~15 Years Ago Today...~

I married the man of my dreams!!! We were high school sweethearts.
We met in the back set of a car.
Get your head out of the gutters. My parents read this blog.
We met during drivers ed class in the back set of the car.
What were you thinking? LOL!!! I just love telling that story. Hee!Hee!
We married at the age of 20. Yea we were young but we would not change a thing. We have learned a lot over the years about life and each other. Our love has grown stronger and deeper.
I love that man of mine. Not only does he take care of me, puts up with me, he even cleans and cooks. Now that is what a girls needs. His Mama raised one heck of a man!!!

Sorry about the bad pic. I just took a pic of our wedding pic on the wall.
We don't have any big plans to go out tonight since it is a school night but Kevin has planned something for us this weekend. Our babysitters are high school age girls and I don't like to have them out late on a school night.
Look what Cassie did for our anniversary. She colored a beautiful picture for us.....
What a lovely gift. Kevin found our little present last night just before we went to bed. So that is what I had to look forward to this morning. Cleaning crayon off the walls. Happy Anniversary to me!!

I could not get a good pic of the walls because they are a dark green. As she walked up the stairs she used a red crayon to make a mark on the wall, all the way up. WD-40 worked wonders!!! We both thought she should help clean up some how. I didn't want to chance her putting her hands in her mouth with WD-40 on them so I made her sit next to me as I cleaned. But she did use a wippy to clean off the table. I love the way she holds her mouth to clean. She takes that after her Daddy.

Cassie is not the only little artist in our house. Aundrea did the same thing when she was a bit younger than Cassie. Here is a scrapbook page I did for the event.
For all my hard work I'm going to the premiere of NEW MOON tonight with some friends.
Yeah, I can't wait. I hate that it lands on our anniversary but Kevin and I discussed it and well we could not go out tonight anyway so he said he would stay home with the kids so I can go. I tell ya, WHAT A MAN, WHAT A MAN, WHAT MIGHTY GOOD MAN.
Plus, he can't stand crowds and there will be crowds. Mostly screaming women. He would not be able to stand that. So he is taking one for the team.
Thanks Hun!! You are the best!!

~Fall Fun 2009~

First I have to thank you so much for all the wonderful comments!!! The girls loved hearing about them. No, Donna I have not thought ahead to Christmas, but you have me thinking!
This is the view from our back door. I love the beautiful colors of Fall. Now most of the leaves are gone. It has been so windy here.
I just love this picture. I really shows what a great big sister Aundrea is with her protective arms around her little sister and her first best friend, Elliott.

Kevin got out the leaf blower and piled up some leaves for the girls to play in, so I took the opportunity to take some Fall pics. They are such hams.

I love how I can get action shots with our awesome camera.

And of course, a family pic. Hope you enjoyed more pics of my family.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

~2009 Halloween Costumes~

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween. We did!!!
First I had to show you my one and only Halloween craft project. I have seen these on blogs and thought I can do that. So I went rummaging through Kevin's wood pile and found some scrap wood to use. My sweet husband cut, sanded and stained the wood for me. Then I added all the embellishments. I love them!!

Here are my sweet girls!! As you can tell Aundrea was an American Indian named Princess Wildflower and Cassie was a Ladybug Princess. Don't you think they are just the cutest kids in the world?!!! NO, I'm not bias.

Yes, that is my handy work. I made the wings and skirt. I saw the fabric at Hobby Lobby and thought of a ladybug. I asked Cassie if she wanted to be a ladybug and she said Yes. I could not wait to make it. Then one day she says she wants to be a Princess so I said How about a Ladybug Princess. She agreed. I think the costume turned out stinkin' cute!!

Here is Aundrea doing her Indian dance. I was going to make her costume too but time got away from me and we were getting ready to go to West Virginia and I just didn't have time to do a good job so I bought this one in the stores. Aundrea was fine with that and she loved her costume. She makes the best Indian with her dark hair, eyes and skin tone. So cute!!!!

Here they are before trick-or-treating. Aundrea was helping Cassie take flight. We had great weather. It was a little chilly but the girls had a blast. A couple of times I had to remind Cassie to say Thank you. One time I said to Cassie "What do you say (after getting candy)"? Cassie said "What did I get"? Yeah, finding out what candy you get in so much more important than your manners. What was I thinking?
Hope you enjoyed seeing the pics.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment. I love to know you were here.
Have a great day!!!
