Family Pictures Sept 2009

I love how our family pictures turned out, and I want to give a big huge thanks to my very talented sis-in-law Susan Hayward, who spent a full day at our family vacation taking our pictures. She was so patient with us while have to suffer through all of the whining, crying, fussing and non cooperating that goes along with family pictures and kids!!! Thanks again Susan you're the greatest!!!

9 years and counting......

From the time I was a little girl, I always dreamed about my wedding, From what flowers I was going to throw,to what dress I would wear, to the food we would eat. I loved dreaming about my wedding and all its details, but the one thing I never detailed to much about was what my husband would be like. Sure I had all these in visions of beautiful men that would adorn my side, but I never had a certain, specific, note pad-check mark man that would be my husband, until I met you!!!

After our first date (hence the wedding singer song), I knew no one would ever live up to the standard or pedal stool I put you on. No one has ever treated me like you do, cared for me like you do, plain out gets me like you do!!!! You get my jokes, you know how to make me happy, make me laugh, and make my day!!!!!
Thanks for making the last detail of my dream wedding come true. I love you!! So here's to 9 wonderful years, and many more to go!!! :)

I love you more than you will ever know, you are my best friend, my soul mate, my everything!!!

We had a little green visitor!!!!

It all started when molly came home from her friend haylee's house, telling all of us to hurry and put on our green!! I said"Molly we don't have to wear green until tomorrow", to that she exclaimed "No Mom, haylee said that we have to wear green to bed, or the leprechaun will come and pinch us in the middle of the night!" I tried to tell her that it was o.k., that she wouldn't get pinched while she was sleeping, but she would not drop it!! Finally after hearing her plead her case, we all went to bed.(all wearing green mind you)! So I decided to have some fun with this little green visitor!!!

Here is Molly decked in her green, so she wouldn't get pinched!

We had a visitor. The little leprechaun came in through our back door....

tip-toed his way around the furniture...

hopped up onto Sawyers highchair....

Walked across the counter....

Walked across the kitchen floor...

spotted the fridge...

opened the fridge....

I guess he got thirsty, because our milk wasn't green when we went to bed!

and left his Pot O' Gold!!

Thanks you sneaky little leprechaun, now I have buy more milk, and mop my floors!!!

P.s. No this did not scare molly to never want to go to bed again, she loved it and wants to leave the foot prints up until everyone in the whole entire world has seen them!! :)

My favorite things swap!

So a little while back I decided to play "my favorite things swap". What it is, is you are paired up with someone you have never met, and you send them some of your favorite things, and in return they send you some of their favorite things!
I was paired up with Julie from West Virgina, and It was so fun opening everything she sent. I got a little glimpse of who she is, and of course what she loves!!!

Here is the spread she sent me!!! It was so fun unwrapping everything she sent along with a little note explaining what she loved. I feel bad, I didn't individually wrap!! Sorry:(

She sent Dr. pepper, a inspiring book, sudoku, magic eraser, gum, pop tarts, a fun saying on a tile, a magic marker, eye liner, a candle, picture frame,stationary, notebook, and sunflower seeds to plant.

Julie loves her state West Virgina!!!

Thanks Julie that was so much fun!!! I loved learning a little more about you!!!!Please keep in touch!!!!

Fun at trafalga!

We had a fun time at trafalga the other day with our little family!! Sawyer was in heaven, because there were soo many balls to take!! (Not just our families but everyone else golfing too!!) Oops sorry!! Good thing he is little or we might of had to roll up our sleeves to defend our thief!!

They changed the look of trafalga, it is now all "under the sea" themed and dark, so sawyer had his share of spills over ever bump on every green!

Our pro putter! She has a unusual technique of as we call it the"drag to the hole" but hey it works every time!!

Here is our family trying to cheat the system!! Nothing like teaching them when they are young!! Ha Ha
