Tummy Update

Since a picture of my tummy has been in such high demand we finally took a picture.  I have really felt a change in my tummy the last couple of days.  It seems to have grown overnight!

Welcome Home Landon!

We have had such a wonderful weekend with Tyler's family! Tyler's younger brother, Landon returned home from his mission on Friday! We have had a blast spending time with him and hearing his experiences and stories from Texas. Here is a picture of all of us at the airport picking him up. It is such a sweet moment to see them for the first time in two years!

Welcome Home Landon...yee haw!

Our Next Adventure

Tyler and I are really excited for our upcoming play. We are opening in the Secret Garden next Friday! Tyler plays Archibald and I am playing Lily. It's been an absolute blast practicing together. The story is very sweet and we have really come to enjoy playing across each other. This is definately my favorite role! Tyler has enjoyed his part as well, though it is a difficult one.

You are all invited to come! Let us know if you need any further details. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Just Before Finals

This upcoming week is finals for me. As I was driving to the grocery store, I was fortunate enough to have a bumper car challenge with the large truck behind me. Since he got the citation, he was of course lucky enough to have no damage done to his car. I will now be carless throughout my finals week. YES! I will need a new tail light, trunk lid, the trunk seam will need to be welded and definitely a new bumper. Luckily, this is my first accident since 2001.

This is the kind of truck that hit me. So I am pretty lucky that this is all the damage that I have.

Doesn't it look pretty!

Aston Family Reunion 2010

Seeing these pictures tonight made me feel so happy as I thought back on our reunion together. I agree with my sister that my idea of heaven is being with my family. Although we are far away from each other, our love as a family grows stronger with each experience we share with one another. Whether those experiences are wonderful or challenging our family bond will always bring us closer together.

I love you all! Thank you for the memories.

Happy Valentine's Day

This year we celebrated Valentine's Day with homemade valentines! Starting at the beginning of the week I made Tyler a valentine everyday. It was fun to try and be creative. It really pays off to be a second grade teacher when you need ideas to make cute valentines. Buttons, sequence, tissue paper, pom poms...perhaps Tyler will be happy when I no longer have access to these cutsie supplies.
Tyler surprised me with a "Top 10 Reasons Why I Want You to be My Valentine!". He hid each of these reasons (that I might add were attached to delightful treats) around our house and sent me on a scavenger hunt. It is so wonderful to have a darling husband. I love being loved by him!

The World's Largest Rolls

Before church this afternoon we set our rolls out to raise. Our house can get up to 78 degrees when the blinds are open, so we placed them right in front of the window to help them raise on time. This picture shows what we came home to! We were lucky to get through the front door with rolls that big! We joked that instead of rolls, we each had our own loaf of bread.

Despite our mishap, we enjoyed a lovely roast dinner with Heather and Papa.
