GIft Planning, Need Help!!!!

Alright, I need my bloggity friends help here. A while back when a friend of mine was moving to another park, I did a slide show with music of our kids as they have grown up together over the past 4 years. When Big Buckaroo saw it, he said, "awe, you should make one of our kids from birth until now." My first response (in my mind of course) was "yea, between laundry, homeschooling, cooking, gardening, the Farmer's Market, feeding my Dr.Pepper habit (yep, I am back on them) and all of my other gazillion things, I will get right on it".

Then, I started thinking....I know, scary. Big Buckaroo and I have been married 9 years in a couple of weeks, so what I should do is a slide show from our wedding, to the birth of babies, until now. Here is my problem, I need song ideas. Since, the last 6 years of my life has been consumed with Veggie Tales and Blue's Clue's music, I have not been up on the latest, greatest lovey-dovey hits.

So, I need recommendations!!!!!!! You guys know my life ~ how I love my husband with everything I am, that I adore our children, and I am a hopeless romantic. Give me some ideas people. If not, I am going to have to tell Big Buckaroo that he does not get a present this year because my bloggity friends did not have any song ideas. Oh yes, I will so blame it on you guys!

HELP a park wife out!

I am bad with song names, but here are a few off the top of my head.

"I hope you dance"
"butterfly kisses"
"forever and ever, amen"
"the cape" (Jerry Jeff Walker, Guy Clark)

Faith Hill and Martina McBride both have a lot of good, romantic songs. Check out their albums. The band Little Big Town has a really nice song called Bring It On Home which is also very nice - nice melody and words.

Hope that helps!

Love Will Keep Us Alive by the Eagles was my daughter's favorite.
We still play it on her annivarsaries.

I agree with flyingsquirrel... "How You Live" by Point of Grace would be amazing for that. "Your Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins, "Livin Our Love Song" by Jason Michael Carroll, "Where The Green Grass Grows" by Tim McGraw & "Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts are also good options.
