Our 9 year Anniversary

I have known Sam for over 10 years.  He is such a good example to me.  
He works hard, has a very even temper, is great with our kids, and is just an all around positive person. 
 I am PROUD to be his wife and I'm so glad he chose to be with me forever and for always.  

"Find arms that will hold you at your weakest times, eyes that will see your beauty at your ugliest times, and a heart that will love you at your worst."

Dear Sam, 
Thanks for loving me even when I whine more than I should.  
We've built a beautiful life together that I truly treasure.  
I love our home and our little family.  
Thanks for being such a wonderful husband and father.  
You amaze me.  
XO, Lisa

We started a new tradition this year... our Family Birthday Party.  Our family was "born" (created) 9 years ago in the Palmyra New York Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Our kids LOVE celebrating birthdays, so we decided to celebrate the "birth" of our family.  For dinner, we had steak and "smashed" (mashed) potatoes.  We made a round double layer fudge marble cake with chocolate frosting, stuck 9 candles in it, and sang, "Happy Birthday to OUR FAMILY."  All of us helped to blow out the candles.  The cake went fabulously with our homemade mint Oreo ice cream.  Then, we went downstairs to open up some family gifts.  Sam and I got matching blue camping chairs and we got a large Book of Mormon timeline/cartoon mural puzzle and some new church videos.  
It was a happy day.  
Hip Hip Hooray for our awesome family!
