Marvin's First Year Anniversary Poem to me

I thought you might not persevere,
But married we’ve been for one whole year.
And so you would know I’m not distraught,
“I’ll get her something special,” I thought.
I thought there was nothing though, however,
That said how much I want forever,
To be the one that hadn’t thought,
A wedding gift I should have bought.
“I’ll make it right,” I contemplated,
“I’ll make her memory be transformated!”
“Something to make her not remember,
The mistake I made our first November.”
And thus I thought, and thought, and thought,
Until I felt so overwrought.
“I’ll get her a car,” it came to me
Shiny and clean, with a built-in TV.
Or a glamorous mansion, the kind she wants.
For breakfast in bed I’d bring her croissants.
Or a bracelet with rubies, and a pretty diamond necklace,
If all these I got, it wouldn’t be reckless.

And hence I scrambled, off to the store,
To buy all these things, and a whole lot more.
And I got lots of stuff and was ready to pay,
But the cash that I had would not go a long way.
So you can imagine my dismay and gloom.
When all I could buy was some cheap perfume.
And for you to even get that today,
I had to borrow your sister Renee.
I know it’s not a block of gold metal,
But this year l hope that you can just settle,
It’s small compared to very big thought,
Of the things I wanted and went out and sought.
I guess it’s good to always remember,
Each and every year in November,
It’s not the costs or dollar amount,
It is the thoughts that really count!

One year later...

Marvin and I have been married for one year today. Unfortunately, we are not in the same state. I came to Florida last Sunday to help my Aunt recover from surgery. Marvin is driving down here this Wednesday to spend Thanksgiving with me and my family. Then we'll drive home together.
This morning I woke up and I found a gift bag on my bed. Marvin had my sister Renee get me a gift and leave it out for me. He wanted to surprise me on our anniversary. Also, he had written a lovely poem. I will post that later.
I'm so grateful for my wonderful husband. He is so sweet, supportive, and kind. I can't wait for our 2nd year together!
I'm glad I waited for him. =)
I love you Marvin!

Birthday Party!

Marvin, Emery, and Leah all have their birthday's within a week of each other. So I wanted to throw a party for all three of them at once. I didn't get any pictures of the party, but I did take pictures of the decorations.
Marvin decorated the cake. Noticed how he spelled "Birthday". He loves to say it that way. He thinks it's funny. He always keeps me laughing. I love my Marvin!

Corn Maze 2008

Last month we went to a corn maze here in Dahlonega. It was really fun. I had some reservations about it, because as many of you know... I am a scardy-cat! But I had my big, strong husband there to protect me! =) We had a great time! Marvin's brothers and sisters came as well. Marvin would love to own a tractor so he can go around and do tractor-type things with it. So I took some pictures of him "driving" this tractor at the corn maze. Isn't he the best?!?!

Our lovely Kyra...

Up here in North Georgia it's getting pretty cold. Every morning Marvin takes Kyra for a walk. He bundles up in a cozy jacket, hat, and warm pants. When they get back I feel bad for Kyra because she feels cold. So I have her sit on her bed and I wrap her up in a blanket. She is so precious! Emery was helping to warm her up too.

Halloween 2008

We were so excited about Halloween night. Marvin decorated the porch. Before he put up the fake spiderwebs, he had to clean out the real ones. =)
But we only had 2 kids come to our house. I understand though, we live in the country. There are no street lights and our driveway is very long. The important thing is Marvin and I enjoyed the evening together! =)
