Happy Birthday Josh!

Josh turned 24 yesterday! We had quite the celebration for him too. We had the family come over to my mom's house for dinner and a white elephant gift exchange. To add to that we were all supposed to wear our "ugly sweaters." I think the ugliest sweater award went to Jared but there were some pretty ugly sweaters. Dinner was delicious and the gift exchange was so funny. We were all laughing until we had tears coming out of our eyes. The pictures below can describe the gifts and fun times way better than my words ever could. So Happy Birthday to Josh. We love you.

This and That

Since my Halloween post I have: seen New Moon with my mom and sisters (minus 1), saw New Moon again with Josh, had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal twice once with my dad and once with my grandparents and whole family, done a little Black Friday shopping for Christmas presents, enjoyed the nice weather with my sisters, and today said goodbye to Josh for possibly a month and a half. I need to explain the last one. We put an offer in on a house in St. George back in October but the process takes a very long time because we are waiting on the bank. So I have been told we will hear back to see if we have been approved in about two weeks. Josh is starting his job in St. George today and our house isn't ready so he was sent on his way to work and stay with friends down there while I stay here with Talon at my moms house. While I am so grateful we have these options that save us money, I wish so badly that there was a way to stay with Josh. Hopefully it will go by fast and all will go well.
In the meantime I will work on Christmas and Birthday preparations. I am going to be sending out Christmas cards this year and all my addresses are packed in a box somewhere in a storage unit so if you would like a card I would love it if you could get me your address. You can email it to me at or text it to me at 801-472-4223. Thanks everyone!

Talon will not like me someday for this but I could not resist this picture
