My Wonderful Husband

I have to take a minute and brag on my wonderful husband. A week ago Friday, before I left for work Josh told me that he would like for us to go on a date that night. Like always I thought that would be nice:) I really didn't get off until 6:00, so that morning I took nice cloths to the gym so I could get ready there for all day. So throughout the day I had tried to call him at the cabinet shop and his dad said that he wasn't there and then his dad said something about my dad calling and that's not a normal thing but I just thought that I miss understood him somehow, anyway I couldn't get a hold of him. My Dad had left to go pick a car up in Cookville and then had called and said he was going to stop by his house before coming back to work. (by the way I help my Dad and Brother on Thurs. and Fri.'s at The Truck Lot) Later that day Dad had come back to work and I noticed grass on his back, I thought he had just done some weed eating. Anyway, to make a long story longer, about 5:00 Dad told me to go ahead and take off work. I got home and Josh was all dressed up and told me get dressed up also (although I had already dressed up for the evening that morning) but he told me to wear a dress. As I got ready I could hear him taking something outside. We got in the truck and he made me wear a blind fold (he did the same thing when he asked me to marry him except I could tell where we were driving too, well that is another story) this time we were driving for quiet a while and I had no clue where we were going then it started to feel like we were going 4-wheeling the truck was bouncing up and down and I could do nothing but laugh. We came to a stop and he said to wait here and made me promise not to peak and I didn't. I waited for awhile, he came and got me out of the truck. I noticed the ground was really soft because my heals were sinking in the ground. We walked a little way and then he said I could look I then realized we were down on the river were my Dad has a large private family campsite. Josh had built a fire, had a blanket down, had our wedding flutes and plates set, candles and tikki torches all around. The river was up and it was a perfect setting. With grapes, cheese and crackers laid out he laughed and said we only have hot dogs and chips to eat and then poured Dr. Thunder in the flutes. After we roasted our hot dogs we had my favorite....smores.... they were sooo good. All in all Josh really surprised me and we really enjoyed it, we laughed and cut up all night. Our dates usually consist of going out to eat and maybe shopping around and then going home and occasionally renting a movie. This was something totally different and Josh did put a lot of work into it. Earlier in my long story Josh had called my dad to see if it was dry enough down at the river and then my dad had tried to call him at the shop which was what my Father-in-law was talking about. My Dad had met Josh on the river to help him clear off and clean up the site a little. That's why my Dad had grass all over him. Looking back I see all the clues but had no idea what was going on. This whole date might not sound like much but it did mean a lot to me and I truly enjoyed it. Its good to know that we can have so much fun doing the simple things.
just a couple of pics.

Over The Weekend!

Well, I'm going to start with Thursday. Lydia and I went to the Library (by the way if you and your child are available on Thursday mornings at 10:30am you should come to story time, Lydia loves it) they read a book that was similar to Peter Cotton Tail and then they painted a wooden egg that looked real after it was painted. Lydia really enjoyed herself. Then we were off to Taiah's Easter Party at school, of course all the kids had a blast. Although with the fun filled day that we had celebrating Easter not once did I hear anything about our Risen Lord Jesus Christ. Is he not the reason for the season! Ya know I bet I would be floored by the number of kids (and adults) that don't truly understand what Easter is all about. You better believe my kids know exactly what Easter is.

Thank God, Jesus came to live a perfect life and then take all of our punishment, all of our sorrows on himself. Thank God he died on the cross in my place and Praise God, he didn't stay in the tomb, For He Is Alive!

I think Lydia was on a sugar rush all day Thursday. Here she is enjoying some of the goodies she got from Taiah school party.
Also over the weekend
O-Kay I'm the worlds worst when it comes to remembering Birthday's, so I started programing all the ones I could remember in my phone. Well I don't know what happened but it didn't work and I let yet another birthday slip by my memory this past Saturday.
So here is to my wonderful Sister-In-Law Candice.
Happy Belated Birthday !!!

Easter Morning!!

Well we didn't get to go to the Sunrise service at Church, I really wanted to but I thought that 34degrees was to cold to sit outside with my girls. But the regular service was wonderful. After church we went out to my Aunts house and had dinner and a big egg hunt for the kids.

Lydia caught a butterfly :)
