The 7 Things I love about Dave...

Today Dave and I have been married for 7 years! Where does the time go? So I thought I would take the time to write the 7 greatest things about Dave to celebrate our anniversary!

1. He makes me feel beautiful, even on my "fat days".
2. He has such a great passion for music and even though sometimes I just smile and nod, I love to see the excitement in his eyes.
3. He is a very patient man, even if he doesn't think so!
4. I love his stubborness, even though it is at constant battle with mine! :)
5. He is a wonderful father, and I love to watch him show the boys or Taryn new things and see him get excited when they do well.
6. I love the way he laughs all the way through when he is trying to tell a joke, because he thinks it's so funny!
7. I love the way his arms feel when he hugs me and how I fit so perfectly in them.

I am very blessed to have Dave in my life, and I can't think of anyone else I would want to spend my life with! I love you baby! Happy Anniversary!

Does anyone even check this anymore??

I'm such a terrible blogger! I love going to my friends blogs to see what's going on in their lives, but when it comes to posting on my own, I can never seem to find the time! Here's a short run down of my life since my last post.

January: Pretty boring, a birthday party for my nieces, a couple of days of vacation.

February: Non-Stop craziness!! Andrew was suspended from school, was in a partial program at Immanual Hospital until today, which was a total waste of time and I think he picked up some more bad habits there. Trying to get him settled so he can return to school next week. Had my birthday out at Jack's Place, lots of good friends and drinking a large amount of alcohol in order to mask the stress I was feeling about Andrew. Another rough week goes by. Ethan and Alex had their birthday party Saturday. 17 Kids, bowling, pizza, cake, ice cream!! Insane, I know!! Sunday we went shopping so the boys could spend their birthday money, 3 hours later we come home with a whole mess of new toys. While I'm trying to relax from that fun trip, I listen to my voicemail, where I received a message from my friend Amanda telling me she is having surgery today to remove a large brain tumor. I just talked to her mom a little while ago and she is still in surgery, but it is going well. Please pray for her and her family. That pretty much brings us up to today! Where we have another therapy session with Andrew tonight, plus, all the other things! I promise I will post pictures from the birthday party soon!
