Another Kilian Funny:

Yesterday morning he told me that he is unusual because he can change a sneeze into a cough. He also noted that he has to make that decision really fast sometimes.

10 Years

October 3rd, 1998
Ready to leave the wedding reception

Last night we celebrated our 10th anniversary by taking the kids to a "Kid's Night Out" at a church, and eating at O'Hana's, a Japanese steakhouse. (YUM). It was wonderful. AND tonight my parents are keeping the kids while we go see Fireproof, which I've heard great things about.

Every year on or soon after our anniversary, we have someone take our picture together. Brad finds it a little annoying, but he's a good sport. Take a look!

I don't know what gave me the idea to start doing that, but I'm so glad we did! OK - so that was the summary in pictures, here is a summary in numbers:

10 years
5 cities
4 churches
2 apartments
5 houses
3 cars/1 SUV/1 minivan (all used)
2 desktops/2 laptops
2 knee surgeries
1 broken foot
2 dogs
2 fish
3 kids
8 weeks pregnant with #4 (that's right!)
Happy Anniversary, Brad. I love you!!
