Happy Valentine's Birthday

So our Valentine's weekend was full of fun! It started off with a delivery of flowers to my work on Friday...since Brian was still in Twin Falls. Thanks, I love love flowers! Then Saturday morning I got a couple hours out all on my own! To finish up some valentine shopping and get a few things for Braden's party in a couple weeks. As much as a love both of my boys, it was nice to have some time on my own. That night Brian had plans for our night out which I didn't know until we left. Thanks to Brian's mom for coming over and watching Braden for the night. Brian had reservations for us at The Cellar. Love that place. We enjoyed a very nice dinner and had time to talk in person that is! We were going to go to a movie but remembered our special stake meeting with Elder Cook early the next morning, so we decided not to stay out too late. Still a very good night. Love you Brian thanks for fun night out, Happy Valentine's Day.
Since my birthday always is on Valentines's Day I am trying to balance letting Brian take care of the day and me wanting to do the same for him and Braden. So we just did it together. We had a really nice breakfast speedracer style as we hurried to our early church meetings. After church Braden and I made sugar cookies and this is the one we made for Daddy.
Braden was very happy that today's activities involved cookies!

We did things a little backwards and had my birthday cake first. I got to take a little afternoon nap, yeah for naps. While doing so Brian made me a pineapple upsidedown cake. SO sweet, but SO funny that this was the cake he picked out to make, especially since I don't think I have ever made or eaten one. It was so good though, nice work Brian!

Should have really fixed myself up for this photo....like I said I had just taken a nap. Braden helped once again with the blowing out of the candles.

IF you can't tell that is two candles and then six candles...for 26, not for 8. haha
After cake we started making dinner. For our special valentines meal we made coconut shrimp, and steak. The shrimp was awesome, thanks for the recipe mom.
Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes today!
To my family: I love you all!

Hey Linds! I thought about you on your birthday...sorry I didn't call. And sorry I'm a slacker friend. Your day sounds wonderful! I'd love to get your recipe for coconut shrimp...mine don't ever turn out that great :( I love that Brian made you a cake you'd never made or eaten before, that's so awesome! Love you girl! Miss our late night talks.
