Six Years and Four Years...

Six years ago yesterday CJ and I were sealed. Wow. I thought five was a big number, but six feels bigger... wonder what ten will feel like. (I hope it feels like a big fat diamond.... kidding!) To celebrate CJ got me a new cellphone, an LG Voyager {which I am completely in love with, everyone knows I'm a big cell phone addict though.} , and took the kids and I to Texas Roadhouse for an early dinner, after which we dropped the kids off with our friends Cole and Maria (he planned this out with them without me knowing) , and he took me to see Mamma Mia!!!! Ooooohhhhhh mygosh. I was SO. EXCITED. I've been dying to see it since the previews came out, but I thought I'd have to wait for my mum to come down to go with me. Everyone who knows CJ knows what a "mans man" he is. He likes sports, fishing, sleeping, and scary disgusting movies. Does NOT do chick flicks at all, it takes a lot for me to convince him he might like to see a chick flick, and it usually means renting it, rarely in the theatres. But he even admitted that he liked the movie. I personally looooooooooooooved it. Loved loved loved it, I was smiling and laughing through most of it. Ahhh, so good. Definitely going on my "must buy" list. The singing rocked, even though Pierce Brosnan singing is really wierd to see, James Bond doesn't seem like a singing man, know what I mean? CJ and I totally snorted with laughter when he'd sing, we're childish like that. The past six years have been the best ups and downs of my life, and I can't wait to see what the rest of our life brings us.
And tomorrow is M's fourth birthday. Just under four years ago I woke up with sharp pains, thinking it was just from sleeping funny, until I realized that they were coming every 5 minutes. And so it all began... this girl drives me crazy, makes me laugh hysterically, burst into tears, want to squish her with love, and she's only four. Can't wait for the teen years. End sarcasm. I adore her, worship the ground that she leaps across, and cannot imagine a life without her in it, bumps and roadblocks included. She has come such a far way in the last year alone, her speech has improved amazingly, and she's becoming so much more social, yet still holds back to evaluate every new situation. Truly she is a unique creature, full of love one minute and hysterical the next. 5 minutes later she's spitting nails about some mishap of justice done to her by P, and then 3 minutes later they're running in circles in the living room, laughing hysterically when one of them falls and the other trips over them. A comedy of errors, that's our house.

Happy Anniversary. I can't believe it has been 6 years. We had not seen each other since college, and I remember showing up at the hotel to get ready to be one of your bridesmaids. It was a great day, and I am grateful that we have seen a lot of each other since then(well, not since you had to up and move to Arizona!!!) And I would like to mention that you came to Utah and did not stop to see us, or even call.
I miss you tons too!!!!
Happy Birthday to Mercy too!!! Zack is getting very excited for his birthday(2 weeks after Mercy)

Congrats on your anniversary. I remember going to your wedding. You are such an amazing blogger. How was Texas Roadhouse? It's one of my favorite restaurants. Now I want to see Mamma Mia.

Happy anniversary, and Happy birthday to Mercy. I agree with you. Time flies by way too fast. You gotta take advantage of when your kids are little. And tell her congrats for us with her speech improving. That is so neat.

I loved Mama Mia too. I totally grew up on the music as my mother is a huge ABBA fan. It's definitely going to be a purchase in the future. Happy anniversary and happy b-day to your little one. She is getting so big!
