Happy 45th Anniversary

to Grandma and Grandpa I! (My parents, for those of you new to the blog.) It's their 'Sapphire' Anniversary... so I hope Grandpa hooked Grandma up with some pretty blue bling!

It seemed like such a wonderful day to get married that Dan and I decided to follow their lead and get married on the same date, 12 years ago today.

Dan is playing organ/piano at the 8am Mass and I'm cantoring at 10am and noon so we'll be getting our Graces on this anniversary. We'll spend the rest of the day poolside with the Heroes, trying to beat the 107F desert heat. A few frosty libations, pizza delivered to our lounge chairs - I can't think of a better way to spend our 'Silk' anniversary.

(OK, who am I kidding. I'd rather be here, where we spent our 5th anniversary, but Bittyman starts Kindergarten on Monday and we can't miss that... unless someone wants to make a ginormous PayPal gift donation. Then we're homeschooling in Mexico for his first week!)

Oh and boys, going to bed at a decent hour would be the best gift you could give Mommy and Daddy - hint, hint. I know you can read this, Bittyman. I've seen you find your favorite shows on the Tivo list and navigate the Firefox bookmarks. So in the words of your Little Critter book, JUST GO TO BED!

We were given such a wonderful gift this morning. After the homily at the 10am Mass I was cantoring, our dear friend and celebrant, Fr. Phil, called Dan and the boys up to the altar and gave us a nuptial blessing for our anniversary. We were completely taken by surprise and very honored. (Although having to sing the rest of the Mass was tough! I've become one of those Moms who cries at everything.) So many thanks again to 'Goofy Fr. Phil' (as Bittyman affectionately calls him) and to everyone who was present!

Gosh, I didn't know it was the sapphire year. I got diamonds, instead. That'll work.
Happy Anniversary to us all.
Love, Grandmai

Happy Anniversary! Love the white dinner jackets -- that's what my dad and his party wore when he and my mom got married.

And props to your gma for being hip to the blogosphere!
