Ellie's Blessing

While we were up in Utah for the 4th of July weekend we blessed Ellie in my parent's ward. It went very nice and Roy did a great job. Ellie looked absolutely beautiful in her dress. Unfortunately it was so hot in the chapel I am sure she was not too comfortable. After church we had a get together with family and friends to eat at my parents house. We had lots of BBQ chicken sandwiches, salads, and lots of deserts. It all came together very nicely. Thank you to everyone that helped make it happen. I took lots of pictures and couldn't decide what to post so if you are patient enough you can watch the slide show. Ellie's photo shoot in her dress are also included.

Her 1st 4th of July!

What a busy 4th of July weekend we had this year. We drove up to Utah with a car load of stuff. We are very happy we upgraded cars and no longer have the mustang. We spent Friday catching up with family and old friends. Saturday we headed up to Heber City to attend my cousins baptism. Saturday night we watched the fireworks that were shot off at the Stadium of Fire. Sunday we blessed Ellie in my parents ward. (post/pictures of that to come later) Monday the actual 4th we got up early to head down to Provo to watch the hot air balloons fill up and take off. Instead we watched them fill up and blow over with a wind burst that came through. That was more fun than watching them go up. You would have thought there was a tsunami or something. The people were screaming and running away. We came home and my dad cooked breakfast. Mmmmm. My favorite part came next. I got a nap. Yes this doesn't happen much because I like to be busy. But life caught up with me. Unfortunately I dreamed of taking care of Ellie so it was not to restful of a nap. Roy's mom had a BBQ for lunch and it was fun to show off Ellie to the family. Now to relax a little for a week before we head back to Vegas!
