On Sunday we went walking around, we went out to breakfast and spent a great afternoon together. I hope we don't have to wait to long to be alone like this again. HD made me feel like a Queen, I never opened one door, he held on to my hand like I would fall if he let go,keeping me close to him every minute, everything was just so romantic and special. Thank you HD for loving me, Thank you for making me the happiest woman in the world, Thank you for being my hero, my everything, my forever and always!

HM is my niece and we are 14 years apart. I was in the 8th grade when she was born and felt so proud to become an aunt. I was the instant babysitter - me and my friends thought it was a lot of fun taking care of her. Over the years, HM and I became very close and actually, I felt like she was more like my little sister.
She is one of the sweetest persons you could ever meet and anyone who does meet her, wants to become her friend. I count on her for a lot in my life...marriage counselor, mommy guidance and sisterly advise. I know she is the one person in the world who would do anything for me without hesitation. She loves me unconditionally and loves my children with all her heart.
She was there for me standing right by my side the day I got married and she was there for me shortly after my little babies were born 16 weeks early. That really meant a lot to us to have her and HD there in the first few days for support. I don't know what I'd do without her in my life and hopefully will never have to find out.
I love this girl more than words can say and I wanted to tell you all about it on her big day. I've always tried to make sure she knows how special I think she is and how proud I am of her. So, with all that said, I'd like to share a few of her birthday pictures with you.
Here is one of my favorite pictures of her and my dad when she was about 9-10 months old? (I'm not exactly sure because there is no date on the back of the photo). Ok, this one isn't a birthday picture but I liked it anyway.
This next picture was taken on her 8th? (again, no date on back of pic) birthday. If you look real close, you can see me sitting on the couch with my slip showing..nice.
This last picture was taken on her 15th birthday. We were at Marion's Pizza (home of the square pizza) in Dayton, Ohio. She was growing up right before my very eyes. I really love this picture of her.
So, here's to you Happy Mommy....may you have many, many, many more birthdays to come. And just a word of advise ~ If you're freaking out about 30, just wait until 40 rolls around!
I love you! ~ Aunt Twice Blessed Mommy

Your Blog Should Be Blue
Your blog is a peaceful, calming force in the blogosphere.
You tend to avoid conflict - you're more likely to share than rant.
From your social causes to cute pet photos, your life is a (mostly) open book.

During school time the tv does not come on. I set up learning stations around the house so the children not working can still be learning. At one station we have pattern blocks and pictures laid out. Puzzles at another station. And construction paper with scissors and glue at another station. I will be switching up the items at the stations, some days we will paint while other days we will do play dough.
On Wednesdays we are going to a homeschooling group. We do a 4 day school week with Fridays open for tests.
What works for me is scheduling each minute of our school time, it gives us a guide line and helps me keep organized. What works for you? This week is backwards week for WFMW, so what can I do to improve our school week? I love ideas about school. For more WFMW go to Rocks in my Dryer.
