Valentine's Day...

For those of you who don't know, Keith and I got engaged
on February 14, 2003, so Valentine's Day is extra special
for us!  I know some people might think that's kind of cheesy,
but we think it's great!  Why not make a day about love even
more about love!

Today I was determined to make our day special, even though
 we won't be together this evening.  I made lasagna, caesar
salad, garlic & cheese filled French bread (from scratch!),
and strawberry pie for dessert.  I also wanted the table to
look special, so I put out some pictures of Keith and me from
our dating days, a wedding picture, and some candles.  

We enjoyed our short time together very much, and it felt really
good to do something special for Keith!  He's such a great guy,
and he works so hard, I sometimes feel guilty that I'm at home
all the time, and not out working.

I hope you all enjoyed your day very much, and did something
special for the one you love most!

Keith and I go to Bible Classes at church, which is kind of like Bible School, just more in depth. Because it was Valentine's Day, we couldn't find a babysitter, so I stayed home with Rowan. It kind of sucked that it was on Valentine's Day, but hey, that's how it goes sometimes!

Thanks! That's quite the complement coming from 'Mr. Olive Garden'!

Thank you!

Stacey ~ don't EVER feel guilty for being at home raising Rowan - he's too precious to leave for others to raise. And besides, what man wouldn't love his wife to be at home when he can see what a wonderful mother she is, and still has time to give him this kind of attention!! :) Good on you Stacey, you've made me/us proud.

I totally agree with your mom!
I couldn't of let somebody else raise my kids either.
You are doing the most important job ever, and please don't let yourself have those feelings of guilt. I admit sometimes I feel that way now, but only because all of my boys are in school.
Enjoy the time you have with Rowan, and the upcoming baby, the time goes by far too fast!
