9 YEARS OF MARITAL BLISS! Cheese ball warning

dana;">Well Stuie-poo and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary today. I can't believe it has been 9 years since we went to the temple and were married. I can honestly say that was the happiest day I have ever had, not to mention one that has impacted my life more than anything else I have ever done or will ever do. Looking back Stu and I both say we were so young and clueless and totally cheesy. It is almost embaressing to remember how completely obsessed with each other we were. My poor friends and family knew all too well how into Stu I was.(I wouldn't shut up about it) And believe it or not Stu was pretty cheesy too. Now I feel like we aren't so cheesy but we have a much deeper love that is so fulfilling. I love that we have had our little journey of life together that has consisted of BYU, having Jane, having Catherine, dental school, having Luke, Pediatric residentcy, having Mack and now back in Utah working. I know 9 years isn't THAT long but it feels good to be close to the 10 year mark. I am so deeply, deeply happy and I feel so lucky to be married to Stu.
This is basically what every day of our lives is like. Just at the beach, kissing and blissfully in love. NOT! :) It's actually this was ONE weekend when we left our kids with my sister and went to Carmel with Stu's family. I am pregnant with Mack in these two top pictures. I had to do a kissing one, it's our anniversary!
I like this picture because we really do have a lot of fun together. If you are around us long you will know we tease each other a lot and quote Seinfeld WAY too much. Thanks to Tivo it is our nightly ritual to sit on the couch and watch a couple of Seinfelds. We are even picky about which one we watch now because we know them all so well!
This was taken right before I had Mack and I wanted to show it because it reminds me of what a journey having a baby is. Stu takes such good care of me when I have a baby. I am so thankful that we have been able to have our 4 children. This was at Loma Linda-it makes me miss it! Happy memories I will never forget.
-family: verdana;">This was in Jerusalem at the BYU center. I was about 4mo pregnant with Mack. We had such a great time and it was our first big trip together. For sure we made memories there that we will never forget! I love you Stu, happy anniversary! I am so excited to live the rest of my life next to you.

random pictures

These pictures are a little random but i wanted to post them anyway! This is Stu and the kids at a party.
I love this one of Jane and Catherine! They are really good buds.
I love this one on the grass at Loma Linda. Luke is holding Mack with the help of Bobo (stu's dad). We love Bobo!
This picture cracks me up! Mack is so cute with the backwards hat. Jane is just doing what she always does-love Mack. And Catherine is her own little actress self doing the scared scene from some poorly made horror movie. She is always so much fun!
All is going well here in Utah. Stu is loving his job and I am loving where we live soooo much. We are even considering buying in this area. Well, gotta go to bed. My next post wont be so random:)
