3 Years down!! MANY more to go!!

Three years ago I married
my very bestist friend!
As I refer to him as "my most favorite"
There are SO many reasons why I love Daniel Peacock, so I will list just a few...

1. This man loves me no matter what my faults are, and there are many :)
2. No matter how crummy my day is and how negative I can be he reminds me to keep faith and be more optimistic
3. He is a bit of a penny pincher, obviously I am not, so he keeps us stable
4. He spoils me and our baby Bentley rotton
5. I can see myself growing so very grey and wrinkley with this man and he will still think I'm beautiful
6. He is a little Bob Vila and makes are home our own and pretty nice if I will say so myself
7. Seeing him with my dad...well I'm not going to get emotional, but I could not have found a more perfect fit for the Coleman family
8. He is my rock
9. His laugh, oh my goodness, his laugh
10. He puts up with this social butterfly even though he is as shy as they come
11. etc, etc, etc or as his favorite show Seinfield would say...
yada, yada, yada

For our 3 year Anniversary we celebrated with going to dinner and just enjoying each other's company. We decided to save money this year with no extravagent gifts or a trip because Lord help us we are still renovating our kitchen and just put a down payment on granite countertops!
We went to Local 463 in Madison and dinner was nice but we decided that no one can beat it still remains our favorite. Before dinner we exchanged gifts:

I got my Peter's salt and pepper shakers!!! Yay!! along with a new platter,
first piece I own in white

and for Daniel I gave us a joined gift...
for those of you who watch the Office you understand the meaning of this gift:

These are Jim and Pam bobbleheads from the Office. I got us one each so that we both can keep them in our office and I must say it is already doing the job...when I have a moment i push Pam's head and it makes me smile and think of him :)
A quick catch up on this couple...they have the cutest relationship on any show...humor, hardships, love...they have the whole package
Daniel also received 2 new pairs of dress pants for work.....proves how old we are getting

We had a wonderful Easter in Sturgis this year.
First night started with a movie and Easter candy with the fam.
Second day consisted of flying kites and repairing the awning above my parents garage (poor dad got stung by a wasp in the process). 
That afternoon we all piled up in the Chevrolet to head to town to visit Mamaw. 
We made some great Easter cookies for her..
the next day, Saturday, we flew the kites once more and ALL day mom and I decorated Easter cookies and Grank and I made a rainbow cheesecake:

 Then that night we went to Supper Club with some amazing friends.

Sunday morning was the main event!!
Friendship Baptist had an Easter cantata to celebrate our loving Lord and that he died on the cross to save ALL for their sins and rose on the third day, that day being Easter Sunday! My mother sang a small back-up special during the musical and I could not have been more proud of her! She did a great job!!

Matthew 27:45-61

At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock. At about three o'clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lemasabachthani?"—which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
Some of the bystanders misunderstood and thought he was calling for the prophet Elijah. One of them ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, holding it up to him on a stick so he could drink. But the rest said, "Leave him alone. Let's see whether Elijah will come and save him."
Then Jesus shouted out again, and he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain in the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead after Jesus' resurrection. They left the cemetery, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.
The Roman officer and the other soldiers at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened. They said, "Truly, this was the Son of God!"
And many women who had come from Galilee with Jesus to care for him were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary (the mother of James and Joseph), and Zebedee's wife, the mother of James and John. As evening approached, Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea, who was on of Jesus' followers, went to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long linen cloth. He placed it in his own new tomb, which had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance as he left. Both Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting nearby watching.

Matthew 28:1-7
Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to see the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, because an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.
Then the angel spoke to the women. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He has been raised from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now go quickly and tell his disciples he has been raised from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember, I have told you."

John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.

We hope everyone had a Blessed Easter!!
