Puppy Love.

For Christmas, my family got a puppy! Introducing.... Brody Theodore Guttery! There was much debate over the name. Other front runners- Charlie, Max, and many others..

He is an adorable little cocker spaniel. I love him and I love that I can go see and play with him and not have to pick up his poo.

Tessa's first words when seeing the puppy. "Is it real?"

Christmas morning kisses. Brennon's mouth is bigger than his head.

Don't you just wanna squeeze him??
This is a different puppy, Piper. We puppy-sitted for our friends Rachel and Nathaniel last month for a few days. She is soooo fun and a little bit crazy. This is when she was VERY tired from playing with my sisters for 2 hours. She wouldn't even stand up.

We have concluded that we love puppies but we want to wait until we have somewhat of a yard to actually own one. Good idea?

The one crafty thing I have done.

Mel's bachlorette party invite. I figured I'de post this because it is the first and probably last time I will do something crafty. Me=no patience for cute crap like this.

I love my husband.

Half of these towels used to be white.
Now they are a lovely shade of pink.
Luckily, we got 5 million towels for our wedding, so I was able to laugh.
He's cute.

Basically a high school reunion.

So last weekend, a whole bunch of us had a bon fire way in the middle of nowhere. There were probably like 30 people there, about 80 % of which were Higley-ians. It was so much fun being able to catch up with old friends and chill (literally).
Corey and Maren=adorable.
The raging bonfire. Maren and Jo brought a whole freakin horse trailer full of christmas trees and wood pallets. It was actually quite bigger than the picture.

Katie pimpin it out. The 3 end boys just got back from their missions the last 8ish months. Arn't they cute?
Classic Eric face and cute Brye.
Fun girlies.

More fun girlies. I love them!
We also did some dancing. Go Corey, its your birthday.

My friends from high school are pretty much the bestest.

Anotha one bites the dust.

Last week, one of my best friends Melanie got married! She was my very first friend at Higley when I switched high schools my sophmore year. She is so fun and sweet and has always been such a good friend to me. We have SO many funny memories. I freakin love her!
Anyways, I got to throw her bachlorette party. It was 4 days before Christmas so I was pretty worried that nobody would be able to come. But we got a pretty good turn out and it was such a blast to see everyone! I love my girlfriends and even though we all dont get to see eachother very much, when we do it is seriously so much fun.
She's the cute red head in the middle.

My mom let me have it at her lovely house and helped me with the food and decorating. We did fondue! My favorite. It was fun trying to make everything cute.

Then on the 26th was their wedding dinner. It was beautiful and the food...amazing. Like a full christmas dinner with turkey and rolls and good. The Merchant family is basically llike the Von Trap family from the Sound of Music. With red hair. So of course there was a musical program. The cutest thing I have to say is when Ben's mom sang. It was adorable.

Here's the happy couple.

The festivities continue... the next day was the wedding and we got to be in the temple with them! It was so awesome and Brennon and I's first wedding to go to together. But you have to hear my embarrassing story. So were in the sealing and for some reason I hadn't eaten too much that morning. So were sittin there in the middle of it all, its completly silent except for the sealer and my stomach made seriously the loudest growl i've ever heard. I'm sure everyone could hear it. And this happened like 3 times. Way to ruin the moment huh.

That night was the reception. It was gorgeous. I got to be bridesmaid! My dress was like a full on long dress it was so fun! I felt like I was going to prom again.

Melanie has taught clogging since she was 13 and is an amazing dancer. Her girls that she has taught seriously worship her. They suprised her with a clogging numer of a bunch of the dances she has taught them. It was so cute. Melanie and Ben also sang a duet together that was adorable. They are gonna have some talented kids.

Congrats Mel, I love ya! Get a blog!
