I almost forgot about funny faces...

Jen and the girls put on a great show of funny faces. Here are a few of my favorites.

A couple of more pics....

I thought that maybe I should add a better picture of Gretchen and Justin, even though I do LOVE the goofy one I last posted. It was such a beautiful wedding that I should do better justice to it.

Also, I wanted to add a few pics of my nieces and brother and sister-in-law on Thanksgiving... just for fun. I love them all soooo much!

Quick Catch Up...

Since I last posted anything a few holidays have passed on by without anything... I am just too busy these days. However, I thought I would post a few pics from the past few months. I had a great Halloween and Thanksgiving and lots of fun. I hope everyone else is doing great too!

I attended the BEST Halloween party ever! It was a great time. Here is a small group shot. The games were very fun, except when I was stuck in the middle in the Sign game... I never did catch someone in the middle of a pass. I am just not that quick...

I had a fabulous Thanksgiving with my brother and sister-in-law and all the darling girls. So fun!!!

Liz and I got to help Mark in a very, very small way make his masterpiece gingerbread house by using a VERY HOT glue gun to add the rocks on the small wall supports. That was a blast--of course I burned my finger a million times, but I will have you know that I did not swear once!

I had a great birthday this year, I got to go to Gretchen and Justin's wedding. I love weddings--they are so fun and happy and this one was awesome! I am so happy for both of them.

Canning at the Preston Cannery

We went canning chicken a couple of weeks ago. It was a long day, but fun.

So You Think You Can Dance Tour

A group of us went to the So You Think You Can Dance tour last night at the E Center. They performed most of the really great numbers from the season. Even though we had seen all the dances before, there was something very cool about seeing them all performed together like that. It was also neat that three of the dancers were from Salt Lake City.

Weekend Poetry Mystery Party!

I am headed to a mystery party this weekend, so I will post on Monday if I figure it out. My character is Sherry Yujest...
Age: 23
Profession: Commedienne
I am a comedienne and an amateur poet. Born 23 years ago in a large city several hundred miles away. I am an only child and always thought that my parents were Carrie and Harry Yujest, but recently that’s changed.
Harry Yujest died when I was a teenager. About a year and a half ago, Carrie Yujest became terminally ill. She called me in and revealed that I had been adopted as an infant. Carrie knew nothing about my real mother. She told me, though, that I was always loved. After all, I was “chosen” from among the other children available for adoption.
A few weeks later, Carrie Yujest died and I hired a private investigator, Ida Nonit, to try to find out more about my birth parents.
That’s why I came to town about a year and a half ago. Ida had tracked my birth mother down and I decided to move here, to the town where my birth mother lives.

Hmmmmmm..... what do you want to bet that my secret birth mother is at the party too.... I went to one of these last year and I figured out the mystery... so wish me luck on this one!
P.S. I thought it would be funnier if my name was Shirly Yujest!
