Aren't They Sweet!

Jon had to work Saturday, so Jon and the kids fixed a candle light dinner for two for Jon and me to enjoy Friday night. The kids ate separately, served us, and watched CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG. I was sent out of the house to spend some alone/errand time while they prepared for the dinner.

Jon went all out this year. He got me flowers*, the movie FIREPROOF, the book THE LOVE DARE, and a Fireproof t-shirt for me and one for himself. He also gave me my birthday present, a comparative study Bible, early. He even got a bottle of wine to try with dinner, but we haven't opened it, yet. You see, we don't normally drink alcohol and Jon forgot we that we don't have a corkscrew.

After dinner, the kids finished watching their movie while we started to watch FIREPROOF. When the kids' movie was finished, we put them to bed and then went back to our movie. Overall, it was a wonderful evening. Thanks Jon and kids!

*One of our cats, Lily, is being quite obstinate about getting up on our table and nibbling on the flower blossoms. I had to put her in her carrier for a while last night. I let her out later and when I got up this morning one of the blossoms she had been chewing on was completely gone. So which flowers does she nibble on? Roses? No. Daisies? No. Mums? No. She nibbles on the lilies! I think we named her well.

that was sweet of them :)

I think the convenience store here has really cheap corkscrews if you don't find one there.

Wow what a fab family. Have you considered changing the cats name? As if that would stop her. Sounds like a great night with great people.

P.S. So when is your birthday?

There are no plans to change her name. It was a great night. My birthday is March 11th.

Glad you were treated like the queen you are. ;o) Now I have to go look up Fireproof. Haven't been keeping up with movies in a long time. Don't know what that one is.

Love ya!

Thanks Damama.

Ugh! Jon picked up a cork screw that was marked down at Wal-mart last night. Wouldn't you know it, when he took it out of the bag at home, he realized the end of the screw was broken off.
