"Open up your chest and let it in... just let the love, love, love begin."

The title is from the song "Everybody" by Ingrid Michaelson.  I love it- such a fun song! 
The boys making Valentines for school.
On Friday night, Bethany and Blake came and watched our kids so we could go on a Valentine's date to Benihana's.
 They helped the kids make personal pizzas.  We ate steak and shrimp- yum!

On Valentine's Day, we had a family candlelight dinner.
For dessert, we made parfaits with brownies, whipped cream, strawberries, chocolate sauce, and sprinkles.
Since it was also family night, we had a little lesson.  Each person picked a heart from the basket and read a quote or scripture about love.

Glad you guys had a great Valentines Day. Your other blog with your sisters is so fun! You guys are sooooo cute in the picture at the wedding and you all have such fun ideas. I definately want to do your Christmas advent tree at the end of the year:). I'm adding it to my blog list!
