Happy Valentine's Day!

Since we are coming up on the big "V" day I wanted to take a quick pic and tell my hubby how much I love him. We are going on 11 years this Spring and still going strong and I love him more than ever. I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for sending me someone who is so special and is every bit of what I need. I am truly blessed for the life that I have.

I think you can tell I made him take this picture with me...c'mon smile "G"!

I have been tagged lately by a bunch of my friends lately who are moms on Facebook. The questionnaire is all about your firstborn and so I thought a picture was only fitting and I have to get them while I can. ha,ha

Jackson was jealous so he had to get in the picture too. He's such a momma's boy.

Eve had a play date with her friend Lily a little bit ago and I thought this was a fun picture. They were just twirling and twirling; Oh! to have that energy again.

Eve had a field trip on Tuesday for a play called Click Clack Moo, it was very cute. I was a chaperone and poor Lily and Eve were the only 2 girls in my group. Yeah, I don't think they really minded all too much cause I caught them flirting with all the boys more than once. LOL

It was such a beautiful day. No snow in sight! as apose to last week.

This is my favorite picture, so perfect.

Me and my boys, or known as the "twins".

Jackson looks like he's in pain. (he's really not- we don't beat our children)

So many kisses so little time.

I shall call him my squishy and he shall be mine.

I know what your thinking..what the???? random...
I put this up because we have had many instances of random blessing lately. For some time now we have wanted an extra fridge or freezer for the garage. I didn't want to spend the money for it because they are not cheap. Geoff's birthday is coming up next month and I was thinking about it on account of him liking meat so much..ha,ha. Our schedule is so different that it is hard for us to have normal family dinners so it is nice for Geoff to grab something from the freezer and throw it on the Forman. We have been starting to focus on food storage and for us that is. Freezer food is storage that is well manageable for us and rotateable. On with the story, I made a deal with Heavenly Father that I wouldn't spend frivilessly this year and only get things that were neccessities and few wants that were within our budget. As I thought about this deal and I concluded that I couldn't bring myself to justify spending $500.00 or so on a fridge. That much money should go to the credit card we're desperately trying to pay off. Well a about a week passed and Geoff's grandma called and asked us if we wanted her fridge that she had, that had been barely used, but was older. I of course said "yes" in a heart beat. She said she should've offered it to us last year, but didn't really think about it. As she told me this, I got a lump in my throat and a rush of humility. I say this because, it was like Heavenly Father told me.." Now Sarah, I told you I would be watching over you and you would get everything you needed if you put your faith in me." I know that we got this at this time because I decided NOT to purchase a new one with our hard earned money when we had debt to pay. Also, because of this pact I was ready to recieve such a blessing when last year it would've been nice, but I wouldn't have learned the spiritual lesson. Things like this have been happening for the last several months, but this was one of the most profound.

Live long and prosper.

Gangsa' style.

This is Jackson's KISS face. And no I don't listen to them, but Geoff probably does.

Such a sweet boy, I wonder what ever could he be hiding?

Jackson loves block and I'm convinced he will be some sort of an architect someday.

"I've got numchuck skills!"

Such a sad face.

Oh, nevermind that's even sadder.

He is my cuteness.

He loves to eat in his highchair, but he can only take so much of it.

This one is adorable I have to say.

Crazy kid.

We are still trying to figure out his expressions and what they really mean, I don't even think he knows.

How can you resist those flirtatous eyes?

huh, wait! I got somthin' in my tooth. lol

Manti still has 6 teeth, but has been teething this week so we'll see what happens.

More teeth, he's so proud.

This one is cute. He is EVERYWHERE nowadays, walking everywhere, practically running.

I think he really thinks he's a TIGER in this one. GGGRROOWWLLLL

This one cracks me up! He's standing like he's so cool and mocho..he's the buff dude.

This is mini-mom carting Manti around the house and him not being too into it. She sure is a great big sister and watches out for him. I am so thankful for her and all the help she gives us.

this is a great post Sarah, it had everything. I sure it took forever to do, but I loved all the photos and especially the story about the fridge. I really believe that Heavenly Father blessed us even more when we express our gratitude.

p.s I am really looking forward to Thursday.

Sarah, you do such great pics! I love the ones of Eve on the field trip. Too bad I couldn't go too! I love the story about the fridge too! HF really does help keep us in mind and answer prayers.
