I had a lovely Anniversary. Thank you for all your well wishes.
Jon surprised me by staying home from work. He'd had it planned all weekend and never let on.
He woke up and got ready for work as usual, left the house and went to buy me some little sweet something's, then came back home and hung out on the couch til I woke up. (I never even knew he was gone and back til I woke up-silly boy).

This awaited me on the dining table--along with a beautiful card.

So sweet. I was really surprised and so pleased to be able to spend the day with him.

We went out for lunch and then did some window shopping.

Tonight, we got a babysitter and went out for frozen yogurt and a movie--Sherlock Holmes. We loved it.


Haley turns eight years old on the twentieth! I can't believe it. She'll be baptized on February 6th. Ashley turns 12 in October and will enter Young Women's. Where has the time gone?


I have to find or make a baptismal dress for Haley. She doesn't like anything to girly/frilly, so I'm kind of stumped on what to do for her.
We went to the Wranglers hockey game on Saturday night. It was SO much fun. I think we need to get season passes. Actually, Jason wasn't too crazy about it, the noise bothered him. Maybe we'll have to wait a couple years for those passes.
I think my computer is possessed. Or haunted. It acts SO weird sometimes. There are changes made to it, that nobody made. Very weird!
For instance, the resolution was changed overnight--but Jon and I didn't do it, and I'm pretty sure my kids didn't do it. It powers down, which isn't a problem--but it'll power up by itself, with nobody touching it. weird.
Well, as long as it doesn't start spinning around in circles, or talking back, I guess it's OK. I hope there's not some virus hidden in there somewhere, granting access to some psycho 3rd party.
I need a haircut. I'm so bored with my hairstyle. But what should I do with it? It needs more body. I kind of want to keep it long-ish. Maybe a ton of layers? Maybe a new hair color? Suggestions?

I love it when husbands do sweet thing on the sly!

As for your computer, mine did the same things just before it died. I think my husband said it was because the processor & power supply were dying. I hope that's not the case with yours. Good luck!

Awesome hubby! Glad you had a nice day with him!
Haircut? Go to a stylist and tell her you are'll be shocked and possibly dismayed at what you come home with.
I bet you are beautiful how you are.

Awwww. I think my husband staying home from work would be the best anniversary gift ever.

I love the Christmas picture you put up in your header. So cute!

Sorry, I'm not one to give hair advice. I've never done anything interesting with my hair: no, not once. I hope you find something you like!

Happy Anniversary! I'll be at 13 this year as well. Man I feel old.
I'm happy your day was extra special. It is the best when you get surprises!:)

Happy Anniversary. Sounds like you had a really nice one.

I am really relating to the possessed computer thing. Ours will power up on its own to, with out anyone being near it. In the middle of the night it came on, we thought one of the children were awake.But when we got up to check everyone, they were snuggled down in the comforts of their beds. Yet the computer us ready up and ready to go. Weird!!!

That was so sweet of your husband. I'm glad you had a good anniversary. We're still waiting to celebrate ours (I didn't want to go out while dieting), but I think we're gonna hit Cheesecake Factory and Sherlock Holmes too.

Go deep red and really textured :)
