It snowed the day before our wedding and it snowed the day after, but we really lucked out on the actual wedding day. Our reception that night was up the mountain at Snowbird, so we were lucky the roads were clear and it wasn't TOO cold... though I'm not sure what I was thinking having short sleeves in the middle of December :)
My parents are watching Eli for us in a few weeks so we can have a nice dinner in the city, so we'll celebrate officially then. It's funny how before Eli arrived, we usually planned some sort of quick getaway, whether it was staying overnight in Chicago or San Francisco (depending on which family we were spending the holidays with that year). Tonight we're just as happy to spend the evening at home, with Eli tucked into bed and the snow falling outside (Ben's out shoveling as I'm typing this).
It's hard to believe we have been married for eight years - I feel lucky to have such a sweet husband and darling little boy!
Yesterday he was moody, grumpy, sad, throwing fits, etc. because he didn't feel well. I took lots of deep breaths to get through the day. :) Today the antibiotic finally worked its magic and we had fun playing all over the house. These pictures were taken in the basement. (It's currently painted a really awful beige color - let me know if you have any color suggestions. I'm hoping we'll paint it in the near future...)
Later when we went upstairs, he looked in the third bedroom that currently has a ton of baby clothes spread out and organized all over the floor... he ran in, threw his arms up and said, "WHOA!" I'm not going to show a picture of what that room looks like right now, but his reaction is a good indication...
Last night I went grocery shopping at 10:30 p.m. because I knew the snow was coming and didn't want to drag Eli out in the cold. After I got home and finished unloading the groceries into the house, I could barely feel my nose and lips - it was that cold. Hopefully tomorrow will be a little warmer so we can go out and enjoy the snow.
Happy anniversary sweetheart!
