A Rare Occurrence

This weekend, a rare occurrence took place: my whole family was at one place at the same time. At one time, this was not such a rare occasion, but since my younger brother joined the Air Force, having him has been a rare privilege. He came home this weekend to attend the wedding of one of his friends and he just happened to come home on a weekend where my niece was going to be in town! Since everyone was home and my niece is turning two soon, we held a birthday party for her and it was really fun to have the family together. We had our cousins and Aunt come over for dinner, cupcakes, and presents. It was a lot of fun, especially to see sweet Lucy open her presents with the help of her dad. It was a great evening and I hope that we can all get together again soon!

First Time Homeowners

This week, we can happily say that we are first time home owners! We bought a cute little two bedroom town home and we're moving in this week! Chris is very excited that we will have a garage and we will not have to fight for parking anymore! Hurray!! We got the keys to our home yesterday and we were soon walking through, trying to decide where everything was going to go. We even took our dog Gir, so that he could explore his new habitat without the stress of moving. He liked the house so much that he even christened it for us...Oops. Oh well, we had some good laughs about it. I'll post pictures once we have settled in a bit.

Last Saturday, my Parents, Brett, Chris, and I went snowshoeing up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Chris and I haven't really gone since we were engaged and it was the first time for Brett. We had a blast! I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to make it all the way up the trail (since I'm 5 months pregnant), but I made it! I was super proud of myself. When we got to the end of the trail, Brett and Chris had fun climbing up the side of the ravine and sliding down. It looked fun, but I decided to just take some pictures and video instead. The surrounding land was absolutely beautiful and we had great timing. We didn't see many people while we were hiking up, but on our way back, there were a lot of people starting out. We had a lot of fun and hopefully we'll be able to go again next winter.
