Jason and I celebrated our 8th anniversary yesterday (the 20th). Jason had a beautiful bouquet of sugar plum lilies sent to me, and we went to the melting pot for dinner. (Thanks mom for babysitting!) We had a cheese fondue that was a blend of butterkase, fontina, and bleu cheeese, served with apples, vegetables, and bread cubes. Then we had salads, and for dessert we had chocolate turtle fondue - a chocolate, caramel, and pecan fondue with marshmallows, bananas, strawberries, rice crispy treats, pound cake, and cheesecake for dipping. It was all so delicious! I can't believe we've been married 8 years! I always thought that couples who were married for this long were old, but I still feel like we're just starting our lives - probably because our kids are so young. Imagine - we could have a 7 year old if we hadn't waited for Jason to finish school! Yikes! I don't feel old enough to have a 7 year old, though! My birthday is in 6 days, and I'll be 29... sigh... the last year of youth! :) Poor Jason is already 30 - over the hill!! Personally, I still feel 20 - it's weird to think of myself as a grown up woman. Do we ever get to the point where we feel completely mature and confident? Or do we always feel like kids inside? I guess this is why we always have a need for our Heavenly Father! Especially at this time of year, I feel so grateful for my Father in Heaven, and for Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made for us. I hope this Christmas will be a wonderful one for all of you, my family and friends. Love, Sarah.
