The Ultra-Appreciatives

Remember, I said my mama's day was to be continued? Well, I was in for a wonderful surprise. I stepped onto the set, created by my wonderfully clever husband, and was treated to a song and dance by... The Ultra Appreciatives!!!
the set
L V YO M M!
song and dance Ultra-Appreciative man!
thanks mama!
I luv them too!
The Ultra-Appreciatives
flying through
dang. he's HOTT!
Here is the song, written by Ben, that was sung during the performance (to DMB's "Save Me"):

 Ultra-Appreciatives, how grateful we,
For what U do, and what U be...
Never heard of us, heroes kinda new,
Our super-power is our thanks for U...
With these here U's, we call 'em Uuumerangs,
So vital to-us, the name's just slang...
Symbolizes-how U save us, Papi, Brave, and True,
And-what, would-we-do, with-out "U"?...

U're there for us in, every way,
Brave drops her blankie, U save the day
U save us, Papi, Brave, and True,
What's an Ultra-Appreciative, without their "U"?...
U save us, save us,
A big thank-U, from us three
U save us, save us,
A big thank-U-from-us-three
We're so lost-when-U-are-gone
It's a conclusion forgone...

Caring for True from womb to now,
Potty training her, I'd have a cow...
False alarms and all, you're still content,
Even wiping up, all those accidents...

U save us, Papi, Brave, True,
And-what, would-we-do, without "U"?...
U save us, save us,
A big thank-U, from us three
U save us, save us,
A big thank-U-from-us-three
We're so lost-when-U-are-gone
It's a conclusion forgone...

I need U to free our clothes and house of dirt,
You wake up so early just to iron my shirts...
When I think of your love, I wonder wh-y-y-y-y-y
But Papi thanks my "double-U" for saving me

Ultra-Appreciatives, how grateful we,
For what U do, and what U be...
Never heard of us, heroes kinda new,
Our super-power is our thanks for U...
Equipped. With these here U's, we call 'em Uuumerangs,
So vital to-us, the name's just slang...
Symbolizes-how U save us, Papi, Brave, and True,
And-what, would-we-do, with-out "U"?...
Ultra-appreciative
flying hightwo are better than one!
no, it's the Ultra-Appreciatives!!!
it's a bird!
Now, Ben would not consider himself crafty, but really, he is just too modest. I mean, come on, he cut and sewed on U's to shirts, found some tights, used my scraps for the U's and the capes, painted masks, drew a whole set, and wrote a song. If that isn't crafty or artistic, well, gosh, then I don't know what is! My husband is superhero-ly hott! 

They were just insanely adorable that I had to take lots and lots of pictures. I mean, what husband will dress up in tights for his wife?!! Apparently, mine and I love him even more everyday!!! See more pictures here

I love my Ultra-Appreciatives! I am getting spoiled, how are they gonna top this next year?!! I don't know, but I can hardly wait! I love being a mama!!!

Not only is your husband truly talented and artistic, but the love and care and time that your family put into your special day is just too sweet! Your simple and strong faith is an incredible example. I cannot wait to be a mother someday...the blessings to come are just so exciting. *much love*...please continue to inspire.
