You still look good in that purple shirt. Your attention to detail forever amazes me. Your love for others above your own self inspires me to be a better person. You are a morning person (while I’m too busy grumping around) and I love it. You still make me laugh when I need it the most. […]

What’s On Our Christmas List | 2014

We started a tradition a few years ago that has been one that has not only saved us a lot of money, but made Christmas more meaningful.  We told the boys that they could each ask for 3 gifts.  We based it upon the fact that the 3 Wisemen brought 3 gifts.  It give us […]
