It's Been A While

So I haven't blogged in a while, so let's see what we've been up to. Last Saturday, we went down to South Jordan for Josh's little brother's wedding open house. It was fun to see our family that we haven't seen for a while. Austin and Mylissa got married earlier this summer. I have to give a shout out to Suzanne, she is Josh's cousin and is so much fun to be around. She makes us laugh so much. She is pregnant and due in a couple of weeks and we are so happy for them!

Earlier that day, Elizabeth got to perform at Jordan High's football game half time. She was the cutest little cheerleader! I didn't get any good pictures of Lu doing her cheerleading because my camera was having a moment and my pictures weren't focused, and I was also taking pictures with Shannon's camera, but here she is with her friend Rachel. There was tractor lawn mower just sitting in the middleof the grass and DJ decided that he wanted to play on it but was NOT happy when his friend Anthony got on to play with him. He was so happy when he got to be on it by himself. Let's just say he has sharing problems...
DJ and Noah love to do break dancing moves and love the Step Up 2 movie so DJ was showing us his "moves" he called them, it was pretty funny. His mom kept telling him to settle down and then he would come up to me and say "but I want to do my moves". Then Josh started playing the piano and DJ wanted to play with him, he loves playing the piano with Josh.It was fun to spend time with our family and celebrate Austin and Mylissa.

This weekend was a dog filled, family filled weekend, too. Cody and Tara went to Arizona and Josh and I said we would watch Athena for them. She is the cutest little Pug girl and we love her.

My grandma also came up from Spanish Fork this weekend and it was fun to spend time with her. We don't see her very often even though we only live 2 hours away! We went to dinner last night and then to breakfast this morning. She came over and met our dogs and loved them. She had dog treats in her purse that she had for her dogs and forgot about them but Ringo found them real quick and then was looking for more! My grandma dumped her purse out so he could see there wasn't any more in there.

We hung out with Jade and Brittiney today, we haven't really hung out with them for a while so it was really fun. We went to Charlie's and got shakes and then went to see this movie...
It was not good.
But being with my little brother and sis in law was. Their baby is due in less than two months!! So excited to be an aunt!!

Happy 1st Anniversary to Cody and Tara!! I hope you guys had a fun weekend and you have many more great years together!! You are the best friends!! We love you guys!

Here is a video of Josh and Athena, I know Tara was Athena-sick while she was away from her so here is what she did with Josh all weekend!!
I also read this book this week. I loved it and couldn't put it down, I hate that my break at work is only 30 minutes!! I read every night at home while Josh played Halo. I loved the way the story ended.

You guys always look so cute together! When are we going to get together and hang out? I am SO jealous that you get to hang out with your families all the time. I miss mine so much! Love Ya!

It's about time you post something! Sheesh!!! I've been waiting FOR - like - EVER for a new post.

And what do you mean Cody and Tara "are the best friends"??? Because they hang out on the same continent? Because they actually visit you and talk to you regularly? Because they don't make you eat yucky smelly cheese potato gnocchi!

Well, if that's what being "the best friends" takes, then I want nothing of it! What about cancelling camping trips right when you get the fire started? Does that count for nothing?? Or being the youngest people in the audience by like 30 years at a concert???

One day, we will be referred to on your blog as "the bestEST friends times infinity!" and my campaign for that title begins today!!!

Yes, we see all of your friends on your blog and we're not intimidated... they smile and hug you, send their dogs to be with you... yes, we see it! But we won't turn away. But if we fight for that best friendship, we may be disappointed. Turn away, and we'll be fine... at least for a while. And dying in our bed many years from now, would we be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance... just ONE CHANCE... to come back to this blog and tell all of your friends that they may take our lives, but the will never take our FRIENDSHIP!!

Sorry... I get carried away sometimes.
