An Anniversary Program
This past Sunday was our 9th anniversary. Where does the time go? We don't usually do much to celebrate our anniversary and this year was no exception. I spent all day Saturday working the book sale at school and we opted out of dinner that night for lack of a decent babysitter who can handle 3 kids and an infant (who doesn't care for a bottle). Garth did surprise me with these awesome pink skullcandy headphones for my ipod. Then Sunday was "the program." Anyone who has been in primary knows exactly what I'm talking about. It is what we work towards all year long. We are constantly teaching themes and songs that will be included in "the program." This year's theme was My Eternal Family. I was smart enough to delegate the responsibility of the program to my counselor Shelli (who is much less flaky than me) and she did a fabulous job. It was written well and flowed so smoothly and there were touching personal stories from the kids. I was sitting in the pew with my family and was grinning from ear to ear. It is so cute to see the kids and their different personalities and wonderful to feel their pure faith and spirit as they say things like "My family can be together FOR-EV-ER" (Sydney's part). I am so glad that Garth and I got married in the temple 9 years ago and started our forever family!
