O Frabjous Day! Callooh! Callay!

This weekend was filled to the brim with good things! A quick run down.

Friday- I went to TOFW (Time Out For Women) with my sweet friend Heather and her family. My Mom and 2nd Mother Pam were also there and I was able to sit through one of the classes. We heard from some great people Sheri Dew, Tom Smith, Virgina H. Pierce and a few others. That evening was a concert with Hilary Weeks. I didn't stay the entire concert because being an old person I was tired.
Saturday- Started very rough because I was supposed to be at the Temple for a very important day. Sarah May was being Sealed to two of my favorite people, Marissa & John, but when my alarm was accidentally shut off I woke up late and missed it. I was heartbroken but since I was taking pictures after wards I made it just in time to do so. It was an honor to be there even just for the pictures and the breakfast after. I love you Marissa, John and Sarah, Congrats to your sweet family!

After the rough beginning the rest of the day was actually wonderful, after finishing breakfast with the the newly sealed family I went home to my family and we spent the afternoon working on the condo. There were little repairs that needed to be done and then we all went to Subway as a family, I love little things like that, just being with each other. That night we picked Jimmy's sister Sara up from the hotel she was staying at and she came over to hang out. We rented movies and just chatted for several hours. It was fun to see her and she was sooo sweet with the kids, Grace was so excited to have her Aunt play with her.

Sunday- We got up and ready and headed to Baby Sarah's blessing, it was wonderful to be there. After church we went to Marissa and Johns for lunch, which was awesome!! The kids all played and the adults talked and watched the football game GO BRONCOS!!!

We left their house and headed to my parents house to see my sister Janna and nephew Ethan before they headed back to Arizona. I love my sisters, we are all spread out but it feels great when we can be together.
Then we came home and did some more odds and ends around the house. Jimmy was really great to help me so much, he did all the little projects this weekend that I had not been able to get to.

I met Hilary Weeks a few months ago and totally thought of you. She is one of my favorite artists and I still remember sitting at the piano at your house singing you remember that? Forever ago I know.

Wow, busy weekend! Mine felt much of the same. I completely agree, I love the little family time moments. Jess' cousins were in town and stayed with us. We stayed up two nights in a row just talking and playing games.

That is to bad you missed the sealing, but at least you got to see Sarah in that gorgeous dress. It is not fun to finally get around to fixing things right before you move!
