Random Joy

Our oldest son turned 17 on Friday. We celebrate on Saturday morning by having breakfast together at Virg's (thanks for the referral, Giffords!). It was yummy, and we did a lot of laughing. Taylor had several friends over on Friday night. If the noise level was any indication, they had a great time. They're really good kids.

Saturday afternoon, 5 of us (minus Bri, who went to Logan for the day) went to see "Extraordinary _______" with Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser. Good flick. We all celebrated that it did NOT have a 70's ending. Have you ever noticed how, in the 70's, all the movies had crappy endings?

Our youngest son turns 13 tomorrow. That means all of our children are teenagers, and I can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown by. We will probably celebrate Landon's birthday this Saturday (presents tomorrow, though). He wants to go to lunch and a movie, I think. He originally said he wanted to see The Chipmunks Squeakquel. We told him we didn't love him that much. Now I think he's leaning toward Tooth Fairy, which may not be a big improvement. :)

Did you know that for Christmas I got flatware service for 16 plus serving utinsels? It is so cool to open the drawer, find enough silverware to set an entire meal, and have them all match. Considering what so many other people DON'T have, this makes me feel bratty. It also makes me feel very happy. I can live with that.

Andrew is getting married in March, and there is a bridal shower for Carissa on Saturday. Welcome to the family, Carissa! (Jax and Jess, will we see you, maybe?)

One of my work friends has been offered a fabulous position, still with the Church. She is capable, and I think this job will be a perfect fit for her. I hope she takes it!

The sky was kinda blue today. Lovely!
