Valentines in April?/ San Valentin en abril?

I forgot to post our valentine's adventure, so here it is! We decided to make Valentine's day a bit more special this year (mainly for Laneah). Aaron and I went on a date sans our princess and we had a blast. Thanks to my wonderful sis-in-law Anna. We ate our favorite Chinese food and then saw a movie at the movie theater.

Olvide compartir nuestra aventura del dia de San Valentin, aqui les va. Decidimos que lo hariamos un poco especial mas por Laneah. Aaron y yo tuvimos una cita sin la princesa y nos divertimos a lo grande. Gracias a mi cunada maravillosa Anna por cuidar a Laneah ese dia. Comimos comida china y luego fuimos al cine.

But Valentine's without Laneah is just not complete! I wanted something that would involve her more and make her excited for Valentines. We decorated the house with hearts, bought paper plates with heart decoration and our menu had a heart theme as well. I found this great, and easy recipe for pizza (chicken fajita heart shaped pizza) and heart shaped pink rice krispies. Laneah loves rice krispies and Aaron is a pizza lover.

Pero el dia de San Valentin sin Laneah no esta completo! Queria algo que la involucre a ella y la emocione por el dia festivo. Decoramos la casa con corazones de papel, compramos platos descartables con corazones y el menu tenia corazones por todos lados tambien. Encontre una receta facil y buena para hacer una pizza de pollo estilo fajita. De postre tuvimos una mezcla de un cereal de arroz mezclado con bonbon derretido (que se llama rice krispies aca). A Laneah le encanta los rice krispies y Aaron muere por la pizza.

Everything was so yummy!! We had a lot of fun and we had Anna over as well. Valentine's day is not just for couples, but the whole family. I'm looking forward to next year's Valentines Day fun.

Todo estuvo delicioso. Nos divertimos mucho e invitamos a Anna para que disfrute con nosotros tambien. El dia de San Valentin no es solo para las parejas, pero para TODA la familia. Estamos emocionados de que llegue nuestro proximo dia de San Valentin.








Un dia perfecto/a perfect day!


Si hay mucho que actualizar, pero sera para la proxima. Laneah y Yo tuvimos un dia perfecto y nos gustaria compartirles aquella experiencia.

Yes, there is much to say and catch up, but It'll be another post. Laneah and I had a perfect day and we'd like to share it with you.

Nos vamos a mudar y empacar parece lo unico que hacemos en casa. Entonces para cambiar la rutina, decidimos que Laneah y yo ibamos a tener una cita (nosotras solas) en lugar muy especial, la manzana del templo de Salt Lake City.

We are moving, and packing seems to be the only thing we do around the house. Therefore, to change the pace a bit, we decided that Laneah and I would go on a date to a special place....temple square in Salt Lake.

La pasamos super, super, super bien. Laneah estaba tan atenta, reverente y feliz. Hablamos de los templos y lo que sucede alli. Estaba fascinada con todos lo que podia ver, y los comerciales.

We had a great time. she was very attentive, reverent and just happy. We talked about temples and how special these places are. She was fascinated with everything we could do, and the church ads.

Luego fuimos a ver la estatua de Cristo. Laneah me dijo, Jesus esta feliz. Que lugar tan sagrado es la manzana del templo. Estoy agradecida de haber servido una mision ahi. Se que la mision no es para todos, pero que agradecida estoy que yo tuve ese privilegio. Ese dia fue perfecto. Siempre quize ir con laneah sola y decirle lo que aprendi y lo especial que la manzana del templo es para mi. Que alegria me da haberlo hecho antes que nos vayamos!

Then we went to see the Christus and Laneah said: Jesus is happy. Temple square is a sacred place. I'm grateful for having served a mission there. I know missions are not for everyone, but I'm glad I had a privilege to serve one. It was a perfect day! I've meaning to go with Laneah alone and tell her what I learned there and how special Temple square is specially to me.
