Happy Anniversary to my Prince Charming

8 years ago today I married the man of my dreams. See the picture?Hes the real thang baby! Hee hee:) Sorry Joey I could not resist this. The kids are laughing right now. Oh, and so am I. Sorry I took more of a comic approach this year. Last year I did the slideshow and all, remember how sweet that was? :)

Okay, on a serious note now. . .when Joey and I started dating in July of 1999, I immediately knew he was the one I wanted to marry. And one year later, we were married(lucky me!) He has every quality I ever wanted in a future husband-sweet, loving, funny, cute, quite debonair, righteous, laid-back, trustworthy, responsible, great with kids, solid in the gospel, thoughtful, humble and selfless. Oh, and a hottie with a body(again see side picture-look at those muscles!) We have created a beautiful life together with our three gorgeous and amazing daughters. I feel so privileged that he chose me to spend the rest of his life and eternity with. He is the best husband and father. He is also my most bestest friend. He is always there for me, he puts up with my mood swings, he is a good listener, he helps around the house way more than a lot of guys out there, he gives good back rubs, he puts his family first-I could go on and on about what an amazing man he is.



I just love you so much Joey! Thanks for everything but most of all thanks for loving me and our children in the gentle way that you do. I'm excited to see what the future holds for us, aren't you? Its been a great 8 years! I can only imagine what the next 8 will bring. Happy Anniversary!


Then-just the 2 of us


Now- we're outnumbered:)


And I really do love you more than ice cream. . . :)

Happy Anniversary you two! What a lovely couple you are and what a beautiful family! Todd and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary this year too!

Congrats!!! You are such a cute couple. This is anniversary week for our family too. Erin and Patrick were married on the 8th and John and I were married on the 9th of July. We are leaving tomorrow to go to San Diego for 3 days to celebrate our 43rd. I'll be back late Wed.

I'll be in touch then. ...have you decided if you can come over next week? Map quest says it takes 34 min. and is 26 miles. It takes longer in traffic but I would surely love to have you come.

Happy Anniversary to Holly and Joey! Isn't it fun to think you have an eternity more of them?!? One day in Heaven we'll be chillin' and you'll say "it's our 4,876,098,643rd anniversary today." What gift is appropriate for that one anyways?

Jan said...

Ah, you guys are such a beautiful family. Happy anniversary! I loved your sweet words -- and knowing both of you, I can say that you are just awesome!! Love you guys.

Sheri said...

8 years, wow! I like your photoshop job of Joey, next year I will have to photoshop Lincoln. So, I saw Joey's blog for the first time today. I can't believe he blogs too!
