Tyler was sustained and set apart as the Elder's Quorum (EQ) President. Here is a picture of him with his counselors (Jon & Scott), one of our family, and a random picture of Anna:I've decided that I'm going to begin the SBD tomorrow. It's been a long time coming and I'm eager to be eating healthy again plus exercising, too. It seems that this time of year always motivates me to begin anew -just weeks before my birthday. So, we had an early birthday party tonight where I could have a homemade (read: high carb) meal of chicken enchiladas, homemade refried beans, corn, spanish rice and my birthday cake: warm homemade pineapple upside-down cake with vanilla ice cream. I even made some ebelskivers, just for the fun of it! To help me celebrate - Sarah and her family happily joined us for the meal and a fun game of Taboo. Here are the pictures:
No, I won't be 65 this year - these were the only candles we could find. However, if you multiply 5 times 6, that's how old I'll be on September 1st. Ugh. I'll be THIRTY. *heavy sigh* Thank goodness I have such great friends to help lessen the pain associated with this milestone.
In other news, I'm about 200 pages away from finishing BREAKING DAWN. As soon as I'm done, I'll want to discuss it with everyone - so get ready!
Tyler & I have been feeling lately how quickly Anna is growing up. We had decided to get rid of our bath towels (about 7 years old...needing to be replaced...) and when we talked about this - Tyler suggested doing Anna's bathroom in a PRINCESS style. He's such a sweet daddy to his little girl. Plus we bought a PRINCESS comforter set for the double bed which we're moving into her room soon (can't be soon enough!) and then everything will be so princess. It's fun doing things that make your child so happy. She didn't know we were going to buy these items - so it was fun seeing her reaction. I'm so blessed to have my sweet Anna. She is so precious.
