Sharing The Love

This was how this little Hansen family spent their Valentines Day...

The night before we had heart shaped waffles for dinner. This was actually not planned. Well, the waffle part was planned, but our waffle iron only makes heart shaped waffles. It just ended up working well with the Valentines Day being the next day!

Daddy got Atalia a little heart-shaped chocolate sucker for Valentines Day! She was thrilled!!

Tali eating that chocolate sucker! It helped that it was on a stick, it didn't end up being as big of a mess. Maybe I'll start feeding her all of her food on a stick. Just kidding, that would be a lot of work.

Kisses for Daddy!

I got James a puzzle of a picture of us together on the day he asked me to marry him. Then on the back side of each puzzle piece I wrote something that I love about him or one of my top favorite memories with him.

This is the picture I used for the puzzle

James got me chocolate-covered strawberries from a really nice chocolate shop close by.

And some love coupons for some fun dates.

We had FHE and talked about Heavenly Father and His love for us. We made little heart crowns to go along with the lesson.

I guess we decided we needed a little culture in our lives and went to an art gallery.

We decided to kind of make a game out of it... that we would pick out the one piece of art that we would buy if we could (well, it's kind of a game, right?)

James picked this one.

Then he changed it to this.

I couldn't find one that I would want to buy. Not that there weren't any that I didn't like or think was amazing, just not any that were my style that I could see hanging in my home. I guess that's just me taking the game very literal lol. One time, my brother, Jon told me that you should never buy a piece of art unless it's something you can't live without. Now, whenever I see some art I always ask myself that question. I think I'm a picky person.

We did take-out that night for dinner, from The Macaroni Grill. Mmmmnnn... it was yummy! And we ate some chocolate silk pie for dessert and watched a chick flick.

It was a nice Hansen family Valentines Day!


  1. There was only one thing missing from your Valentines Day. Me!! I know you miss me being there for every anniversary and V-day!

  2. Wow I remember that young couple in the sunset photo! I know it hasn't been THAT long ago, but you two already look older (in a good way)! :)

  3. Oh and can I just say that those chocolate-covered strawberries look absolutely scrumptious?!
