Five years!!

Happy five years to my husband! 
To Andrew:  Five years ago today, you stated:
"I Andrew, take you Bethany to be my wife.  I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad;
in sickness and in health.  I will love you and honor you all the days of my life."

You have been my best friend, my rock, my counselor, my punching bag, my comedian, my confidant, and my everything over the last 5 years.  When the going got tough, you stayed right by my side and never let me give up.  You have followed your wedding vows to a T!!  We are SO LUCKY to have made it through the tough times...most couples do not and I am thankful for you and your friendship every day.  We have had so many great times together...and I cannot wait to make many more.  I am so very lucky to be your wife.

Christmas Day 2011

We had such a great Christmas this year!  Much thankfulness and reflection was had...thankful for our new little addition and sadness for those who couldn't be with us.  The kids had an amazing Christmas...Christmas is so much better when you have children to enjoy it with! :)

Our letter from Santa...our elf, Poppy (short for "popsicle) helped eat some of Santa's cookies...Mason was NOT happy about that!

Opening Santa gifts on Christmas morning

Good morning Adlee!  Apparently, Adlee is as much of a morning person as her mother is. :)

Our smiley little angel!

Looking so cute for Christmas morning Mass

At the Mauch Christmas - lovin' up Cody and Jazzy.

Andrew making fun of his nephews as usual :)

Mason thought his shepard cane was a sword - go figure!

"I'm not Mason, Daddy.  I'm A COW!"


Santa:  "What would you like for Christmas this year, Mason?"
Mason: "A buzz lightyear for Ethan and Colston."
(Mommy was so proud! :)

Brody and Mason both got Lightening McQueen tents - they were so excited!
