how could I have forgotten?

Somehow I forgot yesterday to post something very important!!! A huge Happy Anniversary to my husband! But, that's kind of the way life is for us right now. By the time Gavin got home from work it was 6pm. Wyatt was off to football and I was attempting to throw something together for dinner while watching the babies play outside. Then it was picking Wyatt up, scarfing down dinner, baths, bedtime stories, homework to be corrected, showers, etc. All in all, it doesn't make for a very romantic anniversary but it was one none the less.It's hard to believe that it's only been 4 years since we said "I do." Gavin always says with a grin, "Wow, it's felt like WAY longer than that." haha babe- nice one. But these past 4 years of marriage have been absolute bliss. (No, really, they have!) I'm married to the most wonderful husband and father in the whole wide world. I am so extremely thankful each and every day that God put him into my life and actually "brainwashed" him enough to fall in love with me! ;) He is more than I could have ever dreamed a husband could be. I love him more and more each passing day. Thank you Lord for everything that my husband is and everything that he gives. You have truly blessed me with one of the greatest gifts here on earth, a fantastic marriage to an even more fantastic man!!

Oh, and I have to add that I knew Gavin was the man for me on our first date. It was December and he came out to the ranch after work that evening and helped me clean 14 horse stalls and runs in the rain, bring all the horses in from the pastures, feed them and all in the dark. Then we ate KFC afterwards and talked until it was too late and time for him to go home. What a guy. Who does that on a first date??? :)

Daryl and I had our 2nd on the 2nd of this month. Time sure flies when you're having fun. Daryl says the same thing to me...it seems like we've been together forever. That's simply because we, like you and Gavin, were put together by God and nothing else exists. Congrats Heather and Gavin.

So sweet! Yes, anniversaries after kids take on a whole new meaning...you have to "PLAN" to go away...and celebrate...which we did this year on our 10th. =) Congrats to you both and to many more blessed years!
