I, Sam, in faith, honesty and love, take you, Andy, to be my wedded husband, to share with you God's plan for our lives together united in Christ. And with God's help, to strengthen and encourage you to be a strong spiritual leader for us in our life, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, in joys and in sorrows, until death do we part. I give you all that I have: myself and my love. In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. With this ring I seal my vow of love to you, Andy, and pray I may fulfill God's place in our home, in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Happy third anniversary, Andy

Oh and did I mention the 95 pounds of raw animal in our kitchen? This past Sunday the boys had their inaugural barbeque smoke-out on their new home built barbeque. And while for the entire day I was confined to the couch with the worst headache of my life, I managed to grab a few bites of beef. As I laid there I starting thinking over all the people that were in my house. It was a small gathering of family and friends, all the people that have given and supported these boys over the past 9 months. And I am thankful. I am thankful for my husband who found his passion and had the ambition to make his dreams come true. I have a hard time remembering why he is doing this sometimes. While it is fun, he hopes to one day cater full time and do this as a
