Bridal Shower for Brie

The Sunday of Brie and Jason's visit, my mom and I decided to throw a bridal shower for her. Since Brie lives in San Diego, we thought this would be a great time to celebrate her engagement and upcoming nuptials. It was great to see lots of friends and family members...we played games, had some yummy food and of course had lots and lots of girl chat. Ryan and I are getting very excited to head out to San Diego for Brie and Jason's wedding in March. Drumroll please....the wedding is 4 months away! and we can't wait! It has been just wonderful having Brie and Jason here for an extended period of time, and we're so thankful for the amount of time we've gotten to spend with them.

If you've never played Partini! We HIGHLY suggest it. Partini is kind of like Cranium, wait, its exactly like Cranium with a different name, I guess either one will do! :) We had such a great time playing Partini when my parents and brie and jason visited. Not only did we enjoy the game, but I think we'll have many inside jokes for years to come. Throughout the night, a vase was broken, many comments were made about apples for bobbing for bobbing for apples, and we found out that you must use just the right amount of clay for the clay smoothie game....or else things get wierd. We highly suggest Partini!

Jason and Ryan start the game

Mom and Dad- quite a team

21st Birthday

Jared (Amberly's little brother) celebrated his 21st birthday on October 28th. And no 21st birthday is complete without a visit from big sister, Brie. Let's back up a bit...when Tyson (Amberly's oldest brother) celebrated his 21st in 2002, Brie just "happened" to walk into the place where Tyson and his friends were having his birthday dinner (it was right after Brie had moved to California). Amberly knew brie was coming home for her 21st, but it was still exciting. Now fast forward 4 years. Jared knew Brie would be coming home sometime for a visit, but was oblivious on the details.

After telling Jared that Brie and Jason and Mom and Dad would meet up with him later on in the weekend, Ryan and I decided we would take him out to dinner for his actual birthday (Wednesday) instead. But what Jared didn't know was that Brie and Jason were flying in early for his birthday and they were already at the restaurant. When we walked in to Buzzard Billy's Jared was surprised to see Brie and Jason and mom and dad sitting at the table with birthday cheer!

Happy 21st Birthday Jared! We hope you had a great night!

Cheers to 21!
