Look closely at the shirt..he is getting to be so active and getting in so much trouble. His latest thing is water..loves any kind of water whether it's in the bath or the toilet. Fun for me..if he wasn't so chubby and cute, I don't know what I would do. Can you believe he is almost 11 months? He's gonna start walking soon and I hope his chubby thighs don't hinder his walking..we'll see!!

Nice Surprise!!

Usually, I don't like to gush and gush about my husband however, I had to post this because it was so sweet of him. For those of you that know Steve well, he is such a loving guy but not a real poem, card or letter writer type of guy. I used to be such a huge holiday person..i.e. Valentines, big Anniversaries etc but Steve is so low key that we don't do the whole flower thing, or box of chocolates.

We joke about his ability to pick greeting cards in fact, because he always gets me the card from 7 eleven that is like the last Valentines card that usually is in Spanish, and is a bereavement card. He crosses out the words that don't apply and there you go. He loves to make me laugh with silly things like that and so I was shocked when..lo and behold the other day there was a knock at my door and here were these beautiful flowers with this sweet card that said, "Just because I love you". I was so impressed with his efforts and had to share...They made my shout out to my other half!

Daddy Daughter Dance

Abbey and Steve attended the City of Frisco's Daddy Daughter Dance last weekend and had the greatest time. Steve said Abbey really got into the dancing, of course and they had a great time with friends. They ate out first at Chili's then went onto the dance. She was so excited about her wristlet that she wanted to wear it to church the next day..she's so funny. They had a great time together, which is mainly because they are two peas in a pod.

I am a Fanilow!!

This is my favorite song of his.. I am kind of a closet Barry fan but my sister had extra tickets for this show tonight so I dragged Steve with me to see it. I have already seen him twice before but it was just as great this time. He had so many great songs and I pretty much grew up listening to him on eight tracks believe it or not. I can't believe I am that old!! It is a little bitter sweet because I have so many great memories of his music because my mom loved it but also because so much of his music reminds me of my dad that passed away when I was young. Needless to say, he was great and played a beautiful black grand piano for most of the concert. The highlight of the night was when they showed a video clip of him in 1975 playing "Mandy" on this show called Midnight Special. We watched the video for the first verse and then the lights went up on the stage and this huge white grand piano came up from the floor with him playing...then at the end he sang with the video again in cool. I know this sounds so cheesy but I loved it. He ended with, of course, Copacabana!! I was dancing and I think Steve was embarassed but whatever! At least we had a night out together even though we were rocking out to Barry!

I have been tagged..

In honor of Valentines, I will break down and tell all about my other, better half. I have been tagged several times, but never done it it goes. BTW, I am starting with this cute pic of Steve I found today..if Scotty isn't's crazy how much they look alike, and the song playing right now is one of "ours"...old school Kenny Chesney!

What is his full name? Steven Micheal Frederick

How long have you been married? It will be 12 years on November 22nd! WOW..does that make me old?

How long did you date? We dated 4 months and were engaged 4 months.

Who eats more sweets? Probably me but we might actually tie on that one..he tends to be more of a late night nacho with cheese man.

Who said I love you first? He did ... which I thought he was joking but he was serious. His mom actually asked him in front of me the first time we met if he loved me, so maybe he felt he better follow up and really say it!?

How old is he? 33

Who is taller? He is..almost 6 feet tall.

Who is smarter? Common sense wise..he is, but I am definitely the multi tasker and am very efficient. As far as math goes though, he puts me to shame.

Who can sing better? Him..I can't really carry a all!

Who does the laundry? Me unless I am too slow, he'll start to gather a load together to give me that hint that laundry time has come.

Who pays the bills? I do. I have tried many times to hand it over but I am too much of a control freak!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does..close to the alarm because I will sleep through it.

Who mows the lawn? Steve..I tried but couldn't even get the thing started, not to mention that I burned the grass with the edger. No more mowing for me.

Who cooks dinner? Mostly me. I have the same 5 recipes I repeat so when he gets sick of it, he'll cook. He is so much better at it than me. Our first meal after we got married was chicken parmasean, that was burnt on the outside and frozen on the inside!!I've come a long way actually.

Who drives? Usually me because he drives too slow and I am a backseat driver. If we aren't in a hurry than he drives.

Who is more stubborn? Me.. Steve's too laid back to be stubborn.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me first..which I wasn't ready for so our next one was days later and that was great!

Who asked who out? He asked me to go bowling with a group of friends which I didn't end up going however, he showed up at my house after..he was persistent. Good thing he was..

Who has more siblings? Technically, I do if you include my step brothers. I have 2 sisters and 6 brothers. He has 2 sisters and a brother that passed away when he was 16 of cancer. That is who Scotty is named after.

Who wears the pants? I think Steve likes me to think I do, but we are probably about equal. He calls me on all my crap and I do the same for him.

I added this question myself: Who's funnier? If you all know Steve than that is a no brainer. He is the funniest person and there is never a dull moment with him. He is witty, and keeps things in our marriage fun. Even when I have had a bad day, I can always count on him to make me laugh. He really is such a great husband, dad and person. I hope he knows how much I truly love him. This sounds cheesy but he is my match in every way and I feel lucky to have him..Here is one of my favorite pics of us: Happy V-day to everyone!!

Okay, I will admit- I still can't get enough of it..It still makes me laugh every time. This got me laughing so hard..maybe because I am overly tired but hope you enjoy. By the way, my favorite part is "Frosty, Frosty." It will fun to see how this season turns out!
