26 is the new 16!

Brian and I all dressed up for Linz’s birthday party. It was so fun. We were all dressed up like we were when we were 16. I put Brian’s face in place of my date’s on my picture so it looks like we were really together back then. I can’t believe I had this hairdo for so long.
The girls. This is exactly what Ash wore to her surprise 16th birthday party. I wore this dress on a date dance, Ang in our “Come Together” competition dance outfit, Meg in her Accapella Choir dress and Kelsi sporting some hot shortalls.
Brian looks just like he did in high school. Although he said his hair was cooler than this.
Bri’s sister Emily was visiting on her way back to BYU Idaho. She was so fun to hang out with. We hate that we only see her a couple times year.
Brian and his baby sister! Not so baby anymore. I am convinced she’ll get married within a year. She’s got more dates than she knows what to do with. As you can see, she’s adorable.

  1. What a fun adventure. I am glad that you were able to go out and see the fam. Moms always come in handy when your husband has to stay home. I don\’t go anywhere big without one of them.

  3. Great job doing it so cronological and all. Looked like such a great trip. I love the whole family and you really should do a booth like that at the 4th. I just really wish we were closer to Lee and Ginger. I feel like we should be hanging out with them. I think they should move here when they are done with school. Then we could have so many great trips together! xoxox

  5. You kill me. I also had that when working at the dentist office from wearing gloves all day long and washing my hands constantly. I found that Curel lotion fragrance free worked the best and it cleared it up! Hope it gets better for you soon, it is aweful!

Its really not fair!I only have 8 weeks left so we better get together bc you have to see me at some point during my pregnancy. How sad has it really been like 7 months since Ive seen you?

  10. Foot cream, that is funny! Stuff like that is so awful but so funny. I remember when I was younger going to dance and having some kind of white stuff on my leotard. I licked it because I thought it was sugar or something. Well, it was disgusting and sour tasting. It turns out that it was deodorant. I still can\’t believe that I tasted it.I\’m glad you liked the Twilight series. I just finished the 4th book too and loved all of it. I sure wish Zach was a vampire sometimes.

  11. I only have 200 pages to go, but I\’ve been savoring it because I know it\’s the last. I read 100 pages last night and I had to force myself to stop so it wouldn\’t be over so fast. I\’m with you, now what are we going to read and look forward to???

  12. So I am also loving Dayners comments. what a good boy. He\’s such a talker. I loved the Geef and the goof. Seems like he is always good. And even if he\’s a little bad, he knows it and feels bad. And it stands out if he\’s even a little bad cause you are used to him always being so good. He will be such a good brother to Bridgi later. I think about Cade and how he was sweet like Dayne and Paige who was a little sassy like Bridge and I just think they will be so good for each other. On the book… Well you know how I felt about #4. Loved parts and really didn\’t love parts. But overall I think my standard is so high because it\’s sorta my other life. Miss you xo

  17. I have to say that Breaking Dawn is my LEAST fav. of the 4. I bought it the day it came out and still haven\’t finished…I know, what\’s wrong with me? I think I\’m finally getting to what I think is the good part though.
