The Joy of my heart....

Is Jesus Christ!!! I love Him so!!

And He gives me joy after joy after joy.....

God knew what He was doing (yes He ALWAYS does) when He put this man and I together.
We go together like yarn and a knitting needle (your welcome RJ =)

This picture was taken last night before we went out on a REAL date; like with another couple and everything.
I can seriously count the number of times we have done this over our marriage on one hand...
Yes it happens VERY rarely. But don't feel too badly for us, we really our home bodies and just LOVE and like being with each other.
But these few nights out are very nice.
My cousin is in from Looieville =) and so we went out with her and her husband last night.
It was so nice.
We went to Panera Bread and ate and closed the place down ... (okay it closed at 7:00 pm, but still it counts =)
I LOVE this man so!!!!!

This pic cracks me up!!! I have no idea what I'm doing, but I look like I'm telling him it will be alright =) hahahaha I crack me up!!!
I wanted to show you a few pics from this past weekend.
This was on CHRISTmas Eve. My friend G got me a Snuggie.
I didn't know I wanted one until I had one.
It is just delightful....DELIGHTFUL!!!
If you click on this pic you can see my eyes are open, just barely.
I was sooooo tired!!!

Here is a lovely plate of Christmas mice, Nutter Butter Santa's and Reindeer...
I mean cute are these?!?!!
And so easy and fun to make!!

Here we are on CHRISTmas Eve evening.
My family comes over on CHRISTmas Eve and we eat and unwrap sweet presents we get for each other.
I always don my Santa hat and go to work.
This year I thought it was time for a new hat, and picked this diddy up at Hobby Lobby half that store!!!
Why yes, those are polka dot boot socks I'm wearing with my pin striped capris (that I generally wear with boots ~~ I never made it that far =)

I don't know....I just don't know...
Told ya, nothing very serious from Dak on CHRISTmas Eve!!!
It was funny ~~ really funny!!

And then there was this one ~~ I love this kid so ~~
And I love this pic!!!
Finally talked him into a serious one!!
We hope you all had a wonderful CHRISTmas!!!

This week I will be busy working on the health/wellness blog that goes live on Friday!!! So I may be a little hit and miss!! Hopefully I will be able to do both, but with my very extended workouts for this knee, my time to blog will be a little scarce. "But I shall try." (from my fav movie ~~ can you guess which one?)

Love you,
