We're just getting ready for the cold over here. Grandpa and Merry took Lydia coat shopping for her upcoming birthday. Lydia was clever, and snuck this cute vest into the basket too!

(By the way, the book Lydia is reading is "Uncle Tom's Cabin." She's so educated!)

We went to my friend Justin's wedding reception this weekend at the Springville Art Museum. A reception in a MUSEUM! What a FANTASTIC idea! They had yummy treats. I loved the hot chocolate bar.

(Yes, that black nail polish is a remnant from Halloween, which was almost a month ago. I know.)
Lydia loved sitting on Daddy's lap and trying to eat lemon pie.

She didn't like it when we said no more!

And isn't this the cutest centerpiece you've ever seen? I know these pictures are just absolutely awful, but we were using Ryan's camera phone. Blame the phone.

After we gobbled up our goodies, we browsed the galleries of the museum. (Again, isn't that the coolest place for a reception???) I loved their Russian collection. If you want to see the pictures we saw there, go to my site, on Monday!

Dad on a Camel

My dad does not own a T-shirt. When I was in Girl Scouts, we decorated T-shirts for our dads for Father's Day. My devoted daddy dutifully wore my proudly made gray T-shirt with a lovely portrait of a yellow haired girl with a triangle nose. Then, the shirt made it's way into the far recesses of his drawers and never surfaced again. That is the only time in my life I have ever seen him wear a T-shirt. (He must love me a lot!)

Any given Saturday, you can go to my parent's house and find my dad weeding, mowing the lawn, or trimming the bushes, wearing a button down long sleeved shirt. What's more, there's a good chance that button down shirt has been ironed!

So I adore this picture of my dad in Bethany, riding a camel in a button down shirt. (At least it's short sleeved!)
