THE STORY OF OUR MARRIAGE, AS TOLD BY OUR CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

  1. Noel was born in 1981.
  2. I was born in 1982.
  3. We got married in 2006.
  4. We went to San Francisco on our honeymoon.
  5. I worked in a bookstore for years. Sometimes we cut up paperbacks, and turned them into ornaments.
  6. He got a new job, and had to leave for 3 weeks of work training. So I flew out for a weekend to join him.
  7. We went to New York on our "babymoon".
  8. Except it took a tiny bit longer to get pregnant than we'd thought. So we took another babymoon to Seattle.
  9. Eleanor arrived in 2010.
  10. We went to Disneyland in 2012.
  11. Juliet arrived in 2013. (That's the photo that came with the ornament. Maybe by Christmas 2017 I'll actually get around to printing a picture of her.)
  12. In preschool & kinder, Eleanor made a bunch of handmade ornaments. How are we old enough to have a kid this big??
