You're the One That I Love...oooh..oooh..oooh

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone out there. I am in a really foul mood so this is perhaps not the best time to be confessing my undying love to my spouse, but since he is so lovable, I will probably get through it without saying one nasty thing.
This post is obviously dedicated to the man of the my dreams. 8 1/2 years ago I met him for the first time in a place that doesn't exist anymore (they tore the building down) and I had no idea that this man would change my life forever. He makes life worth living. Is every day perfect? No. But I would willingly take the bad with the good to be with this man. And the bad really isn't that bad. We hardly quarrel and when we do it is usually about something stupid (like how to spell a word). He makes me laugh every day. He had given my three gorgeous children and another on the way. He is the best father and he helps me all the time around the house. He puts up with my highs and lows and he makes me feel beautiful. He is a spiritual man who leads our family in the gospel. Oh, and did I mention that he is extremely handsome? These are all very general things, but if I had the time I could write down hundreds (at least I hope I could, since he has done that for me many times).
I'm not sure how I feel about this holiday at the moment. Seems like a lot of unnecessary hype. After all, I love Tyler every day. I don't need someone to tell me that I should remember, because he is constantly reminding me through his actions. I hope he knows how special he is to me; how empty life would be without him. I love you honey! Happy Valentine's Day (and all that).

i understand! but, i hope that it will be something my kids can look forward to - someday that i can use as a "fun" day, so they behave!! you did a great job with the cookies and i really hope you feel better soon. in some ways i am glad we have reminders to "love" someone, or mother's day - but i agree, it is too focuses of material things and not making everyday a day of "luv". you are great - hope you guys are drying out down there! no more snow - it is time for spring!!!

I am the same way. we never end up doing much on v-day because it gets too crazy and then I can't even enjoy the whole chocolate aspect of it but I totally loved it as a kid to get/give all the valentines/candy. Making it was just so fun to make a box for all the card deliveries.

Tyler is pretty funny. We miss him as our home teacher, he was the most faithful we have ever had. I didn't know you were pregnant! How far along...dare I it a boy?
