What a Weekend

It's taken me a little while to get settled back into life after this super fun and crazy busy weekend!  We headed up to Salt Lake City last Wednesday so we could join my family, the Montgomerys, for Thanksgiving.  That day was a lot of fun, but also quite chaotic!  I guess I bring it upon myself... I love traditions, therefore I create and follow through with many.  Which also means that my family loves to tease me about it... why?  I'll never understand!  Anyways, so I like to make a little something to put by each plate.  this year it was little treat bags with turkeys on them!  I also like to have a little scrapbook that everyone can write down what they're grateful for.  I love to look back and read what has been written as well as see how we've all grown!  I love traditions!  After the yummy dinner at my grandmas (which was also her birthday... Happy Birthday Sweet Grandma Norma) I met up with best friend, Laura Joy!  We played Scrabble (ugh!), good thing she was there to think up words for me!  I has very pleased with the day, even though I missed my mom more than ever!

I promised my Grandma Betty that we'd do shopping together while we were up there... turned out to be the only day we could go was also Black Friday, dum dum dum!  I've NEVER been out shopping that day, I'd rather be putting up the Christmas tree & other decorations... BUT suits were 60% off and that is what Todd would be getting from his parents for his birthday, so out into the craziness we went!  But we got a lot done (Gma's was all done), and had a good time wearing ourselves out!  The day was also Todd's 29th Birthday!  I gathered some family and Todd's friends at Golden Coral so we could eat and celebrate together!  It was a lot of fun, I got to meet new people and mingle with those we've known forever, some even our whole lives!  I am so grateful for good friends and family... life would be terrible without them!  But I'm especially grateful for my husband... so I gave him a Wii!  He was surprised & excited!  I was especially okay with getting him this because he said he wanted it so he could play games with the kids!  He's such a good daddy!

We had to head home Saturday morning because we had two weddings to be to that night, one of which Todd was asked to be the best man.  So first we headed to Parowan where we joined in celebrating the wedding for Nate and Cynthia!  It was a small wedding done in her parent's living room, but I was very impressed by how tasteful it was.  The place was beautifully decorated, and the couple was very happy!  Congrats you guys!

After the dinner, ceremony, and several pictures, we loaded up our little family to head to St George so we could celebrate with Tony and Brie!  Unfortunately we missed their ceremony and were only able to get there for the tail end of the party, but I'm glad we did get there.  They are such good friends and we were especially happy that Tony had found someone!  Ahh, everyone is growing up ;)  Congrats to you guys!
