Love You Much Valentine’s Day Card

Well Scripted Love You Much Valentines Day Card Hello Friends – Welcome To Sunday –  We had a family night yesterday.  The family got together and went bowling.  Of course the girls had to bring a few friends.  Kayleigh was the star last night, she couldn't throw anything bad.  She had several strikes.  The rest of us danced to the music and just had fun.  Poor PaPa, he can't bowl because of his arms, so he sits back and watches us girls be silly.
