New Year and Anniversary

Just for the record, we went to the Hixon family New Year bash. It was epic, as usual. There were a lot of people there. Our kids both took long afternoon naps and stayed up til about 1:00am.
Stephen and Rachel are still my heroes for hosting this crazy shindig. If you want to hear more about the party, you can read all about it at Rachel's blog.

Also, Dan and I just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. NINTH!!! Seriously, that is a lot of years. We are almost to a major milestone here.

On our actual anniversary I tossed Dan a blu ray of Sherlock Holmes that I bought at Costco and said "Happy Anniversary!" I bought myself some chocolates. We sat in bed after putting our kids to sleep and took turns sharing memories of the last nine years. The next night we tried to go to the Olive Garden because we had a gift certificate there, but there was a wait. On Tuesday. Yeah, the employees didn't know why either. So we went next door to a Mexican place that wasn't bad, but we probably won't visit again.


In other news, we didn't get around to sending Christmas cards this year. Maybe because this shot is the best we could do.
