      Happy Father’s day to my sweet husband.

 I couldn’t have asked for a better “daddy” for my girls.  He has spent a lot of one on one time with them lately. Teaching them skills like building closets. Building workbenches, and mowing the lawn together.
I am so lucky to have him as my husband. He makes it possible for me to stay HOME and be a MOMMY!   
I am grateful for his sacrifice in serving our country.
 For his example to the young men in our ward. I am proud of him for all that he does!
For Father’s Day he wanted POT PIE’s for dinner… not a BIG FAT steak… Pot pies! Seriously, he is so easy going that he makes my life easier!  After dinner we gave him all our cards and presents.  Here is what I made for him

I got the idea from here.
We also gave him a camo USA hat and lots more CANDY! (the girls picked it out)  He has already gone out saturday and picked out his "other" gifts. He bought himself a gas weedeater and an air compressor. 
Also I want to wish my daddy a Happy Father’s Day!  I am lucky to have him as my daddy.  What an awesome example he is to me.  I know that I can ALWAYS count on him!  Ya know, all my sister’s say they are “daddy’s little girl”… Well I KNOW that I am!  There is not a day that goes by that I don’t talk to him.  I love you daddy!
 now for some FUN things I found for Father's Day.....

So after some rearranging of the bedrooms/ who’s sleeping where, our oldest, Haylee is back downstairs.  Problem is, she has NO closet to put her clothes in.  SOOOOO my hubby come up with a BRIGHT idea to BUILD her one!
He worked in construction for YEARS before joining the Marine Corps and has always looked for way to get back into that element. So he chose THIS weekend to do so.
After making a trip (or two) to Menard’s to gather all the supplies, a reluctant teenager started helping her daddy BUILD!  But 1st they had to remove the countertop/cupboard and moved it into MY laundry room.. I couldn’t be HAPPIER!  More room to store away the goods!

 They are still in the process of building the closet.  Here are a few pictures of the progress they’ve made so far. My hubby says it takes WAY LONGER when you are teaching someone along the way.  But I have never seen that teenager so happy as I did yesterday working along side her dad!

 the 2 hard workers.  I am so proud of them for working together and for the patience my hubby has had in teaching.  

and the work goes on..... updates to come.

Over or Under????

 Even after 15 years of being married, the guy STILL hasn’t caught on….

It’s OVER ….


 (it's gotta be one of my BIGGEST pet peeves!)

So whilst searching the internet, I found this...

See 70% of people say OVER is the CORRECT way to place on the roll....

Maybe that is the reason for the under..... to keep small little fingers or ANIMALS from unraveling it :)

15 years later

Well as of May 31st, I have been married to the man of my dreams, my hero, my marine for 15 years!  Hard to believe that it has been that long we have been together for over 20 years now. We started dating my senior year in high school- yes that means I graduated 20 years ago. Wow!  I am totally dating myself huh?
When My sweet husband woke up that morning, he came and gave me a kiss and wished me a happy anniversary.  That is all I was expecting.  He is not a big gift, or even card giver!  He called me at lunch time and said he’d be home “early” from work.  When he got home, he handed me the sweetest card.

I felt bad, because normally I am the gift giver, but this year I did nothing! Ziltch! Nada! Oh well he was ok with that.
So we enjoyed a fun evening at home celebrating with our girls.  We had a great dinner. With lots of laughs and teasing. The kind of night I wish we always had.
We looked through our wedding album. Here are just some of the pictures. Sad to say we did not spend the money of a good photographer. My hubby had his best man’s stepdad (who was more interested in drinking & smoking out in the parking lot) take the pictures.  We only ended up with 1 picture of us together, in front of our cake. Oh well, you live and learn.  I can say for a fact we will spend them money for our girls weddings.
