So, this week my "who loves me" is kind of an obvious one. Who else would stay with me this long and all my sarcasm, "terms of endearment", and lack of lovey dovey words? yea, J. He's the one. Aint no one better for me. I honestly can't believe it's been 12 years...it feels like 3 or 4...10 at the most (haha). We've had some crazy crap over the years, and some awesome shiz. We've been 100% super broke, to a year of amazing trips, a new fancy shmancy Suburban (oh how I miss you big red). We've had years of complete sanity, working on fitness, family picnics daily, walks every Sunday, little family road trips....to years of pure survival on the edge of insanity, not being able to get a single healthy meal together but once or twice a week, no extra activities, no trips, no extras unless they were completely 100% required. We've had Christmases where we bought Christmases for other families, we've had Christmases where we WERE the charity family. We've had months where we wanted to spend every free, waking moment together, and years where we were so insanley busy by blessing since we had rough times with each other. We've HONESTLY been through all of it. And we still super love each other... a lot. I'd rather hang out with him than anyone in the world...even on his super obnoxious lettuce and spinach days. He's the one.
This picture is from year 3 of marriage...the end of my pregnancy with Kamryn...at a hockey game with our friends the Delriue's. The 2nd year of our 5 years of food stamps and creative free dates.

We finally got to do our white elephant again. My kids beg every year, but we usually only do it about every other year. I dont' know why they love it so much...whatever they get usually ends up in the DI pile within a week. I guess the excitement of the game and seeing who gets left with what crap.These 4 specimen of awesomeness make me proud to call them family. This is what the little cousins have to look up to. Sometimes scary, but usually just awesome!

Last month Kam decided to use her Build A Bear Card. Her and Vivian both got one for Christmas. We've always gotten a build a bear for our babies...and all 4 still have them, so we decided it was Viv's turn.
She didn't really enjoy it a whole lot, but Kam and Pearcen sure did. Kam made a pink bear with a pink outfit....
And for Vivian we decided on a bunny with a matching pink tutu....

- I was able to try out Palmolives new scents,a nd I LOVE THEM. They smell so great, but I like the shape and the look of the bottle even more than the scents. My favorite scent is Lime Basil. It smells like a fresh Italian resturant! I love it! I let my neice smell them all and she loved them, but agreed that the look of the bottle is even better. The link to Palmolive is down below, and so is the link to Influenester, which is the company that I was able to try all of these soaps and lots of other things out...FOR FREE!!!! You can also find these scents at Walmart.
