On this day, I asked myself why did God choose me to have this horrible accident that totalled my husband's car, with my infant in the backseat, and the day before my Golden Birthday? It took me a few days to remember how I felt before the accident. All the weird signs reminded me that he works in mysterious ways....if I hadn't tightened Parker's straps he may have been hurt, if my stomach hadn't growled I may have never went this unusual way and gotten into the accident, if I hadn't had the accident would we have realized that the airbags in the car were defective and if we were to have gotten into a bigger accident or were going much faster would we have survived? Or, when would I have gotten a chest xray to see the spot on my lung? When it was too late or complications arose? I know this sounds strange, but I feel a little blessed that this happened when and how it did. Parker and I walked away with only a few bumps and bruises that will heal, the other lady walked away with bruises from her seat belt, but all 3 of us walked away with another sunny morning to wake up to, another day to cherish, and new cars to go shopping for! :) Yes, both cars were totalled. :(

Well, I thought my Valentine's Day was over after that night, but my husband had a surprise up his sleeve! We had talked about going out to lunch on Monday since we both had the day off, but he wouldn't tell me where we were going. He gave me a hint that morning and said they have egg rolls there. I knew it had to be Chinese because we were just talking about it the other day. We drove over 45 min and I had no idea why he was driving so far away when there were Chinese restaurants in town by us. Then, I saw the sign.....BENNIGANS!!! This is my favorite restaurant, but recently they all closed down...or so I thought. Jamie looked online and found only 1 still open in this area. It wasn't the fancy restaurant that he used to take me to when we were dating, and we had a small little companion with us that we have never had on our romantic Valentine's dinner before, but it was the best surprise. I must recommend their chicken tenders..I know a little childish, but they are so delicious and I get them every single time I've ever been there.
How was your Valentine's Day? Did you share it with the love of your life, a special friend, or a little rug rat that makes your heart smile?

This past weekend we went back home to take more pictures with my family...all 15 of us!!! It was a very interesting day, but one we will always cherish. We had these taken at Picture People in Merrillville...the total cost for a CD there was $250....a HUGE difference!!
1 Dad + 1 Mom + 2 Sisters + 1 Brother + 1 Sis-in-law + 1 Husband + 1 Son + 4 Neices + 2 Nephews + Me = One gigantic family picture!!!
1st pic: My 2 Sisters, Brother, and Myself; 2nd pic: My really adorable family!; 3rd pic: My Neices and Nephews, plus Parker (all the Grandchildren)
So, now that I have shared a secret with you, please don't tell Jamison! Like I can keep a secret (you all just found out how good I am at that) I will most likely tell him as soon as he walks in the door tonight! :) We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!
