So NICE to be flying off in April--snow ‘N ICE will be long forgotten. A piece of Niece--a slice of nice in life a la Mediterranean....et Paris avec tu, ma cheri dans la Rue de Braque--will we ever come bock?! With Great Love, PBS

chb: It’s ironic that instead of being with you, I’m upstairs writing this at the 11th hour. But here goes- six months from now (August 2014) we will be preparing to move into our first real house. And that’s it! Our wishes and plans have gotten simpler over the years to the point that we no longer make a list. Because we already have everything we need (and we quit smoking while ago). We have a solid marriage, we have the best little girl we could ever dream up... now if we just had more closet space! But seriously, we’ve learned what’s important, haven’t we? And what’s fragile. I just want you and Jules, every Valentine’s Day, forever. Happy 9th! kho, blah blah blah, GW

Hey Julia, it’s Mommy. I just want to let you know that being home with you for the last 2.5 years has been the best. You’ve been my sidekick through it all and I hope you will remember even half of it when you’re grown. (But if you don’t, I wrote it all down.) Your silliness and excitement and stories remind me that the world is a beautiful place full of princesses and unicorns. Being naked isn’t embarrassing, you can’t brush your teeth without a pillow, and every horse should be named Delbert. Keep being you, BaBa. We’re all better off because of it. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lance. Love Amy, Domino and Jack.

Fannie, I would like to wish you a Very Happy Valentine Day. Warm Regards, Chet

Happy Valentine Day Ariel, wishing yo a sweet day. Chet
