1/2 Way To Fifty

Well another birthday has come and gone!  I am now officially the big 25.  Crazy.  

Taylor made sure to make my birthday super special.  Special dinner, special shopping day in SLC, special new BIKE (thanks everyone not just Taylor!), special cake, and some special classic movies on blu-ray.  It was all AMAZING.  
Last Sunday we were able to get together with my family AND Taylor's family.  Thank you so much for all of the wonderful food, cakes and famous Spencer cobbler!  It was so great to spend time with our family.

Everyone pitched in and got me this sweet new ride!  I am in love with it.  I loved biking before, but my new bike makes me love it even more! 

My birthday was slightly stressful because Taylor and I were in charge of the ward party with another couple in our ward.  You might be thinking, "Meh... ward party, not a big deal!"  But our ward makes it a big deal.  We literally got told by the bishopric to make it amazing and big and grandiose! So it was stressful.  We ended up planning a talent show, it went off with out a hitch and looked great.  I am just SO glad it is over.  I won't be agreeing to do this again :)

Taylor and his buddy Dan stole the talent show with an amazing drum duet.  All the grannies were swooning like crazy and Mckel and I had to get our men out of the gym before we lost them to some hungry cougars.  Thanks for coming up Dan and Mckel.  You two are the best!
Something CRAZY happened last night.  Taylor's brother Nathan got hit by a car on his motorcycle.  When I heard the news I thought for sure he was dead, lots of motorcycle accidents end that way and I freaked.  Sometimes (ok all the time) I forget how fragile life is.  I am so grateful that Nathan wasn't critically injured.  Cuts, bruises, and a lacerated spleen will keep Nathan in the hospital until tomorrow but he should make a full recovery!  

We drove down to SLC with my amazing in-laws and were able to visit with him in the hospital.  The whole experience left me feeling extremely grateful for the wonderful people we have in our lives.  We love you all! 
What better to cheer you up after a hospital visit than a trip to In- N- Out with these fine folks.  Loved it!

SOOO...  We are taking a poll.  What should we be for Halloween??  Are we ever going to top last year?  No, we have pretty much set ourselves up for failure.  But I want to hear your ideas.  GO!
