Happy Birthday Ben

On Tuesday, March 17, our precious Ben will turn ONE! Wow, how time flies. It seems just like yesterday that we were preparing for his entrance. He has truly blessed our family. It is so rewarding to see the way Sarah looks into his eyes with such love and adoration. And the way Ben looks back at her with a wide grin on his face, as if to say, "I love you, too!"

My parents came in on Friday night from LA to celebrate his birthday. We went to O'Charley's to celebrate...of course an Irish restaurant to celebrate our St. Patty's Day baby!! I'm not sure that my parents understood the dad only knew that it was NOT the Golden Corral!!! :o) On Saturday, we had a small birthday party for Ben. He loved the cake....I am still getting icing out of his nose!! Happy Birthday Ben!

Oh, how I love thee...let me count the ways!

So I really know that Lee loves me! Ok, I have two beautiful children to remind me, but I just have to share this. I bought a used treadmill from my friend, Ms. Leigh. I say "used" very still had the price tag attached to it!!!! This fancy treadmill was put together by professionals in her bedroom as part of her purchase price. Of course, when I agreed to buy it, I just knew that my sweet, handy husband would not have a problem at all getting it out of her bedroom and placed right where I wanted it at my home. WELL....let's just say that it was a little more difficult than I expected. It would not fit through the door frame and only weighed a TON....he ended up spending 4 hours taking this thing apart! I won't mention that we were doing this on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon since we didn't have church that night. But we now have it up and running. Thanks Lee! I love it!!!! :o)
