Date night!

Yesterday was a good day!! Starting it off by going to the Temple was such a great idea!! After the Temple we watched my little sister Carlye so that my parents could go to the Temple!! We took her with us shopping, first to Kurt's favorite store IKEA, then to Smiths!! When we got home Kurt taught her card tricks! She was stoked to show my dad and Cindy when they picked her up!!
After my parents picked up Carlye, Kurt and I went on a little date. It is nice to go out just the two of us, it felt like it had been forever!! We went to dinner at Famous Dave's!! It was yummmmmy!! It was nice to sit and just talk!! After dinner we came home and switched back and forth between the Jazz and the BYU basketball games!! I love it when he starts yelling at the tv!! Overall yesterday was a fantastic day!
I hope Kurt understands how much I love him!! He is truly the BEST!!

Temple day

Today we decided it had been long enough since we had been to the temple cause we have been slacking. We went to the temple with a purpose today which makes it just that much better. When we were finished the guy that was sitting next to me in our session said something that I loved. He said "the only place and the world and heaven meets up!"

Another vinyl quote!

When we were at the vinyl store buying the vinyl tree we saw this quote and loved it but did not initially buy it! After a while we decided that we NEEDED it! We have been looking for something to put above the tv for a long time but just could not decide what to get! We both think the quote fits us perfectly! It says;
" may this home be blessed the laughter of children, the warmth of a close family, hope for the future, and fond memories of the past."

Kimberly and Jason were working today and we had the day off so we are watching two of the cutesy boys in the world! So far we have had fun shopping, dancing and singing to music! Now Alex is asleep and dj is laying down trying to fall asleep. We love spending time with them and love that they are family.

Birthdays and Derbys

Today we had a great day! We slept in a bit which was nice cause I went to help my brother move lumber to his basement and did not get home until about midnight and Shaileen went to dinner after I left with her dad and sister and got home late too! Kimberly and Jason invited us to go to the demolition derby in Ogden Utah which was a fundraiser for the officers that were injured and killed this past week in the line of duty! You got to love some good ol' fashion Derbys! It is also my moms "29th" birthday :)! She is the best mom ever! We are so lucky to have her in our lives. To celebrate the adults got together and went out to dinner at Texas roadhouse and then went back to my brothers house to spend time together and play some games!

Finished vinyl tree!

We decided to put up the vinyl tree tonight and boy are we happy with how it turned out! At first I was thinking that it would look better without the orange flowers on it but Shaileen said we should do it. Good thing I trusted her because it looks so much better with the flowers. The chair next to it looks great too I think. Let us know what you think! We are so excited when we are chosen one day to be parents! A crib and changing table will look awesome in there!

Vinyl tree for bedroom

So today we had a great day! We woke up and got some laundry done! It has been quite a while since we have done any laundry. We decided we really just wanted to get out of the house so we drove out to south towne mall and went to a vinyl store because we have been looking for a tree to put on the wall. WE FOUND IT! It is prefect. The branches are black, why Shaileen calls the tear drops are gray, and the flower things are orange. It
Is awesome! Then we went to our favorite store. IKEA... We bought some little things cause we are wanting to refinish the upstairs bathroom soon hopefully. Blue tile just is not cutting it anymore :) so, if anyone knows someone that is good at tiling let us know! I need to start getting pictures huh? Lol! Thanks for reading our blog, we love it!

Grandpa Earls Funeral Service

I am so grateful for the wonderful service that was done for my grandpa on Tuesday 1/3/12. The service was wonderful and so many wonderful things were said about my grandpa! Shaileen and I were asked to sing How Great Thou Art. We were doing real well and I even looked at my Grandma and she was smiling as big as can be. Then both Shaileen and I looked at my Dad at the exact same time and we both started crying. It made me think of how lucky I am to have the parents I do and how grateful I am as well. It made me feel a sliver of what my mom is going through this week.

There were apples everywhere because everyone called him Grandpa Apple!

Grandma saying her goodbyes.

The Pallbearers

Uncle Tom and Grandma

I think it was so cool to be able to see genuine smiles on my Mom's and Grandma's faces. On of my favorite photos of the day

Bret and I showing off our skinny ties. Grandpa was known for his skinny ties and so each one of us wore one in his honor. That is one thing I will certainly cherish forever!

It is very seldom that we get pictures together because I am always holding the camera! I love it!

Shaileen and Grandma

Pam putting flowers in Terry's grave

Grandma as Taps was being played...

I have to give a special THANK YOU to the Honor Guard of the Air Force. They did a wonderful job. They certainly made the service what it was.

Everyone got balloons to let go in the air. Grandma was told to let her go first.

This is easily my favorite photo of the day. This is my uncles grave that passed away at 6 years old. I just wonder what was going through my Grandma's head. I am sure she is thinking of Grandpa and Terry just reuniting again and can't wait to do the same with them.
