Our schedules have been so busy with school and sports and dance and sickness and work and church that we haven't had much time to spend together. Lori and I live 15 minutes from each other and have barely spent any time together all school year. Another reason that I'll be happy when summer comes! I miss my sister!
Here's the lowdown on our holiday weekend.
Dying eggs, a time honored tradition.
The Easter bunny showed up!
Posing with Papa, who was busy at church preparing and serving pancakes and sausage to the masses. Yum.
The brood pre-hunt (including Dylan's sweet little girlfriend).
Cuddled up with Dad.
Someone else has been missing Aunt Lori too.
Easter Sunday was also Rich and my wedding anniversary! Twelve of the happiest years of my life have been spent as this man's wife.
Truth be told, we both forgot about it. Lol. Between me getting a new car and both of us preparing for Easter and everything in between, it totally slipped our minds. No worries, though. There is no love lost on the two of us. As I am reminded by our friends, it's kind of disgusting how crazy Rich and I still are about each other.
We view our marriage as the foundation upon which everything else in our lives is built. And we have learned to give it the priority it deserves. We have our highs and lows just like every couple and have worked hard to maintain our passion through the years. We have both made mistakes along the way (me more than him, I am certain) and will again, I have no doubt. But we have come to realize that a marriage is a living, breathing, changing thing and, as such, is vulnerable. So we both committed ourselves to protecting and feeding and honoring it. It's as tough as it is rewarding. And is not for everyone by any means.
But it works for us. And it works very well.
Plus he's very cute. :)
As for him...I have no idea how he does it. I'm kind of a pain in the ass. :)
So happy Easter (and Anniversary) from this blessed pain in the rump. I hope yours was a special as ours!
