Family Valentines Gathering..

On Saturday we went over to my sister and brother-in-law's place for a Valentines gathering. In classic fashion, my sister threw an amazing gathering. Seriously, the girl really missed her calling as a party planner.

Here are some of the highlights:

Playing one of the games - we're all big sushi eaters so one would think we would be adept at using chop sticks. We were given one minute and had to pick up as many candy hearts as we could with the chop sticks. T Rex actually helped me - he took hearts from my brother-in-law (to my left) and put them on my plate. But it still was not enough to win.

The winner - T Rex Dad - 58 hearts in one minute!

T Rex offering more assistance to his cousin and uncle during another game.

The other night during evening prayers T Rex prayed for a balloon - his exact words, "Help us...balloon" - his prayers were answered when he showed up at Auntie and Uncle's.

Little Girl got lots of snuggles from Nana.

T Rex Dad and I did not do anything particularly special on Valentines Day - just spent some quality time together as a family. Three years ago T Rex was my Valentines Day gift (he was born in November, you can do the math)!

This year, Little Girl was my birthday, Christmas, and Valentines gift - all in one.

I cannot thank T Rex Dad enough for these wonderful "gifts" and for being my very special Valentine for the past 10 years. He still makes my heart flutter every time we're together!

That's a fun idea for a game! All the pictures are great :) It's sweet how T-Rex gets involved in all the joy of family gatherings. Little Girl looks precious in the photos.

Looks like a blast! I love seeing pictures of your mom...she looks so sweet with your little gal!

And speaking of sweet...your baby is so precious. I can't get over thinking she looks so much like YOU!

Aww... that is so cute! My mother is one of those who missed her calling as a party planner because she is so good at it.

Sounds like a lot of really great gifts in your life.
