Today Brett and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.
Guess what we did... NOTHING!
That is right, we spent the day doing nothing just like we did pre-Maxwell (he was very happy spending the day with Grandma!)
Brett and I watched the shows we had recorded for weeks, ordered pizza, took a nap, and watched a movie the whole way through (Mission Impossible 3... very good.)
It was just a wonderful way to spend our anniversary.
I thank God everyday for such a wonderful husband. I am very blessed.

Valentine's day is my favorite holiday...
... because everything is pink (my favorite color), and there are lots of hearts and flowers.
There are special traditions for Valentine's day at the Lawrence house.
A special dinner that usually consists of some sort of pasta dish, my favorite (you can see how much Maxwell's face enjoyed it in the photo above!)
Of course, we can't forget the valentine gift bag exchange!
This year Maxwell helped me make oatmeal raisin cookies for Daddy which are Brett's favorite.
Brett got a golf gift certificate in his v-day bag. He is very excited about the approach of spring and being able to golf every Saturday morning again.
Brett got me tickets to see my favorite band, Daughtry, which just so happens to be touring with Bon Jovi, who I also like a lot.
I was upset with him for being late for dinner, but when he showed up with a beautiful arrangement of flowers I was over it... mostly.
My mom was here for dinner and she got me some great gifts too (books and angel stuff.)
I also was able to arrange my work schedule so I could help with the Valentine's day party at Maxwell's preschool. It was a fun party for the kids and I got some fun party game ideas.
I am using this blog to help with my scrapbook journaling. I can just print it when I come to that page (thanks for that tip, Myon.) So that is why there may be more details then anyone cares about.
I am sad that Valentine's day is over for another year.
But, looking forward to the next holiday... MY BIRTHDAY!

It was so nice to get away for the night. My mom watched Sittler and Toby, and we took Maple with us.
It was nice to be free of puppy duty for the night. Thanks, Mom!
Wendy and Kevin have two great kids Blake (12 ) and Alyssa (7). Maxwell loves Alyssa and counts down the hours until he sees her. Wendy and I have been friends since 2nd grade.
I wish she lived closer, but then the times we get to spend together with our families may be more special because it does not happen every day.
