Valentine's Day: Then and Now

Five years ago, I was sitting in a class at BYU, 
just a few weeks pregnant with Talmage, 
and completely exhausted.
I was on the verge of falling asleep (as usual) when the professor said something about his computer being hacked
and this image appeared on the huge projector screen:


The class let out a loud, "Aaaawwwww!"
and I was incredibly glad I hadn't yet fallen asleep
since the professor asked me to raise my hand
and everyone was now staring at me.

As a child, I always loved Valentine's Day
because we would wake up to a nice note and small gift
left for us by my mom.
I've continued the tradition with my boys,
and they have been so excited about it!
Yesterday Talmage got a sticker from storytime at the library
and he kept causing problems with it,
so I finally took it away and threw it in the trash.
He was very upset and sobbed,
"I just don't know what to do now that my feelings are BROKEN!"

This morning, after he woke up and discovered his Valentine from me, we had a conversation something like this:
Talmage:  Do you know what the best part of my Valentine is?
Me:  What?
Talmage:  Now my feelings are fixed!
Phew.

I made Sam a nice breakfast for him to wake up to
as part of his Valentine's gift.
He wakes up at 5,
so it's a good thing I could depend on Lincoln
to wake me up at 4 to get it ready.
We look forward to our evening's festivities!

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
I'm glad to celebrate ALL the loved ones in my life.
