ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The South Valley’s king of Valentine’s Day is back at it. For the past few years, KOB 4 showed you how Lonnie Anderson always goes big for his wife Anne.

From oversized piñatas to art exhibits, Anderson tried to make his valentine international this year. He attempted to get it projected on the Matterhorn in Switzerland, tried to get the London symphony to play his wife a song.

He even tried to get a light-up drone show over downtown Albuquerque, but when all his big ideas fell through, he went back to the basics.

"I took branches that were laying around my yard and around the neighborhood. I fastened them together to create Anne’s likeness – and I put in the tree," said Anderson.

He says it’s about 15 feet tall and it took way longer than he originally planned for, but it’s a nice way for his wife to enjoy the sunset.

Bringing it back to basics to create something for his loved one.
