This past Saturday was a really nice day. It would have been better if I got to sleep in, but with a baby that refuses to sleep in himself, that was just not going to happen. I wasn't sure if I wanted Mark to open his gift at our date out, or at home...but I decided that I couldn't wait any longer. So after we ate breakfast we exchanged gifts. He knew that I spent
It was very sweet. It made me cry! :-D
Then it was his turn to open my gift:
I took his box of pictures from him mission, contacted his mom for any other materials I needed from his mission, and I went through all his mission stuff to find anything that I could to make it a great scrapbook. I even covered the binder all by myself with that Chinese fabric I bought at Joann's.
Mark and I had talked all week about what we might want to do for our anniversary this year to celebrate, but it wasn't until that day that we finally just made a decision and ran with it. Our friend Laura Hawley from our ward had us watching her daughter the day before, so she was happy to watch Canon while we went out to eat. We left as soon as we could to eat at Texas Roadhouse. It was a great meal, and the waiter was just dandy, but the wait to sit down took too long. We ended up missing the showtime for the movie we wanted by about a 1/2 hour. The next showing of anything that we might have been interested in wasn't for another 1 1/2 hours. Also, Mark was starting to feel a bit tired, and we had a Netflix movie waiting to be watched at home already, so we just decided to not spend any more money and just go home. Besides, cuddling on the couch is so much more comfortable than those seats at the theater...even on our awful couches. We had dinner and a movie, and didn't have to worry about the responsibility of putting the baby to bed. What a great night!
Thanks for a great night, honey, and for an amazing 6 years! I love you! Let's do it again next year! :-D
