A Birthday, an Award and so much more

Today is my sweet husband, David's birthday. I am so blessed to have this man in my life. We met in high school and have been together ever since. He is an awesome daddy, not one day goes by in this house that he is not outside playing ball, teaching how to ride bikes or just chillin on the couch with the kids watching their favorite disney shows. He will be coaching both younger ones this fall in soccer and is very involved in Chandler's soccer club and is the manager of his team. He loves the Lord and really his entire life revolves around our family and how he can provide for us to spend as much time together as possible. Honey, we love you and hope it is wonderful day!!!

I was plesantly suprised to have received these awards from Kim. I love visiting her blog and I was humbled when I found out she passed them onto me. She is a sweet christian who loves her family and can really make you think when you read some of her posts on spiritual things.
I have such a hard time selecting a blog for an award because I really am so attatched to all on my list and several more. So I am going to cheat a little and if you would like to accept the award please do if you are on my list. I enjoy each and everyone of your blogs. I am probably missing several though because I am so in need of updating the blogroll.

Your “official instructions” follow. Now go forth and share the love! To the recipients of the award...pick five blogs you consider deserving of this award, whether for creativity, design, interesting material, or contributions to the blogging community, no matter what language. Name each nominee and link to his/her blog. Show the award and include the name (and link to his/her blog) of whoever presented you with this award.Link to the Arte y Pico blog so everyone knows the origin of this award. Post these rules.

She was also having a give away and I won a handmade prayer journal, anticipating its arrival. :)
I will take a picture and post when I receive it.

My Sister, Sandy and my three nephews arrived last night. They will be here til Tuesday morning so I am looking forward to getting caught up with her.Sh Don't tell her but I am hoping I can get some stuff painted while she is here. She is so talented. I will just casually bring it up one day like hey that would be nice to have hanging on my wall right here but I am sure you don't have the time, she'll say yes I do and I'll say I don't want to put you out but okay what are you waiting for start painting you're only here til Tuesday for heavens sake!:)
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
