The Asays have been very this these last few days--Thanksgiving on Thursday then a wedding on Saturday--I loved it. We had Thanksgiving at Asay's at noon then headed over to the Simmons' for round #2. Everything was delicious and I am truly grateful for so many blessings. The wedding was also great-I love going to cealings and being reminded of how special a marriage is and what we can do to make it better. Some great advice: Bruce R. McConkie said the most important thing we'll ever do in this life is marry the right person in the right place by the proper authority. One of the general authorities said the most important things a husband tell his wife are the following: I love you, that looks good on you, I'm sorry, we can't afford it. President Morrison also suggested making your spouse the most important thing, being their best friend.
Here are my little love bugs a few mornings ago. Kandace is usually up before Stetson so after I feed her we go into Stetson's room sometimes and wake him up together. These 2 are a great pair--Stetson makes her laugh every day and she loves the entertainment. The next pic is Stetson in his pj's and irrigating boots--he was helping me rake leaves. I thikn we're almost there. We had a lot of leaves!!
Maybe I should explain my true feelings for icing. I love icing. So much that I've never had a cake without it and I never plan to. I think icing is just as fundamental as the cake, because believe me, I've had icing by itself...lots of times (pilsbury funfetti is best). I think icing is better by itself than cake by itself.
However, referring to my spouse as "icing on the cake" was probably a lousy choice of words. Just to set the record straight, even though you already know it, Michael is much more to me than icing on the cake.
The only beef I have with the twilight series is this--Bella and Edward don't think they can live without each other--she sees no purpose in her life without him and vise versa. I was actually depressed when reading the parts where she talked about life without him, because in her eyes, life had no meaning without him. I know I know, I'm sucking all the romance out of it, but here's my thing: in theory, I've always believed I should be a whole person despite others who may come in and out of my life.
I've been taught and believed whole heartedly that our significant others, whether they be our boyfriend, spouse, whatever, should only be the icing on the cake. I never believed in phrases like"soul mate, "I can't live without him" because stuff happens (we get dumped, lose our spouses) and when we have to tough it out on our own, I think we should behappy enough to live with ourselves.
I think anniversaries are truly something to celebrate, and Michael's mom and dad celebrated their 29th anniversary last Thursday. Stetson was so excited he decided to wear his bday suit(not really u just can't see his undies).
In other news, I finally bit the bullet and read Twilight, then I watched it, now I'm about halfway done with New Moon. Hopefully I'll finish it in time to see the movie. Do I like the books? Yes I do. They're fast, easy reads and its been fun to get into reading again--regretfully I haven't read for "fun" in forever.
Daniel and Kasi's wedding is quicky approaching, as are the Holidays--I'm excited, I love the holidays (and weddings).
