This year Nate convinced the Gailey (Moyes, Zilles) clan to all do a fantasy football league. Tonight was the draft. Our league name (is that the right term?) is The Little Green Man. Apparently its a Gailey inside joke about some little toy that went missing when the  siblings were all younger. And we decided that each of us would be a sitcom character.

And the teams are...

Danny Tanner (Full House)
Angela Bower (Who's the Boss)
Arnold-(Diff'rent Strokes)
Alf (Alf)
Mr. Belvedere (Mr. Belvedere)
Gilligan (Gilligan's Island)
Kelly Kapowski (Saved By The Bell)
Si Robertson (Duck Dynasty)
Rudy Huxtable (The Cosby Show)
Liv Rooney (Liv and Maddie)
Dwight Shrute (The Office)
Lemon Breeland (Hart of Dixie)

Today we had the blessing of touring the newly re-done Ogden Temple. Although both kids had meltdowns, it was still nice to take them through with us :) It is so pretty and I am excited to have a closer temple. We are so lucky to have so many temples here in Utah, really we have several that aren't very far, but it will be nice to be able to go to the temple I first went through...

And now...

We got to have another date night this week, it was so fun!

Nate took us to bajio (yum!) and then mini golfing.

After dinner and mini golfing, we went back to bajio for the dessert we payed for earlier. (We were too full to eat it then and it would have melted if we took it to go.) We got an ice cream chimichanga and it was sooo good! Although, their plastic knives weren't strong enough to cut through it and the knive broke for Nate. I laughed so hard, then Nate threw the broken knife in my water! Hahaha, how rude!

A week and a half ago I had the honor of throwing one of my dear friends a bridal shower.

(Sister) Jenny Hansen will always hold a special place in my heart.

I was introduced to her as one of the Sister Missionaries that would be teaching me when I decided it was time to take the missionary discussions.

She taught me for about a month, all the way up to my baptism.

She finished her mission shortly after, and we reconnected once she got home to Ogden, Utah.

We visited eachother several times, including a crazy fun trip to Mexico together!

A couple of years after my baptism when I decided I wanted to move to Utah, she came to AZ, helped me pack up my life, and drove along back up to Utah with me.

She introduced me into her world in Utah.

She was by my side my first time through the Temple.

She was there at my wedding.

She photographed Landons birth.

She photographed Cambria's birth.

And now, it is her turn to marry her eternal companion and I couldn't be more excited for her!

We had a great night with good food and great friends and family of hers. I'm so happy I could do this for her with everything she has done for me over the years. She is truly an amazing person.

And today was the day. They were sealed for eternity! So happy I was able to be there to witness this special day.

Ps- I also had the privilege of making (700) chocolates for their beautiful reception...
