15 Years!!

Today Tim and I celebrate 15 years of marriage together!  I actually went through our wedding memory box this morning, and drifted down memory lane reading letters, speeches, lists, etc, from that special day - it was lovely and sweet!  

I wrote a longer post last year, but just wanted write another short note of thankfulness to the Lord for  His hand upon us, keeping us together, and even growing stronger each year.  I don't take this for granted; I feel very blessed!  Again, I don't have an anniversary card for him. Last year, I made a pavlova, which he agreed was far better than a card.  This year, I'm getting ready to make a pecan pie.  I think he'll be okay with that, too.  =)

Tim, you light up my life!  You are truly my best friend, and I love you so much!  Thank you for loving and cherishing me like you promised - I am a very blessed woman!  Happy Anniversary, with all my love!

Happy Birthday, Nathaniel!!

Our little man has turned FOUR!!  Our funny, serious, ticklish, roaring, teasing, car/truck/sea animal loving, big hugging, pink enduring, sweet-natured Nathaniel.  I love hearing, "I wuv you, Mommy!  Sweet dweams!" each night from this little boy.  He can scream as loudly as the girls can, and has no problem donning a princess crown, but his go-to is cars (especially tow-trucks) and/or his plastic sea animals that he spends hours playing with each day.  Nata prefers to sleep with one of the girls at night if he can, and it makes no difference to him who it is (although, if it's Alisa or Gwennie, they're usually removed within a 10 min period to go to sleep in their own beds).  This past year he has especially latched on to teen aged boys to play with.  We have a few at our hall he enjoyed spending time with, but if we're going on a trip somewhere, he goes through a list of names wondering if one his "fwends" will be there.

Nathaniel, we are so thankful for the gift of you!  You bring such joy and variety to our family, and we love you so very much!  We pray the Lord will save you and direct you in His way!  Happy 4th Birthday, Buddy Boy!  XO
