The last two CRAZY months!!!!

I've had a lot going on the past two months. Two of my cute sisters got married, so that means that I have two new brothers.
Terra married Daniel and Stephanie married Steve.

Sorry Terra I didn't have my camera at your wedding...
it got misplaced and this was the only one
I could find with just you two. ; D
Both ceremonies went really well and were a lot of fun. We had the family involved right up until the day of on both. It was super busy but everything turned out in the and and both were amazingly beautiful. I was even able to make Stephanie's wedding cake.

I got to be a room mom for Chase's Valentine party at school. That was a lot of fun. Chase and his classmates were so excited to hand out cards and candy to each other. It's funny to look back at what we all acted like at one time. They got to play games - like Mailman, Mailman (like Button, Button but they had a paper heart that was the "Mail" and the one who was "it" was the Mailman. They each had a turn being the Mailman and hiding the Mail.

This is before during and after the Valentine pass out. As you can tell they had a ton of fun.

We've had a lot of snow on and off the last little bit. During one of the big storms Scott took the kids out and played in the snow. They made a giant snowball and a hill to slide down. They were all bundled up and reminded me of the kid on "A Christmas Story". Alissa didn't get to stay out with the big kids so I took a picture with her snow hat on anyway.

Then I ended up with an infection that put me in the hospital for two nights. I wad dehydrated and had to have an IV and antibiotics pumped into me. It wasn't bad as far as hospital stays go but I don't want to do that again. ; ( I'm glad that I have the husband that I do because he stayed home with the kids and took care of them and the house while I was up there.

While I was in the hospital Austin fell and hit the side of her head on our computer desk. She ended up with her first Shiner. She was tough though. I think dad had a harder time with it than she did.

The first weekend in March was super busy. First we went to the Draper Temple Open House. I got enough tickets for my whole family and Scott's. There were almost 50 of us all together. Scott's mom and two sisters were up from Cali and came too. That was a neat experience to be able to take my kids through the temple and show them what was in there. I think their favorite room was the Celestial Room. They kept looking up at the chandelier. Gavin said "It is even bigger than grandpa!" They were amazed at everything. Austin keeps saying "I'm getting married in the temple." It was a lot of fun. The next day was Alissa's blessing so we had all the family there for that as well. It is nice to see so much love and support. I also had to talk in Sacrament Meeting. Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! The new Young Women's presidency had to talk on the 5th article of faith. (Oh ya, I got put in as the new YW President the first part of Feb.) I did ok but I don't like giving talks. After church we went over to my mom's for dinner. We took some 4 generation pictures. It is cool to be able to do that. I only knew 1 of my great grandparents and think it will be cool for my kids to see pictures of them with theirs.

Take a look at her Grandma Bodily crocheted it. It is so pretty!!
Thank you Grandma!!!

I had no idea you did wedding cakes! Very professional looking - I'm totally impressed. Do you make them often?

chelsea said...

I've done about 10 cakes...mostly for family and friends but a few for others as well. They are fun to do and fun to see how different every bride is.
