Show us your life...Valentine's Day!

I am joining in on Kelly's blog hop, show us your life Valentine's Dates.  

My favorite Valentine's Day was our first year of marriage.  It didn't start off that way though... I worked at El Chico, and had to work both lunch and dinner.  I wasn't going to get home until late, and I was so sad I wasn't going to get to celebrate Valentine's Day with my new husband (of less than a month).  

Little did I know that my husband was planning a wonderful surprise!  We lived in a 2 bedroom apartment, life was simple, we didn't have a lot then, but we didn't care, we were together!  When I pulled up to the door at around 10:30 I noticed all the lights were off and I thought to myself, "I can't believe he didn't even wait up on me!!!"  When I got to the door, I was trying to get in and the door was dead bolted... It was cold and I just wanted to get in.  When he finally came to the door, I saw he had a wonderful candlelit dinner prepared.  He made steak, mashed potatoes, salad and rolls.  He really took time and prepared every detail, even garnishing the plate with parsley.  I was so surprised and it was sooooo good!  Then he showed me the gift he had so carefully picked out.  It was a jewelry box with a necklace, ring and earrings inside!  I was so pleased that he knew I was sad that we weren't going to be able to go out, and made staying in so special!

I love my husband of 9 years more every day!  

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Snow...Day 2!

Wow, God is good!  We woke up to another beautiful day!  The snow is everywhere, and even though this afternoon it is melting away, we had snow...we had snow in East Texas.  9 inches of SNOW!  For all of you who have snow all the time pardon my excitement, but we never get it, maybe a dusting now and then.  My son, who has been praying for snow since November has been on cloud 9!  Here are some more pictures of Gavin playing today...

I love this one!

 fun, fun, fun!

He was so proud of our "little" snowman

Gavin and Gauge!

He is so handsome!  I am not biased or anything!

Eating snow ice cream...yumm!

***This has been an amazing couple of days!  Thanks to God for blessing us with another one of His beautiful gifts!***

Snow Day!!!

We got out of school at 2:00 today....because of SNOW!  This never happens in our area!  I was so excited!  It has snowed ALL day, and it is really piling up out there!  And there is supposed to be more! 

This afternoon when Shawn got home we went outside and let Gavin play in it!  I was so thrilled to see how happy it made him, he had a blast!!!

Gavin's Snow Angel!

My Snow Angel!  
(I don't recall ever making one, so I thought I would try!  :)

Kissing in the snow...another first!  haha
(not sure about Shawn's face...we were waiting to see if Gavin took the picture!)

Working on a snowman...that we never finished!

They were having so much fun with their snowball fight!



Me and my baby boy!


Maybe we won't have school at all tomorrow, but at least we don't go in until 10:00 if we do!  Hope everyone who got snow today had as much fun in it as we did!!!
