It's official

I must be getting old because my baby sister is getting married! She is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Michael Tupola from Molokai, Hawaii. They are getting married in June, which means this year will be even crazier for our little family than we had thought, as they will be having the wedding and reception here in Utah and a reception in Hawaii.
Speaking of weddings, I finally applied for a business license for flower arranging (mostly for weddings, but other things, too). I've been wanting to get one for a long time- I've been working with flowers for almost 15 years and arranging for 10. I have one wedding coming up at the end of February that I'm excited for. I love doing flowers! Greg is really good about putting up with the fact that when I'm arranging he doesn't have a kitchen or a wife for a couple of days.
Otherwise, we are plugging along trying to survive another Utah winter, already looking forward to spring with all the beautiful daffodils and tulips.

Merry Christmas

We hope you all had a merry Christmas! We had a great time with both of our families. My sister is home from BYU-Hawaii and we were also able to go visit Greg's sister in Wyoming. She works at Western Wyoming Community College where they have an awesome collection of dinosaur fossils that William loved.

At home we made yummy candies...

Christmas morning...

Also, some random pictures:

Greg is on a team building a remote control boat for his senior project and they finished their prototype this past semester. It's about 4 feet long and runs great.

Monday starts a new semeter that will culminate in the greatest day of days: Greg's graduation!!!

Shopping Deals

I just wanted to share my awesome shopping trip to Rite Aid this week. I bought:
2 bags Snickers candy
1 package Huggies diapers
8 Rolls Bounty paper towels
2 16-packs Duracell batteries
The total was $45, after coupons it was $33, and I had 3 rebate checks that brought the total down to 75 cents! Plus, I qualified for $6 in rebates, so I really made $5.25!
