Family Night

Since we got married, Kevin and I have tried to have "Family Night" (or Family Home Evening) every Monday nights. We had Family Night when I lived at home, complete with a song, prayer, lesson, activity and treat. Kevin and I are trying to continue the tradition we had in both our homes. It's obviously quite a bit different without kids, but we are having fun. We usually forgo the song and one of us teaches a short lesson. Patriarchal blessings, The Proclamation on the Family and Budgeting are topics we've tried to cover thus far. Our favorite part is the activity and treat; sometimes we combine them like we did this week!

Homemade Root Beer! Yum!

Get out of my dreams (and into my car)...

Here's our first major purchase together:

Isn't she beautiful? As much as we loved the '98 Grand Am (Thanks, Grandma!) We REALLY love our '03 Toyota Camry (Seriously, thanks Grandma!). The dealer guy was really nice to us and it was fun picking out the car together. Even though it was such a huge decision it was a great experience. Favorite moment from the day was while Sarah was in the front seat during the test drive: Quin (dealer guy): Do you always drive like this? Sarah: Drive like what....? Quin: You know, conservative, slower. Sarah: Oh, yeah. That. Yeah.... Kevin's new nickname for me is "My Little Featherfoot". (Incidentally that is also my Indian name)

So if any of my Utah friends are looking for a car, be sure to visit our friend Quin at Brent Brown Toyota!

Congratulations, Brittany!!

Yet another wedding tradition came true! My good friend and bridesmaid Brittany caught the bouquet at my wedding. About a month later, she got engaged!! I haven't met the lucky guy yet but I know they'll be so happy together. And since I started dating Kevin after I caught Emma's bouqet, the tradition continues.

Congratulations, Britt and Bryan, we are so happy for you!!

September 7, 2007

I know you've all been patiently waiting so here's a few while I'm still sorting through all of the rest!

Coming out of the St. Louis Temple.

My little sister Katie and little sister-in-law Ashley.

Me and some of my bridesmaids: Britt, Katie, Claire and Emma.

Me and one of my husbands (ha ha ha).

Loved my veil even if it did kind of get in the way and definitely got kicked up in the wind!

Six adorable flower girls: my stepcousin Sabrina, Kevin's niece Alexis, my redhaired cousins Abbey and Mae (they're sisters) and cousins Miranda and little Emma.

Dad and I before he walked me down the aisle.

The renovated greenhouse where we had the ring ceremony and reception. This greenhouse was the first greenhouse west of the Mississippi (supposedly).

The Ring Ceremony. This was performed by Jonathan Roberts, a family friend. Jonathan was the missionary that baptized my grandfather, and essentially, brought my family the gospel.

Guess you'll have to wait for the rest!!
