.... valentine's day .....

will you be my valentine?
check one:
___ yes
___no
___maybe
___ask again next year

i hope that you have someone to love on valentine's day ... and i hope you remember to tell them and show them how much you adore them .... and i hope they remember to do the same!

little.e.beck.artist made me a bouquet of pipe cleaner flowers for valentine's day .... as well as cards for all of us with very dear pictures ... in all, i think i got five different valentine's from her ... once she got to making them, she was having so much fun that she just kept going .... 

girl.beck.artist painted for me ..... the quote on there says .... smile. it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart .... i didn't know that quote ... and i especially love that she knew i love quotes and found this one just for me, just for today .... she gave everyone else chocolate bars ..... i'd have been ok with that too ... but this was better ....boy.beck.artist made me a card on the computer ... he says he loves me ... i'll keep it forever ...

and what did mr.e.beck.artist make me? well... he made me happy .... like he always does .. but this time with flowers and a small boxed gift ... 

and what did i make everyone? ... i made them all fat and happy with chocolate fondu .... we dipped in angel food cake, pound cake, strawberries, red apples, green apples, cheez its, and marshmallows .... the marshmallows were a late decision and came to the table after this picture .... we didn't eat all of the fondu or strawberries (or angel food cake) ... so now there are chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge to enjoy tomorrow ... guarantee that's what the two girls will ask for, for breakfast ... i'll say yes .... but pretend to be astonished that they'd ask for such decadence ....

i gave them all valentine surprises too .... 

and ... for the record ... i think valentine's day should always be on a sunday .....
i might go so far as to say that i love valentine's day best .... very low expectations .... with grand happy results ... no fretting about it before hand like christmas gifts and shopping ... no worry it's going to rain out the fireworks like 4th of july ... plus the fourth of july is such a sweaty holiday ... and thanksgiving ... well ... that's a good one ... but too much cooking for my preferences .... and easter ... well ... easter might be as good as valentine's now that i think of it ... i'll tell you in a month or two ..

but ......valentine's ..... i just love it .....happy valentine's day to you and yours ...
