So, I am a bit late on the tribute to my husband on our 11th anniversary, but aren't I always a little late?

I just wanted to list a few things about him that make me love him. And even after eleven years, I still love him.

First, he wrote me that poem.

This is not the first poem that he wrote for me. On Valentines day 2000 he wrote me this one:

Little One

When we first met, it was love at first sight
A burp nothing more and my heart took flight
Come to my house with me tonight
I have cereal to eat and matches to light

Beautiful locks of golden hair
Bluish green eyes give me piercing stare
Dancing and singing with never a care
I know I must have this beauty rare

A few months now have passed by
Sunday night just she and I
Pop the question? Surely I'd die
Must resist the twinkle in here eye

The sun came out on our wedding day
The sound of angelic birds at play
I'm going to marry golden locks today
My little one, here to stay

Three years gone by, my love increases
One million massages one billion kisses
Through pains and aches and tiny sneezes
My heart, my soul, my mind she pleases

*He is definitely the romantic one in our relationship. I'm not sure if that has to do with the fact that I was raised with all brothers and he was raised with all sisters or not, but I love that about him.
*He loves music. Not just any music, but strange music that most people have never heard of.
*He works harder than most men I know. He works full-time and goes to school full time and still finds the time to spend with the kidlets and help me out.
*He is the best dad EVER! The kidlets always prefer him over me. (and I don't mind)
*Patience.....did I say patience? Yes. He is the most patient man in the world. He has to be, he has to put up with me. I have no patience, I was not blessed with this virtue. He was.
*He never has anything bad to say about anyone! (I know huh...He married me!)
*He really likes totino's pizza rolls.
*He loves to take me to dinner. Unfortunately I hate his faves (Mexican and Sushi). So he always takes me to my faves. (mostly Italian)
*He is always telling me how beautiful I am and how much he loves me.
*He kisses me every morning before he leaves for work. I usually don't remember since he leaves at about 5:30 a.m.
*He doesn't like sweets. This is a good thing since I LOVE them.
*He tolerates me, and that is a huge strength in anyone.
*He is so smart. He is working on a MBA/TM degree!
*He likes Henry Weinhardt root beer.
*He is so thoughtful, always thinking of others before himself.
*He honors his priesthood, and is the patriarch of our home.
*He likes things very clean.
*He respects me. Not only that but he teaches the kidlets to do the same.
*He is so supportive of the many adventures of the kidlets and I.
*He understands my crazy emotions.
*He is my better half, he completes me!

I tried to find a picture of our wedding day on the computer, but apparently I have never scanned a picture before. But I am going to, because you might all get a kick at how young/little we were. So keep checking back for that.

He made reservations for us at Haxton Manor we stayed in the Sussex Suite. It was so much fun. We had decided earlier that we would go around town to some of our favorite restaurants and get an appetizer from each place, take them back to the room and eat! Oooooo, there is nothing better than yummy food. This is what we had:

Pot Stickers from PF Chang's
Pomadorie Mozerella from Caffe Molise
Baked Cream Cheese from The Do Do
& Fried Pickles from The Garden

It was so yummy! We also played about 100 games of BLINK. I'm pretty sure I won most of the games. Oh, that's another thing about Aaron that I love, he is not a sore loser:)
