Tanners 16

We have been celebrating Tanners birthday for a week.  It started with  candy bars for breakfast, don't judge me its just once a year.  Then a Costco cake for his class at school after which Bry took him to boondocks where they mini golfed did go carts then got rained on.  Good news is they have rain checks to go another day yea way to drag it out!!!  Then we took a few of his friends in his Sunday school class to a movie pizza and more cake.

they had so much fun and Tanner felt like a rock star there we 16 of us for his 16th birthday. We did miss some of his friends, so Tanner informed us he needs anouther party so he can invite the rest of the gang, I promptly said no!

Sunday we had him ordained a priest it was so neat, Bry gave him such a neat blessing.  I truly hope that all who hears him bless the sacrament will be touched by his wanting to so bad to do so. 
We had the whole family over for dinner ok not the whole family cause the cousins think it too far to drive or people have meetings or what ever but it was great and the food was yummy (white spicy dip for tortilla chips, will post that later)  and more cake this time from Shmits  our favorite chocolate mint again our favorite and yes we ate the whole thing like the pigs we are.  so lets recap candy bars for breakfast 3 cakes pizza Mexican chips and salsa  over all a great b-day  Happy Sweet 16 Tanner!

Proms and Parties

Tanner looked so cute going to his first prom.  The PLT class asked out the special need kids.  They took them to spaghetti mamas and then the dance where they took pictures and danced.  When Tanner got out of the car he headed straight for This darling girl.  He said "You my date!"  This was said as a statement not a question and she smiled and said Yes Tanner I'll be your date.  DARLING GIRL!!!!  Austin and Brock said that Tanner danced with every girl at the dance.  He would just go up to them and say hey wana dance?  even if they had a date.  He really got around.  He had so much fun and thinks that Prom should be every weekend. 
Austin also went to prom with a darling friend of the family Ashley  she lives in Bountiful and after grabbed his corsages at 3:00 I didn't see him till Sunday at 11 when he walked into church.  I don't count the 10 min when he came home Saturday night (he spent Fri night at Brandon's Grandparents house in Kaysville) and told me a bit about the dance cause I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open.  He loves his purple bow tie and spenders that he gets to keep seeing that he no longer has to rent a tux when his choir tux will work just fine,  that saves us 100$.

Why do I have a photo of Austin and all his friends corsages?  well I always make Austins cause it cost 28$ for a three rose corsage at Harmon's.OUCH  so I just do it, they never look that professional but I put a lot of bling in it so the girls think they're cute.  I was stressing when Austin said I he needed 5 but I think I pulled it off they all looked different and I love the black one with the feathers my fav!!! the picture is diseving they are real big and heavy I was worried they would be slipping off the girls wrists all night.
Party time.... I love to have a party how ever my house is so small and with 8 families it was kinds squishy but hey we are all friends and love to cuddle up!  5 of us had to go to a trek fireside so it was eat fast and talk fast and clean up fast.  But oh so fun I just love our neighborhood!  I won a "House Party"  for Philly cream cheese and they sent me  a box of fun stuff so I did have cute take away favors.

 My cute aunt Cheryl's friend (did you get that?)  asked her to decorate for her daughters wedding.  She called me for ideas and what do you think I said?.....
I told her to make these darling easy coffee filter flowers and use them on the tables.  And that's just what she did.  I made some darling tags that she could tie on to things (branches, glass, cake stands, or sprinkled on the table) 

I also did the soup signs...10 different kinds of soup not to mention the bread and dessert bar! it turned out darling way to go Cheryl!
