Happy Birthday/Weddings!

We had a big day yesterday. For Alexa's 1st birthday, we spent about 5 hours at the Salt Lake temple.
In the morning, Kyle (Brad's brother) and Sachi got married. It was a very nice ceremony, and they seemed very happy.

In the afternoon, Brandon (Cassi's brother) and Lauren got married. It was also a very nice ceremony, because it was the same as the first (same sealer). They looked happy too.

It was sooooo cold though! I thought I would die while we took pictures. I think Alexa cried nonstop through the second round of pictures.

We were happy to be at our brothers' weddings. They both found great girls.

Since we didn't get to celebrate Alexa's birthday yesterday, we had a little party in Idaho on Wednesday with Aunt Moff and the Mumford cousins.
Alexa got her very first cupcake. This is how it went:

She was the happiest girl ever! She ate the whole cupcake. She even wanted to eat the wrapper and got mad when I took it away.

Home For the Holidays

We packed everything up in the apartment, put it in storage, and headed home for the holidays. We headed out on Tuesday and got to Pleasant Grove, UT that night so we could be there on Wednesday when my sister Stephanie went through the temple. Congratulations Steph!! It was a nice day. All the siblings got to be there, except for Aaron, but he's having too much fun in Camaroon.

We've been in Garland for the past couple days and it's been freezing cold! We finally took Alexa outside to play in the snow (she's never experienced it before). Grandpa and Grandma Anderson helped get her all bundled up.

And no, we didn't have boots, so we used plastic bags with socks over them. It worked nicely.

We took a couple of laps around the backyard on the sled. I think Alexa liked the ride. She's fine with snow as long as she doesn't have to touch it (so, I guess she's not really fine with it).

With snow on the ground, it actually feels like Christmas is coming this year!

Here's proof that we have a monkey for a daughter. Who knows maybe she'll grow up to look like her dad (see post below). People always say she looks more like him anyway.

Well, I’ve been busy. Busy proving Darwin right.

About 2 weeks ago, I got a pix from my friend Bryan. Bryan and his wife, Coree, have 2 kids, a 2 ½ yr old named Dane, and a 1 ½ yr old named Ashlee. We used to hang out with them all the time when they lived in Mesa (they recently moved to or near Apache Junction), so Dane knew us pretty well.

Here’s where Darwin comes in. Take a look at the message and picture he sent me:

"LOL! Dane said.... 'hey, its brad.' .....LOL!"
