Today is Josh's 26th Birthday. He was 7 when his Dad and I got married. He stole my heart then with his big smile, his pretty blue eyes and his great sense of humor. Over the years it hasn't changed, he still my baby boy and of course his Dad's (ha ha).
Instead of going out for Valentine, we went to a romantic restaurant called The Pasta House. Our hostess was very sweet and done a excellent job of taking care of us. Sarah made us dinner and set a romantic table. She served us lasagna, bread, salad, peach cobbler with ice cream. We also had sparkling grape juice. Sarah had set up a hostess table and made menus. We both got dress up and went driving for awhile and about an hour later we called to see if we could get reservations for two at The Pasta House. Our hostess met us at the door, then seated us right away. No waiting for a table. After we were seated we looked at the menus and place our order. We both decided we would have the house special. The whole evening was special. I love to having a romantic dinner with my husband, but everything that Sarah did to make our evening special is what made this Valentine the very best.
Yesterday I received my valentine present from David. It was a custom made camera bag. I had been looking for months for a girly camera bag. I didn't wont one that look a usual camera bag and I wanted it to be more feminine. I fond a web site that is coolest thing, it called etsy.com. The person I bought it from makes specialty bags. Her website is xcessrize.etsy.com.
This is my new bag, I just love it.
Yes, I was able to fit in my camera.
I also bought a lens bag, a pouch to hold my memory cards and what you can't see is my camera strap cover.
I picked up my prescription sunglasses today. I have been so excited about getting them. I have been wanting a pair for about a year now. I don't wear contacts, so I couldn't just go and pick out a pair of sunglasses. The last pair of sunglasses that I had gotten was when Sarah was a baby. Last fall when I had order my new glasses, I had them put the transitional lens in them. For me they didn't block out the sun enough. I had decided before spring that I would get me a new pair. So now I'm sportin a new pair of shades ( finally I'm in style, he he).
Preston is playing Upward Basketball. He gets so excited about playing ball. He will tell me "Nana, I've got practice tonight". It's so cute, it reminds me when Josh was playing ball. I love watching my kids play sports. These pictures are from his first game on Jan. 10th. Of course they don't take score, but he believes they won. They are all winners.
This one is a little blurry.Kayla and Sarah playing. Kayla loves to play with the strap on my camera.Nana playing with Kayla during the game.
My husband David and I have been happily married for 26 years. After 20 years, we closed the doors on our construction business and went full time in the ministry. My husband is a pastor of a small but wonderful country church. I'm blessed to work along aside of him and trying to be a blessing to others.
This blog is meant to give my family and friends updates on our little family. Even though life tends keep us very busy, my message is to let each and everyone of you know that we are thinking about you.
