August 5, 2006

Right before Christmas we got our book and a CD of pictures back from the photographer! So here are some of our favorites of this wonderful day!!

This is our first kiss as a married couple!! Ok...maybe not the FIRST...but ONE of the first. Our first right in front of the temple doors!

These are all the family and friends that came to the temple that morning.

Some of our closest friends.

A CUTE picture of Jorge and Aaron that I just love!

Our families

Some of our favorite pictures taken on the temple grounds

Pictures at the Reception.
Yes, our cake topper was a bride and groom made of legos, thanks to Matt! It was so cute!

It's pretty obvious that I won the cake smashing!

This is my dad telling me that even though I'm married, I still have a curfew!

This was such a GREAT day, and being married to my best friend is so wonderful! My only wish is that I could wear my dress again! :)

Ya Viene La Navidad

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Hooray for Christmas!
A year ago, I struggled to get in the spirit of the season as I worked hours without end. This year is not last year. Megan and I have visited the Festival of Trees, decorated our tree, and made sugar cookies and a gingerbread house. I haven't had a full-sized tree since 2001. Odd as it may be, a well-decorated tree helps me feel happy. We have a nice selection of silver ornaments, snowmen, Santa and Mrs. Claus (from Hawaii, no less), and red bead garland. There might not be any presents under the tree, but I'm sure there will be a couple between now and Christmas morning.
Along with the season come many parties and chances to visit with friends and family. Thursday night we attended my company party and came home with a couple new movies to add to our growing collection. Friday we attended a fiesta at the church. Tonight was the gathering for Mom's side of the family. No word yet as to whether or not Meg's employer will be having a Christmas gathering. ;-) There will also be two non-holiday parties in the next two weeks. One will be for the Park City Miner football team. That will be fun. The biggest one-time festivity of the month will be in a couple of weeks when Megs finishes her degree at BYU! I am proud of her for finishing so well. This would have been an easy semester to slack on, but she has done a great job of studying and going to class.
I hope all of you are enjoying the Christmas season. Get out and serve. Drop off some cookies to a neighbor. It will make you feel great. As for those of you who don't have a neighbor, I'll send you my address--we could always use some cookies! Merry Christmas, everyone.
