At church on Sunday I was reminded why I blog, this month our ward is focusing on family history and on Sunday we talked about the importance of journaling. Now lets be honest I am not good at journaling, looking back at all of my journals or dairies I have countless entries of promises never to go 6 months or a year before I write again... however I am good at blogging of recording our families day to day lives and keeping our families that live a 1000 miles away up-to-date on our latest happenings. At times I think... do people really care how Hannah's class party went, or how Madisyn is doing in piano, or what Mason's latest and greatest sentence is? But I was reminded on Sunday that I care, my children will care, their children's children will care, and so on. I love blogging and I am pretty religious at doing it. I am thankful that my children will have record of how we lived our daily lives, only sadness is that I didn't have the convenience of blogging 17 year ago.

Valentines Day

Mason and I started our day making sugar cookies, we went to Mason's Valentines party at our church, then went to Emily and Hannah school parties and at the end of the day Mike surprised me with flowers and a homemade dinner of salmon, steamed veggies and rolls.

Great Valentines Day!


Mike and Mason conversation the other day:

Mike: " Dennis what are you doing in the bathroom?"

Mason: " I'm washing my hands."

Mike: " Dennis stop getting into everything!"

Mason: " Dad, I'm not Dennis.. I'm Buddy!"
