"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

Fall fun!

I have been so excited for this time of year!! I think I've held off long enough of pulling out the fall decorations! I went to pebbles in my pocket (in st george by Christensen's) and found this cute kit to make these fun pumpkins! All you need is wood blocks, craft paper, paint and of COARSE Mod Podge!

Started out like this:
Turned into this:
I love them! They are so so fun and cute! Just thought I'd give all you ladies out there, who like to craft, an idea!


p.s. does anyone know of a craft store or anywhere really that sells wood blocks in lots of different sizes? I don't really have time to chop trees and saw them myself!

Jeff and Bobbie's Wedding!

We had the opportunity to attend the Sealing of some good friends of ours on Thursday! It was so fun to be a part of their special day! The reception was so pretty and we are so happy for the Larsens!

Rob and I waiting for the Bride and Groom!
This picture was to show the temple being painted! You can see half way up where the fresh white paint is.
Rob and Elder Peterson! A friend from his mission who he hadn't seen in a long while! They made me take a "funny face" picture! Nerds!
Again.. Robbie thought he was funny! He just HAD to hold the flowers!
Mr & Mrs :)
FINALLY a decent picture of the two of us together... This is a very daunting task for us!
oh and this is AWESOME! We got it at the book store and well worth the $$.. It says FAMILY but each letter if somehow/where part of the temple. ex: the A is a window frame and the Y the gate outside the temple... CAN YOU SEE IT!!! I love it so much!
Anyway once again life is keeping us so busy! But I can't complain!!

Boy Brag!

So some of my friends did some really cute posts about their Husbands and I thought the idea was great so I decided to jump on the boy brag train! Although my Husband never sees our blog so he'll probably never even see this!

Robbie ROCKS! He is seriously so great! At times (as I'm sure you ALL experience) I do stress BUT I wouldn't ever go back and have it any other way! Did you know that in the past 2 years I've never heard him complain? Not once! And in the 14 months we've been married, although he may forget to say Thank you once in a while!!, he NEVER ever is negative! Even if I try to push his buttons just to get a rise out of him!
He is going to school full time and working full time. He is a very busy man and an extremely hard worker! He may hate the fact that he is only half way done with school but he isn't about to give up! Most days he's up by 4:30 and going and going all day long!
You will never hear this man say anything bad about anyone! He has the ability to see the good in everyone around him (which has been a great example for me). He isn't a man of many words but He'd be the first one to drop everything for a friend.

I thank our Heavenly Father often for blessing my life with someone so easy going and who has such an amazing testimony! I love my husband with all my heart! I can't wait to see what the future holds for us or where we will end up!!
*The following pictures are from last night! I woke up from the wonderful Sunday nap and Robbie has taken care of dinner and our piles of Laundry!!*
HOBO Dinners and grilled corn! My favorite!
..taste test!
WALA! Perfect husband and chef!

Thanks girls for the great idea of the Husband post!! I think everyone should keep this going!!
