2 birthdays & a wedding

Friday night Matt and I were able to attend the wedding of Emily Porter and Andrew Moulton. Congrats to them both! They are such a cute couple.It was a lot of fun for me because I grew up with Emily, and went to school with Andrew. So it was a big reunion for my family and I. Matt knew the Porters from the singles ward, and so he had a lot of old friends there too.
Sunday night we had a wonderful dinner at the Aprecio's for Ben and my birthday. It was so much fun, and I got a coloring book, pretty ear rings from Hawaii and a sweater. We got Ben some stuff for his XBox because he had foot surgery recently, and so he spends a lot of time playing games.
Monday I took the day off of work to get some things done around the house and finish my Christmas shopping. I painted, put up some pictures and cleaned things up a bit. It was a great day to be home and warm. It snowed all morning and it was very windy. I took a picture of the mountain that we have a view of from our bedroom window. In the picture, that is our house on the right, so we don't have that stupid pole in our way. Its so beautiful, and I am so thankful to have this house.

6 degrees of Separation: Andrew's older brother (Aaron) is the 2nd Counselor in our Bishopric! How funny is THAT?!

We wanted to call you at work yesterday, but we missed you (I guess YOU actually missed work). So we'll call today after the kids get home.

We were reminiscing about how it was 5 years ago that Doug sprang his "We're going to get a dog" decision on us...we were on our way to your birthday dinner at California Pizza Kitchen.

Hope you had a hap-Hap-HAPPY day!
