Tuesday’s Tribute

Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.

Remember Mission Monday? It’s officially been laid to rest, but in it’s place, Tuesday’s Tribute has been born. I love that Jay and Deb think in such cyclic terms…wait, I just love them period…despite the fact that I’m not Deb’s favorite red head. Sigh.

Back to Tuesday’s tribute…Love, Love, Love this idea.

First of all, it’ll keep me grounded. If it’s not all about me, then I’m going to be forced to talk about someone else. 🙂

Second of all….it gives me something concrete to talk about each Tuesday. And look forward to.

And thirdly….well, two reasons are enough, right?

This week, it’s only fitting that I talk about my husband. With the beginning of the New Year and all of the good feelings that abound, he won’t kill me for putting him in the spotlight. I don’t think. Plus, it’s not everyday that I can tell you all how great he is without sounding like a sap. I hate sounding like a sap.

This is my guy….LOVE HIM. Even if he does give me dirty looks occasionally and has no patience with my attempts to get a shot of him and the kids in front of the giant Christmas tree at Disneyland. He really is perfect in almost every way. And I’m really not being sarcastic here. 🙂

  3. mommaof4wife2r says

    good work angie! hubs here always wants to get the “gaston” look…u know the pompous dude from Belle and the Beast. Just once…a decent pic without his lips moving or licking his teeth to be funny! ha!

  4. What a lucky lady you are! He is handsome and wonderful. And that family you have is pretty darn gorgeous. I adore Garrett’s hat!

  5. I love pics of Daddys with their kids…too sweet!

  6. Love the tribute to your hubbie… isn’t it nice to have one that is a good daddy…. my hubby is too and I thank the Lord for hime every day…..

  7. As I like to say about Peter….he may not be perfect, but he’s perfect for me. 🙂 It’s great that you aren’t afraid to show your feelings for your husband. 🙂

  8. Great tribute. I just may have to go and play along. It fits nicely with my resolution to be more thankfull this year.

  9. You kids are adorable! Looks like y’all had fun at Disney!!

  10. Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) says

    What a great pic of your hubby and the kids. Kids and their daddys just melt my heart!!

  11. oh, good… i see i am not the only one that risks alienating you with inappropriate comments about your hubs being a cutie.

    and as always, the kiddos look adorable. LOVE the newsboy hat on mr. big stuff.

    thanks for playing along, you red-headed mama!

  12. Cheryl Lage says

    Personally, I think “sap” becomes you! 😉 He’s a cutie, you’re a knockout…what a sensational “circus!” Happy New Year, Angie!

  13. What is it with men (mine included) and pictures? lol!

  14. Tiaras and Tantrums says

    well, you are very lucky!

  15. The Pink Potpourri says

  16. Live.Love.Eat says

  17. Kelly Deneen says

    That is so sweet!! I love this idea too. 🙂

  18. Awww. I just love the pix of your gorgeous family! And it’s no surprise that your husband is a hottie too. Those kids got some great genes!
    Lovely tribute. 🙂

  19. love this post and i love the idea of the weekly tribute!

  20. Great pic and tribute- you’ve got a lovely family.

  21. what a great man, you are truly blessed.

  22. Evolving Mommy Catherine says

    At least you can get him in a picture mine is always behind the camera!

  23. Becoming Me says

    What a great meme and post…you hubby seems like an amazing guy

  24. What a fabulous idea! A day to talk about someone else. Does it have to be good?? lol

    Do you live right by Disneyland now? We are hoping to be there this time next year. It would be really cool to meet you….

    And, by the way, that older daughter of yours is stunning! She looks so much older than her years, which must scare the bejeepers out of you!

  25. Daily I hear God reminding me, “It’s not about you…” And most days I listen.

    This was special, Angie…and that is one gorgeous gang gathered under the big tree at Disneyland.

  26. of course he’s a handsome devil… and of course he’s perfect…

    he’s with YOU!

    🙂 love the idea of tribute tuesday!


  27. Straight to Your Hart says

    What a sweet tribute to him! Loving your husband that way is perfect…! Have a great day!

  28. Sounds like a wonderful man you have there! And that is well… WONDERFUL!

    Great tribute!

  29. Veggie Mom says

    Love this photo…especially with the twins leaning over and looking the same direction. You could zoom in on them for a good shot, too! You’re certainly a Lucky Lady…

  30. I love this picture… your hubby looks like men do when you start taking too many pics of them.. the twins are distracted.. looks like something caught their eyes and your daughters are ready for the pic and I love your sons hat! darling.. what a fun tuesday carnival:) love it!

  31. Gotta love those hubbys! I have never thought of anyone as a sap for saying how much they care for and adore their other half. So I won’t start now. Cute post!

  32. I love this picture! And I enjoyed your tribute to the man of your dreams!

  33. hippos toes says

    Nothing wrong with sappy :). Sounds like a great guy!

    Be sure to see my Wordful Wednesday – our visit to the National Building Museum 🙂

  34. Threeundertwo says

    I’m all for sappy. What a great guy!

    He’s at Disneyland with you and the kids. ‘Nuff said.

