First annual family anniversary

Peanut: Mom why do you and dad get an anniversary {actually two} and I don't?
Mom: Well, are you married?
P: No, Dad says I can't get married until I am 30.
M: Well, I think he said 35 but . . .
P: Why isn't there a "family anniversary" or a family day?
M: There is every Wednesday {family night - Monday's don't work for us}
P: Not family night mom - an anniversary - like a celebration dinner!
M: ? ? ? ?
{I didn't have a good answer as to why there is NOT a "family anniversary"

So we had one! {last night}



Menu: {it is "messed up" as we all helped pick the menu}
  • Red curry chicken with bell peppers and brown rice
  • Mac-n-cheese
  • Cobb salad
  • Corn and cheese custard {from this blog: http://cuisinenie.blogspot.com/ } HIGHLY recommend!
  • Pizza cookie
  • Lemon poppy seed bundt cake

Blowing out the family candles.


Why didn't she think of this earlier?!
I love this NEW tradition.
