change in the weather.

{Saturday night at my Uncle Hank's 60th birthday party}

Wish I had some better photos, but instead here is my favorite quote of the night:
Anna: "Hey, where's Uncle Tom?" / Clint: "Does he have a cabin?"

{Sunday evening with the family}

Just about every Sunday, my mom cooks a delicious meal for her kids, grandkids, nieces/nephews, whoever shows up. In celebration of her & my dad's 35th anniversary (!), we decided to do all the cooking for her today. {Grilled salmon & chicken, spinach salad, zucchini and squash, potatoes, rolls, and yummy desserts}. After spending a big chunk of my day in the kitchen, I have an even better appreciation for her weekly meals. I missed my Sunday nap.

Also, I'm feeling ill and I think it might be the flu coming on... or I ate one too many of the orbios I made. Let me tell you what I think about orbios (Clint made up that term, by the way). They're delicious but deadly. I decided they might fall into the same category as those deep-fried candy bars sold at the fair (don't worry, never tried one) - the let's take something unhealthy and see how much more fattening we can make it category. It's pretty disgusting if you think about it.

Here's to a healthier next week.


  1. I hope you don't get too sick. Maybe it's just a 24 hour bug. Hopefully. I loved your orbios. I didn't know Clint made up that name. I ate too many when everyone was here and then when people left, I ate more. Next time you see me you might think I'm pregnant with a litter of orbios.

  2. I looked at your weekend pictures here and remembered how much fun is family get togethers :) thank you so much for reminding me that!

    And what a wonderful dress you are wearing!

  3. Oh my, you have an Uncle Hank. I'm kind of jealous. In fact, I might start calling all of MY uncles "Uncle Hank," just so I won't feel so left out.

    They might think it's strange.

  4. love the pictures. you guys are a good looking couple! so i am insanely jealous you have that dress, i actually tried the same one on in utah and it was to short. story of my life.

    it looks very cute on you though.

  5. Hellloo Hardisons.
