Happy Valentines!!

We've had such a great weekend! A great weekend home with the Husband and kiddo! :)
First- on Friday- I went down to Jeff's class and hung out with him during lunch and during his class party. The kids are so funny on Valentines day. I love it. I made some sweet rolls for the principal and her secretaries (and also for the ladies I visit teach) This is the recipe I made and they turned out really yummy. I also forgot to take a picture of them before they were all wrapped up- but I made them into little hearts. Instead of rolling them all one way, you roll the two sides into each other and pinch the bottom! Way fun! Dallin also made some little Valentines with me to give to some friends.

The rest of Friday was relaxing and nice. Dallin fell asleep during dinner and slept the rest of the night, so Jeff and I stayed up late and watched two movies together- "Next" and "The Illusionst". "Next"= really cool idea- but the chemistry between Nicholas Cage and Jessica Biel just seemed weird to me... and "The Illusionist"= Jeff and I loved it! Especially the ending!

Saturday- Valentines Day! Jeff made me breakfast in the morning and just did little things all morning to help me out. It was sweet. I don't think he realized how much it meant to me. :) He also got me flowers a few days before... On a day that I really needed it! I'm not really someone that needs flowers all the time... But sometimes- it's just so nice!

After Lunch, we decided to just go on a random drive. We didn't know where we'd end up, but the road ended up taking us to Bryce Canyon area. It was such a beautiful day! And it was so much fun to just be together as a family.

This was a little song we caught him singing to himself to pass time as we were driving:
On the way back... Dallin must have too many treats and too many twists and turns, because he ended up throwing up EVERYTHING all over himself, his car seat and the entire seat next to him. We didn't have hardly anything in the car to clean him up, so we tried to keep going for a few minutes to see if the gas station up ahead was open... it was not... But during those few minutes... Dallin thought he'd help himself to some licorice bites he had had in his hand. Jeff and I were laughing so hard. It was so gross! I even took a picture of it, but decided to spare everyone of the nasty puke in the picture. :) We finally just pulled over and did what we could to clean him up. We stripped him down to his diaper and wrapped him up in a blanket in his carseat.... And he was perfectly happy the rest of the way home... :)

We usually go out for dinner on Valentines Day, but this year decided to stay in and have a family party. I was so proud of myself for the pizza I made:
I cut all the toppings into hearts! :) We had little heart Champagne glasses (filled with milk) and watched "Charlie Brown's Valentine" movie together. Then Jeff and I also "Sweet Home Alabama" (Yes- I know we watched a ton of movies this weekend! :) Dallin and I got Jeff a movie and a little card.

Jeff- I love you so much. Thank you for being such a wonderful man. I'm glad you're mine and that I'm yours! Forever! Love you!!

Cute idea with the heart-shaped rolls and heart-shaped pepperoni! (And, my condolences on the puke!)

Sounds like a lot of fun. We just watched "The Illusionist" also. If you liked that and haven't seen "The Prestige" yet, you should watch it. It is about some magicians also, and we like it even better than "The Illusionist".

I love the heart pepperoni and canadian bacon! Very creative.
