Who would have thought that we would find ourselves with 7 children? We've been through 7 cars, 7 moves, 2 houses, 6 vacuums, 10 beaters, 2 toasters, 4 blenders, 4 computers, 4 vcrs, 15 layoffs--only one actually affected us, 3 dishwashers, 17 years of diapering and a million gold fish. We've attended over 500 soccer, basketball, flag football, lacrosse, baseball, and tee-ball games which our kids were a part of. We've attended over 50 school choir concerts and plays that our kids were in. We've taken trips to Arizona, Idaho, California, Nevada and Wyoming besides just in Utah. We've been to over 50 BYU Football games, over 25 BYU mens and womens basketball games and several random Volleyball and Soccer games at BYU. Over 40 plays and concerts at BYU, the Scera and Hale theaters. We've had only one broken leg, one broken finger, one broken ankle, one appendix removed and one ruptured disc surgically repaired. More cavities and crowns than I want to remember! Over 600 dates Tim and I have been on since we got married (this includes shopping together and movies alone after the kids are in bed!). A couple of overnighters to Park City, Salt Lake City, Heber, and the Homestead. It would be fun to say we are going somewhere to celebrate this important day but here we are eating yummy food with our kids. And you know it's alright because we have been so greatly blessed. It kind of overwhelms me the many blessings we have accrued over the years! The most being Tim is my best friend and I love him and we are still enjoying this adventure together. Here's to 20 more years! Thanks Tim!

Congratulations on this milestone. We did something on our 15th anniversary and something on our 26th for our 25th Anniversary because we couldn't get away on the 25th but the other years we just celebrated with dinners out or a night at a nearby hotel or something like that so don't feel too bad. Maybe you can pull something off for your 25th. It's not that far off. Hard to believe time goes by quickly. You certainly have a lot of wonderful blessing to show for it all.
