    Christmas Tree Anniversary Trip Report - DLR 12/21

    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.

    Enjoy!

    After our ride, we got to meet our friends from the 100 Acre Wood



    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


    Thanks for viewing. Merry Christmas!!

    So what ornament did you guys get???? Wondeful story , I think Disneyland is such a magical place for romance , My dh and I were on the way there when he proposed emmmm ...34 years ago, my dd had her first date with her dh when she was babysitting and they took the little girl she was watching to disneyland for the day , they got married at the DLH 3 years later, and their little boy like yours is going to be a DL geek, its in his blood ...he always wants to go to DL to ride his monorail and see his castle.... maybe they are the next Lasseter/Baxter team?????

    That is funny that you say that. As we were walking through the turnstyles on Friday, I said, "Christin - 7 years ago, would you have thought that 7 years later, you and I would be coming back here with our 14 month old son?" She said "No, I wouldn't have thought that."

    Back on that night, December 21, 2000 - my wife did like me at that time. I did too, but I was very 'gunshy' as I had just ended an engagement a year prior and I was setting myself up for the 'single life' - even bought a convertible to go along with my 'single guy lifestyle' - hee hee. But, you can see what happened! Love won!

    Adorable story, David! You remember dates more than anyone I know!!! If I asked Mark the date of our first date (how many times can I say DATE in this post?), I bet he can't tell you. But, I will....Nov 7, 1986 !

    Love this story!!!!!!

    We found this one of Sleeping Beauty Castle - but looks like a Gingerbread Cottage style-wise. It was a huge debate, actually.....so we held them up in front of Grant and let him choose - and he reached toward that one, so it's the one we got.
