It's been 9 YEARS!!!

On October 21, 2000
I FINALLY had decided who I was going to marry
and I was sealed to Daniel Ray Sorensen
for Time and All Eternity in the Washington DC (LDS) temple
It was as perfect a day as I could have imagined.
It was during my favorite season, but the weather was unseasonably warm..so we could wear short sleeves and be comfortable.
Some of the leaves had changed.
as many of you who know me are aware, I have left a piece of my heart back East~ and the four seasons (especially fall) is why. It was all my favorites in one day!
Dan, Fall, Maryland, DC temple, both our families...aaah!

Sooo to help celebrate our Anniversary today..here is some of our favorite pictures from our wedding!

ENJOY!
















So, we celebrated TRUE marriage and having-a-family-together style,
and I slept with Dacie in her room while she tried to throw up all night..
THEN last night we had kids sleeping in our bathroom on mattresses, and waking us all hours of the night....aaah, that is what real love is
"Not gazing in each others eyes but looking outward in the same direction"
Rolling up our sleeves and getting to work... together
Boy, I am tired!
Dan and I's wedding invitation picture
9 years later!~ You see any differences?



The grey hairs are appearing, our backs, knees and joints are starting to hurt, AND we are a little slower getting out of bed in the mornings

BUT this is always what we wanted. We are growing old together

Happy 9 Year Anniversary Danny!!!

I LOVE you!

You guys are one of my absolute favorites, and it's been so fun to see what good parents you are & how sweet your kids are.
Love you, Alicia.
