My Funny Valentine!

Don't you love the sweet smile?!

I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!! He is SUCH a poser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahaha!

Rockin the "Mom" shirt! Love it!

Steve got me these beautiful roses! (And two necklaces, and a bracelet, and a shirt, and dinner and a movie!!! Yes, I'm spoiled! He's so good to me!)

Huge grin! I love his big hippo smile!!!

Ok, so I kinda look like I'm glaring at the camera in this one, but I promise I'm not!

Well, this is the last of the "first" holidays for Grayson -- his first Valentine's Day!! We celebrated by making heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast, going to Costco, and giving lots of hugs and kisses all day! :) Grayson showed his love by wearing his awesome "Mom" shirt! Then my WONDERFUL mother watched baby Gray so Steve and I could go on a real, live, honest-to-goodness DATE!!! Thanks again, Mom! We don't really get to go on many dates lately, and I've kinda been a little sad about that fact! So it was SUCH a luxury to be able to have some couple time!! :D We went and saw "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" and laughed the entire time! It was hilarious! Ok, not the greatest film in cinematic history, but DANG entertaining!! Then we went to Ye Lion's Den -- one of our favorite restaurants! SOOOOOO tasty! I got the filet mignon, because hey! It's Valentine's Day! If there's one day a year you can splurge on the filet mignon, it's V-day, right?! :) If you've never eaten at Lion's Den, you really MUST go! Looking at the menu, you may think it's kinda pricey, but it's an all-inclusive dinner -- you get drinks, a relish tray (with the yummiest spinach dip ever!), scones with raspberry honey butter that are to DIE for, soup/salad/or fruit cup, then you get your entree, AND dessert is included! LOVE IT! :D We had such a great time talking and laughing and holding hands -- all without my little clingy monkey baby in between us! Amazing! Of course, it was fun to come home and snuggle my baby again afterwards! What a perfect day! Thank you to my boys for making it so great! (and my mom for making it possible!:) (I just realized we never got any pictures of me and my wonderful husband! Oh dear! He was so cute today, too!!!) :P

Sounds like an awesome V-day! When I lived closer to Ogden, I would buy a whole pint of their Spinach Dip and just take it home and eat it all! YUM!

How lucky you are to have such a wonderful Mom!! And how lucky your Mom is to have you so close so she can babysit. Steve is very thoughtful, you have it very good I must say, but you are worth it.

Sounds like such a fun day! That couple time is so much more important once you have kids! I'm glad you were able to get away! Oh, and I can't believe Grayson is almost a year!
