valentine treats, and play games. I forgot to take a picture (this photo came with the recipe), but I made this chocolate fruit tart. Mine actually had strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and kiwi. It was so pretty and tasted amazing (if I do say so myself)!Mark & Paul really spoiled Tiff and me on Saturday! They made us a delicious breakfast of crepes & pumpkin waffles, then sent us off to get massages (aaaaahhhhhhh!)I came home to a beautiful boquet of long-stem red roses & pink carnations from Mark (my favorite!) Wow! Then they swept us off to lunch at the Olive Garden...YUM-O! I had this shrimp dish that was to die for...along with a super sour & delicious Margarita. Mmmmm!
Thank you Mark for a wonderful day! I felt incredibly pampered and very loved. I love you!
This is Ammon Saturday night. I put a chair in front of my PC so he would stop pushing buttons...he is frustrated and still trying to get to it! I love his expression in this photo :)
And last but not least, I saw a beautiful, huge male pheasant almost exactly like this in my backyard this morning! We have a bird feeder out there and he must have been picking at the seeds that fell on the ground. I was able to get within about 3 feet of him. I made eye contact but as soon as I lifted my camera he flew off! What a treat!


  1. I went to BYU with Tiffany we both lived in Gates Hall! how did you meet her? it was fun to see her in your picture! Sounds like you had a great day.

  2. Hey Em, just a reminder that next week is your week with Heidi, just so you can be thinking about it.
