All About MY Husband -- LeAnna did this and I thought I would join in!!

What is his name? William Richard Hoffman, JR -

How long have you been married? 6 years (although last I heard from Rich it has been 5 years)

How long did you date? We were friends for 5 years, then we dated for 1.5 years before we got engaged. We were engaged for one year to the day.

How old is he? 31 - but if you ask him - he won't know that.

Who said "I love you first?" I am not sure.

Who is taller? Rich - thank goodness!

Who eats more sweets? Well, depends on how many low blood sugars he has had. But usually it is me getting into the chocolate!

Who can sing better? Probably me? Hard to say, he is a good singer.

Who is smarter? Depends - computers - definitely him. Spelling - definitely me.

Who does the laundry? I do it the majority of the time - but he helps with it sometimes.

Who pays the bills? This is an Erin job for the sake of all parties involved.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does.

Who mows the lawn? I do. He clears the snow.

Who cooks dinner? I do - I love to cook, when I have time!

Who drives? I do - I get car sick easily and Rich likes to multitask while driving.

Who is more stubborn? Rich would say me, I would say Rich. We both are.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me first - but it took him awhile to work up the guts to.

Who asked who out first? Hard to say - we were great friends prior to dating - I don't know when the transition occurred and who asked whom. I probably asked him.

Who proposed? He did and it was one of the few times in my life I was TOTALLY surprised.

Who has more siblings? We both have two siblings. He has two sisters and I have two brothers.

Hope you enjoyed learning about the love of my life!

The Easter Bunny

We were happy. We were going on a stroller ride and we saw the Easter Bunny. We played on the equipment. I went in the door and that was fun. Then I went back in the door. Disney Store, yep, yep, yep. Eat cookie. Then we went home.

The above is word for word, Elizabeth's account of our Easter Bunny outing.

Here is the picture that Rich was telling you about. (Wasn't his post funny! It is just as random as the way he thinks!)

HA! Rich is posting....

All right kids - here is my first post! For as much as I use computers I really don’t dig email forwards, chat programs, etc. But more about what you came for - family stuff:

Big Ben is sick and not feeling well. Our little man is getting to be such a big person. Erin loves the baby stage but I love the kid stage. I love the stage Elizabeth is at and Ben is trying so hard to be just as big. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want them to grow too fast - but I am so glad we are done potty training with her. I am sure that after every potty break when she is an adult she will crave a Starburst…actually two! Bad parent’s maybe, but I am a push over for her. You will not believe how many crap yellow Starbursts I have eaten to leave her favorite flavors for her…

Oh funny story – Yesterday we went to the mall and saw the Easter Bunny! It was loads of excitement for little E. I felt a little guilty because they have the big bunny on a chair and two girls who make the kid smile and takes pictures to sell. Well, we walk in – slap the kids on each leg – Erin’s big fancy camera pops out and she takes pictures as she stands IN FRONT of their camera. I honestly hope she did not upset the big bunny because I am sure he talks to Santa. Do you have any idea what would happen to our us if they team up and take us down? Will someone please slip him some cash when they walk by and say it is from the Hoffman’s?

Happy Birthday Benjamin

It doesn't seem possible that it has been a year since we had Benjamin! I thought life passed quickly with Elizabeth - but time is going even more quickly with two! Yikes!

Here are some pictures from Ben's first birthday!

We had a puppy party theme - carefully picked out by Elizabeth. Here are the puppy cupcakes.

Once Ben got his cupcake - he took one taste, gave a look of great satisfaction - then stuffed the cupcake down beside him so that no one could take it away. (Can you tell his older sister likes to "share" his snacks?)

He got a playhouse as a gift and it was a big hit for all!!
