P.S. Hal made fun of the fancy Chinet plates at breakfast. Come on' We needed to get ready for Church!
Church was great. An entire service based around LOVE, Family, Marriage, Commitment...I actually sat next to Haliee's teacher & his wife! FUN! :0) If only my Man wasn't stuck at work.
When we got home I made Hal lunch & took it to him. I made the kiddos heart shaped grilled cheeses, tomato soup, & Strawberry Slushies :0) I LOVE seeing their little over the moon faces!
After they finished I kicked them out of the kitchen so I could start the surprise dinner!! They had their own little trick up their sleeve so they quickly ran upstairs to get started! Hal is a little weirded out by the colored food, so for dinner I planned a menu around naturally colored red, pink, & white :0) Hal & Drew LOVE my lasagna (Sorry Haliee, she hates ricotta, so she just takes it out!) It was hard to hide all the baking because everything was from scratch so there was alot of mixing, rising, etc. They kept coming down to check if the coast was clear, lol, so I'd cover up everything and let them pass!
- Heart Rolls
- Sherbet Punch
- Cranberry Bliss Cheesecake Bars
This was the best day! The least money spent ever and the best gifts I have ever received...LOVE, family time, precious gifts, & memories. I am so thankful for MY husband and babies. I don't know I deserve them. They make me strive to be the very best person I can be. God has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams...
After dinner we all piled into our bed and watched the Olympics as a family. When we came downstairs to turn everything off for bed. The kids were talking about how glad they were we were such a close family. How sad they were for kids who didn't have loving parents and siblings, and how much they loved each other. How LUCKY they were! Again, MELTED MY HEART. My kids are so close. Drew hates it when Haliee sleeps over at a friends. Haliee usually calls him to say goodnight. I have the best kids on the planet! Tonight is a night I wish I could freeze time! I tried to soak it all in the best I could! I am SO THANKFUL for LOVE.
This is going to be a great week! My Anniverary is Wednesday...YAY!
