A Few Wedding Pics

We took our camera, but forgot to get it out for most of the trip. So I just have a few random snapshots to share for now. It was such a beautiful wedding- Sam and Jenna couldn't have looked happier. I can honestly say it was one of the few weddings of all that I have attended where the bride and groom's love for each other filled the entire room. It was such a joy to witness. I'm so SO happy for them!

This is the only picture I have of Jenna's face- it's a weird shot, but isn't she beautiful?
Sam and Ellie
(notice the mark on her nose and above the left eyebrow? She totally biffed it into the fireplace dancing to Michael Jackson four days before the wedding... cool....)

Brook & James
(Jenna's brother and consequently, Brook's new love interest- when asked if they were a couple, Brook said "I am not playing games"... where does she get this stuff???)

In the car right after the luncheon
Funny crazy side story: When I was at LDSBC in 2001-2002, my friend Jo and I had a favorite bishopric counselor, Brother Norton. Just so happens that his daughter is Jenna's best friend and they were at the wedding and luncheon and reception! It was good to see him again, and totally crazy that I'd run into him in that situation!
That's all I've got! I'll probably steal some from Jenna's blog when they post pics after returning from their honeymoon :)

Bad News, Good News

According to a three year old:

Dad, you wanna hear the bad news?
Sure Brook, what's the bad news?
Burning your face, stuck in a tree, high in a building, and shellfish.
Wow, that is bad news.
Wanna hear the good news?
Yeah Brook, tell me the good news.
Not sucking your thumb.

Apparently our attempts to get her to stop sucking her thumb are going well. Or she thinks all of that will happen to her if she sucks it. Oh well, if it works....what can ya do?

Cuz I Had the Time of My Life

Wow- isn't it fun to run away from reality and spend the weekend with one of your best friends and do absolutely nothing responsible the entire time?!?!?! No? Just me? Well anyway, it was fantastic. Love you Sare!!! THanks so much for the visit! I feel totally rejuvenated!!!

Oh, and sorry for no pics- we totally didn't take any. We're losers. Or just past the stage of photographing the events of our lives.

So you might be confused since today is actually Tuesday, but remember THIS GIRL?

Yeah, she is pretty much totally awesome. The cat's meow. All that and a bag of chips.

Last Ski of the Season

Or should I say first?...

Okay, so it was Brook's second, Ben's umpteenth, and Stacy, Ellie, and my first. Of course I forgot to get a picture with Stacy- boo. I do have video though- it was her very VERY first time skiing- she did fantastic! I decided this year that next year I will get a season pass and go up at least 3 times a month so that I can master skiing once and for all. The bunny hill is getting pretty old after 4 seasons of skiing it... yes I am that pathetic.

Brook got the ski setup from Grandpa & Grandma Douglass for Christmas Learnin the ropes (Wait look! There's Stacy in the background!!! Purple coat, green pants. Way to go Stace!! You're a champion!!!!!) My cute little butterball- isn't she seriously adorable? She got to ride the chair lift up the bunny hill twice and ski down in arms- once with Grandma and once with Grandpa. She smiled and giggled the whole time and kept reaching for the hill. She is going to be a natural! Next year Ellie!
