Lessons Learned, Our Anniversary and New Arrivals

Earl and I had our Unofficial 13th Anniversary yesterday. I say it's unofficial because Earl just kind of gradually moved in with me and we don't remember exactly when it was, except that I remember it was around April 15th.

So April 15th it is. We've NEVER celebrated our anniversary, I guess because we don't have an official date or neither one of us is really into big celebrations. Mallory was very excited about the whole thing though and so being such a sweetheart she went out and bought 3 cards. One for me to give to Earl, one for Earl to give to me and one for her and the boys to give to us. Mallory had our neighbor take her shopping and she picked out the cards and went she went to pay for them the total was $12.06. She had enough money and didn't want to say anything about the price so she went on and bought them. Poor baby! She had no idea how much cards cost. Mallory was so excited for us to exchange cards last night and the one she bought for us was really funny and of course she had to read it to us with different voices which made it even funnier. You have to know Mallory to really appreciate her sense of humor! Anyway, we had a quite, but very nice anniversary this year Thanks to one very special little girl.
