This past weekend, we went to Arizona for Greg and Sarah's wedding. They got married in, Mesa Temple, and had their reception in Sarah's parents' backyard. Everything was so beautiful!!!! It was about 90 degrees outside on Saturday. It was a perfect day for a wedding. Sarah looked beautiful. Her dress was gorgeous, and my girls told me that's the kind of dress they want when they get married. Katie even told us that she is going to marry Jackson.
The reception was so much fun. Everyone had a great time. I loved that Drazen took Carlee out and danced with her. And I love that all of the cousins went on the dance floor and danced. It was so fun to see our family that we don't get to visit often because they moved so FAR AWAY from us. We loved seeing our friends that we don't get to see often because they moved SO FAR away from us. And for those of you that couldn't make it, you were missed.The food was great. The backyard was beautiful. They had a live band. And for those that know Greg and Sarah, the reception was them to a T!!! They had a rice krispies cake (Greg LOVES rice krispies), a candy bar with about 8 or 9 different types of candies with baggies next to them (the kids were loving it), and desserts they liked. Everything was perfect!!! It was THE BEST wedding!!! Greg looked so handsome. I still cant' believe that our little Greggy is married. He is Jeff's youngest brother, and I have known him since he was about 12. I still think of him that young. We are so protective of him and we think of him as one of our own kids. We are so happy for him, and that he found Sarah. She is an amazing girl, and she truly makes Greg happy!!! We love you both and we are so excited for you to start this new chapter in your lives together. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Jeff and I celebrated 14 blissful years October 6th. For our anniversary, we thought it would be fun to go somewhere. So, we packed our bags, booked our flight, and hotel room (the night before we left) and on October 9th flew to Seattle for the weekend. Neither of us had ever been there, so we thought it would be fun to go. We had so much FUN!!! We took our first cab ride ever to the hotel, and from there we walked everywhere!!!! We spent half a day Friday and ALL day Saturday, just walking and sightseeing. It was so nice, we didn't have to worry about running here or there. Friday night, we met Jeff's friend for dinner. He took us to a restaurant where we can see the whole city at night!!!! The view was amazing!!!!!!
Saturday, we got up, and walked to the Space Needle. The view from there - WOW!!!!! AMAZING!!!!!! From the Space Needle, we walked to Pike's Place, and then to Pioneer Square. Pike's Place was great. There was so much to see. I was so amazed at everything, but probably at all the FRESH CUT flowers that were SO CHEAP!!! I wanted to bring bouquets home so bad. I so wish there was a way!!!! I wish we had that here!!!! Saturday evening we went to see Couple's Retreat!!! I thought the movie was hilarious!!!!
Sunday, we walked to the bookstore and just hung out til it was time to leave. I was really sad to leave, but excited to come home and see the kiddies.
Seattle is an amazing city!!! I loved all the fall colors. It was beautiful!!!!
The trip was awesome!!! Jeffy, thank you so much for everything that you do for our family. You are amazing, and I love you so much.
