One of her Laurel leaders did her hair, it was so beautiful. I wish I had taken a picture of the back.
The night before several of Brenn's friends came over so Grandma could make the boutonnieres (sp). Even tho she has forgotten a few things, flowers are like walking to her and she just whipped out about 7 of them in no time!
See how its done.
I am glad they both had fun and I love to see all of the kids dressed up. The girls were lovely and the boys handsome. I was so busy I didn't take too many other pictures but Brad did and when I get them I will post some of the lovely, modest dresses.

Then we had a really good lesson.
Now I must preface this with the fact I was sitting my my girlfriend Kathi Porter - who was visiting our ward from Utah so her wonderful son Nic could give a homecoming talk in the ward he left from (they moved to Utah a while ago) - Now Kathi and I worked in YW for a long time and we "get" each other. So here we are eating skittles I got in Sunday School and we start to sing the closing song, I am sure someone was trying to stretch us to learn new hymns and I do get tired of the same ole' songs (I hope whoever chose the song will not be offended) and we sang song #121 "I'm a Pilgrim, I'm a Stranger." After the first couple of lines Kathi and I were starting to crack up...

This is one of her roses - the were huge and so fragrant. On to my Zara - she is getting really big - she keeps trying to lay on her stomach with legs stretched out in front and back, but she can't. Only about 2 more weeks - I tried to get a count down clock for dog pregnancy and could not find one, then I tried to get just a regular one and it would not load so..
Here is the birthing center. Ken actually thinks she is going to give birth her, isn't that cute? I figure it will be under the bench in our bedroom because that is where she sleeps. But hopefully we will be able to keep the puppies in it for a few weeks, then we will move them outside.
Here is THE Prom dress - I will add some sleeves so she can still wear her undergarments. But it looks so great on Brenn and it is so her style!
These are the shoes!
Now I just have to find a Tux for Dallin. And because Jen is down in bed dinner is now at my house! Maybe we can have Costco ham.

Needless to say - EEEWWW!! - and probably the fastest way to get a response from a girl (Dallin's date still hasn't answered and its be a week and a half) I made Brenn return the mice with her answer THAT night, we heard his brothers snake was hungry. For that last part of the note (the naked part) he left a bottle of Naked Juice.
In other news, it was brought to my attention by a close and frustrated friend that I do not finish or tell the result of a story, unfortunately (maybe) that is not true - my bathroom looks just the same today as it did in that post - no time to even think (or argue with Ken) about what to do with that tile. Hopefully we will get it done before summer and I promise to post a picture of the after. I also promise to post pictures of the PUPPIES!! We are so excited!
Mostly I have been enjoying the wonderful weather and trying to plant a few roses and flowers in a sad attempt to make my front yard look a little better.
I am planning Easter dinner with our families. I hope everyone has a lovely Easter and remembers our Savior and the example he set for us to follow.

And made a poster that said:
"I will be your knight in shinning armour if you go to Prom with me."
Much better don't you think?
Now on to Brenn and Prom - we have a mess - when we sort it out and figure out what to do I will post the whole story, right now we are in trouble.
