Today marks 15 years of dating my favorite guy.
Blake asked me to our senior high school prom and the rest is history!
He makes me laugh. He makes me proud. He makes me smile. He makes me happy. He makes life fun. He makes me want to wake up another day being together. I love being married to this guy.

Our wedding day was a perfect day.
It was quite the party. (Sorry this one is so blurry. I took a picture of a picture.)
This picture below is my favorite picture of the day. Every time I see it, I remember how giddy I was and how much excitement and love we felt on that day. We were finally married!
The day we got married was the first day we lived together.

We brought in the New Year up at the snow! It was Austin's first experience of playing in the snow. I absolutely loved watching him figure it all out. The beginning was so very frustrating to walk in, to move in, to go where he wanted, but it didn't take long to figure out how fun it could be.

We got to celebrate Blake's sister Blair's bday together in a fun way! Chelsey, (my cousin and just so happens to be Blair's roomie) planned a whole day for Blair. After breakfast, Chelsey took Blair to get her toes done and look who else showed up!
Aubrey Rose got her first manicure. She loved it. She said it "tickled and hurt a couple of times, but only a little."
Then, we went to lunch together.
And for dinner all the family joined us and Alan (Blair's boyfriend).
Happy Birthday Auntie BB!!

Christmas evening we went to our Uncle Bob's for dinner. This was us leaving
and we are ready to go!
There were 52 people at Christmas dinner on Blake's side of the family.
This year we had 3 tables! Each year our family continues to multiple!
Great Grandpa with the great grandchildren that were able to make it this year.
And the Bill Smittcamp family!
Whew! Four straight days of Christmas and we were ready for a day of rest the next day! Christmas 2013 did not disappoint! LOVED it!!

For Christmas lunch, we spent the afternoon with Blake's moms family, the Chandlers.
I LOVE watching our kids with their Great Grandparents.
It is too cute!!
This is Blake's grandparents and their kids. :)
All of the family together...
And to think it all started from these two! What a wonderful legacy they have lived. We love you MomMom and PopPop!
Then, we ended the afternoon with another drive session in the new cars Santa brought. Austin can't figure what he likes better...being driven by his sissy or
driving his own. Either way, they are both pretty darn happy.
