Highlights of 8 Years Together

That's impossible... there is too much to list! So, I'll just note a few things I remember with great fondness from the past 8 years.

The infamous first kiss on our wedding day.
My first glimpse of our first little house in Maryland which sat smack dab in the middle of a horse farm.
Watching B-Bop "chase the foxes" in the fields.
Kris became George.
Our small group of young marrieds at the Baptist church in Maryland.
1 week vacation up the Oregon coast, just the two of us.
Going to Brazil together.
Living life in Austin, together.
Our Austin small group and the marvelous friends who have become family to us.
Endless hours of conversation while sipping hot tea, together. (Do you think we'll ever run out of things to talk about? We'll probably run out of tea first.)
Loving Madison and Valiant, together.
Learning to play Battlefield 1942 (a computer game), together.
Hiking Havasu together.
Riding Wilbur and Fancy, together.
Watching George defend his doctoral dissertation.

I asked George yesterday what his perfect day would look like. His answer: "It would be any normal day, when I get to wake up next to you."

Happy Anniversary George!

Battlefield made the list! Wow, Kris sure did find a "keeper"... :)

Congratulations on 8 years and cheers to 8 more.

Happy Anniversary! I remember when you got married- I thought you were "so grown up"... Now I can't wait until I've been married for eight years. Wait- that would make our daughter almost six? CRAZY! You need to join the ranks of parenthood guys! It's AWESOME. It's like-hmmm- raising a MINI ME! It's like watching little usses grow up together! It would have been great to see you guys, maybe next time. Maybe we'll get your way...:)
