52 Anniversary

Today was our 52 anniversary.  I can still hear my mother tell me that I didn't have a choice when I was born {Dec. 27), but I didn't need to get married at Christmas time, also.  But, I do love celebrating our anniversary at Christmas time.
We had a full relaxing day.  We started out the day by going to Sunday School and church.  It was a good service.  Lots of music and a good message.




After church we went to our favorite restaurant in the area.  We went to Hickory Falls.
We remember the first time we went to this restaurant.  It was the weekend we moved into our house in June of '07.. We had spent two days unloading our things from the PODS into the house and garage. Larry and friends came over and helped also.  Our friends Dick and Anne were here on their way home from Michigan to Arkansas.  We decided to go out and eat that Saturday night.  We were so tired and sore that we didn't want to get out of the car any more times than we had to. We pulled into two restaurants and the parking lots were full, so we pulled into Hickory Falls.  We didn't know if it would be any good, but we didn't care.
It was delicious.  We usually get the pork loin, broccoli, mashed potatoes, and salad.  It's always so good and it was today.


After we ate, we did something we have never done before.  We went to TWO movies.  We went to see Saving Mr. Banks.  It is the background of Walt Disney's filming of Mary Poppins.  We both enjoyed it.

After that we went to the movie, The Book Thief.  It was very good. It takes place in Germany during the war.

It was a fun relaxing day to share with my best friend.
