I remember when we were attending Jonah's school concert and the fifth graders did a set from a movie called "High School Musical". I remember thinking, "Gag me, another lame Disney original movie!" But then it was all the hype so we rented it and watched it. And I was vindicated, "Totally lame", I thought to myself. But then I watched it again, and again, and again (Thanh you Noah!!!) ANd not only did I love it, but my children and my parents as well!! So when we heard there was a second one...we were geeked! We counted down the days and planned a "HSM 2" party. It was a blast. And now we've watched it at least a dozen times and I love it more every time. Now, don't get me wrong....Lord of the Rings it is NOT..but there's just something about it. And I can't tell you what that thing is....but I just love these movies!

Matt -

9 years ago today we stood inside that little white chapel, sweating like mad and promised to remain faithful, love each other always, defend each other, and stay together till death. Looking back I remember so much about that day. But most of all I remember the look on your face as I came down the aisle with my daddy. I knew there was no turning back. I loved you so completely that day.

As the years have passed, so much has happened. We've moved 7 times, added 5 beautiful children to our family, cried, suffered, laughed, danced, kissed, fought, and held each other tight. There is not one moment that I would trade. And yet seeing that one moment where you placed a ring on my finger seems to be the most poignant today. We were so young, so thin! And God was there. One of the reasons we are here today is Him. He has always been near. And, more than once, you have helped me to Him. Helped me find Him when I feared that He had left. You are an amazing man.

Some would think that 9 years would make love fade or dim somewhat. Yet, I love you more completely this day than that day 9 years ago. My love has deepened, aged and grown with every passing moment. I love you dear husband....here's to the rest of our lives.
