Well, I felt like I didn't prepare very well for Rocky's birthday when we celebrated it with his family! I didn't do a good job for his Mom's birthday either (sorry Cathie)! Things were kind of hectic and hard to figure out with us being in limbo for a month; especially with Rocky being mostly in Utah & Minnesota and me going between Malad, my parents house, my Grandma's house, and Utah. I've lost a lot of things going here and there during the month of February.
Anyways, I felt like I needed to do something because it was a BIG birthday! I mean Rocky's now a quarter of a century old! :) Plus I wasn't able to take any pictures of the banana cake his mom made so I had no pictures to remember the event and I couldn't handle it!
So I ordered a quarter sheet cake for him. The plan was to surprise him with it. If anyone knows me, it's very hard for me to keep a secret! Well, everything had been a secret until we got in the car accident (The Bad and The Ugly post). After we got done at the hospital and back to Morgan & Brock's house, I ended up telling Rocky I'd ordered a cake for him and we were going to celebrate his birthday that night at my parents house before having to leave the next morning for Cali. He said, "Thanks for trying to surprise me."
Anyways, this isn't supposed to get depressing! So his cake was white with raspberry filling (lol my favorite).
This was a card/booklet I made for Rocky. My mom helped me by cutting out the letters because my attempt was beyond SAD! It's a good thing I have a crafty/artistic mom because I fail miserably in that area! I'll add that my dad helped me by suggesting I use ribbon instead of trying to find the metal rings at the craft store. He even helped me pick out the ribbon! :) In the booklet I did "25 Things I Love About You." It was fun for me to do! Of course, I'm a little more on the sentimental side than Rocky but I think he still liked it. I also got him a new pair of shorts for the warmer weather.
I can't believe he's 25 already (can't believe I'm almost 24)! He was 22 when we got married so it's just so crazy to think that we've almost been married 3 years! Time sure has flown and it's been the best (minus the car thing)! I love him so much and am so thankful that he's with me! He really is the best for me!
This is our 3 1/2 generations picture(s)! LOL! I look so scroungy but Grandma is almost smiling (she usually doesn't, she's not a fan of pictures).
My Grandma let me stay with her pretty much the whole month of February! I'm really glad for the extra time I got to spend with her and listen to her stories! She's hilarious! I'm also thankful that she's still around and doing so well!! I never knew my great-grandparents on that side and I don't remember the ones on my Mom's side because I was too little. I'm thankful for her and so glad that she'll be here to meet our little one!
