Happy Anniversary to US!!

Two years ago today, on a beach in Florida, I married my best friend!

I could have never imagined how my life would change after we said "I do." Over the past two years, Brian and I have loved, lived, learned and LAUGHED! I laugh every day with him. He is one of the funniest people I know...and even though I don't always like to admit it, he really is funny! :) We have been lucky enough to travel many fun places together. But, no matter if we are traveling or I am beating him at Sequence at home, we have fun! I am so lucky to be married to such a handsome, fun man! I can't wait to start a family with him and am excited to find out what path God takes us down next.

I love you Brian! Happy Anniversary!!

Happy Birthday Kari & Walt

Today is my Uncle Walt's birthday AND my cousin, his daughter, Kari! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the both of you!! :) I searched and searched for a picture of Uncle Walt and found this one from this past 4th of July. :)

Kari has always been very special to me! Thinking back over the years, I realized why I feel such a special bond with her. I was the flower girl in her wedding. She babysat Anitra, April and I when we were little. She was with me when we found out that Grandpa Carl had died. She counseled me through heartbreak in high school. When she had her kids, I then helped to babysit them. She has just always been there. :)

I love that we are close. I love that I can just stop by her house un-announced and we can talk for hours. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how funny she is. Not just funny...hilarious! As in...laugh so hard my stomach hurts and tears roll down my face, funny! And she's thoughtful, caring and so warm-hearted!

So Happy Birthday Kari! Happy Birthday Uncle Walt! I hope you both have a wonderful day!!

April and Brian went to dinner for his birthday, Anitra was inside taking care of Jacinda and Seth and I had snow duty. :) Seth and I both realized how out of shape we are...that's hard work pulling sleds around!! We had fun...and the kids loved it!! :)

Madison's Soccer

Tonight after work, Brian and I met at the indoor soccer place to watch Madison play. Now, I don't know much about soccer, but Brian was yelling like it was our child out there! I took pictures and he "coached" from under his breath. The game ended with Madison scoring a goal! :) Way to go Madison!! :)

My little Cubbie!

The kids still aren't feeling we took turns going to church today so someone could stay home and take care of them. I got the "shift" that included getting them dressed. Well, since it is a little warmer out, I couldn't wait to get Ty's Cubs outfit on him! :) I gave him my "cubbie" bear and my hat.

He loves Senica's baby dolls, so maybe he will start carrying Cubbie instead. You can see in the picture of him with Seth, his medicine was starting to wear off and he wasn't feeling so well again.

Get better soon buddy! Love you!
