Birthday Weekend

For my birthday this year Arlan and I were able to get away for a night. My birthday morning started off with the kids making me breakfast and putting a sign and balloons up. After we hung out as a family in the morning Arlan and I headed up to our cabin in Big Bear. We went out to dinner at a nice restaurant and the b-day dessert was Creme Brule(yummy). I know i am not spelling that right oh well. After dinner we went to the movies and then back to the cabin for hot chocolate by the fire. The next morning we woke up and Arlan made his awesome omelets and then we did some shopping on the way home. It was one of my favorite birthdays... with my favorite man...doing my favorite things.... eating at a nice restaurant and shopping! I am grateful for my husband for making this such a great birthday.

Jarons Big Day

On Nov.1 , 2011 Jaron turned 8 which meant he was old enough to be baptised. His baptism was held that following Saturday. It was a special day for all of us and I am so proud of Jaron. He was pretty nervous that day and full of the spirit. We had lots of the Garcia family and Veirs family there. Also some close friends from church came. Afterward we had everyone over to our house for pizza and cake. Jaron is such a good little example to his younger siblings. We love him so much!
