This Day in History

December 29 is a double-special day in our house.  And this year, it's even more special...16 years ago, Jonathan David Fisher made his appearance into this world--and it's never been quite the same since!  Below is one of the earliest photos we have of Jonathan, as he didn't enter our family until he was six, going on seven.  We are thankful for his birth mother and her choice to give him life 16 years ago.

Happy 16th Birthday, Jonathan!  We love you!

December 29 is also special because 15 years ago on this date, I married my best friend.  It was an icy Friday evening, as I recall, and we had to start the ceremony late because my grandmother had a hard time getting to the church in the inclement weather.  It was a beautiful Christmas wedding, and 15 years and (almost!) five kids later, we still enjoy one another's company!

Happy Anniversary, Dave!  I love you!

We were young and in love!
