Good Morning Company Girls!
This is how you usually find Donald....with a sleeping babe in his arms...we always joked that it was a race to see who fell asleep first!
...the first babe we ever had was our eldest daughter and I wasn't feeling well with a cold and was resting in the bedroom...when I came out there he was with the new born baby in the crook of one arm, while wiping down the kitchen counter with the other....he always is so relaxed with the babies that a pose like this is not unusual!...

...every year we try to get to the Lilac Dell at our Royal botanical gardens to take in all the beautiful lilacs...it's a very peaceful and serene place and as we walked around, hubby decided that this would be a good pic....cute huh?

Last year, we were in Houston for a financial conference that hubby was attending and hubby knows that one of my very favourite places is the Riverwalk in San Antonio ..so he surprised me and said on the Sunday afternoon that we were going there...I was ever so pleased!


...Last Summer, hubby decided that I needed a mid-summer break and arranged a whole weekend away, complete with child(teen) care...we went to this little harbour town that had a little railway trip...this shot was taken on the train....



This is the guy that I met almost 40 years ago! He was 16 years years old at the time and next week we should, Lord willing, be celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary!
The above pictures have been taken at various times in the last year.....
This guy has spoiled me for so many years....my mother, who was also spoiled by my dad, pointed her finger at me the other day and said...'just wait..you'll be in the same spot as I am,...Don does everything for you just as your dad did for me...and now I don't know what to do'....I acknowledged that she was correct.....he does do everything...he brings me a mug of tea every morning before he leaves for work, if I'm too tired to make supper, and he's home, than he does, he changes the sheets on our bed ..which started years ago when he didn't like how I made the bed and now it works out great for me..have you tried lifting the corners of those pillow top mattresses?...and he likes to plan getaways that are a surprise......today is his day off and he's said all week that he was taking me out for the first anniversary supper...(when I said why was he calling it the first he said 'cause we'd have another one on our anniversary', which is the 16th)....
anyways.....last night, as he showed me on the computer where we were going...up til now, he'd only tell me that it was scenic and I was to be prepared to be surprised and amazed......he said that not only were we going there for supper..we are staying overnight....the kids would be looked after......pretty nice eh?...yes...I am spoiled...I will be the first to admit it.
So, I hope you all have a lovely weekend....hopefully next Company Girls I'll have pictures of where we are going!
Take Care!

Happy Anniversary - you are very blessed by a wonderful husband! I know just how you feel, since God chose to bless me too! You have 19 years of marriage on us, but Lord willing we will get to where you are one day - right now we're still in the throws of parenting and homeschooling our 9 & 12 year old blessings!

I started to comment on Friday and I obviously got sidetracked. Not uncommon for me lately. ;/
Happy Anniversary! Congratulations to you both. What a great guy you have. So thoughtful!
Isn't San Anton great! My parents were stationed there with the Army when I was in college.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Hope you have a great week!
