My Sweet Hubby!

I was in the bedroom putting away laundry just now, when Drew came in and said, "Mom, have you been in the freezer lately?" I said, "No, why?" "You gotta come see this!" So off I went to the kitchen. Drew had big smile on his face and said, "Open it." I did, and this is what I found!
Greg left last night for a fishing trip with his buddies Kevin and Marc. Our friends Kevin and Maryrose were supposed to be leaving for their annual fishing trip up in the Sierras and Maryrose wound up having to stay home at the last minute. So she encouraged Kevin to go, and he asked Greg and Marc to go along with him. I was actually glad he did, because I wanted him so scout it out for us. We tried to go up with them last year in October, but wound up having motorhome troubles about 30 minutes from home and had to turn around and go home, missing out on a fun weekend in Paradise with the Kelley's. So....I was over at my Mom's when he left last night, and didn't see him off, but apparently, he snuck this into the freezer for me. My favorite treat is frozen yogurt from Golden Spoon! He often goes to get me one after dinner, and he knows I almost always get the same thing, being the creature of habit that I am......cake batter with carob chips. So...what a surprise to find this today, with Drew's help! I will enjoy it tonight after Noah goes to sleep. ( I am babysitting for Eri and Jer )
Thank you honey!! You're the best, and yes, it IS better than flowers!!!!!
PS He calls me "Buns" or "Bunny" or "Bunnigan" most all the time. Oh, and sometimes "Puddin" Don't ask...........
And the grandkids call him "Geeps."

I remember reading an article entitled, "my husband never brings me flowers" but went on to expound on the many ways he expressed his love even without flowers. I love that he knew exactly what you'd love to have! What a great husband.

I'm sure Kevin was thrilled that Greg and Marc got to go. I hope he enjoys it because I would love for us all to try that trip again. I have tried not to think about missing Twin Lakes, but I did pull some old pics.
PS
I didn't get yogurt either.. boo hoo.

I'm at home now as I speak ;( I needed a least a few more days in CA!! I wish I had a chance to see you and the girls and your grandchildren again, I truly am bummed about that. And, we got home late last night to a brand new backyard that didn't get water and is mostly dead ;( Sean was up all night with a case of the stomach mishaps, and my house smelled too!!! Humpphhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I want to come back!!!
I will try to be back to Donavon's Wedding in October, so I will be able to see everyone again ;)
