3

3 years have come and gone so fast!

Robert and I met 3 years ago at church.  We both went to a dance that we didn't want to be at and ended up dancing together.  6 days later, we were sitting on his living room floor trying to decide what to do for Valentines day, when he asked me a couple of quiestions about what type of mother I want to be and what I want out of life... When it seemed my answers satasfied him, he asked me to marry him.  Me, being completly crazy, said yes.  We were married a month later in the St. Louis temple on St. Patty's day. 
We have had 2 children, lived in 8 different places in 2 states, had 8 different jobs, we have shared our home with about 20 different animal, started school 3 different times, sold all of our possesions and started over 3 times, had 6 different cars (one being our moped), and have shared so many memories together in the past 3 years.  It has been a crazy road, but I wouldn't have changed it for anything.
For our anniversary ( a week early) we went to St. Louis for 2 days.  We spent the day at the zoo the first day, looking at animals, enjoying the 70 degree weather and getting mugged by a goat.  We didn't realize that that tricky fellow had taken our only means of money until around 9 oclock that night when we were searching our car and luggage franticly for our debit card.  Needless to say, we finally called the zoo and a very nice park ranger retrieved the card from the goat.  At least he decided not to eat it.
After retrieving our card, we went to the Moolah theatres to watch Alice in Wonderland.  If you haven't been to this theatre, you really should experience it, it was awesome. We spent the night in a cottage at the Napoleon B&B in the Lafayette historical area.  The next morning we went to the Arch and finished the afternoon off at the Cheescake factory.  Awesome. 

Thank you Robert/Charlie/Charles Magilicutty for the past 3 years, it's been a blast.

That goat hasn't seen the last of me. It was an excellent plan, props to the goat. I didn't know that goats have such extensive thought processes..."I'll steal the zoo map...He'll think that's what I'm after. Then, when I put up a fight over the map, He won't even think twice about how I've stolen his debit card as well...Mwah, ha, ha, ha,etc."

Dang Goat!

What a crrrrazy three years! Did you like Alice in Wonderland? We saw it, but I wasn't as dazzled as I'd hoped. So glad you two got married and moved to AZ for a bit. Can't wait until we meet again!
