I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Happy Birthday My Love

Today, St. Patrick's Day, is a very special day. Everyone is supposed to wear green, remember St. Patrick bringing the good news of Christ to the island of Ireland, and look for their lucky four leaf clover.
But for me, it has an even better thing to celebrate - the birth of my one true love.
Today Andy turns 30. My Leprechaun is the same age as me for two short months and can no longer call me his "old lady", as he loves to do for the rest of the year!

On Saturday we had a small birthday party for him.

Ribs, pasta salad, fresh rolls and potato chips.

Kid friendly cake, with the mandatory 3 0 candles.

Adult friendly, very delicious, soaked in liquor, made by my friend Mary, Tiramisu - Andy's favorite desert. (and a very cheesy grin also...)

My favorite birthday guest, Mary's new baby, wearing an outfit that use to belong to my boys - years and years ago. Man, do they grow fast!
Little Maddy, playing with the streamers and balloons.
It was supposed to just be a few friends over, but when Andy ran out to get the ribs, the boys and I ran to Wally world and bought balloons, streamers and a birthday banner.
We had to dress it up a little, right? It is the big three oh!!

Happy Birthday Andy!!
