Happy Anniversary

20 years ago yesterday my fiance picked me up and we drove to the Salt Lake Temple together and were married for Time and all Eternity.  What a wonderful day we had together with family and friends.  Mike has made sure every year we celebrate our anniversary.  We have learned so much about each other through the years but, I am still learning every day.  I did not know that my husband absolutely loved Tang as a kid until I brought a can home from Costco and he thought I was the bomb-diggity-dog. 

Yesterday morning I was working in my office and my son Cotton brought in this beautiful bouquet of 20 red roses that Mike had sent me.  I felt like a special gal and all the flighty feelings that I felt during our engagement came to me.  How fun is that?

Later we went to dinner together and were planning on a movie but, we both were dead on our feet tired.  So we came home and cuddled and watched INTERVENTION.  Good times.  I love you Mike and I am so glad you chose me.

What makes me happy today

Oh the weather outside is frightful...  Winter is trying to be a lingering, unwelcome guest here in Utah.  I really don't mind the cold weather because I know Spring will come eventually.  This is what is making me happy today
1.  My woodpecker trays with treats for passers by, and the carrots for Peter.

This young man who while I am typing just made a big crash upstairs.  I am almost certain he is throwing a rugby ball in the house.  That is a no-no.  Justus is loving rugby and is taking a trip to St. George this weekend to play.  He is doing much better in school and I cannot ask for more than that.

I love this platter.  I found at D.I. last week.  Can you find two butterflies on the platter?
 Ah yes, Tristan making his after school shake.  He has been growing out his hair and likes to shake his head because he can feel his hair move.  GOOD KID!

After 5 hours of cleaning my pantry is clean and organized.  I have shown my family where everything goes and asked them to PLEASE put food back in it's place.  How long do you think this will last?

Cotton taking an afternoon nap today between school and work.  He will be graduating from high school in 2 months.  Such an exciting time in life!  If I think about it too much I get a little teary eyed.  I love my boys.  I love my husband and he makes me happy too.  We will be celebrating 20 years of marriage on the 28th of March.  Wow, Mike and I have had a wonderful life together and I know we have so much more to look forward to.  What makes you happy today?

This is what your doing, this is what I want you to do.

Here is my first finished block from THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  Love the mouse and his glasses and cup of hot chocolate.  I am working on the second block now which has at least 3 times as much applique as this cutie. 
Here is the second wip that I am putting together.  I started this one today and want to finish it quickly.  This will be a gift for an incredibly special couple.

O.k. this is what your doing, this is what I would like you to do is what my husband is thinking as he took these beautiful pictures of his last snowshoeing outing that he came home from in complete outrageous pain due to his kidney stone. BHH.(bless his heart).  Mike would like me to go with him snowshoeing when he goes and I have enjoyed it when I have joined in on the fun.
Mike will be having surgery tomorrow on his kidney stone and will be back out on his snowshoes in no time at all.  Perhaps I will put the sewing away and join him.
