Happy 30th Anniversary!!!!

Well this weekend after the wedding we celebrated Mom and Dads 30th anniversary. It was the 13th but we wanted everyone to be together to celebrate. For those of you that don't know, all of us kids put a book together of old friends and family members. We had everyone write memories or stories and then we put them all together. And a thank you to all of those that helped out. They loved the book and we spent 2 hours reading and laughing at all the stories. It was a success and we would do it again (maybe) :) We love you guys and heres to 30 more!!!

Congrats James...

This is Mike, hes a friend from Ireland and has the coolest accent!
And of course me and Jill.

Dad performing, he asked everyone to not throw their
undies at him until the final song!

The infamous skirt pyramid and the sisters with Grace.

What good looking pairs!

James got married this weekend and so we went to the Joseph Smith building for the reception. It was a nice room and we had a good time with family and friends. Dad sang some Elvis, of course, and was a hit. We had some good grub and then spent the rest of the night talking and laughing. As you can see we got pretty bored by the end and attempted the ever popular reception pyramid! :) James and his new wife were excited and I think even more happy when everything was finally over. Congrats you two. (Oh and yes I found out never to wear a pink tank top under a black shirt for pictures) :) Oh and yes we cut Todd's hair. Its still thick and pretty long but we got it off of his neck. Hes still my GQ!!!

Happy 4th and Birthdays

We had such a good time last week. We went up to Logan on Wednesday and spent the whole weekend up there. Mamaw and Papaw were in town and then Diane came up for a couple days. It was a lot of fun, we did the fireworks at Utah State, played games and a ton of cards, went and saw the car show, did a lot of eating and grilling, went and saw Get Smart (cute movie), karaoke of course, bocce ball and croquet, had a poker tourney until about 3 am and, like its a shock to anyone, Mamaw cleaned house. Then we celebrated my and Mamaws birthday and had an amazing cheesecake. It was nice spending time together and just doing some fun family things and putting on about 10 pounds. We cant wait for the next get together! And yes I chopped all my hair off. I thought to myself I'm almost 30 and I have looked 15 since I was 15 so I went balls to the wall. Todd seems to like it :) I know its sad when your to the age that cutting your hair has the equivalent of piercing your nose or tattooing your butt! Hope everyone had a good holiday!

Good Job Todd!!!!

Well we just finished the softball season and it was a lot of fun. I would like to thank Brianne for coming to the games and sitting with me :) But the team did well and played a triple header for the championship. They only had 10 minutes between each game so needless to say by game 3 they were pooped and ended up losing it by 2 but it was a good season. I hate to brag, but Todd was player of the game with a hit at every up to bat and 3 runs. Hes so talented :) Good job guys!!!
