Valentine's Dance

On the 13th our ward had a family Valentine's Dance. The Activities Committee in our ward did a great job planning the activity. The gym looked awesome. They had white lights up on the ceiling with white tulle draped over them. There were yummy nummies and also a place to get your pictures taken.

The Young Women also had a little booth as a fundraiser for Girl's Camp. Earlier in the month they sent around sign-ups to request to have a Valogram be sent to your spouse and kids. I signed up for the kids and Brandon to each get one. Brandon also signed up for me to receive one as well. Each little Valogram had a message on it for the intended person. Emmy's favorite part was the nummies. She could have cared less about her Valogram.Hyrum was so excited to see all of his friends and ran, danced, played all night long with them. Below is a picture of him dancing to one of his favorite songs, "I Like to Move It, Move It!" The other picture is of him dancing with his friend Lexi. We would only see him when he would sneak up to the refreshment table to grab a treat before he would run off again.Jenna, Lexi, Hyrum and Billie


Dylan, Devin, Hyrum
Emmy and Ben had a difficult time at first. They were very clingy and wanted to be held. I think it was because they were nervous for how many people were there and didn't feel comfortable at the start of the dance. However, after awhile they really got their grove on.

Emmy and especially Ben like the older kids in the ward (9, 10 etc.) those older kids tried to break dance in the middle of the gym and Ben and Emmy were trying to mimic their moves. It was so cute, Ben really got into it.Below is a picture of Emmy when she was running, dancing around in a circle. So happy and so adorable. Emmy also got a chance to do a little dancing with a cute little boy named Tucker (Lexi's brother). They were so cute dancing together. She ran up to him and wanted to dance with him.Trying out a turn with a little help from Tucker's Dad.Each kid had a chance to dance with Mom and dad more then once. It was lots of fun! Below is a picture of Emmy bringing my shoes, while I was dancing with Ben, since I took them off when my feet started to hurt. Anyone want to guess what her mouth is full of?...Nummies!Brandon and I also enjoyed dancing together. We were a little rusty in our skills, technique and memory of dance steps, but we still had a great time. I would love to take dance lessons again.

sounds like you had a lot of fun at the dance. I love the ones with the kids dancing. Oh and Mckenna's wrist is 4 and 3/4s says Cameron. And she has a lot of pink and brown or it could be something summery and fun! I am excited to get it.

Looks like a ton of fun. What a great ward you have. That is so good to be involved too. I loved the videos. Esp the "Endless Love" one. You can tell that all your babies love you so much. How fun. Hyrum and Dylan were way cute too!
