~Our Anniversary~

~Thank you for all your nice anniversary wishes! We had a nice anniversary! It was comical though. Phillip and I were laughing because, he was still feeling yucky from having the flu, and had several fever blisters, I had pink eye and am 6 months pregnant. (Which means more tired than usual, etc.) Phillip said, "Help us, if we are this "falling apart" when we are celebrating 15 years, what will we be like when we celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary?" HA! =D
But we had a wonderful Lord's day/anniversary!
~Phillip got me these beautiful flowers and asked me if there was anything else I wanted for our anniversary. I told him that I wanted to get our 2009 pictures developed so I could get them just please make that my anniversary gift. (So, this past Monday I picked up all 536 pictures (Jan-Aug. 3rd, 2009) and have already completed scrap-booking the month of Jan. 2009! YEA! =)
~For our breakfast I made this DELICIOUS Quiche! I have been WANTING Quiche for awhile, so was HAPPY to have it. I'll try to post the recipe soon. Kimberly was my helper and cut up a yummy FRESH fruit salad to go with our Quiche. The salad contained Fresh mango, strawberries, pears, kiwi, and an apple. It was a wonderful breakfast!~
~Before we went to church, I asked Jesus to PLEASE come and meet with us in a special way. I told the Lord that His presence makes all the difference in our services. Our preachers can preach until they are blue in the face, but it's God who convicts hearts, and meets needs. I didn't know that Phillip had been praying that very prayer too! We went to church and God helped in the singing and helped Phillip as he preached. But, it wasn't until the closing illustration of Phillip's message that God's SWEET presence settled down on our service and a lot of us wept and prayed for about 40 minutes or so. It was a very special service!
After we came home and ate our yummy dinner, this is what Elijah and I did...we were exhausted. =) Phillip stayed up with our 3 older children.~
~I made a fresh Strawberry pie for Phillip for our anniversary! Here Elijah is pointing to it...with LONGING in his eyes. =)~

~We melted some chocolate and added some chopped walnuts for a quick yummy choc. heart. =)~
~Kimberly and I melted choc. and made choc. hearts to put down into the cool whip of each piece of strawberry pie that we served. =)~
Lord willing, we plan to have Noah's kindergarten graduation this coming Saturday, June 12th. We plan to do a little program with us singing some specials, Noah reciting Scripture, presenting him his diploma, etc. and then afterwards I'm serving a full course meal to all of our guests. PLEASE PRAY THAT I CAN GET IT ALL DONE!! When one is 6 months pregnant, their energy level isn't quite what it usually is. =) Thank you for your prayers!!!!
I'll post pics of his graduation as soon as I can.

I'm telling you what! All these chocolate ornaments lets me know a 'Bryan' is involved in this food preparation. Ha!

Now, you and Phillip know how Dad and I feel when we celebrate our wedding anniversaries. Just think of how much fun we had on our last anniversary. It was our 37th!! Chuckle!

Seriously, this was a pure-d-interesting and gorgeous post. I loved every single-dingle detail of it, and I loved each picture. I'm sure Elijah's sleeping picture sums up your feelings these pregnant days of yours. Smile.

It's a great life if you don't weaken! Hang in there, busy Mama!

With LOVE,
Mom D
