Early Valentine's Day/Anniversary Gift...

From my kids!  With Tomorrow being Valentine's Day...and it is also my 17th wedding anniversary.  My daughter wanted to give us our Valentine's/Anniversary gift early since she has to go to school tomorrow.

This is what my husband and I got....I absolutely LOVE homemade gifts!

We got a HUGE card and my daughter baked us a heart shaped cake! My daughter, Aimee and my 6 year old son David made the card and they all signed it.
Front of the card
Inside the card!  They ran out of Alphabet stickers so they left out the "e" in anniversary.
The back of the card....The top 2 pictures are of my older kids.  It is their Kindergarten pictures.  The bottom 2 are my littlest.  They are around 3 or 4 years old in the pictures.
And the cake.  And yes, I was married on Valentine's Day!

Have a wonderful Day!

Thursday 13-"S" Words

This week I thought I would share 13 things about me that begin with the letter 'S'!
  1. Shy~I am extremely shy.  In “Real Life” it takes me while to be comfortable with people.  Usually a good 6 or so months before I come out of my proverbial shell.
  2. Sister~I am a sister.  I have one little sister.  I have always called her my baby sister and always will.  She is one person that will always have my love and support no matter what.  She is also a whopping 8 years younger than me.
  3. Six-~The number of people in my family or Seven(my favorite number) if you count the Cat.
  4. Sons~I have three of these.  Daniel-Jacob, Zachary and David.  I never dreamed that I would be the mother of 3 son’s.   Each one of them brings something totally different to our family.  People say you can tell they are brother.  People think they all look just a like.  
  5. Sing~This is something that the women in my family enjoy doing.  I enjoyed singing since I was a little girl.  Music is/was a HUGE deal in my family.  My sister sings.  My mother sings.  My dad can sing when and if he wants to.  All my uncles have WONDERFUL voices.  And I have a Aunt that sings beautifully as well.  Aimee also sings and I am bias but she is getting pretty good.
  6. Sentimental~Oh my gosh, how this word descibes me to a T.  I am a very sentimental person.  When I even touch or look at a recipe book….I think of my grandma.  Sometimes Aimee will say something just right and I can imagine her saying that as a 3 year old.  Same goes for the boys.
  7. Spring~Spring is my favorite season.  And I just realized it about a week ago.  I used to say Winter and Spring…but now Spring has it hands down. 
  8. Sorry~IMO this word doesn’t get said often enough.  And it is such a simple word with a powerful meaning.  I admit, I have to work on this myself.  Some people (including myself) act like if they even say ‘Sorry’ that it is going to come out and bit them.
  9. Silly~I love watching my kids acting silly.  I like acting silly around my kids and seeing there faces of dread…
  10. Schedule~My kids thrive on schedules.  If something is ‘off’ on there schedule then you can sure tell it by there groochy mood.  My older two have actually put themselves on there own schedules and have developed there own “habits”  Of course some of them are good and some are bad.
  11.  Soapapia~This is one of my top 5 favorite “S” words.  My father in law gave me this as my ‘nick-name’ because for the life of him he couldn’t remember Suprina.  So he just said he was going to call me ‘Soapapia’.  I didn’t mind and thought it was very sweet.   I don’t know too many father in laws that give there daughter in law's nick names.  I love my father in law so much.  I couldn’t have asked for a better father in law or mother in law.
  12. Sarah- The name of my soft lovable Maine Coon Cat.
  13. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!--I love this 'word' the song.....

Wordless Wednesday*Feb. 9th*

Wordless Wednesday
Feb. 9, 2011
Why were we in the ER, all day yesterday??
My daughter broke her pinky finger by running into her room to turn on her light and hit the frame of her door.  Yet another reason; NOT to run in the house.
