St. Patty's Day 2009 cookie fun

We had some friends over for a little St. Patrick's Day fun!
Everyone was such a good sport to wear green and we had fun making cookies... and decorating them.
Shamrocks, butterflies, and flowers etc... all delicious cookies, and some tasty green drinks.

Cheers to St. Patrick's Day!

Cruz actually hates green... so I have to say I was impressed when he was willing to get a festive shamrock t-shirt for St. Patrick's Day. Love it when people will be festive.

February Highlights

We had so much fun in February! These are some of the highlights.
  • Valentines Day: Cruz did an amazing job at surprising me. He was very thoughtful and romantic. We had a very festive breakfast, heart shaped toast, pancakes, hot chocolate (Cruz's favorite), eggs, etc. With all that festive-ness we decided that we were truly made for each other... we both had a fun time with it. We enjoyed a movie, and then that night we made sushi at home. Best valentine's day ever!
  • Antelope Island: Since Cruz hasn't lived in UT for very long, we went to see some of the sights with my Mom and Dad. We ended up going to Heber, then made our way to Antelope island.
  • Tyler's Birthday/Game Night: we celebrated Ty's birthday a little late, but had lots of fun playing games with the family.
  • Hiking the snowy trail to Stewart Falls: Cruz and I got a little spring fever, so we decided to go up the canyon. We were surprised at how much snow was still up in the canyon. We made the most of it, found a place to eat our Olive Garden leftovers, then hiked to the falls. We had a blast. We made it all the way to the falls, the trail got pretty narrow at some points, it was an adventure.
Well as you can see February for us was a BLAST. We also celebrated being married for 6 months. WOW, time goes fast. It's been a fantastic adventure so far.
