Mike and I just saw Wicked yesterday! It was amazing! The best show I think I've ever seen! Mike got me tickets for Christmas. He went all out!!!!He got me box seats! We had dinner and dessert served to us all during the show! We had a special "VIP" entrance and parking!! It was such a nice day and it was great to share that with Mike! I've been wanting to see the show forever, since it sold out in St. Louis I thought I was going to have to make a trip to Chicago! Christmas rolled around and I got the tickets!!! Mike had to tickets wrapped up in a big box with weights in it to really throw me off! It was just wonderful! I don't know how after 7 years he is still surprising me, but he is!!! I LOVE HIM!!!!! I put together a slide show of our pictures from the day!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Lights!!

Last night my family went to see the Christmas lights display at Rock Springs Park in Alton. It was a lot of fun! We took some hot chocolate and just drove through the lights! It was my Grandmas first time in Alton so we drove her by the McPike Mansion. It really didn't look that must be the Christmas spirit!!!
On our way to see the Christmas lights!! Zoe even enjoyed them she kept looking at the light and then back at Mike and I like,"What is all of this!!" It was so cute!
Some of my favorite pics from the night!

Lobster Night....yickes!!

Well Mikes boss sent us a BIG lobster dinner all the way from Maine!!! It was crazy, they send the lobsters....alive.... in a metal box that's inside a bigger Styrofoam box! It came with a manual on how to cook and crack the lobsters all kind of treats!! We had Jason and Lauren over to help us enjoy them!! It was a lot of fun!

Our lobster...

This is our Christmas picture this year (we actually got some snow!!!). I'm so thankful for my husband. Mike is always there for me and I love what our love has grown into. He such a good friend and really is my strength. Sometimes I don't know how I would get through a day without him! Anyway I just wanted to take a sec and say that!
