Best. Valentine. Gift. EVER.

Y'know, besides that big shiny ring he got me ten years ago.  

My crazy husband had me in tears laughing with his gift for me this year.  When I saw what Ginny had going on over at her site, I was tempted to participate.  But when I asked my husband a few days ago if I could take a picture of him (and why), he just gave me that look like "woman, WHY would you ever even ASK me such a thing?"  Pretty much a look that I've gotten used to over the years.

Then today, he set the computer in front of me and gave me the valentine gift that he'd been planning before I had even brought any of that up...He made 35 of these.  THIRTY FIVE...in slide show format and in chronological order throughout our ten years together.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time, I tell you.  Here are some of my favorites, leaving out the ones that no one else but us would understand...













What do you think??  I'm pretty sure Ryan Gosling's got nothing on this guy.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing those. I laughed with tears in my eyes. With 9 kiddos and all those birhtdays I am so bad about cakes for anyone. The cake/brownie one is my favorite. I had kids come down stairs to find out why I was crying. Perfect.
