That Mystery Man In My Life!

Oh my husband's going to love this one!  More than once this past week someone has asked me where my husband is in this blog!  And I realized, that yes, he's sadly been missing in action!  One of my favorite things about this is how I can share what's going on at home with Tommy while he's at work!  However, that really does leave him OFF of the blog in general, now doesn't it?

So on behalf of myself and the kids, I'd like to introduce you to the head of our household, the man of my dreams, the guy that really was meant to born 100 years ago, the one who I STILL never know is being serious or joking, the greatest father my kids could ever have, the hardest working human I've ever known, and the most entertaining person I've ever encountered in my entire life! 

The day we said 'I do'.  I have heard those are the most famous last words!  And oh how far we've come since that day!  It's been a wonderful, fun, and very eventful road so far!  Thank the Lord that every bump along the way has been surrounded by His grace, our love, and the many blessings we've shared together!

I love this picture!  It's been several years since the day this was taken, but I think this may always be 'that photo' that takes us back to the early days of our life together!

Did I mention how much our lives have changed since that December day in Jackson Hole?  Perhaps pictures will speak louder than words in this case!  Let's just say we've been very blessed in a very short time! :)  Thank God for heated pools!  For those of you who don't know that story.....I may just have to share one day!
Tommy and all four kids!  They designed and decorated this cake for him on his birthday this year!  It's a coon hunting cake, complete with two coon heads!  They were so excited and by the end of the night, we had 4 proud kids and 1 proud Daddy!

I do believe Daddy was dishing out coon hunting advice in this picture!  But really, there's no telling what exactly was being discussed amongst these four!  Cass was looking on from the backseat of the truck!

The power was out on this night, so we all camped out in the living room in front of the fireplace!  This was an inside view of when Tommy joined the kids in the Thomas The Train accommodations!

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

Tommy, I thank the Lord that you are part of this beautiful plan He's unfolding in our lives and family!  Just like our wedding song talks about, God truly did bless the broken road that led me straight to you! 

...but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.  Joshua 24:15

How blessed these kids and I are to have this man in our lives!  We love you Tommy!
