It has been a good month so far. We've had three reasons to celebrate.
#1 Our friend, Chris, had his 40th birthday.
His wife, Tiffany, asked us to dress in our
very best old people clothes to celebrate with the old man.
We thought we looked pretty good.
But Nicolle nailed it!
Tiffany's ensemble was pretty sweet, too.
So fun to celebrate with friends.
After dinner and cake,
we went cosmic bowling.
Tiffany and I got more than a few looks over our sweet polyester pants.
Or maybe they were just admiring our awesome bowling skills.
(We both scored under 70. Ouch.)
#2 Going to the temple with Kitty
Our good friend, Kitty, went to the temple for the first time this month,
exactly one year after her baptism. Exciting!
Andrew was sweet to stay home with the kids and let me
share this special day with Reggie, Evelyn, Kitty, Toni, and Connie.
#3 Andrew's great annual review at work
It has been a pretty crazy year for Andrew's job. One of his bosses (who was great!) left the company, as well as several of his co-workers, while one was out on maternity leave. He had to pick up a lot of slack there. Plus, they just restructured the functions of HR, so he has had to adjust to all of those changes.
But he has done so with flying colors!
And his new boss recognized it with a great annual review.
We had this banner waiting for him when he came home from work.
And Whit picked him a bouquet of "flowers."
Some of my favorite parts of the banner:
and wrote this herself.
We treated him to Japanese at Little Tokyo.
because they give us warm towels while we're waiting
for our house appetizers.
She made a puppy dog out of hers!
So grateful for excuses to celebrate.
