10 Years and Counting

I'll be playing catch up for a while as I try to post about all the fun we experienced on our trip to California. Most notably, Mike and I celebrated our 10th anniversary! Mike had a whole evening planned, there was chocolate from See's candy and roses and the honeymoon was really great! When we got home, the kids surprised us with their own anniversary surprise.


Standing in front of the church where we got married.

So the kids (with Grandma Bev of course) made an adorable book for us. It was really touching and super cute to see their little proud faces as we looked at it together.
They listed all the things they love to do as a family..

Each kid wrote a note and decorated their page. (Some had a little help)

So sweet! I just have to comment, Mailee's printing is looking so great. She has grown so much in this last year!

Mikayla's words were from her heart and all on her own. What a sweet girl.

An awesome memory...looking at the book together.

10 years's hard to believe. I am so thankful for
the full and blessed life we have shared together this far. I love you Mikey!!
