After 20 years he still loves ME more than ever...

Yesterday Michael and I celebrated our 20th wedding Anniversary! This is us in 2005. WOW, I can not believe that this man LOVES ME! Everyone who knows my wonderful Hubby knows exactly what I am talking about. Michael is the most amazing man, and I still, after 20 years look at him with the same Love as I did when we were in High School...actually it is NOT the same. It is incredibly stronger than I could have ever imagined! After 6 babies, Honduras, working for family, starting our own business, helping family, making friends, losing friends & keeping friends, baseball, soccer, football, swimming, diving, taekwondo & tennis, buying cribs (both baby and shelter), cars, groceries, clothes, shoes and school supplies, fighting and making up, gaining weight and losing it, great health and illness, change of hobbies, jobs and neighborhoods, and millions of loads of laundry later...Michael IS my heart, every ounce of what I am and have become is a direct reflection of the man he is! Love Forever and Always Yours Michael, Happy Anniversary!!

Challenges...I think NOT, when you have Hanna!

Hanna Stamps released 20 new Rileys and a sentiments set "What Riley/Sophie would say" These were for some challenges. Route 66 was for the "fuzzy" challenge. I used Blue velvet ribbon for my fuzz. Fun in the Sun was a color challenge. Mikey and his PJ's were for an inspiration challenge, we were given three pairs of Pj's to pick from and this is what I came up with. For Reach for the Stars we were asked to simply use stars. Last and most definately not least is My Anniversary card, we were asked to use the decor in our bedrooms for inspiration. Ours is Safari themed, so I thought since My Love, Michael and I will be celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary next week I would make it Michaels card from me...SHHHHH don't tell!

My Baby is 6...

Our boys get birthday parties for certain ages. On the years they do not get a party Michael and I take them to dinner and to pick out their birthday present. So tonight we took Jager and his best friend Abram (they have been friends since they were 3 and 6 months old) to Toys R Us where they picked out some transformers and a small drum set that came with maracas, a harmonica and a tambourine. I know WHAT WAS I THINKING. Then it was off to Macyos Mexican Food. The waiters all sang to Jager he was so embarrassed and happy at the same time! Then it was time to dig into the dessert, fried Ice cream, well who needs a spoon after a while Jager just picked up the ball of very hard ice cream and chomped away. So with dinner and shopping over we headed home with Abram to spend the night. Of course when we get home the toys and drum set are quickly torn into and I hear one of the older boys setting up the "band" we have a keyboard so with the new instruments it is a full fledged group! Everything seems to have quited down now and the thought of my baby being 6 is just more than my heart can take, our children are such wonderful gifts. They bring such joy and unconditional love. When I was a little girl I dreamed of being a Mom when I grew up, well I can say with absolute certainty all of my dreams have come true, I am truly blessed!

Let's Party!

Friday June 20th Hanna Stamps will be having a good old fashioned Pajama party. The party will take place on Splitcoaststampers, in the Hanna Stamps Forum. So throw on your favorite PJ's, get some snacks, turn on your computer and get ready to party! There will be challenges, prizes and surprises so don't miss this one, the fun starts at 7:00pm EST !! If you are not familiar with Hanna Stamps you can check out their website at I promise you will be hooked! See you Friday.

Have I ever mentioned that I have the best Hubby in the world and he is such an amazing Dad. People ask me all the time how I do it having 6 boys well first Michael and I do it TOGETHER! We each pick up the slack where needed, Michael is truly the best Dad I know, he is raising our boys to love, respect and honor the woman in their lives and I know without a doubt our boys will grow to be wonderul Husbands and Fathers and follow in THEIR Fathers footsteps. Happy Fathers Day my Love!!!!

I am about to bust...

Okay I have to tell somone so here goes. A week or so ago I received an email from Kristi Ferro, Kristi is the owner of Hanna Stamps. You all know how much I love my Hannas and what a dream it would be for me to be on the Design Team. Well guess what...Kristi has asked me to be on the team, can you believe it? I am so excited I am about to bust. I am so honored that Kristi thinks I am creative enough to be grouped with the girls on her team. This is truly a blessing for me. I will be posting sneek peaks each month of new Hannas, Sophies and Rileys. For those that have never seen these amazing stamps check out the Hanna Website HERE. The Hannas are acrylic stamps while Sophie and Riley Moose are red rubber(you can get them mounted or unmounted). Kristi also has a great variety of other products on her site from adhesive to tools Hanna Stamps has it. So keep an eye out for some sneek peaks... I am just so excited, wish me luck!
