Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday December 14th Ben and I celebrated our Anniversary. Ben and I have been married now for 6 years. Since yesterday was Sunday we celebrated it on Saturday. We had the opportunity to go to the Temple and do sealing. We always do that around our Anniversary, Its a tradition we have. We then went to lunch and the movies that night. I just want to say how lucky I am to have found some one who loves me so much as Ben does. Hes a great husband and a provider. Not only is he good to me but hes a wonderful father. I love Ben so much and I'm so happy to be married to him. We have grown so much together and learned a lot from each other. I'm happy to know that were sealed to one another for All Time and Eternity.

St. Augustine

Friday we as a family went and Visited St. Augustine. We had such a wonderful time. Even the boys were well behaved. We started out by doing some shopping. If you haven't done any Christmas shopping yet , go there! They have great deals and are always cheap.

(They boys taking a break while we were shopping.)

After we went to old town. We stopped and had dinner at Pizza alley. They are known for the #1 pizza in St Augustine and men are they right. There pizza was Delicious.. Try going there. We then went and saw the Christmas Tree. They boys loved seeing all the lights and they had this one man band which was cool. We had such a fun time!

Clifford and Santa

Today at our mall they had it where the kids got to eat breakfast with Clifford the big Red dog and Santa. I thought that would be a fun thing for the kids to do. The kids really loved it. Ethan didn't want his picture taken with them but Erech did. Erech would give them High Five and hugs. He was so cute. On top of everything Chick-fil-A gave us all free Breakfast. Afterwords we let the kids ride the train and see the signing Bears. We had a great time this morning spending time together. Erech and I with Clifford.

Santa visiting all the kids.

We had a great time doing that. On Saturday we as a Family went and saw the Movie Bolt. I was a little nervous at first because I dint know how Erech would be. He ended up doing really well. Ethan and Erech sat there watched the whole movie eating popcorn together. This movie was really cute. A good one for the family to see. Check it out!

This past week They boys and I made a turkey craft using their hand and foot. They were good about me tracing them but I did all of the cutting. Which this craft turned into me doing it all. Anyways here are pictures.
I asked Ethan what he was thankful for and he said"For Erech to play with."
I thought that was very nice of him to think of his brother.

I also asked Erech what he was thankful for and he said" My blankie".

I then thought of all the things that I'm grateful for. Here are couple of them
1) My Husband Ben... Hes a great provider for our family. He loves me very much. Hes patient and understanding with me. Don't get me wrong I get mad at him at times but we work it out. Hes my best friend.
2)My little Boys Ethan and Erech. I could not imagine my life with out them. These boys make me laugh every day. I love getting hugs and kisses from them. They are everything to me.
3) My family.. They support me through with everything I do in life. They are always there for me. I have the best family..
4) My Church.. I'm very grateful to have the gospel in my life. For all the blessings it has given my family. I know that church is True. I know our Savior lives and loves each and everyone of us.
5) My friends. I would have to say I have the Best of Friends a girl could ask for.

My list can go on...... What are you thankful for ?
