Our Weekend

Our very good friends moved to Orem this past fall. We have really missed them, David and I and the kids.

If you remember, my beloved truck (which I will be the first to admit, I have an unnatural love affair with!) got mooshed this past fall as well. I FINALLY decided that it was time to replace it rather than just fix it. I got on KSL.com and found a bunch of new-to-me Suburbans for sale, and wouldn't you know it, they were all in the Salt Lake area! This gave us just the excuse we needed to make the trip to Orem to visit the Brazier's! We got there late Friday night and were welcomed with a pizza party. What fun! It doesn't get much better than pizza with friends you haven't seen for a long time!

Saturday night Jared and Amy both had to work, so David and I took our kids and Jasmine and Micheal to the mall. (and we lived through it and actually ENJOYED the time we got to spend with them!) The kids all had money that was burning a hole in their pockets, so they went shopping. Then we went to see Coraline in 3D! Oh my gosh, can I just say what a cute movie it was! We all gave it two thumbs up!! We weren't done partying yet, so we took all SIX kids to Sizzler. (I told you we were nuts!) After we had our fill of steak and shrimp, we headed back to the Brazier's for bed.

Sunday we just lazed around and visited. It was a relaxing day. After a yummy dinner we watched movies and played the Wii. We were going to go home on Sunday, but we were having such fun that we stayed another night. We just decided to be bad parents and not make the kiddos go to school on Monday. We played a bit more, said our goodbyes, and took off for home about 5.

It was a fun weekend, and yes, I did get a new-to-me Suburban! I LOVE IT! (but I still miss my old one!)
