Wait, what is eternal marriage? In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have the opportunity, if we choose, to be married for "time and all eternity" rather than "till death do we part", just like Adam and Eve were married. Here is a great link about what it all means and why someone would want that. And if you are still intrigued, check out this link: Marriage
By the way, because of the possibility of an eternal marriage, anyone who chooses can also be with their family members again after death. What a great blessing for everyone, especially we who ache from the loss of a loved one. Watch this video about Our Heavenly Father's Plan.
The most exciting thing this week was M getting her braces off! Look at that smile!
My kids decided they wanted to make cookies for our 4th of July barbecue so they spent Saturday afternoon working on that. After doubling the batch and baking them all, we decided they had made huge cookies so they made another batch and made each cookie tiny. I think they are the perfect size now! Thank goodness the store only had the massive bag of red, white, and blue M&Ms available. And... now I have a full cookie jar too.
