i share everything i have.  honestly.  i share my food.  i share my car.  i share my bed - which i'm not complaining about... :)  i share my blanket, i share my shampoo. i share my time. i share my energy. i even share my clothes with my sisters!  even emma is not entirely mine..which is great because i love that she has so many people to love on her.  the point is i don't really have anything to myself.  anything, that is, except him.  he is mine....he is all mine.

i love my husband so much.  more than i can ever describe.  he makes me feel like a queen every. single. day.   his dad taught him well.  i don't know what i did to have him.  i certainly don't deserve him.  but he chose me.  he loves me.  and i'm crazy about him...

i don't say that enough.  he really is the best husband and father i have ever seen.  he leads and guides our daughter with gentleness and in loving ways.  i have never heard him raise his voice to emma.  ever.  and he guides and counsels me with everything i deal with daily.  i honestly don't know what i'd do without him. 

he works soo hard at everything he does and deals with each trial our family faces like a champ.  there isn't anything he can't face with a smile and a positive attitude, and that's something i will always admire in him.

he's funny.  he's smart.  he's inspired.  he's led.   he's hott.  he's friendly.  he's kind.  he's helpful.  he's shexy.  he's sweet.  he's thoughtful.  he's loving.  he's perfect.
he's mine.  {thank heavens}

we usually like to have fun around here when it comes to holidays.  we go all out.  this easter sunday was no exception.  we had the yummiest meal made by my mama, cupcakes by yours truly, with one made without grass {shredded coconut} for my sweet benjamin. :)

.emma bean's easter goodies.
.up from her nap and ready to participate in the easter festivities.
 .happy as ever to get her very own vacuum.

 .even grandpa had fun with Emma's gifts. 

  .we all (except benjamin somehow) took a picture with the bunny mask on, emma had a ball when uncle matthew put it on. 
.emma bug.

.later in the afternoon, emma started the hunt for eggs, accompanied by grandpa of course.


.look at him with his little basket.  cute.
.taking a peek at the loot.

.we ended the night with our traditional egg painting party. 
some of the family were fast asleep by this point, but those that joined in had fun nonetheless.  i love any excuse for a family gathering.  we had lots and lot of fun!  i'm already planning the next holiday when we can do this again.
