Best Kept Secret on the East Coast

So, got married.
Yep.

Made if official.

For those of you who have read my blog a long time or have known me through different groups or whatever know that I was married before and met Bobster quickly there after our separation.

Our courtship was short and sweet and almost exactly a year to the day that we met, our son was due.  Of course, Cheeks was a rather large baby, so he was taken 10 days early.

I digress.  We knew we would always get married but it just never seemed to happen.

So a few weeks ago we just decided it's high time to do it.
We told no one.

We picked a date.  Showed up. Got married.
It was over in about 5 mins.

I couldn't stop smiling though.
I was a very happy woman.
Cheeks told me we had to get married in a different room because the one we were in wasn't big enough.  Then he wanted cake.
He told me there is always cake at weddings.
True but not ours.

We ended up going to a quiet dinner with just Cheeks.
Tim is in Florida now & has been for quite some time.
Chris was with his mother for the weekend.

So no one knew. Our announcement was done on good ole Facebook.
A sign of modern times.

Tell me, have you ever kept a really good secret?

Merry Christmas 2013 from Us to You

Merry Christmas!!!

Our morning started off with the biggest kid of them all waking us all up at 6:45am.
That's right they big ole 42 yo couldn't take it and started telling us "Santa was here!"

The 7yo bounded down the steps so quickly I don't think he actually touched any of the steps.

Pretty typical morning.

Kids opened their gifts.

 
They loved everything.
Cheeks even exclaimed "That's a lot of stuff"

My mom, her husband, PopPop, & my dad came over to do gift exchange & hang out.
Christmas exploded again.

My sister came as well & bought Cheeks a "fart gun".  Funny at first, now I am plotting my revenge.

Look what she bought the Bobster:

Not the best pic but hey, I was going for the shirt.

Now we are either blogging, taking a long winters nap (ahem, Bobster), or playing with our toys.

Still need to celebrate with Bob's side of the family.  Prime rib dinner in just a few hours.

How was your Christmas?
Was it wonderful? Magical?
Just right?

Ours was.

Merry Christmas and to all a goodnight.

What's Your Superpower?

Forgetfulness.
Yes.
Tis true.
That, my friends, is my superpower.

Perhaps it comes with age.
I did turn 43 this past summer.
Now longer early 40's...mid 40's.

I take meds.
None have a side effect of being forgetful though.

Take today for instance.
I was running to Michaels to get a new rainbow loom for Cheeks.
I purposely took out this little book that I have with coupons on it & laid it next to my purse.

I put my coat on, got Cheeks to get his coat on, grabbed my purse & left.

I imagine the little coupon book waving at my back as I walked out the door.
Didn't realize I left it on the table til I was looking for it when in Michaels.

He still got the loom but I didn't save 40%.
Hmph.

Take this blog.
It's been since mid November since I visited.

That may not be forgetfulness as much as lack of excitement to write about.
Who wants to hear how I am bribing the 15 yo to do his parents laundry with money?
I admit it.
I pay him.
I hate laundry.

So anywho...tell me what is your superpower?
