Celebrating with Rats

Today I have Chuck E Cheese anniversary party reservations for five. Well, No not really but it might as well be. It's our 12 year wedding anniversary, and Jason and I will be toting along all three kids for our celebration dinner. Not that we weren't given the opportunity to go out solo, or even considering the fact we haven't gone alone since February. (As temping as it sounds) We just know there is no way we can sit and enjoy food at our favorite restaurant, knowing they would give anything to go themselves. The Japanese fire tricks just wouldn't be the same without their little face lighting up.

Did I mention this is our 12 year anniversary! Seeing how we moved in with one another two weeks after we met,we've actually been living together 14 years. Yet,anniversary number wise, I guess those two years just don't count. I'm sure by now my mom has given up hope that I will be moving back in. Besides, I'm sure bringing back a husband and three kids, wasn't exactly what she was crying for. I knew that day and the day I got married he was Mr. right. Even the huge fight at my reception with my brothers over shaving cream, didn't change my mind. So, here we are 12 years (+2), three kids and a cat later, still giddy over one another. Who'd a thunk it?
All I know is I need to keep all of this on the back burner of my mind. That is until the day one of my girls shows up with a boy (that she had claimed was Only a friend, that I've barely met), and says she's in love and she moving out. FYI~ No matter what they say, Friends don't ask to leave a dozen roses on their bed while their at school!

  3. Happy Anniversary! This is funny because we actually did spend one of our anniversaries at Chucky Cheese- Oh wait... It was Valentines Day... That's right. Either way, it was our only way to get time alone without costing a fortune. We talked over pizza (I mean yelled over the noise- ya it was crowded) while the kids played.

  12. Happy Anniversary. We are just one year behind you almost to the day (23). can I just say, as long as you avoid the pizza Chunkie Cheese is great fun and for only twenty dollars you can win twenty-five tootsie rolls, two plastic bracelets and a tiny plastic skateboard. But we are ringers on the games so maybe other people don't win such great prizes ;)

  20. When are you coming back from Chucky Cheese?

    Unless Jason took you on a nice long vacation and you are off on a yacht somewhere and no longer have internet access. Is that it?
