Happy Valentine's Day

It is Valentine's Day and I am completely pooped. We have been going nonstop since our feet hit the floor this A.M. We started out with basketball games and errands to get things ready for our traditional "love" day celebration. I made something for each of the kids for their room. It was fun to make but VERY difficult to hang. You'll understand when you see the photos below. I owe my friend Regina big time for all her help. Thank you Regina!! The reactions of the kids was definitely worth it all. We stayed with our usual broiled fish, wild rice, and green beans with almonds for dinner. Then we finished it off with a delicious chocolate fondue. Yummy! The funniest part of our special evening was when we all decided to decorate marshmallows with the other fondue ingredients. We then voted on the one everyone liked the best. Leave it to the Kempf's to make a game/competition out of a white puffy sweet. It was a very special day and I hope everyone else made some fun memories also. Enjoy the photos.

Love is in the Air

I can hardly believe that I have a blog. I have been wanting to do this for quite some time and leave it to my twin and best friend Cherri to walk me through this process. Who knew it would be this easy? Well I sure didn't. As it turns out the timing of this blog is quite perfect as my favorite holiday along with Thanksgiving is Valentines Day. Everything about it thrills me. The love I have for God, my man, my kids, friends, and family gets me going like no other. I go all out letting those I love know it. Whether I am cooking our tradional "favorite" meal, making a crafty treat, or preparing chocolate fondue, I make sure that LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!!!
