17 years, Illan, 75th birthday...big week!

Scott and I celebrated 17 years being married on Saturday the 10th. I still can't believe it has been that long that we have been married. Life itself has had ups and downs, but US...WE...have went from strong to stronger every day. We don't argue, we don't fight, we hold hands, we kiss, we tell each other we love the other every day...multiple times a day. I don't know why God blessed me so much with Scott. I dated some very nice guys...but seeing some of them lately has made me even more glad that Scott came ....or was sent to me. 17 years, if we had had a child to begin with, he/she would be a Junior/Senior in High School!! OHHH GOSH I am so old. I could literally be a grandmother by now if I had a baby during our first year...*SHIVER*

Illan Daniel is on the way!

About 2:30 dad steps on the porch to tell me that Cara is being admitted to have the baby. I think he came to tell me so I wouldn't be so emotional...such a sweeet daddy.

I am really excited. I plan on going there soon as Scott gets home. My back is out, but I think it will be ok.

If they think he will come tonight, I plan on spending the night with Lisa...would hate for her to do this all alone. Cara is so special to me and I just have to put any negative feelings behind me and be 100 percent there for her.

Daddy is turning 75 on the 23rd...WOW. I have been late starting the plan for a snuck up on me. I need to call Misti and Lisa and hmm who else to get some help planning and organizing. I told Daddy today we were having a way I could keep it from him, I needed to know some things for the party and the only way to get the info was to ask him. We planned it for the 23rd, but Todd is going to be out of now I am wondering if we shouldn't have it on the following Sunday....the 25th. SIGH.

Well, gotta get some things done for dinner and get ready to go see Cara. Really am going to try and keep this up more.

*A baby is God's way of should go on!*


  1. 17 years, are you sure? No way! That's like FOREVER. :D

    I recently turned 28 and my first thought of the day was, "What have I accomplished this last year?" That very thought aged me... but to think you'd have a high schooler is unreal!

    I'd enjoy very much to help out with the party. I hope to talk to you tomorrow about it and maybe even go see baby Illan, too!

  2. OH, I like the prayer on your site. It's beautiful~
