"The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners." -- The Family: A Proclamation to the World by the First Presidency and Council of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken." -- Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJV)
There are two exciting things happening this Saturday. One is the White House Garden tour. We went last year and it was awesome to be so close to the White House. Usually you have to stand a mile away, but a couple times a year you get to tromp through the front yard like you own the place. Of course you can't actually go on the lawn. Albert's mom made that mistake and the Secret Service made her get off.
The second exciting thing is my bachelorette party. It's going to be the least risque bachelorette party ever...I agreed to have it with the idea that there would be no fake male body parts. Sara (mentioned above) bought me a cute t-shirt and veil to wear that night and we're going to a hotel in the neighborhood with a rotating restaurant. Cool huh! I was reading about have to have a good bachelorette party and we're breaking every rule. We're having it close by, no boose, no strippers, and picture taking is encouraged. Hopefully it'll still be fun :)
