We had our youth's Valentino's dinner on Saturday nght and it was a smashing success. However, I was wiped by the time it was over! :-) We had almost 80 folks at our dinner and the kids did fabulous. No one set anything on fire that shouldn't have been one fire (one year we had a girl set her sleeve on fire) so that makes it a good night in my book. My Dad was the official event photographer so if I get some photos from him, I'll share.
Anyway, Travis and I came home Saturday night and flopped about 9 p.m. We got our Law & Order: Season 14 in the mail that day and watched some of it. I made it through two episodes - only because I was eating a huge-mongous salad to stay awake - and slept through the rest. Yesterday we went over to my folks for lunch and then came home and just relaxed some more. Today I'm catching up on loads o' laundry. I hadn't been able to get to my washer for about a week because of all the supplies for the dinner piled on it and I have so much to do around the house.
I'll leave you with this survey stolen from Holly and a Happy Valentine's Day wish. We took Valentine's pictures of Noelle yesterday, but they are also on my Dad's camera - will share when I get them.
