Nate & Amber's Visit

Last weekend we were treated to a visit from my "little" brother & his sweet girlfriend, Amber. It was a lot of fun, I mean a super lot of fun! We played a whole lot of Super Mario Brothers on the Wii, and laughed so hard so much! I bought some Jones' Cream Soda, which I don't usually drink anything but water and milk, so I was on a major sugar rush and laughed until I cried... so fun! I was disappointed that I forgot my camera when we took Amber to our local ghost town, Grafton. It really is a neat place, I think! Then we took them shooting. I was impressed by Nate's marksmanship, but even more impressed when Amber agreed to shooting the 270. I don't like those big guns, I stick to the little handguns! Afterwards we drove up to Toquerville Falls. That is such a pretty place, I love that we have a waterfall in our backyard :) They thought it was beautiful too, and worth the very slow and very bumpy drive to get there!

New Year's Eve

We had a lot of fun this New Year's Eve! We went to our neighbor's house and played Bunco until midnight! It was a lot of fun! It's fun to learn more about your neighbor's... one's overly competitive and her hubby's just about the same, and another hates to have his picture taken so I had fun trying to capture him in the moment. The kiddos had a lot of fun together while the adults played. They had their own games and watched movies, but they did get tired, one didn't even make it. Gary ended up being Todd's permanent buddy & loved the Bunco game. Liv & Raelee played until the last minute, they were too cute! It was a great time & I hope we get to do it again next year if not sooner!!
