3rd Anniversary

December 21 was our 3rd year of being married. Can I just tell you that Kevin is such a sweet guy. I basically forgot about it with being so busy with Christmas stuff and school finals that it came so fast. But Kevin didn't forget. He got me the most beautiful flowers and wrote the sweetest letter to me. I'm not going to lie- I teared up a bit. Then we went to dinner at Chilis and just hung out the rest of the night. It was great!  I sure do love that man of mine. I am so lucky to be with him for time and all eternity. We are looking forward to another hundred years of marriage!!! LOVE YOU KEV!!!!

My grandpa is such a great guy. From the time I was a little girl I was always his little sweetheart. He liked me the best of all the grand kids ;) At least I thought so anyways. When I got married he thought he lost his little sweetheart, but I didn't think so- I always thought of him as one of my best friends. When I had Kinlee he has been hooked on her bright blue eyes. He then called her his sweetheart as with the other grand babies. He has long been my only grandpa and I cant believe how fast it can all be taken away from us. He has still got a little of time left- he is in the hospital right now not doing so great, but I hope he knows how much we love him and we are thinking of him. I want him so badly to pull through so that I can show him how much he means to us. We have been so caught up in our own lives that we haven't been over to visit him for almost a year. How pathetic is that to my one and only Grandpa whom I love so much. Grandpa has always taught me so much. He tells 3 hour stories about how to use a telephone, or reads every traffic sign to us all across the state on the longest drive to the coast. He makes sure that we know how HE wants something done. Grandpa would always just show up to our houses just to say hi when he was out. Even IF he had serious leg problems. Grandpa always wanted home-made jam from our apricot tree. He loved it. Too bad this year we didn't get our apricots or we would have had a reason to go see him. I wish I had just 2 minutes left to tell him how special he is to me. 
Please, Please, Please let him pull through.

We had an awesome time in FLORIDA over Thanksgiving. Here are some pics from the trip!

This last one is funny because we tried so hard to get a good picture of us under water with my new waterproof camera, but we couldn't get it in time!!!
We went shopping.
We went fishing! (twice- it was too fun the first time to not go again)
Kinlee caught a fish.
Kevin caught several fish.
I caught 2 fish. 
We celebrated Opa's 79th birthday!
We relaxed. :)
Went couponing.
Kinlee got MAJOR spoiled. 
We went on walks every night around the block to try to get Kinlee to sleep.
Kinlee slept in a big girl bed and woke up early.
The flight was long, but Kinlee did awesome.
Alan gave Kevin and I birthday presents- Joey Logano hats....SIGNED!
We went to the beach. Kinlee had a ball.
We went to Saratoga Jungle gardens where we got to see up close animals and watch silly little shows that were educational and fun.
We ate tons of awesome food- but didn't go out even once to a restaurant.
(Oh how I love people who can cook)
We went swimming in Oma and Opa's pool.

We had Thanksgiving with Alan, Angie, Derek, Oma, Opa, Corey, Wilfred and Ushie ( From Germany- I dont know how to spell her name for real) Aunt Joan, and Howard and his wife. (Also from Germany)
Such a fun time! Cant wait to go again!
