5th Annual St. George Winter Classic 2011

This is posted one year late, but I had to get it in before this year's trip because it was so fun!...

Every January for the last 5 years, to celebrate Klint's birthday with the friends, we've gone down to St George to stay at a condo.  We get out of the cold and into the lovely sunshine and the boys golf in their "St. George Winter Classic."  And this was the funnest year yet!  (See 2010's & 2009's trip to see the previous jacket winners.)  The girls drove down together so we could get our girl-talk in stopping, of course, at "Chinatown Restaurant" in Nephi to see Li Li.  In St. George we swam & hung out in the hot tub; the boys flew their helicopters (Sebastian had his birthday down there and the boys gave him another helicopter!); went shopping; ate great food; stayed up until 4 and 5am; and had lots of laughs!

Scott sporting his winning jacket from last year - he looks huge in the picture!

We asked the boys to bring us a Redbox movie they got "Cats & Dogs: The
Revenge of Kitty Galore we were so mad, but they thought it was hilarious!
The boys golfing -  I like this picture Bryce took

Klint FINALLY won this year's "Winter Classic"




These pictures are AWFUL!  But they made me laugh






 While the boys were golfing the girls had a fun time at D.I. picking out a blazer that the winner's wife could wear (we had a little blazer-envy!  We wanted to call it the "St George Winter Classic Wives Club").  We pulled up to "Benja Thai" (where we always go for dinner) and I saw that Klint was wearing the maroon winners' jacket so I got so excited that he finally won and so I put on the yellow blazer!  We later got it embroirdered to say "St George Winter Classic Champion's Wife."  I was so proud of Klint.  I did tell him that he better not come back if he wasn't wearing the jacket though!

At Benja That.... Must be "Winner's Glow"

We even wore our jackets to the pool!

Smith loving his daddy.  Smith likes the hot tub too.

Klint won!


We celebrated Sebatian's birthday


Beth & Tasia made the delicious tres leches cake

We blew up this awful picture from last year's trip as part of Cbass's gift

Tasia & Beth gave Klint an amazing birthday pedicure and massage


Our surprise to the boys was coming out Sunday morning in these ridiculous dresses we got at D.I.!  We might make this a tradition to always buy an ugly dress for church.  When we walked into Sacrament meeting everyone stared at us!  Ha ha ha  The tradition is that you wear the maroon blazer to church so that included me wearing that awful bright blazer it was awesome!




We even picked up white knee-high nylons to complete the ensemble!





Best friends!

The jackets once we got them embroirdered!
Leaving in the morning for this year's trip!

7th Anniversary of Our First Date

Sunday Klint and I celebrated our 7th Annivesary of our First Date (first date story here) I made him "Chicken Divan" which he loves (curry chicken & broccoli casserole) and then I read from my journal for over an hour from our first kiss, to our first date, to when I realized that I loved him.  Ahhhhhhhhhh I love Klint so much.  It just gets better and better!

Portland, Maine - Video Shoot

Our friend, John, the inventor of the Draw Collar got us hired by Jotul, a wood stove and gas fireplace company in Portland Maine, to go out there and shoot a couple web commercials at their factory.  We also shot a commercial for the Draw Collar too.

And here are pictures from our July trip:

THE most delicious freshly made chocolate covered blueberries

We ate at the floating restaurant behind us

On the boat restaurant - delicious salmon!

We were shooting right here for hours!  I was going over lines and Klint was giving me direction
