the hanson's celebrate a decade plus 1/10th of a decade

Picture from when I was hugely pregnant with Miyo:
I have writer's block. Except that I am no writer so maybe I have blogger's block. Anyway, nothing much going on around here except laundry and dishes and sweeping areas that are really bad, while ignoring the bedrooms that the doors on can't even close they are so full of crap on the floor.
On Saturday Ben and I will have been married for 11 years so we are having a family day. Except Murphy who is going to Hutchinson with my sister Kady for Friday and Saturday nights. He would rather get out and have some fun, I think, then pretend to care about the presents we are wrapping. I struggled with this. Do I let her take him to see family out there (and my parents who are visiting), or do I keep him home and bored, except for food and presents?
I am going to buy, or make, a cake and make a chicken in the crock pot, maybe? I am going to decorate with "Happy Anniversary" and balloons (don't tell Shene, haha). I am getting a KitchenAid Mixer and Ben and Miles are getting a (DO NOT TELL MILES! IT'S A SURPRISE!) Wii. We are going to hook it up on Friday night, and I am thinking of putting wrapping paper on the entertainment center for him (Miles) to rip off. I'm still not sure for Miyo, but I think maybe a Barbie convertible? For Murphy books and animal toys as usual, he knows what he likes. I should use my mixer to make the cake that morning! Just thought of that. Then Ben wants to go out just him and me, without the kids, but we have to try and find a babysitter for that to happen. So I am excited about Saturday.

Happy 10th Anniversary! My baby sister is beating me to 10 years. I've made several attempts. I believe I've had 15 total. I think I'll get myself something too. Anyway, congrats and have a wonderful weekend.
