Three Year Wedding Anniversary!

Yes, it really has been 3 years, sometimes it's hard to believe it's been that long, but a lot has happened in that time to make it seem more real...including having two little girls! :) They've been wonderful years and yes, there were some downs during that time (including Jacob's deployment), but overall it's been an amazing 3 years...I mean really, who could complain about being married to the most wonderful loving man in the world, who I keep loving more and having two little girls. Time goes by so fast when you're enjoying life and I love my life with Jacob, Abigail and Bethany and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
This is one of my favorite pictures because its right after the ceremony, we had just walked back up the aisle and it was right before we had to go back out to get more pictures....we were finally together for the rest of our lives and it was a wonderful feeling that I'll never forget. I love Jacob so much and he's my best friend...I've never had many friends, but having his friendship is the best thing I could ever ask for. One of my favorite things to do with him is just spending time together talking...I probably do most of the talking, but he does like listening to me and spending time with me. Of course, sometimes he has a hard time staying awake when I get in a chatty mood late at night when he has to get up early for work! I'm not sure why I get so chatty then...we laugh about it a lot because its rather funny. I always tease Jacob about thinking I was kind of a quiet person when we got married and then having quite the surprise when I keep him up all hours of the night talking about, mostly, random things! :) I wish I had more pictures that I could post, but these are just from facebook week I'll be posting more pictures of everything.

So, we opted to stay indoors on this really cold day and I wanted to make whatever Jacob wanted for dinner, so we had pasta dish, which was pretty good and I made Apple pie. Jacob loves apple pie, but he wasn't going to make me make it, but I though of it and wanted to make it for him. Of course, he helped with part of it...the recipe is from his grandma, but she doesn't have amounts on most of the ingredients so its kind of a guessing game. It turned out pretty good, a little tart, but that was probably because we were guessing on the amount of lemon juice to put in it...I also think it could have used with a lot more apples and even though I got the dough (for the crust) in one try, I still want to work on it till I have it perfect! Oh, and it definitely helps when you're making a apple pie to have a "apple slicer corer" makes that part really fast and Abigail loved watching how it worked...she also liked eating the apples!

Speaking of Abigail....both of the girls have been really good today! They both slept in till about 8 this morning and then they both took a really long a 2 1/2 hour long one! I mean, talk about nice...and that will probably never happen again! They must have decided between themselves that it was about time they did something nice for daddy and mommy. :) So, it's been a good day...oh, and if you were wondering about Jacob's parents...they kindly gave us the house for the day and went shopping and out to a movie.

I love you my Jacob and I've enjoyed every minute of being married to you for these 3 make me happy and no matter what I'll love you more every day!
