After 10 months of making 2 mortgage payments we FINALLY sold our town home. I can't tell you what a weight this is off our shoulders. We feel so blessed that we were even able to sell in this economy. However it Probably wouldn't have taken so long if we'd been smart and hired a real estate agent from the beginning. Oh well hindsight, right? Thank you Dale Rex for selling it so quickly for us. And thank you to all our family and friends for your prayers.

10 Years and Counting...

In honor of our 10th anniversary here are 10 things I love about you.
  1. Your personality, I have a tendency to be a little high stung and get stressed easily and your personality is so chill that you always seem to mellow me out.
  2. Your have a great sense of humor. My friends are always cracking up about the crazy things you do. Like doing a little dance when you answer the door. Even though you can be pretty cheesy at times, you always keep me laughing.
  3. Your dashing good looks! Need I say more?
  4. You are such an amazing dad! I've never seen a more proud father. Gavin will never have to wonder how much his daddy loves him.
  5. You're a loyal friend! You make friends a keep them. Your friends know they can always count on you for anything.
  6. You never talk badly about other people even when those around you do. You're very nonjudgmental and I think that's why you make friends so easily. Which leads me to my next thing...
  7. You make friends easily. You can go into a room full of people you don't know and walk out with a hand full of friends.
  8. I love your competitiveness even though we can get in some serious screaming matches over board games. But it's always nice to be on you team, because we usually win.
  9. You get along so well with my family. From the first time my parents met you they loved you. You immediately fit right in. And of course all my sibling and their spouses love you too.
  10. Last but not least, I love that you love me :-)

7 Days in Michigan

Gavin's Highlights
  • Nonstop playing with Keely from dawn till dusk
  • Going down the tube slide at Rolling Hills Water Park
  • Playing with friends at the Labor Day BBQ
  • Keely's new puppy Mattie

My Highlights
  • 2 date nights where Lisa and I actually got to see our husbands
  • Girl time with my sis
  • Labor Day BBQ at Kristin's
  • Spending time with my neice and nephew (even though Ben doesn't love me as much as he should)
  • Keely's new puppy Mattie

Steve's Highlights
  • Golfing 63 holes ( I'm not kidding they golfed 63 holes in 3 days)
  • The Michigan/Utah game, even though the Utes won :-(
  • Being the favorite - Ben loved him and wouldn't give me the time of day. I don't take it personally though, it's a gender thing. Ben just doesn't like girls.
  • Keely's New puppy Mattie. Come on babe admit it!
P.S. Thank you Shauri for the pictures! They're only evidence I have that we were there. Lisa and I didn't take a single picture the entire trip.
