Celebrating 17 Years with my wonderful husband.

I can't believe it's been 17 years!
I met Michael 17 and a half years ago. I had a long time boyfriend from high school and we broke up. Of course I thought it was the end of the world. (I was only remember those days, right?) My friend at work said "You are going to go out with this guy that my boyfriend works with."
Michael calls me on the phone, we had never met, but his friend said I was a brunette and I guess Michael liked brunettes. Our first blind date was on July 4, 1991. My friends laughed at us because we were already holding hands on our first date. Michael actually went home that night and told his parents that he met a girl.....and she was the one. He knew he was going to ask me to marry him. (I'm sure his parents were surprised!! As was his sister whom he talked to all the time and this was the first she had heard of me.----that's because we just met!)
So our first date was July 4, 1991. He asked me to marry him on August 16, 1991 just 1 month after we met. We were married 6 months later on February 15, 1992!
I have to say each year just keeps getting better and better. I thank God for him everyday. Michael is truely an amazing husband who continues to want to make me happy on a daily basis, is a wonderful Dad and the best friend I could ever ask for. Because of him I have 4 beautiful blessings and can honestly say "I live a blessed life."
Here's to many more years!

Catching up in February!

Kaila is taking a photo journalism class at school. Her first assignment was to take pictures of people. Here is 1/2 of our kids on the street! They are all great kids and have fun playing with Kaila. Kaila babysits them all too!

Next is the 100th day of school for Sean! February 5th. He had to create a board that had 100 things on it. So I took him to the craft section of Walmart and he decided on "googly eyes". I decided on the black with orange (Michael was happy with it too...GO POKES!) Pictures below are of Sean and his favorite teacher and his favorite school friend!

Then on February 9th the school had a 50's day. This is my little Fonzie!

Valentine's Day parties at school...Happy Early Valentine's Day! I have always sent in treats for each special party the kids have at school. They just love being able to give things to their friends. I was trying to keep the cost down since all 4 are in school now!! After Christmas I found "Spree" candy canes. (they were colorful and sweet, not peppermint.) I bought 144 candy canes total to make Candy Cane hearts! Cost to make 72 candy canes was $2.47....can't beat that!

Sean and Brett took enough for the class and teachers, and Kaila got a few too. Brandon took fun dips. Everyone left the house happy campers today and came home with a ton of new candy and treats.
Sunday the 15th will be Michael and I's "17th" Wedding Anniversary! WOO HOO! Still going strong. I'm looking forward to many more with him.
Alright that wraps up half of February.

Kids Favorite Hoodies

I have been meaning to share this with everyone for awhile!
For Christmas Sean and Brett each recieved two hoodies from their Uncle Steve, Aunt Bethany, Cousin Anna who live in PA and Cousin Mason who is in OK.

They are the cutest things ever! I have had so many people ask me where did they get them. They both love wearing them to school and to the store (hood fully zipped over their faces too....we get alot of stares and giggles.) Look closely...You can see Sean's eyes in the correct spot in the Red jacket. Now look at where Brett's eyes are in the blue jacket.
