Sweet Sixteen

I can't believe that Emily is 16 now! We have absolutely loved having her in our home for the past 4 years. I'm not excited for the dating years ahead of us. I will protect my baby sister from silly boys! Since this was a BIG birthday we wanted to make it special, so we surprised Emily and her friends with a night out on the town. Being chauffered around in a limo. Myself, our sister Susan, and my SIL Staci came along to make sure that the girls were on their best behavior. Really we just wanted to ride around in a limo too.

For dinner we went to Organ Stop Pizza. I worked there for 3 years during and after highschool. It's nice to go back every once in awhile to enjoy the food and music, but I don't miss smelling like onions every day.

These girls were lots of fun! Here they are outside OSP waiting for the limo. It was fun having everyone looking at us and wondering why we were so special.

Our next stop was Mesa Frozen Yogurt for desert. Yummy! Then our driver Russel drove us around while we did silly girl things. Our last stop was Fry's. We picked up some treats and popcorn for the girls to have while they watched Twilight at our house afterwards.

Good thing the ride was almost over. It started to get a little crazy in there! Happy Birthday Emily! We love and appreciate you!

I'm OLD!

I can't believe that I just turned 30! My wonderful husband planned a super fun surprise party for me on Tuesday. Two days before my birthday. The key to a surprise party is to not have it on the actual b-day. I was lied to many times that day by many different people. You all know where liars go. Even the ward executive secretary called and woke me up at 7:30 am to lie to me. He apologized several times as he was lying to me. "I'm so sorry but the Bishop wont be able to see you tonight. I hate to do this to you, but can we move your appointment to Sunday. I'm so sorry again." I think he felt guilty. Hee Hee. That's alright I forgive you all. We had a wonderful luau party at my in-laws. For dinner we had yummy Hawaiian haystacks. One of my favorites.Thanks to everyone that was there and that worked so hard to pull it all off. I feel so special. Oh and to Staci who lied to me 7 times that day I still expect to go house hunting with you.

Monster Jammin Fun

Rob and I took the boys to Monster Jam back in January. We had a blast! I love this picture of Tanner. I can't get enough of this sweet boy.

This is Mason's 3rd time going to Monster Jam. He now expects it every year.

It was a long night and a peaceful drive home.
