Survived the MTC

Since my life is pretty uneventful it looks like this blog is going to turn into a mission update!

So weird to see them doing the traditional "where you going photo"

Their MTC district, my Dad is the District Leader.
Its been really fun to hear their experiences thus far and look forward to when they aren't just roll play experience.

Mission Farewell

They left for the MTC today! Sad and happy all togther. (2 more goodbyes AAUUUGGHH!!!)
It is now 3:47pm and my Dad just called and they are done for the day. They made my Dad a district leader!

Thanks to all who came and helped and supported my parents.
We had a great day.

Thanksgiving 2011

Since my parents are having their Mission farewell on Sunday and leaving Monday, Eric decided to fly in for the festivities but we didn't tell Mom and Dad, do they look surprised???

Julie made a rule that we couldn't eat until we had a family picture taken

Random shots Leslie, Kylie, Alyssa

Laura, Chase and Zack

Karlee and I

Lynn had a great idea of inviting some friends to come to have my parents practice their missionary skills on....
We had a Muslim girl, a rocker, a drunk, a polygamist, a priest and another drunk. We were laughing so hard as Laura and Lynn played their rolls so well Lynn was falling on the ground drunk, Laura was so serious we couldn't get her to crack a smile.

I went up to Logan this past weekend to stay with Karlee and Kylie and see Jay and Lindsay Bickmore cross the finish line at their first marathon.
It is always an emotional thing but this was really hard to see Lindsay cry you could tell she was happy, excited, accomplished, and in PAIN!!!!
It rained all weekend but we still had a fun time.
Jordan her fiance and Kylee ran with her at the end to give her a little support.

His time is not accurate, he started 16 minutes late.

Nancy's Surprise Retirement Party

Classic we caught the surprise on her face!

Alan, Steve, Me, Eric decorating the club house

Eric giving a speech.

All I can say is she is lucky she lived to see it, we all wanted to kill her because of her suspicion. Or I should say we are lucky my Dad is still alive, because my Mom questioned his every move and even drove around looking for him!
Thank you for everyone who came and helped out! We have the greatest family......

Annie's Bachelorete Party!!!

The plan was for 6 crazy mormon girls to go to "The Westerner", yes it's a country bar. Annie wanted to do Karoke and ride the mechanical bull. It's funny how you are actually flattered when people ID you at an older age. In fact they were scanning our drivers license when we got there and we heard some other guy said "Oh they are old enough".
To Annie's disapointment they only do the mechanical bull on the weekends so we settled for some line dancing and then karoke. We were offered free shots for the night from another fellow karoker, but I don't think he was talking about diet coke shots so we declined. Annie and Merri rocked it with TLC Shoop. Melissa Lynn aka Eminem has some hidden talents! and Melissa Kay was kind enough to pick a song for our "shot" friend to sing, mind you he was a big bald guy with a real low voice. The song she picked was "Like a virgin" she was brave enough to go on stage with him though and she stole the show.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.....

Such a yummy lunch at a Mexican place with the best guaq I have ever had. Manoa loves his Besos, I got a little more than I expected.

Vegas 2011

I was able to spend four fabulous days in Vegas with my dear friend Joanie. We had a lot of fun walking the strip (until the blisters set in), drooling over the chocolate fountain

getting excited for.......

a legit fashion show at "Fashion Show Mall" this runway rises out of the ground

and the models are stanging in it.

some were cute and spunky some needed a little help.
