Anniversary and a Birthday

18 Years ago yesterday I married my best friend...
Paul.. Don't you love the mullett? 
And on our 5th year anniversary, we got the best present EVER!  We had our first baby, Jake.
Although Jake was a month early, he weighed 6 lbs and 11 oz's.. So I am GLAD he came a month early!
This boy turned 13 years old yesterday.. My first teenager.. He is a wonderful child.  Patient, caring and a super hard worker.  He is cutting four lawns this summer and making his own money. He helps around the house, is not afraid of getting his hands dirty or helping with anything.  He loves TRAINS, like no one else, he loves his friends, and his family. We are very blessed to have this guy as part of our family!
And we are still doing wonderful, he still makes me very happy, still makes me tingle in the tummy and We both could NOT get back in our wedding outfits if our lives depended on it.. well maybe if our lives depended on it, but it would not be pretty! :)  We still make each other laugh and if you can laugh together still, you have it made! :)
