Any excuse will do....

In our family, we use any excuse to have a party!! On Valentine's Day we all got dressed up, decorated the house and ate a special tea (including a cake which Danella baked). I do have photos of the decorations which I will hopefully post soon.

We see Valentine's Day as a day to show each other how much we appreciate and love each and every member of our family, and celebrate it with a party! :) It was an awesome evening. The following photos were taken after tea.

All the girls are in pink and the guys are dressed up, too!

Caleb, Danella, Johnny, Sophie and Ben just before tea. If you look carefully you can see some Valentine's decorations in the background.

Did you do anything to celebrate the occasion?


  1. On Valentines Day I was traveling across the South Island as part of a Support Crew for the Coast to Coast. :)

    1. Sounds like fun. How did it go?

    2. It went well! :) It was good fun. We had to get up at 4:15 one morning and carry our competitor's kayaks across a freezing cold ford up to almost our knees, in the dark. This was my favourite part of being part of a support crew. :)

  2. This looks great! All the children in your family are so blessed to grow up in such a lovely family environment

    1. Thank you for commenting, Mrs Velzel! I love my family and thank the Lord every day for my siblings and parents. I know not everyone has such a wonderful family as I do and I feel blessed to be part of it!!
