Last night we had a few people over to celebrate my dear friend, Bethany's, birthday. Now we are both 27! I remember meeting Bethany. We were both in 10th ward, her having just moved in and our Bishop sent me over there to convince them to come to church and leave her old ward behind. (She was staying behind until the New Year to finish out her calling) I was hugely pregnant and she was somewhat pregnant and I pretty much barged into her house. She moved maybe 2 years later? Across town and I was sad, but happy for her new house and then we moved to where we are now. I used to walk my screaming kids over there barefoot because she only lived a few houses down. Happy Birthday Bethany!!! I don't know what it is with me and Christmas pictures. I gotta get the picture of the Christmas jammies in front of the tree, and then the Christmas church clothes in front of the tree and then the glorified picture with Santa. I still don't have my Santa picture yet, I am hoping for the ward party, and praying it is not a bust!

On Monday the 7th we had our 3rd annual Girl's Night Out exchange our favorite things at Michael's on the Lake Restaurant. Katie Roylance, Amber Jenks, me, Jenica Heslop, and Bethany Jenks. We all started meeting 3 years ago as a play group at people's houses, then the park, and as a girl's night at Shari's. We try for once a month, and it doesn't always happen, but it is so fun to just get out! Before Christmas we do get to Michael's and enjoy another evening of laughter and chatting and food and we all bring something that is our favorite to give to everyone else. Rischel Law was with us at the 1st one, but other than her it has remained the same girls. I look forward to our laughter and late nights together at Shari's!
