Wow, busy weekend

So after a week of seeing this... nothing!!

We were glad to see this big white envelope from Salt Lake! It's here!!! So at almost 4pm we started to text and call everyone to come over to the house so we can open his call. I had a few things ready to go just incase it came on Friday, but I had to run the rest of the time to get everything ready to go for everyone to come over.

I'm so tired today!! But so happy and excited. Our son Dallin got his mission call! He's going to serve in Guatemala and will be learning Spanish! We love it. Two down, three more to go. It's been so emotional to do this all over again. I thought maybe it would get easier with every one, but it doesn't, it's an emotional roller coaster. It's like having a baby, after your first one you know what's coming and it's just scary. We want to just thank everyone that came to support us and want everyone to know that we appreciate so much love our way. We feel so blessed. Here's the video of his opening, enjoy!

So after all the craziness on Friday after Dallin's mission call, we woke up on Saturday to clean the house so we could have some friends over for a Destination Dinner. Our good friend Alicia put together this little shindig. Our place was Italy and had appetizers. Then we went to the Folau's for dinner and they were a Hawaii theme. The food was excellent and they did a good job setting the mood with their decorations. The last house was the Burrell's and they were Paris and had dessert for us, an awesome chocolate fountain with all kinds of naughty things to dip and an excellent end to a great night. It was a ton of fun and we were glad to be included. Thanks Alicia for organizing it!

Kris and Amber helped me get this all set up and get out appetizers ready to go for our guests. I made bruschetta, Amber brought a large assortment of cheese and crackers and Kris (Kirk) made some delicious meatballs. Good Eats!!

After a game of Italian charades, the loosing team had to sing and Opera for us...

I have to say, they did a good job!
