The Leftovers and Some Love

Well in continued to snow last Thursday night and Friday and everything was so beautiful!

But here are the not so beautiful leftovers. The snow was too heavy for our Texas tree limbs! Marcus spent the day on Friday with his chainsaw in the backyard.

We are waiting for everything to be picked up this week by a tree company.
We are only 136 on the waiting list!

And here are the leftovers of the Freedom Tower!
Marcus was surprised it left a red and blue mark on our grass??!!!

I was not surprised.

And now some LOVE!
I don't know if I have mentioned it before, but every Sunday after church we eat with Marcus's family. We all live close by, but it is a good time to catch up with each other. We each take turns cooking on a Sunday, so we just have to do it once a month.
This Sunday was my sister in law, Lisa's turn. She went all out for Valentine's Day:

I think I ate most of these chocolate covered strawberries!

I need to go over there one day and just take pics of her whole house and share them with you. It is beautiful.

Marcus and I went to dinner on Friday night to celebrate Valentine's Day. We thought we would be the crowds, but we were wrong. He gave me some beautiful flowers (that I didn't get a picture of) and a gift card to a maternity store. I thought that was so thoughtful!
I guess he noticed none of my pants fit anymore.

And I commissioned my friend Jennifer Towery to paint these pictures of our dogs for Marcus. Because, let's be honest, next to me these dogs are the loves of his life!

I think they turned out so cute and Marcus loved them!

I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!

The snow was beautiful to look at but sorry you have all those limbs down now. My husband's family and mine do the same thing on Sundays after church.We take turns fixing and eat at each others houses and catch up. We'll definately miss that when we move to Dallas. Love the dog pics.