  35. Kelli @ Gohn Crazy says

    Nothing wrong with some sap here and there. 🙂

  36. So sweet!!!!

  37. Did Disney try to charge you a fee for posing in front of the tree? It wouldn’t surprise me. He’s actually not impatient, he’s probably doing the math on the cost of refreshments there…

  38. Adventure girl wanna be says

    It’s not sappy! It’s awesome! You go girl! You are so cute and have such a lovely family!

  39. Love the idea of tribute Tuesdays. Glad you have an awesome hubby:).., and for the record my husband calls me flash Harry whenever I have the camera in my hand..(which is a LOT)..

  40. MomItForward Jyl and Carissa says

    I know how much he LOVES being featured on your blog… so this should be going over well at your house!

    How are you and the fam and the sun and the holidays… Gotten crazy busy but I am having a blast… We keep telling ourselves once the site launches we’ll be able to breath.. but I’m thinking no way!

    Love the shot at Disneyland, you dog.


  41. what a great idea- Tribute Tuesdays. that a blog wouldn’t be all about ME? 🙂
    My husband doesn’t have a lot of patience for my photo shoots either… psheesh- just because he doesn’t have to worry about bad hair days…

  42. Mark and Kiss says

    ha ha ha! Too funny, love Jeff’s look. Very sweet picture and I love the LOVE you share about your family, not sappy at all, just genuine, positive (need more of that always) observations about the people around you! How fun to be close to Disneyland! I bet the kids love that!

  43. Jay @halftime lessons says

    Ok, Dammit. I’ll say it too…

    He’s alright lookin.


    You have such a beautiful Circus, Angie…such a lucky woman. And who the hell told you I was a redhead? oops…was it me?

    Actually, my wife gave me some hilights the other night that didnt come out too good…no prob, however, I’m shaving my head in March again for St. Baldricks.

    Anyway, enough about me…after all, it’s not about me.

    GREAT post, and I ALWAYS LOVE seeing your family. Can you persuade my wife to get on here and find something to rave about me?

    Oops…not about me…damn…

    Thanks SO much for jumping out on the Inaugural Tuesday’s Tribute!!


  44. What a neat feature.

  45. Casey's trio says

    You are a lucky girl!

  46. I was going to play with Jay and Deb but I was feeling too self centered today……maybe next week. 🙂

    I love that you got all sappy without getting too sappy. He is one handsome dude!

  47. ~~gail~~mooselovingmamabear says

    What a great picture and you’re not a sap…LOL There’s nothing better to love and to be loved… 🙂

  48. Grace is looking so grown up and I think she got her mother’s looks. Lucky her:) Add me on as a sap then I think I have the most perfect guy. But hey there are atleast 2 of them out there.

  49. blueviolet says

    That is absolutely sweet. He’s a lucky guy to have someone love him so much. Your whole family is beautiful and look at your daughter’s gorgeous smile. 🙂

  50. Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit says

    Sweet tribute! Love the pic…what a beautiful family!

  51. Great tribute! Not so sappy either. Love, Love, Love the pic!

  52. Are You Serious! says

    ♥ Great Tribute! That tree is huge!

  53. I love love…
    and happy marriages…
    and cute couples…

    So brag away!! I will never think you are a sap 🙂

  54. mommytoalot says

    awww that is soooo sweet.
    Don’t you just love that big Christmas tree…?
    We went two years ago during the holidays.
    great idea for a post

  55. That’s so cute that you said all that nice stuff about your husband.
    Did he read it?

  56. Eudea-Mamia says

    I wish husbands knew that every time we look at a coerced shot we think “now why did he have to ruin this shot by being such an @ss?”

    At least that’s what I think – but I’m sure I get “the look” for a very good reason.

    You? I can’t imagine you doing anything to justify the look.

  57. I know he is a great guy 🙂 I am amazed at that picture and how cold it was at Disneyland? I have never been there with any kind of cold, ever.

  58. The Thompson's says

    Hey Angie, so glad I came across your blog. It is so awesome and your family so beautiful. I look forward to coming back and learning more.

    Feel free to stop by and check us out as well.

  59. Wifey Dessert says

    awwwwwww so sweet!!!!

  60. Mine is the same…Dirty looks, and eye rolls and no patience for me and my many cameras! :o)

  61. Your family is so adorable! Great way to begin a tribute. 🙂

  62. sweet. He does seem like a really great guy. It was good to see you. You probably heard about Brooke. I’m sure she’ll need you when she finally makes it home. Twins come with a lot of drama…

  63. WheresMyAngels says

    What a cute picture. He does have the “hurry up” look on his face though, doesn’t he.

  64. Krazy Armstrong K's! says

    awww man, Im so sad I missed Disneyland this holiday! 🙁 glad you had a good time!

  65. love the pictures of your sweet family!
    happy new year.

  66. Well done on not sounding sappy LOL.

    Cute photo. So glad he let you take it.

  67. christa jean says

    I’m just jealous you were in Disneyland!

  68. Nice one Angie…what a great hubby you have….I get dirty looks as well, usually revolving around a camera in the face.
