Has it really been four years?

March 26, 2009 marks our fourth anniversary. I cannot believe that four years have passed. Tonight, Michael asked me if I had any regrets. My reply, "No, it was the best decision I have ever made."
This is a picture from the rehearsal dinner.

Four reasons that this was the best decision I've ever made:
  1. Loving him is just so easy.
  2. I feel more complete than I ever did before.
  3. If everyone had such a happy marriage, the world would be a much better place.
  4. We bring out the best in each other.
Four reasons I'm still so in love with him:
  1. He makes me laugh all the time.
  2. He is my best friend. This is a common statement, but it truly entails everything it means.
  3. He listens to me and forgives me when I don't always listen to him.
  4. Every day is new. With him, I never feel that we're stuck in the same old same old.

Four reasons I know I picked my Mr. Right:
  1. We think alike. We can share a glance and we know exactly what the other is thinking.
  2. There's no one in the world that I could possibly see myself getting old with.
  3. I know I can face any obstacle if we are together.
  4. We are a team. Our name is Team Pace.

Mr. and Mrs. John Michael Pace

What a WILD Week!

The week began with some really crazy weather! After it snowed at church in the morning, it snowed again late in the afternoon. So, I was able to get pictures of our house and street covered in a blanket of white. Not a very thick blanket, but a blanket, nonetheless!

Our House

The Front Yard

Down the Street

The Backyard

Funny how everything looks better with snow on it!

I was actually pretty happy that we did have school on Monday. It was Dr. Seuss's birthday and that is a special day for our school and the media center. Monday actually kicked off an entire week of activities most of which include something I LOVE to do-DRESS UP!

Here is Anita, the media clerk, and me dressed in our matching Cat in the Hat shirts made by Heather Britton.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Tuesday was Green Eggs and Ham Day, so we all wore green. Allyson's teacher in her daycare class said she was having green eggs and ham, too. Allyson didn't have to wear green, but why not?

I love this picture with a kindergarten class at my school. The whole class wore green They all look so cute! Kindergarten is a special age to my heart.
Look at the little girl to the right. She's got a very sweet pose!

Today, my friend Heather's kids came dressed as Thing 1 and Thing 2. She's so creative; she made their outfits. We took a picture together. I am the Cat in the Hat, without whiskers and a tail, though!

Lastly, here is a picture of all the winners from Crazy Hat Day. Each teacher chose a winner for the craziest hat in each class. The winners got a free book of their choice and a picture taken that I will send to the Houston Home Journal.
After school, I heard three of the students in this picture talking excitedly with their grandmother who had helped them make winning hats. They were so excited about their prizes and having a picture made and all the fun they had all day long getting to wear a crazy hat. It was so nice to hear those excited children and know that their good time that they just might remember forever was because of me.
Notice Heather's kids were both winners in their classes.

And, at the end of the school day, I put on shorts and running shoes and walked 2 1/2 miles close to the school with our PE teacher. Yes, weird, huh? It snowed Sunday and today I had on shorts walking around outside.
What a WILD Week!

A Snowy Sunday in Warner Robins

During church today, it snowed!
Everyone rushed outside immediately after services to see big, white, wet flakes.
Here are the Lesters! They just can't help smiling!
Snow in Georgia is just a little magical.

Well, little Riley took a spill.

He got a little muddy and Mama isn't smiling anymore!

And, what does Allyson think of the snow?

Look behind Tammy. You'll see it was really coming down!

Hailey was very excited about the snow!

The snow was sticking much better to all of the cars. See it on the window?

It looked so pretty to me.

When we left church, it really did seem to stick a bit.
Here are a few pictures I took going down Watson Blvd.

Well, this was as we turned off Watson to have lunch at Quizno's.

Even after lunch, crossing Houston Lake Rd.

I couldn't wait to get home and take a picture of our house covered in snow. But, by the time we got home, it had started drizzling. The snow was gone. :(
Here are a couple videos of the kids playing in the snow after church.
