*Note: I've been kinda going post crazy the last few days. So scroll down if you want to see more about my wonderful family!*
The 20th of January was our 3rd Anniversary. I can't believe that it has been three years already. As that day came I contemplated all the huge decisions we've come across in such a short amount of time. Probably the biggest things you do in your lifetime happened in just a few short years. First of course was the decision to get married.
Then the decision... Well actually I guess the surprise that we were going to have a baby. We was such a sweet addition to our family.
And how can I ever forget another one of the amazing decisions we made. On Feb 9, 2008, a few months before Nixon was born, Blake and I were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. What an amazing blessing that Nixon was born into a forever family. We have the wonderful opportunity to be a FOREVER family if we but keep the commandments and repent.
Then the decision to build and buy our first new house! It is such a great feeling knowing that one day this house can really be ours and not just the banks. I do cringe every month when I see how much is spent on our mortgage. I cringe even more to know that most of that payment goes to the interest and not so much to the principle. Oh well Gotta love it!

So our Anniversary didn't seem like such a good day to start with. We both had to work, Blake got stuck in a broken down truck near Wellsville so we didn't even get to eat lunch together. Then to top it all off I had to go to school. Well after school I came home to a wonderful surprise from my sweet husband. The baby was pawned off to Grandma, I had these sitting in my CLEAN kitchen....
And my wonderful husband was cooking a gourmet dinner of Lobster tail, crab legs, steamed asparagus, potatoes, and noodles. He even got sparkling apple cider! It was such a wonderful surprise! And it was delicious to boot! So I give major props to my wonderfully romantic (when he wants to be) husband.
Blake I am so thankful that the Lord put you in my life. You are my rock when I feel like the whole world is crumbling beneath me. You always are so positive in every situation and find the good in everyone and in everything. I am so proud that he is the father of Nixon and the rest of our future children. I don't think I could have asked for anything more. He does more for me then I ever realize. I love you Blake and I can't wait to spend the rest of forever with you!
