JEREMY, my husband
Okay when you are stuck in the kitchen all day assembling cheeseballs, you have lots of time to think and ponder on many, many things. And since I am going to make my husband get on here tonight and read a week's worth of blogs, I thought I would write about him for a moment.

Even though he is the busiest UPS man in Dallas/Highland Park area this Christmas, he took the time to chop EVERYTHING for all of my 36 cheeseballs. Yes, I have an electric chopper but you still have to chop some before putting it in the chopper. He knew it would be easier on me today if he helped so he went back to being my sous chef so I could spend the day being the executive chef. I would probably have already been done, but I have to take breaks because my back starts hurting and my feet and my ribs, etc. (reminder-34 weeks pregnant!) I have a right to take breaks! :) Anyway, as I was assembling the 26th cheeseball (10 more to go), a song starting playing on my iPod that almost made me start crying.

We have always been country music fans. Before we met, we loved and when we met and realized we had similar taste in music, the icing was on the cake! Both of us adore George Strait and Alan Jackson. So one night I was getting ready for a date we were going on (this was about two months ago) and I noticed he was on iTunes. It's become our favorite website for sure! Anyway, he downloaded an Alan Jackson song and said, "Babe, I want you to hear this song. It's my song to you." Even though Jeremy is a sensitive, very loving man towards His wife, I was kind of shocked that he had found a song that described how he felt about me. It was totally a moment for us and I cried. I think he did too, but he won't admit it. Just like he won't admit he was crying like a baby at our wedding. Needless to say, the song is on my iPod and I listen to it ALL THE TIME.

He makes my life so much easier. He helps me so much with the kids and helps me with everything else. He is my biggest fan and he makes me so happy. I never knew it was possible to have a husband that loves me like he does. I am so blessed.

I love you Jeremy. You are my best friend.

Like Red on a Rose- by Alan Jackson

Like red on a rose
When your lips first smiled at me
I was captured instantly
To each his own

Like blue in the sky
The gaze of your willing eyes
Touched something deep inside
The truth be known

That I love you
like all little children love pennies
And I love you cause
I know that I can't do anything wrong
You're where I belong
Like red on a rose

And I love you like
all little children love pennies
And I love you like
good times of which I've known many
And I love you cause
I know you give me a heart of my own
You make my blood flow
Like red on a rose

Sweet man!! Be sure after the holidays and when things settle to take a few "date" nights before Ezekial comes. Remind eachother how wonderful you both are and how great your kids are. 3 months girl, and he'll be sleeping through the night! You can do it!!!
Sorry, that kinda got off track what you wrote.
