Today, we are celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary!
So last night, we decided to pull out our wedding photos and our anniversary book (which we received as a wedding gift) to show the kids during family home evening.
(If at this point, you are beginning to think, "Geez, these people will make an FHE lesson out of anything," well, you'd be right. And so can you! It's your family time...do what you want!)
Anyway, the kids were thrilled.
They are of the age that they think Mommy looks beautiful in her wedding dress and in just about any dress for that matter...and that Daddy is actually a prince. I would love for that to always be the case.
We looked at pictures and talked about what it means to be married and sealed in the temple and what "anniversary" means. We also filled out "year 8" in our anniversary book which is like a baby book for your marriage. We each took turns saying something memorable about our year. I think the kids enjoyed adding to the book and watching our family grow from page to page/year to year.
This year, we'll be adding another member to our family, and we are all excited about that.
What else will the year hold...I wonder?
