Happy Anniversary!

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary! To celebrate, I made sugar cut out cookies, and then Dave and I frosted them. It was fun and a good way to finally use some of the letter and number cutters I have :-)

Here we are about to enjoy some of our creations. We look sweaty and gross because we ran after we got home from work and hadn't changed yet.

I made a bunch of heart shaped cookies to put all around the word ones. I had a good picture of the whole layout, but Blogger wouldn't let me post it turned the correct orientation. How annoying. So you can just imagine how these two racks of cookies look around the pan! Everyone at the barn was excited to see me show up with a cookie container! That's one good thing about my love of baking: having people to share it with!!

We didn't make any big plans for this year's anniversary. Next year will probably have something fun planned since it will be 5 years!! We are going to go out to a movie this weekend, so we'll have to make it an anniversary "date" :-)

Sibling Love

Molly and Dylan don't like to admit it sometimes, but they love each other! Look at the way they were laying on the couch this weekend. I'm glad I caught it on camera!

Don't they look sweet? Quite the contrast from the rough wrestling they usually like to do!

Alyssa's Fan Club

On Saturday, May 9, Dave and I drove down to the Northwest Equestrian Center with Stacy, Ting, and Dylan to watch Alyssa's XC ride. We had a fun road trip down, with a quick stop at Starbuck's for a caffeine jolt. Alyssa did great; she and Josh went clean and were 3 seconds under optimum time, so they ended the day in 3rd place! We spent the next few hours watching prelim and intermediate rides, shopping at the tack tents, and visiting.

Here's Susan, Stacy, Alyssa, Dave, Ting, and Dylan (though you can't see him) walking the course. I think Dave's yelling something, not sure what though!

Dylan especially had a great time with Ting. She loves dogs, and is great with him. He got to run around with her and get lots of pets and hugs both at the event and in the car. Look at that smile!

Here's Stacy, Alyssa, and me. Stacy and I plan on being Alyssa's grooms someday if she ever goes pro ;-)
Going to watch made me more excited for my one day event coming up this weekend! It's going to be back at NWEC, so it'll be familiar territory. Can't wait!
