8 years of wedded bliss

Yes folks, that's right. Chad and I have been married for 8 years now.
Our anniversary was Monday (Memorial Day). I got him an awesome poster of the KC Chiefs stadium, packed in all it's glory. He LOVED it!
He got me this beautiful necklace. And I LOVE it!

We're celebrating tonight though. My awesome sis-n-law is coming over with my niece Hailey, and they're baby sitting for us.

We're going to Licking, MO to this castle restuarant called the Black Forest Grille.

And tomorrow we're all (including kids) going to Springfield, MO to get the kids' pictures taken @ Penny's and then we're having lunch @ Chuck E Cheese.

Fun filled weekend.

AND....I don't have to work!!!!!

I am so sad

I just got word today that my dear sweet friend Ruthann passed away last week.
I don't know how or why, but I know that she's not in pain anymore.
I know that she is happy and healthy in Heaven.

Ruthann and I met online on a scrapbooking board. Several years later, even when we weren't both a part of the same scrapbooking board anymore, we were still friends....keeping in contact through email, facebook, text messaging and an occasional phone call.

Her super soft voice surprised me when I first heard it on the phone. I knew how sweet and reserved she was, but the softness of her voice really stopped me in my tracks.

I will miss Ruthann so much. She was such a dear friend. And she had an impact on hundreds of people around the scrapbooking world.

Ruthann, I will see you again someday. Save a place for me at the scrapbooking table in Heaven. Love ya!

Forgot to say

Check this out! It's my newest addiction!
Have a ton of fun. I do!


So, Morgan's school pics came in. Who is this child that is supposed to be SEVEN? She looks like a teenager.

Tomorrow is the last day of the school year. We are SO EXCITED that we don't have to get up with an alarm anymore on the weekdays. Well.....I'm excited anyway. lol

Yesterday was my 5 year anniversary of working at the place that I work. And I got to celebrate by working a double shift! Well, an extra 6 1/2 hours anyway. But you know what? That 6 1/2 hours of overtime is gonna put nearly $100 extra in my pocket next week. And with that extra money comes a brand new hair style. Yeah baby! I am desperately needing to get my hair done. Can't wait!

I got a new stove! A flat top range with a see through door and an oven light. Yes, it's the little things that make me happy. But the best part? It is a nearly brand new GE stove that we bought from a friend who had it in storage. It cost him $1100. He sold it to us for $300! Yeah, we jumped on that one!

Recap of recent goings-on

There's not a lot going on in our happy little lives, but here's a recap of sorts.

~Morgan only has 18 days until her last day of 1st grade. She's sad about it because she has so much fun in first grade that she thinks that 2nd grade won't match up. She's such a worrier.

~Orin is now wiping his own bottom when he goes potty. This is exciting! He's 3 years and 4 months old and he's completely potty trained (he's now wearing undies at night too instead of pull-ups). He knows when he needs to go, and he goes. Hasn't had a daytime accident in well over 4 months. And in the past 3 months, he's only had 1 or 2 accidents while he was sleeping.

~23 days until our 8th wedding anniversary! Can you believe it's been 8 years?
Can you believe that Morgan will be 7 1/2 in one month?

She just recently lost 3 teeth (which brings the total to 7 lost teeth). Look at that smile!

~Because our anniversary is ON Memorial day this year, we are gonna celebrate the following weekend. Licking MO has a restuarant called The Black Forest Grille. It looks like a castle. Chad and I are going there for dinner on Saturday, and then we are taking the kids to Springfield, MO on Sunday. We're getting their pics taken at Pennys and then going to Chuck E. Cheese's for lunch.

Well, that's about it for now. I'll post again when we get Morgan's school pictures in. Should be soon.
