Hello friends! We decided to 'hit' Disneyland yesterday for our 'Christmas Tree Anniversary'. On Thursday Night, December 21, 2000, I met my friend Christin for some 'last minute' Christmas shopping - we met at the Christmas Tree around 6:15pm that night.......and when I stood there waiting, I saw her in the distance.......and it was the strangest thing because it was at that moment that I knew I was going to marry her. It was the strangest thing because in the midst of the Christmas crowd, the only person I saw was her - everyone else was a blur. It was so strange...and from that moment on, I was thinking how I was going to propose - and we were just friends at the time. That night, we went to The China Closet and bought a Christmas Ornament.
Well, we went on our official first date 7 months later - were engaged 3 weeks after that and married 5 months after that.
To remember that December 21, 2000 - each year, we go and buy a new Ornament in remembrance of that special night - hence, our "Christmas Tree Anniversary". And for you now, is some pictures from our special day.

Tigger was quite frisky - kept rubbing my back and shoulders - ?????
An interesting photo taken of Grant and I on It's A Small World. Look more like the depths of Hades, if you ask me!
Ah - at last, and up close shot at the Christmas Tree
Grant, quite interested with the 'larger than he' ornaments
Thanks to the fellow who took this photo for us - even if it is a little off center
