12 years later: Not a wild honeymoon stallion, but not bad either

We had a Napoleon Dynamite date for our 12th anniversary on Saturday. Takeout tamale's from Pedro's Place, tots toasted in the oven, tetherball at the playground, and a cake building contest.

All this with the kids, because I just haven't seen them enough lately. They loved it. I loved it. Just the fact that Glenn put the thought into it to plan it all out in advance ... that's what I love the most. I don't need fancy. I just need time, and thought.

After we put them to bed, I got my "card."

Ain't no sexy better than funny sexy.

My husband promises he intended this to look more like a Napoleon drawing than the real me. That was effective. Anyway, I laughed my guts out.

Here's to another twelve happy years!

Too dang funny! I'm glad you had such a fabulous time. I keep forgetting that you're older than us!!

Ana said...

Hey we are not that much older. It's just that I was a child bride. So pbbbbbbbttttt ....

SalGal said...

What, were you twelve? Was this originally a polygamous marriage with that one family from our student ward? ;-P

Ana said...

HAH!

No, I was 19. That makes me 31 now, dear. One WHOLE YEAR older than you are.

SalGal said...

Sigh...

A year is still a year, my friend. Chronologically, you're one year closer to death than me!

Ok, that wasn't as funny as I thought it would be.

But you will be collecting your Social Security checks of $0.39/month a whole year sooner than I will!

Oh wait, that wasn't funny either.

Ok, umm... maybe I shouldn't be doing this at 12:29 a.m. Stinking space shuttle...

Well if you want to talk about who is old let's talk about Glenny. He is turning 34 on the 21st!!! He's going to be officially older than Jesus!

Glenny has skills...You know, like nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills, celebration skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.

Lucky! Sweet!

SalGal said...

Holy crap, 34?!?! He can qualify for Social Security any day now!! I hope he has a good retirement plan, his checks might only be 25 cents.

How could you marry such a geezer? What could you have in common, you're almost a generation apart! ;-)

Ana said...

Hey when I met him he was a mysterious older man. He was 18! A legal adult! Oh my heck!

Thanks everyone for appreciating my funny DH's date idea!
