Happy Valentine's Day

Kristyn and I hosted the 5th Annual Father Daughter Valentine's Banquet for the Chapel Men on Monday night. We started the event after Kristyn gave me the idea from something similar that she did with her dad as a girl. It has become a huge success. Every year we are in a larger location, and this year we had 160 people attend, including several grandfathers. I have a wonderful lady who does all the decorations (see the Teddy bear table below) and we take portraits and frame them for the girls as well. The highlight was hearing about one table where a recently adopted girl from the Ukraine broke down in tears as her new dad talked about how much he loved her and how proud he was of her.

Addy has to be 8 to attend, so here she is with us as we got ready. She went out to dinner with Phyllis and Louis Leffler and their small group.

Here is the picture from last year as well to reminisce.
