Last Friday Brodie was married to Lindsay Freeman, his high school sweatheart, in the Mesa Temple. We are so excited for them and so happy to add Lindsay to our family.

Bienvenida Arlene! A few days before the wedding Carlos' mom arrived from Venezuela! We are so happy she is finally here and have been loving the great company, help, and wonderful cooking! The kids have had so much fun getting better acquainted with their abuela.

Congratulation Melissa and Brian!

It was so fun to walk around BYU, except for the fact that is was freezing! The kids loved visiting the Bean Museum that had every kind of stuffed animal you could think of. It was like a miniature zoo but without all the walking and heat, and the animals were dead. Oddly enough we kept finding ourselves saying. "Look! Just like at Grandpa's house."

Besides seeing his best friend Johnny and hanging out with family, Nicholas LOVED playing with Roslynn, Melissa's dog. He had been holding on to this one stick he found weeks ago and telling me everyday before we came that he wanted to take that stick to Utah to play fetch with Roslynn.

Here is everybody after the graduation. That night at dinner I commented how it was 4 years ago that Melissa told us they were moving to Utah because she wanted to finish her degree. They planned for Brian to graduate at the same time with his MBA. She told me also she hoped to be pregnant by the time she graduated. Fast forward four years and they made it! Two degrees, a great job, and a baby on the way. Congratulations guys- we love you!

Friends Forever!

Last weekend we went to Utah to my sister and brother-in-law's graduations from BYU. (GO COUGARS!!!) We wanted to come up early to make sure we could spend time with the Macfarlane's! Nico was so excited all week to see his best friend Johnny.

We hung out with Anna and the kids for a while at her cute house in Lehi, then thought it would be fun to go to Thanksgiving Point and go the the farm there. It was cold outside, but we thought with our light coats we would be ok. It started to snow a little on our way there, then by time time we arrived it looked like a BLIZZARD! It was so cold outside we didn't even want to get out of the car! We decided it would be better to do something inside. Luis (Gaby's husband) is a general manager at Carl's Jr and we went there the kids could play and Luis treated us to a great lunch. Thanks again Luis!

The kids loved the play area and were sad to say goodbye so soon.

This one below is just after Johnny planted a big fat one on Eliza, hence the big smile from her.

We love you guys! Come and visit soon!
