Three Year Anniversary

Three years doesn't seem too long to be married, but a lot has happened during this short time. Allow me to indulge myself in a brief recap. We've experienced/currently experiencing a lot of things alone, together, and with friends and family...





wedding day * honeymoon * fun and practical gifts * buying a bed * buying a tv * 2 kids * process of pregnancy and child birth * process of adoption * living in Provo * living in 3 different apartments * putting furniture together * Marcus finishing 3 years of his PhD program * Jenny taught high school * Jenny stopped teaching high school * trips to California * trips to Michigan * waterskiing/tubing/swimming/boating in Kentucky * camping at Arches National Park * Jenny getting to know the Greens * Marcus getting to know the Hauberts * Marcus becoming an uncle * Jenny becoming the first daughter-in-law * birthdays * anniversaries * Chris's job in CA * Colin gets home from mission * Bryan goes on mission * Analisa gets driver's license * Scotty dyes his hair (and gets engaged) * Lisa breaks her leg * Lindsay breraks collar bone * Ian starts 1st grade * Adam builds deck * Ted gets new job in CA * Peggy loves new house! * Hunter becomes a brother * Jackson starts to walk * Christmas in California with no snow * Christmas in Michigan with a lot of it * Indoor water park in January * Outdoor water park in Provo * Samantha's surgery * many doctors * many prayers * much fasting * Jenny starting a card business * Marcus endlessly supporting Jenny in any new adventure * getting our Honda * selling my Saturn * Tivo! * Marcus teaching classes at BYU * a lot of scrapbooking * repainting walls * painting dressers * painting faces * fireworks * yard sales * hiking Timp * cold winters * hot summers * football games * basketball games * waking up too early * staying up too late * beautiful restful sleep * no more sleep * Sunday dinners with brothers * wrestling matches with Samantha * meeting great friends * saying goodbye to friends *





And for those of you who do not know, Marcus was matched in Spokane, WA for his internship. We will be moving in August, saying goodbye to Provo, BYU, fabulous friends, and wonderful family -- and saying hello to all that is ahead.




Happy Anniversary Marcus.
I love you.

Congrats!! That's exciting. What's even more exciting is I'm from Clarkston Washington - 2 1/2 hours south of Spokane, which was the big city. I think you'll enjoy Spokane. It's beautiful up there.

Wow. It doesn't seem like 3 years ago that we were at your wedding. Can so much time have passed? You guys are a wonderful couple and family. Here's to 60+ more!

I am so excited about you guys moving to Spokane. OK, so we're still not close but we're way closer than Seattle to Provo. Road trip time. Happy day.
