Happy 7th Birthday Colby

Last week we celebrated Colby's 7th birthday. We kicked of the weekend with a party with a few of his friends at the Cache Valley Fun Park, where they enjoyed bowling, pizza, cake and icecream and I enjoyed having someone else clean up the mess! We all had a great time as you can see in the pictures.

Then Saturday we enjoyed a quieter evening at home. Grandpa and Grandma Lindley joined us for dinner. Thenwe finished the evenign with brownie sudae's, opening presents and playing the Wii.

Holiday Hiatus

I intended to start this post with an apology....but in all honesty...I can't say that I am sorry that my blog has been neglected for the past several weeks. We have been enjoying what one might refer to as a Holiday Hiatus of sorts. We traveled to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving break and enjoyed several days of being spoiled by my Mom's hospitality and holiday goodies. (it's just not the holiday's without peanut butter fudge and chex mix). We then returned and enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing Christmas. Some of the highlights were: our 2nd annual Christmas Eve Seafood dinner. Last year we decided to celebrate Christmas Eve with Wade's parents by hosting a seafood dinner in our home. It was such a huge hit we brought it back for round two this year. Our Holiday feast included shrimp scampi, lobster tail and crab legs along with stuffed mushrooms, twice baked potatoes, vegetables and garlic cheese biscuts. Then Grandma and Grandpa Lindley joined us again Christmas morning to watch the boys open their presents and enjoy a breakfast of peach french toast.We later enjoyed a Christmas dinner of prime rib, grandma's famous shredded cream potatoes and spaghetti squash. We spent the next several days in our pj's challenging each other on the wii and games we recieved for christmas.
As with most things in life...all good things must come to an end. Tomorrow life resumes... but not without some great memories and a few extra pounds.
One regret I do have... I was enjoying 'the moments' so much... I didn't capture them on film.
