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.

Congrats... such a fun time in life. So much is behind and accomplished together, and so very much ahead to look forward to.

How did I not know you guys are Seinfeld fans?!? It is a ritual of ours to watch Seinfeld episodes on the laptop in the hospital to make time pass while I am in labor. Seriously. My favorite: Elaine dancing.

What a cute tribute to your marriage and your love. It inspires me, and makes me so happy and excited for the future. I sometimes think, "Will we be bored 10 years from now? Will we still be in love?" Looking at this post proves that it happens. You two are so cute and I love your kids. What a family! Congratulations! PS: Let me babysit so you can go on a big hot date!! PLEASE!!

That is awesome! We have been married for 9 too. I remember how Stu crazy you were when he was on his mission. We would go out for FRO YO or something and it was like a giddy school girl! It was great.
