Im super excited to announce that i am FINALLY going to watch the Star Wars movies

We had some friends over, the Hoyos family and the King family, for ice cream and games yesterday and somewhere during the night, it was mentioned that Jody had never watched Star Wars! I quickly chimed in that i have never seen them either! We all decided to start having a Star Wars night for FHE on Monday nights. Tonight we had our 1st movie night! It was SO much fun! We hosted it our house and had some treats and will rotate between us 3 couples! Im SO excited for the second one! We are watching them from the beginning. YAY for Star Wars!

And here are the Kiddos, running a muck!!
Ryan's face is hilarious!
  Lucy is 23 months. Pax is 20 months. Ryan is 17 months.

My 1st Ward Activity as Chair!

I was called, because i bribed the bishopric, to be the Activities Chair in our Student/Married ward! So for our 1st activity, i wanted to get to know the couples. I put together a Newlywed game that worked with more then just the typical 4 couples. I was so nervous about it but it turned out SO great. Marc and I put table numbers on the table, had seating assignments so every couple was across from each other, and had mediators at each table to keep track of scores and to make sure there was no cheating! Yes, i said it CHEATING! We played a Newlywed game in our previous ward (not organized at all) and it was awful and full of cheaters! So this made it impossible to cheat! YAY! I also had a huge dessert bar and i got 2, 3 gallon tubs of ice cream from the BYU Creamery. It was awesome and we have SO much ice cream leftover. Thanks to everyone who came and to my activities crew!

I LOVE this calling!

Paxton's 1st Ice Cream Cone

 Today, Paxton enjoyed his 1st ice cream cone. Marc likes vanilla and hates chocolate and I like chocolate and hate vanilla so when we had to choose which kind to get Paxton, we both said our each favorite to each other and were confused for a minute. 
Then the sweet, eavesdropping cashier guy said, "We have swirl" PERFECT! Give him both!
