Valentines Day

I hope you have all had a really great day.
Our day began very early. We left the house at 7:00 and went to Calais. Dh had to do financial stuff and an audit with the ward financial secretary, the Bishop, and some other people. They began at 9:00. Then they went to Sacrament where Dh gave a great impromptu talk. Back to work after Sacrament until 4:00. That was a lot of work and took quite a bit of time.
We finally left church about 4:15 and drove for 2 hours for a Valentine's Soiree with our friends the Janda's. We had such a fun time together, eating, talking, telling stories, and laughing. We finally arrived home shortly before midnight.
I love their lovely home( a former parsonage). Here is a picture of the front of it. Kaye was wearing her sari because it is pink. She looked very nice.

The table setting was so pretty with little Valentines cards at each place and hearts scattered about.

After appetizers and sparkling peach drink we had a delicious dinner.
It started with shrimp in an avacado with a tasty sauce.

Then we had Coquilles St. Jacques, Cauliflower au Gratin, and green beans.
This was followed by salad and then an assortment of cheeses.
Dessert was mango or framboise sorbet and chocolates.
It was all so yummy.

Food looks delish! you are getting to eat some super yummy stuff on your mission- that must be payback for all the good food you seem to constantly be feeding the other missionaries-

Our tournament was in the same place as your grandson- but I think it was a different tournament - Ours was the President's Cup- There were so many things going on this past weekend down there- two or three soccer tournies, softball and baseball tournies, Parade of homes, gun show, plus a couple of more that I can't remember now. It was impossible to get a hotel- thank goodness we had family to visit-
