Having fun with Dena

Shaun and I went to get CPR certified on Tuesday night. I had planned on going with a couple of girls from the ward, so Shaun was going to have a daddy daughter night with Anna. 45 mins before I had to leave to go to my class, Shaun decided he wanted to come too. So Anna went to play with her cousins and Great Aunt Dena. We met them at Cafe Rio, where she ate a quesidilla, then went home with them to play. Dena took some pictures of her, so I thought I'd steel some of them since I'm not to good at getting out the camera.

Wednesday, February 27, 2008 Costa Rica!

I just thought I'd post a picture of my baby brother Patrick. He is serving his mission in San Jose, Costa Rica. He left for the MTC in October and arrived in Costa Rica December 26. He just had his first baptism and we are so excited for him. Keep'em coming!

Happy Valentines!

This year was the girl's year to make plan's for valentine's day. Since going out to eat with a group of 10 would be CrAzY on valentines, we thought we would make a nice dinner. Actually Toni did most of the work. But we all brought something to contribute. The girls met up at Whipperman's at 6:00 so we could get all dressed up. We had decided to make it a little corny and wear our wedding dresses.

Surprisingly, after 5 years for Whitney and myself, we still fit, but it was a tight fit for me. The guys were told to dress in their suits and show up at 7:00. They weren't too happy about the suit thing, but they wanted us to plan this year. We'll see what they come up with next year.

For dinner we had shrimp to start off with, followed by steak and baked potatoes, and a lime dessert to finish it off. Unfortunately, I had been feeling sick and throwing up all day so I just watched everyone else eat. After dinner we took cheesy prom pictures with a lovely backdrop so we could remember our fun night.

Ian & Loni

Shaun, Mandy & Anna
Anna wasn't feeling well either, so we had to cancel the babysitter and bring her with us. She had just thrown up all over her clothes that is why she is in just an undershirt. But we loved having her with us, she is our little valentine!

Ronnie & Lisa

Scott & Toni

Kip & Emily

As soon as dinner and pictures were done, the girls were out of their dresses and into something we could breathe in. We finished the night off by playing the Newlywed game. Shaun and I won, yay! Our prize was a $20 gift certificate to Fratelli and chocolate. We had a great night (besides the fact that Anna and I didn't feel so great).

Friday, February 1, 2008 they ever end?

We have been living in our home for 3 1/2 years now. It has been a lot of fun and a lot of work fixing up a home. Since we had Anna, just over a year ago, we haven't done anything to the inside of the house. But I have been saving my money and I am ready to fix up my laundry room. Yay! Since it's so yucky, I never bother to even clean it. So here is a before picture and as soon as it's done I'll post the after picture. Hopefully this spring we will be able to redo our bathrooms and start on the back yard. So it looks like we have lots of projects in our future. Good thing Shaun is an excellent handy man!
