Girls Weekend

In November I had another girls weekend with my best friends.  I picked Clar up in Springville (she lives in Price but we wanted to ride down together) and we made our traditional stop at Dairy Queen (when we were both pregnant, we only made it 40 minutes on a road trip before stopping to eat at DQ).  We met Tasha and Kassie in Hurricane then all went up to Springdale together.  A friend hooked us up with a room at the Cliffrose and we had dinner at a restaurant that three of us worked at together in college.  The restaurant has changed but the gift shop is the same.  We stayed up late swapping clothes, hot tubbing, and talking about everything and anything, but especially old conquests ;)  The next morning we had a big breakfast at one of our favorite places, Oscars, and then had a great idea to go change the graduation year on the H hill. Shhh...don't tell anyone.  It was quite the hike up there, and all of our hands were white washed from moving rocks, but we felt pretty funny with our prank.  We did some shopping, had dinner, and then Clar and I headed home that evening.  It was a quick trip, but very much needed.  I have the best friends in the whole world and am so lucky that we are still able to find time to spend together.

 I found a frightening horse mask in the gift shop and gave Tasha a ride :D




Jack's 32nd Birthday

(I'm having to go back and catch up on posts for our yearly book and then I'll back-date them ;)

Jack turned 32 on August 21st!  We spent an amazing weekend in Park City with some dear friends, the Watsons.  Ruth's Chris, hot tubbing, and shopping helped make the weekend wonderful for the birthday boy.  ON his actual birthday, we did gifts at home, spent time relaxing as a family, and he and I went on a date to dinner and a movie.  I love this husband of mine and am so blessed to spend each of his years with him.






 I made a disaster of a cake...it was still good though:)

Halloween 2014

Our October this year was just so fun and full of fall-ish and Halloween-ish activities! :) We went to Cornbelly's 3 times, spent plenty of time outside going for walks and throwing leaves in the pond, and watched lots of Halloween movies.  The plan was for Olivia to be Elsa for Halloween since we already had the dress and I just assumed she'd want to.  Jack informed me that I may be forcing it on her (ahem!) so I asked her what she wanted to be ("anything you want!") and she thought about it for a second before responding with "An ipad!  No, a raspberry! The letter I!"  I told her to think on it, and the next day she settled on a witch.  I looked for costumes but didn't see any I liked, so I got some material at Joann's and made her an easy shift dress with big sleeves and an orange tulle tutu to go underneath.  She had a Halloween party at preschool where the parents came and watched them perform Halloween songs, then ate monster cupcakes they had made.  We made jack-o-lantern pizzas for dinner and then went trick-or-treating.  Berlin LOVED trick-or-treating and was so cute holding up her bucket and saying "taintoo!" when she got her candy.  I had bought Berlin's Snow White costume at Costco the month before (when I thought Liv would be Elsa) and got it a size big, but it ran so small that we had to squeeze her into it and couldn't snap it!  It was cute though because the girls still looked like their costumes went together, as Snow and the witch who gave her the apple :)  Jack and I topped of Halloween night with our traditional JCW's and a movie (this year was the Addams Family).  Always my favorite holiday!
















Berlin loved trick-or-treating so much that every morning for several days after she would find her bucket and go to the door, asking to go out....no matter her state of undress :)
