03 January 2008

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary and that of my husband's 3 brothers too. My husband is from a large family and he is the eldest of the brothers. We were married 36 years ago on Jan 2nd. 5 years later, it so happened that the next brother got married on Jan 2nd--not planned like that believe me. Then 6 years later the next brother too got married on Jan 2nd--again not planned like that. So youngest brother decided that there was no way he was going to get married on any other day :) So till that point, we had all got married on Jan 2nd Sunday. I then looked up a long term calendar and found that only 11 years later would there be Jan2nd on a Sunday. Since youngest was really young (he was around 4 when we were married) that seemed ok. But after around 9 years, my mother-in-law felt he should be married. He was fairly adamant about the Jan 2nd date. So he did get married on Jan 2nd but it was a Saturday:) So there we were altogether yesterday, celebrating 36, 31, 25 and 15 years of married life respectively. We had a nice relaxed evening all of us with our 3 sisters-in-law and whoever's children were around.

Hillgrandmom-brats or bratwurst is like a sausage. Around here, it's popular as cook-out food. We use hot dog buns to eat it with and put any condiments on it you want-ketsup, mustard, onions, etc.

Sorry I missed your Anniversary. Happy late wishes !! Quite an important date and an easy way to remember the others dates.
My Mother and one of her sisters were married in a Double Wedding ceremony on Christmas Day in 1924 and one of my sisters and I also had a Double Wedding on Dec. 23rd. 1951. That`s the only double weddings, but, not 4 brother`s on the same month and date of the month. That is something.
So you are also in Facebook. So am I.
