Annual Night Downtown

Every year we stay downtown for a night with my family. We picked up my sister Heather and her family from the airport, then the party started.

We got to meet Luke from Texas!

Out to lunch and dinner with the new Muppets movie in between

the girls

Cute little girls. We stayed in a hotel. which was interesting having all 5 of us in one room. We all woke up to Sam singing jingle bells. It made me laugh.

Breakfast in the morning, then off to Danny's basketball game.

Tim and Amy are engaged!!!

My brother Tim proposed to his girlfriend on Saturday night! We were all so happy. Tim told us to plan a surprise party with Amy for his birthday. So when she took him to a friends house for his "surprise party" it turned out to be decorated for her. There were flowers everywhere with lanterns hanging from the ceilings. I made a video of them and we watched it at my parents house afterwards.

Such a cute couple.

She had no idea that her mom was waiting at my parents house for her afterwards.

Amy is a Delta Gamma (along with my sisters and I). Woo hoo! Yesterday she had her candle passing. It is so fun. All of your sorority sister stand in a circle and you pass the candle around while singing a song. The candle has the engagement ring on it of the girl who just got engaged. Once the candle comes to the girl who is engaged, she blows it out and everyone freaks out because it is a surprise. I went to the DG house for that. It was so fun.
Then all of the sigma chi's came and sang a song to her and each of them gave her a rose afterwards.
Then Tim and Amy each gave 10 reason why they love each other. It was so fun.
It reminded me of when Brian and I did the same thing. 9 years ago.

Congratulations you 2!

Little cutie pie

I decided that Sarah's hair needed help. So I took her to cookie cutters and we gave her a cute little bob.

She was doing so well until Sam smashed her finger.

Poor thing.

They gave her a sucker and she was much happier. How cute is she?

Pictures with Grandpa Don

Brian's Grandpa, Don, said that all he wanted for his birthday was a picture of him and the kids to send out in a christmas card. Um OK! Here are some that I took:

I was too stressed about getting the kids to smile that I waited till the last few pictures to try to get Danny to fix his squatty neck. Now I wish I would have done it sooner but oh well. At least they are all smiling. The funniest part was that Brian's grandpa was the one who had the hardest time looking at the camera. You should see the way he looks at them. He just loves them.
