9th Anniversary Surprise!

My hubby is the greatest!!! I've been wanting a new washer and dryer for a while now. 
6 people in the family + a dryer that takes 3 hours to dry one load of clothes = one busy mamma (well, one busy dryer anyway)
So my plan was that I would save up money, from Easter, Mother's Day, our Anniversary, Christmas....until whenever.  I asked Peter if I could just have the money he would spent on presents for me and I would save it to buy a new washer/dryer. He thought this was a bad idea because he likes getting me presents and it made me sound "like a Jr. Higher", but he agreed. 
However, my wonderful hubby ruined my money saving plan. On our 9th Anniversary (May 13th), which happened to be a Bible study night, he surprised me! As soon as our whole HFG sat down, Peter was explaining the Great GPS Race, we were picking teams, figuring out the GPS's and then we were off. Peter's race led us on a lovely, rainy tour of Lakewood from Solo Point to the first schoolhouse in Lakewood. Our team won!! And when we got back Peter had Martinelli's and champagne and an ice cream cake!  Then he asked me to get the hors d'oeuvres off of the dryer and I screamed when I saw them - My brand new GE, energy efficient,  high capacity washer and dryer. AAAaaaaa! My Pop and he had been installing them while we were off "racing". 
It was a great Anniversary! I love my hubby.
