My Betrothed.

Well, guess what..
No, I mean guess what other than I have the cutest kids in the whole world.
Including one with a dagger of a tooth coming up through her head! 
Here is what... I have been married to this dancing machine for 13 years today.  I am working to get this blog post in by midnight so it can be official!  
And some day, maybe I will learn how to use a scanner and post pictures of our wedding day!  Until then...

These pics were taken this week during "So You Think You Can Dance."  And let me tell you, the people in this house, THOUGHT they could!  
Ellie, of course, couldn't function without numerous rubber bands on her wrist and a headband or two on her neck! 
Even Gabbi Girl enjoyed watching this man I have been wed to for THIRTEEN years bust a move!  

Ummm... this would be Ellie Sue break dancing! 
It is a bit surreal that Todd and I were married for 11 years before we ever got a kid (well, of our own anyway).  We felt like we had three for a long time!  Here we are at 4-0 and starting this whole new chapter of our lives!  TOGETHER!  
 Last night, we slept four strong in our bed, and it was just the sweetest thing ever!  Morning time, when Ellie is kissing Gabbi, and I am holding one and he is holding the other, we just feel blessed beyond measure!  

Toddly, it has been a sweet ride. 

 I marvel at how much we have been through and how everybody has "the one" who is chosen to go through life as their partner.  Glad my "one" is you!
