I think unique dates are cool, and being as this was the last matching date that we will ever live to see I wanted to do something fun.  But there was next to nothing in the way of ideas online, so I came up with a silly dinner that turned out to be pretty fun.  A 12 of 12 dinner.  Brandon was a great help as I made the cookies for our dessert. :)
 12/12/12/ 12:12 :)  So cool :)
 HAPPY 12/12/12
 Our dinner consisted of 12 chicken nuggets, 12 peanut butter celery sticks, 12 mini cornbread muffins, 12 jello shooters (non alcoholic of course) 12 lettuce roll ups, 12 homemade oreo cookies, 12 apple slices, 12 muffin cups filled with macaroni and cheese, 12 homemade mini quiches, 12 drinks (4 waters, 4 juice, 4 milk) 12 mini taco salads - yum!! and 12 little smokies.  This meal took a surprising amount of time and thought, because it was such a last minute idea, but I am very pleased with how it turned out, even if it is really weird. :
 I do wish I had thought in years past to do something for each repeating date 01/01/01 - 12/12/12, how cool would it have been to have a picture celebrating each day, oh well.
Cool story about this day.  Jared's grandpa Bowman was born on 12/12 1910, he lived to be 101 years old, if he had lived one more year I am sure he would have been the only person ever to have celebrated two birthday's on 12/12/12.  Maybe he did a little celebration of his own in heaven. :)

Next years cool date will be 11/12/13, I don't have any idea what I would do for that day, so if you have any thoughts - let me know. :)
