12 Years of Wedded Bliss

Today marks our 12 year anniversary. We kept things simple and low key this year. Just dinner and a movie (Angels & Demons) and a trip to Wal*Mart. (Because every good date must end with a trip to Wal*Mart.) Alyssa babysat for us and even made Ramen Noodles all by herself for dinner for the kids. Having a big kid is GREAT! (Although I just went and watched my slide show from last year and teared up at seeing Alyssa little.) Man time goes fast!

The weather here has been something else. Crazy storms every night. And serious storms with hail and lightening and swirly clouds. I told Jarom today, "I'm sure glad my wedding isn't really this weekend because I'd be TICKED with this weather!" (And I would have too. Thank goodness we enjoyed a beautiful day for our own wedding.)

Happy Anniversary to myself and my dear Jarom. And now, I'm off to enjoy a slice of cheesecake with my very best friend. I love you Jarom!

Sounds like a great night out! Love the ending with Wal*Mart. We often do that too :-)

and that Alyssa can babysit! Oh my goodness. She is growing up so fast!

So glad you're happy....and that you have a friend to share cheesecake with! Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to you two!

We went to a wedding yesterday that was really beautiful but it was a stormy, thunder and lightning, rainy day and it was held outside and all got rained on. Everyone made the most of it anyway. You never can tell this time of year!

Enjoy your weekend and Happy 12th!

Happy Anniversary!! Welcome to the "big kid" baby-sitter club. It's wonderful!!

Elena's Mom said...

Yeah, you used to be my big kid babysitter. And now look at 'cha. You have your own big kid babysitter. And looking at your baby pictures does the exact same thing to me.

Happy Anniversary!

Happy anniversary! 12 Years is so super fun! Yes every good date must end with a trip to Wal Mart that is where Max and I go to get away! Sad isn't it:)

CONGRATS ON 12 YEARS!! Wow! We're almost there too! On the 20th. I'm jealous that you have a kid old enough and responsible enough to leave with your little ones. I still think I'm years away from that one!

Hey, are you guys going to the 15 year class reunion?
