Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 46th Birthday! I always have to remember what year I was born and subtract from the current year, a ton of work, but I do it every year!

Weston and Garrett took me out for "My Choice" lunch and a movie. I choose Happy Sumo, yum, yum. We shoveled snow before we went to the restaurant. It is very pretty, but what a pain. Mike had already shoveled before he went to work. We drove 30 mph all the way to north Provo.

For the movie, I chose Twilight. Yes, my boys (21 and 18) gladly went with me. They did not complain or whine. And of course, I told them they liked it. This was the second time I had seen it and I still loved it. I was excited to talk to them about it after. Oh yeah, I had to go find the manager of the theatre because at twenty past the hour the movie had not started. It was supposed to start at the top of the hour. He apologized and said he would not play the previews which he did not.

The boys wouldn't stop after the movie for me to find a big Twilight poster to take a Kodak moment. So I don't have a picture to prove we went.

Family Christmas Party

Santa was a hit! But the white elephants were even better!

Now, there is of course a story behind these last two pictures.
Mom lost a crown a few months ago and we composed a picture to send to my sister in Puerto Rico. Mom thought I sent this picture to the whole world. That is not true. I tried, but the camera phone wouldn't let me send it to more than 25 people. Anyway, it did not get sent by me. Then of course Mom thought I was the master mind behind this white elephant framed photo of her. I only wish I were related to someone who was intelligent enough to think of doing that for a great gift idea! I sure hope this resurfaces next year. I've got my eye on it.
