Celebrating Family Style

Today is our 13th anniversary & to celebrate we are throwing a party with the kiddos. It's a Monday evening after all, and really, the older we get the more fun it is to include them and show them that marriage is to be celebrated. My little lady is especially excited, she helped me leave a "love note" in Dad's car this morning and has helped me decorate the table. On the menu: Pizza, Salad & Cake. 

Why not? 

Chocolate Coconut Cake & Thrifty ice-cream too. We are ending the night with a little wedding video action as our featured presentation. We haven't watched it in years! I remember when my oldest was 3, he'd watch it and be angry, "Why couldn't I go to the party? Nana is there, Grandma and Grandpa are there...where was I?" I reminded him of his funny little self this afternoon and we had a good chuckle over it. 

13 years. 

It's kind of flown by. I find myself endeared to the hard times, two crazy, energetic boys and a hard working husband that went from full-time job to full-time MBA at night. Gosh, I never thought there'd be an end in sight and yet, it seems like a different life altogether. My sweet baby girl that was about the chubbiest, happiest, most loving baby on the planet...and then she turned two and turned our worlds upside down. We still let her stay up after the boys went to bed because she was such a good time (and so dang fun) and she hasn't stopped making us laugh. 

Oh the memories.

My husband began our marriage doing donkey kicks on our bed to wake me up in the morning and convincing me we should eat Lucky Charms every night before bed. He's a good time. I sure love this life we've built together and can't wait to see what else is in store. 
Happy Anniversary to us.
