Happy "belated" Valentine's Day to all you sweethearts.
We celebrated Valentine's Day with just about our whole family being here.
It was Courtney's "Sweet Sixteen" birthday so we had to take her out for breakfast. Just Courts, her dad and I went to Shari's (it's her traditional place to go)
We followed that with a trip to the zoo. Cherise, Alyssa & Rowan, and Lalita & Simon were able to go with us.
Unbeknownst to Cherise there was someone else at the zoo waiting just for her. Kiel surprised her with a perfect Valentine proposal at the Elk Meadow. Pretty cool day so far. We continued the celebration with Jess and Joylynn and the kids coming over for supper and we had a super fun dance party in the dining room, dancing to "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen" by Niel Sedaka. Fun stuff. All in all it was a very nice day.
Courtney and Dad
Courtney and her main dance partner. He can sure move!
It's hard to get a picture of Genevieve these days. #1 she doesn't like having pictures taken because of the flash and she is just always on the move. I'm hoping with my new camera and the zoom feature I can get some great outdoor shots without her realizing the camera is there.
Danika Dolly what a precious Valentine!
Rowan is a cute little man....he "stole Mommy's heart" Gramma's too.
The boys. Simon is getting so tall. They weigh about the same.
Another group of boys. This time Hayden and Cam are with their cousin Sebastian. He spent most of the week with us because his dad got married. (see previous post)
And here are the "love-birds" They are two great kids... we kind of like them anyway. We wish you all God's best in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
It was great having a camera again. I was able to take dozens of pictures of the grandkids this past week.
I also have many pictures that were taken at church that I need to put on the church blog.
But the beginning of this post is to say congratulations to our nephew Quentin and his new bride Annie. We were there to witness the marriage vows. It was a very beautiful ceremony with our nephew Clay officiating. So many friends and relatives were there too.

Harlan and his other brother Darrel

Uncle Hayden and Danika Dolly
My "best boys" Wyatt and Rowan
I am thankful for each and every one of my kids and grandkids. And did I mention that I'm glad I have a camera again :)
Little Miss Danika turned 5 months old on Jan. 29th. We just happened to be at their house so have a picture of her. She is such a smiley little dolly. Here is Rowan, he is 3 months old today! He is a sweet snuggly little guy. Too bad his momma starves him.....look at those hollow cheeks.
