6 years ago......

..... we started on an amazing journey. Yesterday was our anniversary. I can't believe we have been married 6 years. I still remember our wedding day and all the details. We were only engaged for about 6 months so my mom got right to work. She was the expert wedding coordinator. She had already put together 3 weddings before hand. She was amazing. I'll never be able to thank her for all she did. Oh yea...dad too, for fittin the bill!;) I loved the colors I picked out. The bridesmaids dresses, thanks to mom and Aunt Debbie for those, they were beautiful. Even girls 8 months pregnant look good in them, Annie! LOVE how my cousin Hunter pulled a wagon down the aisle with three cuties, Emily, Max and Haidyn, in it. I am pleased with myself for letting the bridesmaid pick out how they wanted their hair done unlike some weddings I have been in, MANDY!!! I LOVE my dress. It was straight with a beautiful long train. I wish I could have worn it longer! I love how Jason and I got to see each other before the ceremony! It was our special moment together and we were able to get the pics out of the way! I loved how we faced out into the guests. I love how my wedding album turned out. I love how when Ella looks at our wedding book she always wants to know were she is. So blessed to have all my memories that I LOVE captured for me to cherish forever.

6 years ago I became a wife to such an amazing man. Thank you Jason for working so hard for our family. Thank you for being a hands on, fabulous Daddy. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving God and being an awesome witness for those around you. I love you and can't wait for many more anniversaries!

Here is the poem my grandfather wrote for our wedding invitation. Personally Sisters, I think mine is the best!;)

A miracle? It has to be,
Though some will say a mystery:
How this one, who came our way,
Becomes the bride we see today.
She's a beauty, in gown and train,
A cause for tears without the pain.
She and her father, in awhile,
Will be progressing down the aisle;
As they approach a stately guy.
Fidgeting nervously, standing by,
I'll be leafing through the years,
Back to a day with similar fears.
Now, Dear God, we turn to You,
And ask what only You can do;
Bless our children with love to share,
And keep them in Your watchful care.
This, Dear Lord, is all we say;
In the name of Jesus is how we pray.
Amen


Some pics from our wedding album. Sorry for the quality I scanned them in and apparently my scanner is on the fritz!
