12 years

Yesterday was our twelfth anniversary. Doug was gone all day (twelve hours--keeping with the theme, I guess) and Kate and I stayed home and got on each other's nerves. We grabbed a neighbor to take pictures for us today, before church (stake conference).



My sunburn has toned down a bit. I'm still kind of blotchy.



Smoochies!

Barb and Kyle called and sang "Happy Anniversary to you" (cute). Doug's mom sent us this lovely card. She always makes cards for birthdays and holidays.



Here's to many more years!

Congratulations, and super cute baby belly! Sorry to hear that you and Kate got on each other's nerves but it made me feel like a better mom ;)

Oi! I knew sept 6th sounded familiar for some reason. Happy Anniversary! :D

Betsey just came in to the kitchen with a stunned expression on her face and exclaimed, "Do you know what Sept. 6th was?"

My first thought was"the day after Sept. 5th?" And then I said, "Helena's anniversary. OH NO!" Usually we're really good about remembering family anniversaries and birthdays, but this time I completely spaced it. I am so sorry. One of dad's cousin's daughters got married that day, and I think I was concentrating on "I really do need to get their card in the mail…"

I've got all those dates on the computer, but unless they get transferred to the calendar it doesn't stay in my head.

We could call and sing "Happy two days after your anniversary to you…"

Loved the pictures.

Love, Mom

Happy Anniversary! Twelve years is a long time. I've always thought you two were an extremely cute couple.
