Celebrating us!

Today we celebrated 12 years of marriage!  Wow, who would have ever thought that a relationship that was really shaky at first could develop into the most wonderful thing I've ever known.  We've been through so much over the years and yet I am so excited to see what lies ahead.  I never knew you could love someone so much - that you could become so much apart of each other - that you could be so proud of anyone; and yet that is exactly what has developed over the years.  The Lord has blessed me beyond anything I would have ever imagined! 

We were blessed by some friends on Saturday who watched ALL the kids while we took a very cold kayak trip - yes, this is me sitting in my very own kayak that I paddled around for about an hour, proud of me?  :)  Later we were able to get a babysitter and go out to dinner and a little shopping.  Today after church we watched a movie called FireProof (2008) - what an awesome movie - and we don't do movies, normally.  Here is a link to the site, click here - it is really worth the time to check this out! 

Course, all good things have to end sometime, right?  So Mike is off for another few days (I'm trying to be thankful for the work, but it isn't easy today) on a job and I am getting all geared up for another week here at the homefront.  But, I do have some really gorgeous pictures to scrap now!
