How we became the Templetons:
Caleb and I met on the beach in 2003. He was the chair rental guy, and I thought he had a cute butt. We were very young, fairly non-religious, and completely crazy. Through the prayers of our mommies (I'm sure), we came back to Christ, Caleb came into the Church in 2007, and were married in the summer of 2008.

Oh yeah... and then there's this guy... 
I'm eagerly awaiting the day that he goes to "sit in Jesus's lap," but until then I'm embracing every opportunity he provides to grow in patience and selflessness, one hair and pile of vomit at a time.
