This afternoon, Cody and I had the privilege of attending the temple sealing of one of my good friends, Bethany Caswell, and her fiancé (now husband, of course) Benjamin Fuller. Bethany and I went to high school together, swam on the swim team, and her family even lived down the street from mine--I remember many a night spent playing ping pong in her garage and a few clam bakes in their backyard (her family is originally from Rhode Island, and they certainly know how to do a clam bake!). Anyway, Bethany is one of the most amazing girls I've ever known, and she has been a great example to me. It was such a sweet experience to see her be sealed to a righteous young man.
It brought back memories of our sealing, as attending sealings often does, and Cody and I reflected on that wonderful day almost three years ago now. How blessed we are to have the power of God here on earth, able to bind families together forever! And now we have a sweet little boy who is part of our family, who brings us much joy and will do for all eternity. I'm just so grateful to have such wonderful promises made to us and will do all I can to make sure they come true.
And here's a cool collage of photos--they had a little photo booth at the reception, and so we took a few pictures. I don't think we've ever had so many family pictures taken of us, actually. Sorry Joshua's head is covering Cody's in almost every picture...oh, well. We need to get professional ones taken sometime...
