My John Deere Boys

If you've known my husband for any length of time, then you know that he LOVES John Deere. It is more than just a hobby, it's an obsession. I knew when I started dating him that he liked it, growing up on a farm and all, but I had no idea how much.
One of our first fights was actually about John Deere. Caleb wanted to drive away from our wedding reception on a John Deere tractor. I was slightly opposed. The idea of driving away on the tractor wasn't really the issue. It was trying to find a tractor that I didn't feel I had time for in my short three months of planning. He let me have my way and as a thank you I surprised him with adding some John Deere apparel to the wedding. At our rehearsal dinner I gave everyone in the wedding party a John Deere hat (green for the guys, pink for girls,) and our ring bearer actually wore his when he walked down the aisle the next day! We had a John Deere wedding cake and my garter was John Deere. Caleb loved it.
The obsession was fed by Caleb's mom the day she found out we were having a little boy. Don't ask me where she found it, but she came home with John Deere onesie, overalls, socks, cell phone, keys, tractor, hat, and tool belt. I'm actually very thankful because they are some of Elijah's favorite toys. They keep him busy so I can get things done in the house. Thanks Mom!
Tonight, I pulled out Elijah's toys for him to play with as Caleb and I ate dinner and I couldn't help but stop and take some pictures...isn't he a cutie!! I love my John Deere boys.
