Nothing says "I Love You" more than....

For all you lovers out there that may have missed Valentines, the big day was last Sunday. Our home was filled with so much love, that we shared with others. Those of you that know me, know that for the past 1 1/2 months I have been working 60-70 hours a week. So last Saturday when I got off work, I just wanted to go home and relax. No chance of this. Courtney was home for the weekend and had big plans. She invited friends, and Kandace invited friends to come over and celebrate Valentines with their version of a "Love" party. Courtney made homemade pizza for everyone, then gave the group a package of paper and scissors to cut out hearts to go give people they love "Heart Attacks" Courtney made homemade cookies while everyone else cut out and decorated hearts. Luckily for me, my true love called to see what was going on, and came home early with a bouquet of flowers and took me to dinner. We all had a wonderful Valentines. Here is just one of the houses that the group gave a "Heart Attack" to. Many homes were treated to their "Heart Attacks" and a plate of fresh made cookies.
Most of the kids spent the night, and Sunday morning before they all left Courtney and Bridget made "Heart" panacakes for everyone.

This is Bridget cuting out the panacakes into hearts. Courtney say's it was the best Valentines ever! Although I was very tired, it was fun to see all the kids having such a good time. Loved having all the fun at our house. Thanks Court, Love you!

Oh, and while I was downloading pictures I came across this one from my birthday. Yep...I turned 29 again. As soon as my kids can beat me in a race, I will turn I really will be 29 forever! :)

More from the Philippines

Cameron sent us some more pictures this week. We really enjoy being able to see where he is and what he is up to. This is him at a baptism in his last area before he was transfered. What a great group.Elder Leavitt always has the goofy face. This is an inactive family that he is teaching.
Elder Leavitt with his mission president and his companion, his mission president came to the baptism to support them.
On his P-Day he went for a hike with the other Elders. Again...a goofy face. We can see that he has lost some weight in this "King of the Hill" picture.
The group of missionaries that took the hike. We love that Cameron is the one always being a goof ball. Hope he never changes!
Here is Elder Leavitt standing out in the middle of a rice field.
And here he is trying to walk his new pet Caribo. He looks worried, but the Caribo looks even more concerned. Hope they were able to make friends!
Cameron was transfered a couple of weeks ago to another area, he said the area that he is now in, is alot more rural. We just sent him a CARE package with alot of his favorite snacks and new shoes, belt and seasonings for his rice. He was very happy to get his package. He is having a great adventure, and is learning more of the language each day. He said he still struggles alot to understand the language, but everyday learns something new. Keep those pictures and letters coming Elder Leavitt! You are loved and supported by your family and friends!
