Weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries....

Well as I had previously stated it was a busy couple of weeks with girls camp and my brothers wedding, but it was all worth it....I think.

Girls Camp turned out great.

We had 11 girls come, which is the most that have ever attended.

The weather was perfect while we were there....nice and cool (especially compared to last year when it was stinkin hot and I was 9 months pregnant). We of course cannot have girls camp without a little drama, but all in all, we made it out alive. It is mostly thanks to Deanna for everything turning out so great....so thanks Bishop Hilton for letting us borrow your wife for a week!!!

Last Tuesday Annalise and I flew out to Utah for my brothers wedding. It was quite the adventure trying to get on a flight. We flew on a buddy pass that my sister-in-law was kind enough to share with us. Which ment we flew standby, but we weren't having very much luck getting on a flight. We tried to go direct and it was full, so we flew to Cincinnatti and tried to catch a flight from there to SLC, but they were all full and so we tried to run to three different gates to catch connecting flights, but despite my running abilities we were not succesful in making it to the gate in time. To make this shorter, I ended up flying into Las Vegas and driving with my bro and sis in law from there, it was quite the adventure....and the wedding had not even started. Kevin tried the same thing on Thursday and Friday, and unfortunatly never made it out there.....so maybe he just needed a weekend to himself to miss me and Annalise. You know what people say...
"Distance makes the heart grow fonder." :)


So while in Utah we had a baby shower for my two sister-in-laws on wednesday.....they are to two cutest pregnant people ever....

Then a wedding shower on Thursday for my new sister-in-law Lauren...

Then the sealing was on Friday ..... congrats Matt and Lauren.....

followed by the grooms dinner....

Then the reception was on Saturday....

So needless to say, there was no rest for the weary. We had a lot of fun. But after two weeks away from home, I was soooo ready to come home.


In the meantime among all of this chaos it was my birthday on the 2nd, I am 27 now, that is so weird. I am now closer to 30 then ever before, but that is fine, because my shortness keeps me young.





And Kevin and I had our anniversary on Sunday (the 17th)We have been married for 6 years now.....wow how fast it goes. I have loved every minute of it....Kevin is the most amazing person I know, and who else could be as patient as he is with me?And he makes the cutest baby.....just look at her.


Until my next novel....TTFN.

OMGoodness!! I agree that Kevin (and you) make the cutest baby ever! What a great pic! Well, Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, Congratulations on surviving Camp and welcome home!! (Let me know if I missed anything.) :) It is good to have you back. Poor Kevin being stuck in Airport Limbo. Bleck. Let him know he has my sympathy. That is always my greatest fear when I am traveling. I hate airports!

WOW, your family has been BUSY! What a crazy airport adventure, especially with Annalise with you, I'm glad you finally made it out! I am also very glad that the weather was so nice for camp this year! Happy Anniversary! That picture of you two on the beach looks like it should be from a movie. We sure are glad you're back!

Very nice novel. Thanks for sharing. I think you should do your hair like that for Sunday. I for one would like to see it in person. :) Congratulations to all of your family members that are married, pregnant, to you and Kevin for six years of married bliss, and happy birthday. Enjoy being 27, I wish I could think of you as "old", but alas, in one month I'll be a year older than you. Now THAT'S old. :)

I very much enjoy your novels! I totally know how you felt about being home! Brandon and I practically didn't leave the house all week when we got home from being gone! we were in need of some "us time" and some down time. It was SO much fun hanging out with you! I wish you guys lived closer, maybe you can talk your husband into going to BYU now that three out of the five siblings live in Utah!? hope you have rested up! talk to you soon.

Oh my goss - that is THE CUTEST little outfit. Your daughter is adorable. I'm glad you posted some pics of the wedding. I am sad i wasn't able to attend. It looks like it was fun, though. And i am a big fan of Lauren. Matt's a lucky guy.
