1 MAN + 1 WOMAN = MARRIAGE = GOD'S ETERNAL PLAN



I know these pictures are from this summer when we were in Missouri, but I had to post them. I hope everyone who reads my blog knows how much in love I am with my family. My HUSBAND is amazing, and I love our MARRIAGE. We are a MAN and a WOMAN who love each other. Through our MARRIAGE we have been blessed to bring into this world our 5 beautiful children. We know we have our Heavenly Father's blessing because this is why we are all here. FAMILIES are central to God's plan. A HUSBAND and WIFE have the responsibility, the blessing, and the physical capabilities to bring children into this world. As MAN and WOMAN we were created by God, and we are made in His image. I am thankful for the knowledge I have of ETERNAL FAMILIES. And I LOVE my FAMILY so much.

Yes On Prop 8! Keep Families Safe!

Please visit www.preservingmarriage.org and read what Proposition 8 is and share it with others. It basically defines marriage as between man and woman, this will be voted on in California this November. It does not take any civil rights away from those of opposing beliefs. We can love all people and still not have to support all things they do or believe. We need to stick up for what we believe is right in the right way. Please support Prop 8 by understanding what it is and helping others do the same.

YES ON 8! YES ON 8! YES ON 8!

Dawson is a hoot! And Chandler is a man?

We had just finished family prayer the other night, and Dawson says, "Group hug everyone,... Except for Dad. You can't squeeze his tummy because he just got his "gobblers" out." We were all laughing, and Eric's stomach hurt from laughing too hard. All the talk about gall bladders, and gall stones,... Dawson is so funny.

So Chandler discovered he has 3 armpit hairs. It's true... and I tell you because he is so proud, he tells everyone. The other day he says, "well I'm the "man" of the house right now." And I reminded him that dad was upstairs. Then he says "well I'm the man downstairs." Then I said, "Chandler your not even a man." Then he lifts up his right arm and points at his armpit! Not saying a word, just reminding me that he has armpit hair, and that makes him a man. I laughed so hard.

10 Years and loving it!


I love Eric so much!
We spent our anniversary on the Sac River in Missouri. A bunch of family was there, and we just had such a fun and relaxing day. We each took turns, on the canoe, down the river and that was quite the adventure. I'll post more pictures of our trip later, but for now... I can't wait to see where the next 10 years take us!
