12 years as Mrs. H



Yesterday December 5th was our 12 year anniversary. I am so happy with Steve as my husband. My hope is to feel like this forever.

Steve had started making some plans for us over a week ago to do something fun, but a few days ago when it didn't look like things were going his way he came to me to let me know what he was hoping for but didn't think it would happen. I was so excited he just remembered our special day and was wanting to do something with me. Of course I told him not to worry he didn't need to do anything but say Happy Anniversary. Well yesterday when he left for work we exchanged cards...even the kids had some...we kissed and he said Happy Anniversary. But then later in the afternoon the doorbell rang and it was this special delivery of flowers and balloons. I was all giddy and felt so loved and in love on our day.





After loving the way my friend amber speckled "M's" (the initial for her last name) all over her house, I have been wanting to follow in her decorating steps. Today I picked up another H and finally decided to hang them on a wall...I LOVE them!!!




Here is a picture of Ben early this morning...he is better than me at eating a healthy breakfast...his favorite right now is Oatmeal Crisp. Anyway he skipped his football game this morning due to sore legs. Last night BEFORE gymnastics he went with Steve to the track and ran 1.6 miles with only a few steps of walking to rest. So he stumbled out of bed this morning and told me he didn't think he could play football and I gave my little guy some Motrin. Tonight he is fine.

I was thinking of you on the 5th! I am glad it was special for you. We are celebrating ours next weekend while in Chicago! I also love the H's. Where did you find them at? I loved the scrabble letters and card! What a great idea that was.

I LOVE that H cluster. My last name also starts with H and I am going to "borrow" this idea for my home as well. I included an H in one of my Christmas trees!
