Happy birthday to Russ!

Well i feel like i FAILED on Russ's birthday this year. If you know me birthdays are such a BIG DEAL and I like to plan and think of good thoughtful presents and just be amazing! haha, well Russell's birthday just snuck up on me and I really did some last minute shopping. I thought I had some good ideas but I was just a little bit "off" on each gift idea. The only one I got right one (that Russ didn't take back) was the hat. I really sucked it up. But I DID get him cheesecake from the cheesecake factory! That should make up for it right?

Anyways, we spent Russell's bday at Amy and Marcus's house. He liked the ituned gift card better than anything i got him. it's like when you don't know what to get your dad for Father's day so you get him a tie. Well I didn't know what to get Russ, he didn't tell me, he said he didn't need anything! How can I work with that!?!? Yah i got him a belt. so what.

So, There are some pictures of marcus throwing Lola, i though it would make this blog a little more interesting. oh, and the video at the end will show you how excited russ was about his belt. he was THRILLED.......


Good ol Sorensen's

Well after the family Reunion I Tried to get together so spend some time with the family before they left (cuz Russ and I had to leave the reunion early to go to work) so we had an early birthday celebration fro Russell's birthday at Tucano's! Russ loves it there and I like it too! The grilled pineapple is to DIE for! Russ will eat there until he almost explodes. It's true. We almost had the whole gang there minus a few. But it was fun! It's nice to see family since we don't get to see them much! I love the Sorensen's!! (especially russ, sorry guys) =-)

Day 3 and Russ is BACK!

RUSS IS HOME! WHOO HOO! (but he came back with a cold sore so no kissing him on the lips!)

But my morning started out by getting stuck in traffic for AN HOUR on my way to work. it SUCKED. I worked until 6 then got home and had to deal with a church calling crisis (i asked someone to pick up the programs for me, because i'm in charge of that, and they forgot to but they ended up getting there right before the people working left! So we had programs for sunday!) Then i Waited for Russ. and then he got home! and then i Was happy.

Here is a video of the traffic. Does it make anyone else SICK!?!?

Day 2 without russ

Well day 2 wasn't bad. I worked about a 12 hour day at work so i am pooped. so no video for you guys. sorry. I was really looking forward to it too.

Russ finally called me today and I got to talk to him for about 10 minutes if that. This whole "i have no service" thing is not going to fly with me. I'm starting to get anxiety. haha. No more vacations without me. I miss him too much. (yes i am a stalker wife) at least he knows i love him right!?! =-)

ok and for kicks and giggles I just have to post this picture of Russ and I. i look at it and I who would have thought!?!?!? (this was before Russ even looked at me as a girl) haha.

Day one with out Russ...

Russ got invited to go to lake powell with some friends from AZ (Nick, Daniel, Ryan) (oh and i wasn't invited by the way) So he left me alone in Utah for the first time (i have left him but he has never left me) and there is a difference. When I leave to go to AZ I have friends and family there and usually a lot to do. Russ left me here in utah (ALL ALONE). I'm already going CRAZY. I made a video of my "day one" with out him. He should be back on Saturday evening so you will have maybe 2 more of these videos. If anyone would like to call me and keep me company that would be great. =-)

the video is a little pixelated (cause i made it bigger) but if you have facebook i posted it on there too and it's way better quality.

Lola is 2!

Well I am still catching up on posts but here is some of little lola's 2nd birthday! It was a great time. Just a few members of the family came over to celebrate including kerri and marcus brother! We had some amazing cake (and the cutest cake!) and it was funny to watch lola open her presents. She would get so excited about one present and then forget all about it as soon as she opened the next one. She loved her doll house and her dress ups the most i think! She was probably so overwhelmed! So many new toys! She is getting so old and so funny! She is saying the funniest things too!

I love these laughing pictures!

The Rawson Family Reunion.

Well this was my first family reunion ever and I think it was a hit! =-) Great job to everyone who put so much effort into it! It was a blast! I wish I could have stayed longer! This was my first time up to Park City (even though I have lived in Utah for almost 2 years now) but I didn't really get a chance to look at the sites. But i DID get to meet all of Russell's fun family members! We arrived on Saturday evening (after Russ and I both got off work) and took the drive up to Park City. We met his family up there and had dinner with all of the family! Russell's whole family except for Clint was able to make up up and PARTY! We got to stay 4 bedroom condo with kerri, dan and alicia (and their kids) and Amy and Marcus and Lola. It was so much fun! It was a sleep-over every night! Sunday night we had another dinner together and a HILARIOUS talent show! I wish I could have thought of something creative to do but we didn't have time to prepare anything. But we got to spend the weekend up there but had to leave sunday night because we both were back to work on Monday. ew. I so wish I could have stayed! I loved it up there hanging out with everyone! And as all of you know I took lots of pictures, so sit back and relax and enjoy!

the first pics are of lola and dacie, who pretty much were inseparable..... (they are so cute!)
