Valentine's Day

Our weekend getaway didn't materialize....and I didn't get a back up gift ready. BAD WIFE. Mike, however, got me a great gift. It's a beautiful necklace..silver chain, Concho pears set in a silver setting..... This man is good! Silver for our 25th. Concho Pearls are only found HERE and so it will remind me of this place where I will leave many friends.
I thought since the getaway didn't work, I'd pick up something quick - but honestly - silver and men? I couldn't come up with a thing...duct tape.... We'll reschedule our getaway. The question is do we do it NOW (cabin in Fburg), during our move to wherever (OR coast?), or from our new location (who KNOWS)? Hmmm.

The kids were well enough that we were able to go birthday shopping for the birthdays that got largely missed last week. We had a lot of time to visit, be together - and it was great.

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Zander likes to play with the circuit sets that Grandma Mary and Grandpa Earl gave the kids. Here he checks to see what happens if you throw a screw into a moving fan.

Here he tries to figure out why the TABLE sounds like Krista (speaker phone). The photo is there because Mike was teasing me. I couldn't talk to the table....so they put the photo there and then I could talk to Krista.

While we were out shopping, Jared and Arielle put together Bennigan's Death by Chocolate. It was GOOD - I'll post the recipe later.

Wow - the thought behind your necklace was fabulous. That was the best part of the gift I bet! Congratulations to both of you for such a wonderful milestone.
