The Wedding of Cheek and Teddy

May 19, 2008 - Cheek and Teddy became one today in a private ceremony surrounded by family and friends. The nuptials, officiated by Bean, and attended by Bub, Moo, Baby Elephant, and Marc and Beverly Shea, was THE event of the season.

The bride was resplendent in pink fur and the groom was handsome in white. The ceremony was brief and was capped off by a small kiss between the new husband and wife. The happy couple ask that in lieu of gifts, a donation be made to the Stuffed Animals of America Happiness Fund.

A great, big congratulations is necessary for my loving husband, Marc! As of May 5, 2008, my hubby is a college graduate! This has been a lot of hard work, a lot of sacrifice, and has taken a lot of dedication. College work can be hard but it is a lot harder when you have to juggle work, kids, a wife, church, family, moving, a career change, extracurricular activities, and school work. I have to say my husband has undergone a lot of stress to get to this point but he handled it well.

Marc, I am so proud of you. I know one of your biggest regrets was not finishing college and I saw how hard you were on yourself. But you knew you needed to do this for your family, so you pushed through all the tough times.

I am amazed at your strength of character and I want you to know what an inspiration you are. I am truly proud of you and proud to be your wife. The kids are proud of their Daddy, too. I love you, babe.

9 Things I Am Thankful For

1. God (No explanation necessary.)
2. My babies and their silly laughter (There's nothing like it. It is so sincere and has the power to make me laugh no matter what mood I'm in.)
3. My hubby (He knows why...)
4. Family and friends (Nothing more important in the whole world than my family and friends.)
5. Good food, good wine, good dessert (Ummm...making myself hungry.)
6. Turn signal that automatically turns itself off (Otherwise the click, click, click would drive me bonkers.)
7. Mute button (Oh, the joys of silence.)
8. Oldies music at a car show (There's something so cool about a bunch of people coming together and enjoying themselves in such a simple way and seeing Marc smile and reminisce is amazing.)
9. Cooking (I love making food people enjoy. Don't always get it right but when I do Marc closes his eyes and I get a very happy "ummmmmm" from him. Makes me happy.)
