A Day FULL of 'Specialness!'

The most special thing about this day is that - as of 3:00 this afternoon - Louis Dean and I have been married 8 years!

Life with Louis Dean has certainly been an adventure!

This is the moment I said, "I do!"
I am so happy I did!

I was 55 years old!

While TODAY is our anniversary - we're not really celebrating until this weekend. We have reservations for a play in a historic theater in Abilene complete with an overnight stay! A TWO night stay!
I married a romantic man! Who KNEW 'Romance' was alive and well for senior citizens!!
I am here to tell you age makes no difference!

Today was special in other ways......

My mother and Deanie came over to see Amber's new house!
She calls it her 'Forever Home!' 
I love that!

I promised Amber I won't post pictures of her beautiful home until SHE has a chance to do it!
(She DOES have her hands full with FOUR one year olds!)

THIS is a snapshot of Amber and Deanie taken from her back yard!
It's like a CITY in the front yard - and COUNTRY in the back!
(Using Deanie's description!)

I just LOVE this spot in the new house!!!
I won't say any more than THAT!

I love THIS spot, too!!
Actually, I love the WHOLE house!!!
It is a 'Linda Friendly' home!
That means I can reach the bottom two shelves in ALL the cabinets AND the towel racks in the bathrooms!
There are LOTS of rooms as well as nooks and crannies where you can get off by yourself and 'hide!'

We left Amber and her lovely new home to pick Summer up at her office and headed to El Fenix for lunch!

What a fun time we had!
As my sister, Nita,  mentioned when she saw this pic on Facebook -
 Not one Margarita on that table, & you're all smiling??? What's wrong ? (:

Mother had a good time! We ALL did!

After all the FUN was over and Summer was back in her office and Deanie and Mother had headed home -
I did some routine bill paying and was just getting ready to go over to see the quads when what to my surprise! I got a phone call from Amber that she was on MY street! Babies in tow!

YES! The quads came to see Grandma!!!

AND Granddad!!!

Welcome to Grandma's!

It was a great day FULL of  'specialness!'

Happy anniversary! What lovely pictures of your wedding.

Look at that Harrison walking around. He's doing really well and looks like he loves being mobile.

I'm glad you had such a nice day.

Happy Anniversary on "the day"! How happy you both looked. You still do so guess that the adventure has been a great one! John and I will celebrate five years in another week or so. Amazing where the time goes.

Oh that country yard is going to provide so much country fun! I'm so happy for Amber and family!

Yay for a visit from the quads! They look perfectly at home at Grandma's place!

Happy Anniversary to the beautiful couple!!! Y'all are about the sweetest couple I've ever met (cyber speaking of course). I feel like I know y'all personally though. So glad that y'all found each other in your later years so you won't grow old alone. I think marriage is a blessing when it's good. Your wedding picture is so pretty. Amber is just gorgeous in it too! Have a wonderful time this weekend together.
