We were talking over dinner about our "anniversary" and thinking back, little did we know what that date would begin. We had no idea that eight years later we would have three beautiful children and have traveled the road we have taken. I wouldn't have traded the ups and downs for anything. I am excited for the next eight years and the many, many years to follow. I love you, Phillip and am forever grateful to be your wife.

The last few pictures are to show those who have been to my home where I moved things around to. I wanted to show my sis the picture of the plaque...I bought it at Affair of the Heart and it is hanging above the door going into the laundry room.

What is your husbands name? Phillip
How long have you been together? We've been married for 7 and a half years
How long did you date? 5 mos.--when it's right, it's right
Who eats more? Phillip, but I can hold my own ;)
Who said I love you first? Phillip, but I followed a tiny bit later
Who is taller? Phillip. I'm 5'3 and he's 5'9
Who has more speeding tickets? Phillip, I usually get off, but I haven't gotten pulled over in a long time and really Phillip has only had a few. Funny, Phillip's a driver's ed teacher on the side and actually we really wouldn't know right know if we were going to get a speeding ticket 'cause our spedometer is on the fritz...we gotta get that fixed.
Who is more sensitive? Actually, I could say it's a toss-up. Phillip and I are both pretty sensitive about some same and some different things.
When there is a fight, who usually wins? Ohh, I guess probably me. I have a strong stance that I'm always right ;). Phillip will put his foot down on somethings, though.
Who does the laundry? Both. Sometimes I start it, sometimes Phillip does, I usually keep it going, Phillip usually folds and I usually put away.
Who does the dishes? Usually me, but Phillip is great on trying to get them cleared up in the morning before I wake up.
Who sleeps on the right? Me (if you're looking up from the foot of the bed)
Who pays the bills? Definetly Phillip, I tried at the beginning and still would help out, but Phillip has a system
Who mows the lawn? Phillip, but I've wheeled the riding lawn mower around :)
Who cooks dinner? Too many cooks in the kitchen isn't applicable in my kitchen. We love Joseppi's cooks, Texas Road House cook's... j/k. We both cook, it just depends. I can cook easy enough if Phillip can help with an idea. I hate coming up with an idea.
Who drives when you are together? Phillip, but I'm a darn good back seat driver :)
Who is more stubborn? Me. Hands down. However, like I said, when Phillip really wants something he usually gets his way.
Who kissed whom first? Phillip kissed me. You were cold right, Honey???
Who asked out who first? Phillip asked me out. Later I asked Phillip how he found out my phone# and he said that he looked "beautiful" up in the phone book. A cheesy line that I still love to think about...
Who proposed? Phillip
Who has more siblings? I do. I have 2 brothers and 2 sister and Phillip has 2 brothers and 1 sister.
Well, the very sick weekend started on Valentine's Day. I was feeling pretty crummy and Ella had been coming down with a cough for the last couple of days. As the day progressed I kept getting worse and by the evening I was really feelling it. Phillip and I exchanged gifts for V Day and then we all ate a heart-shaped pizza and we put the boys to bed. I was getting pretty sick feeling all achy and especially the right side of my body was hurting. I also had a horrific headache, which may I add, all of this is riding on the tails of the flu and a pretty icky cold that I had a couple weeks ago and the cold has been hanging around. Mine and Ella's health went downhill from there while Phillip and I tried to watch "No Reservations" (cute, by the way). Then the movie was followed by one of the very worst night sleep and it just got worse. I spent the next day very sick in bed worried that both Ella and I had pnmonia and the flu. Phillip invited my dad over to give us a blessing to help our bodies feel better, he also offered some advice how to couple my motrin and tylanol to kick my headache (it did help that evening) then he took the boys back to my parent's home because they were pretty stir-crazy. When they got back, my dad sat down with Phillip and myself (I was looking pretty horrific, may I add) and extended a call to me. This setting would only happen when your dad is in the Stake Pres. :) I guess the Stillwater Stake was reorganizing the Stake Primary Presidency and I was asked to be the 2nd counsler. Yikes!! I couldn't even believe it. Stake callings mean you train the leaders. I still can't believe it. I accepted the call and was sustained this past Sunday at Stake Conference.
Anyway, Ella and my condition deteriated that next day, so Phillip took us to the doctors. Long story, short...Ella has an infection (her white blood cell count was up). The doctor thought that it might be the start of pnmonia and so she was perscribed the ZPack and she was given a shot of antibiotics, as well. I was diagnosed with Bronchitis and a sinis infection. I really don't think that I have been that sick before...or as long as I can remember. The infection was giving me fevers and chills, nausia and vomiting and big time headaches and body aches. My lungs also felt like I had been running really hard and were burning when I would breathe. Well, we took our medicine and then Sunday things were really looking up. We didn't venture to Stake Conference, so I found out from family who I am serving with. I will be set apart this Wed. We are still trying to recover, so far so good. It's amazing how good you feel when you've been so sick. I'll be mighty happy when the cold and flu season are over. Phillip will too, I am sure, who has been Mommy, Daddy, nurse and pretty much Superman.

Liberty also has a great backyard. It is fenced-in with a covered patio. We bundled up the kids in jackets and their hats and they were off to the great outdoors. It was wonderful. They played all sorts of things. Some of their favorites were "Bob the Builder" (they take odd pieces of lumber and "build" with them and use play hammers, etc. and bang w/them...a young boy's heaven), they also would dig at some sand w/ sand toys and plastic spoons. They would come in with dirty knees, but very satisfied.
My boys are wearing housecoats that I got a super-duper deal at Children's Place outlet.
