Day 124 - Cinco de Mayo & Box Car Hill...

While most people were sipping margaritas and eating tacos this day eight years ago, my hubby and I were sipping on sparkling grape juice and eating eating chocolate covered strawberries...

Gosh, I cannot believe it has been eight years! We had only been engaged a total of THREE WEEKS the day we said, "I do." Crazy!

Anniversary or not, today was an exhausting day. The three little kids were extra whiny today. I don't like whiny. It is my least favorite "bad behavior." They whined enough for the rest of the year today so hopefully we are done 'till 2011. Haha!

Hillary Ashton has an end of the year music program in a few weeks at our church. The theme is the Good Samaritan. Each of the kids make a car to drive during the program. Hillary Ashton had a great time getting her car ready for the dress rehearsal tonight. I asked her on the way to school this morning what she wanted her car to look like so I could pick up the supplies at Wal-Mart. She said she wanted it, "shiny, pink, purple, turquoise, pretty, girly, sparkly." Pretty good description :o)

Happy Anniversary. Love the car. Hate the whiny. Some days I just want to say "why can't we all be happy". Oh, I guess I probably do say that... There is always tomorrow.

Happy Anniversary! I just can't get over the three week engagement. I always thought our four months of dating before our engagement was wild! The girls are just getting so big. You have a precious family! Miss you lots!
