Rough Couple Of Weeks

So if the whirlwind trip to Seattle wasn't stressful enough, it turned out the week between the wedding and the CA reception was just as crazy. Both Chris and I had at least two to three midterms, I caught a nasty intestinal virus (with bad nausea) and ended up paying a midnight visit to the ER. (It wasn't a big deal, they just shot me up with morphine and sent me home.) Then there were some last minute changes to traveling so instead of driving we flew to CA which turned out to be a good thing! Instead of relaxing in CA we ended up helping with the reception and catching a cold from my lil' bro right when we both recovered from last week's illnesses. We also had to deal with some high strung people which made it all the more stressful.

The good side was, Chris and I were well enough to enjoy ourselves silly at the reception. We were the only few people dancing all night. The reception was beautiful and Jon and Aubrey were happy. Finally, we got to see family and Eric and Sharn came down for a couple a days for Thanksgiving! (Sorry Eric and Sharn that I was sleepy/sleeping most of the time!)

So now we're back at home. I'm recovering starting with thirteen hours worth of sleep last night. (I hadn't had the chance to really rest till then.) Our kittens are happy to see us and I think we're finally on the road to recovering/catching up. Chris and I think we need a vacation from our vacations. The last two were more stressful than just staying at home!

Jon & Aubrey

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Jon and Aubrey Howe were married at the Seattle Washington Temple Nov. 10 2007.
The parents on both sides were elated! (Sorry! Jon had his eyes closed on this pic!)
Here are the bridesmaids and flower girl with the happy couple.
Aubrey is struttin' her stuff!
Here is the sibling trio. They told us to act "natural" we didn't want to ruin the picture and be our natural goofy selves so we went for the "daydreaming" look. Jeff was the best man and I was a bridesmaid.
Luckily it wasn't raining (It did drizzle off and on). However, it was still only 50 degrees with a cold wind and for pics we had to go without coats for most of the two hours! Everyone toughed it out, including Aubrey's adorable little sister here.
The reception was at the Clise Mansion. It was a really beautiful and the food was great!
The cake was lovely.
It really was a whirlwind trip! Jeff, Chris and I flew into Washington late Friday night but had to get to the temple early the next morning. It was basically the wedding, reception and a dinner with the White's all day until almost midnight. We then had an early flight the next morning and finally drove home! We were so happy but at the same time EXHAUSTED!! (My muscles are sore!) Aw well, here's to the California reception starting next weekend! We'll be sure to update the blog then too!! We are so happy that Aubrey is now in the family. The White's are very nice people! It's funny that two out of the three Howe kids ended up marrying people from the same place in Washington!

NINJA CATZ!!!!....and Halloween.

So this Halloween Chris and I were disappointed to find out that we were the only ones dressed up in our classes! But luckily for me EVERYONE was dressed up at work! We had a handful of trick or treaters at night but our cats had the best costumes we think.


The ensemble


Chris made these awesome Samurai Japanese headbands for them. They have their names and 'ninja' written besides the rising sun. They only wore them for a minute or so but still gave us ample amounts of amusement!! OSH!!!
