Wedding, Thanksgiving, and Other Loads Of Stuff

Yikes! I feel like it's been forever since my last post. We've been pretty busy lately. Last week we were able to make a quick trip to California for Thanksgiving and Scott's brother's wedding. Actually, we just got back about an hour ago and all I have to say is that Hannah was an *ANGEL* in the car today. The trip could not have gone more perfectly. Oh, and Scott drove the entire way, even though I offered to drive, because he knows that I'm not a big fan of driving. I like him. He's nice to me.

Anyway, we arrived in California last Tuesday afternoon. There are a few things that are a must every time we go to California:

1. Stop at the gas station in Boomtown, NV. For some reason we always stop at that gas station. I don't get it, but it's a must.
2. Eat trashy food until we're about to explode (unless my mom is cooking-she's pretty good about getting us some veggies). Not trashy as in gross, trashy as in extremely unhealthy, but extremely delicious. Fruits and vegetables are not often on the menu unless they are served with butter, cheese, mayo, or on an...
3. In-n-Out burger. In-n-Out is not currently in Utah County, so it is definitely a must when we go to California.
4. Get sick. Yes, for some reason we get sick every time we go to California. This time it was just a soar throat and runny nose/sneezing, but it never fails that we catch some sort of virus.
5. And finally, drive back and forth to all of our parents, grandparents, and extended families houses until we (and especially Hannah) are exhausted. I love it, though. I'm so glad that we get to see everyone when we go there.

As I mentioned earlier, we went there mostly for Scott's brother, David's, wedding. He got married the day after Thanksgiving. Scott was the best man and Hannah was a flower girl. David and Kim looked so great together. We are really happy for them! Here are a few pictures from the wedding.

We're married!

Hannah and the other flower girl were chasing each other on the dance floor at the reception. It was pretty cute.

On Thanksgiving day we had a huge feast with all of Scott's extended family. The food was delicious and it was a lot of fun. There was even a bounce house for the kids to play in. Here are Hannah and Scott in the bounce house and Hannah with her second cousin, Londyn.

And a few other things that we were able to do this week that I failed to get pictures of were going out with my BFF from high school, Stacy and her family, to breakfast and going to a Christmas parade with my dad and step-mom.

Fun week.

Good times.

Until next time my friends.

Sound like you guys had a very fun and eventful week. Hannah looks so cute in her flower girl dress.

So there are a couple sites I go to for my blog. For the background I go to
That one is really easy if you know how to add the html gadget. You just click on "Backgrounds" on the left side and it'll show you a bunch according to your specific theme.

For my pictures at the top of the blog, I go to
I love this website. It's a little harder to do than the previous, but still pretty easy. I just make the picture on the site, save them into paint and put the picture up instead of a title for our blog.
(if you don't understand how to do this, or I didn't explain it very well, just let me know and I can let you know in more detail)

The bride is beautiful. And everyone looks stunning in their wedding gear (especially lil' Hannah). But where's the pic of you? I'm sure you looked gorgeous too. How fun that they rented a bounce house. Allie could play all day in one of those things.

Looks like a beautiful wedding! Hannah's hair turned out perfect.
I am SO glad that we got to see you guys, even if it was brief. It was nice that the husbands got to be there too! :)
K, now I just need to get my butt up there to visit you!!!
I know why you didn't want me to post that picture, I was just kidding. :) But you really are gorgeous---make up or not.

Looks like it was a fun trip (minus the sickness). Everybody looked beautiful in the wedding pictures. Julia looks so pretty, and what an adorable little flower girl.
