25th Birthday!!

What an incredible birthday! The pics are a little out of order, but I'll give the details of the day! I woke up to a delicious breakfast in bed! Then I headed to teach rehearsals for a few hours where my students sang to me and surpised me with huge cupcakes. Then I met up with Ashley and drank Boba drinks while we got pedicures (two of my favorite things to do)! Then, Cameron had been planning a surprise for me all week. He blindfolded me and took me to the mall where I had to complete a little task/test. When I did, he gave me a little box, which I opened, and inside were a set of keys!! He told me I had to use the car lock beeper to find the new car out in the mall parking lot. I looked very silly trying to find a car that I had never seen. Finally, in the distance I could hear a little beeping. I kept drawing closer to the noise and I couldn't believe my eyes! It was a beautiful toyota 4runner! Cameron found an amazing deal and surprised the heck out of me. I can honestly say I have never been so surprised! He wrote me a beautiful note and I made a huge scene in the parking lot! It was awesome! He is so amazing! And, just so you all know, we were looking for a car anyway, I'm not that spoiled! :) We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Old Chicago Pizza, and headed out to the Wilkins house to show the new Ride! What an awesome day!!!
Here's the beauty (not me of course!)

So excited!

Yummy breakfast in bed!

Kinley took me out to Sushi for my birthday on Friday

Our beautiful toes!

The amazing man of my dreams!


Can you say NERDS?! Yeah, I most definitely found my perfect match. There are not very many people who can beat my ugly faces! But I'd say he's pretty close! We have so much fun making ugly faces!

Guitar Hero Battle!

Battle of the sexes! (Guitar Hero version)

Cameron and I decided to get Guitar Hero for an early Christmas present.... and let's just say I have been a bit addicted! I can officially say I have passed both Hard and Expert on GH2. Yeah, I know you are all thinking I'm a bit pathetic... but it's true. So if any of you want to battle, just give me a call. :)

So, we love having Ashley and Rusty over for game night, and we decided to have a battle of the sexes with Guitar Hero. Let's just say... Girls kicked BUTT! We rocked the guys! It was a very close and intense battle, as we are ALL very competitive (you can tell on the guys faces)! Every time we hang out with the Wilkins, we remember why we love them! We are crazy together!! What amazing friends they are!

Road Trip!

On the road again! We actually have a good time on the road together. Cooper and Chloe do really good too. The only problem is.. they want to be in the front seat with us the entire time! Silly pups! It was nice to have a road trip without snow, which we haven't had the past few times. We enjoy playing 20 questions and taking random pics!

Lil' Ashley turns 3!

My little neice, Ashley, turned 3 on New Years Eve. We had a fun birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. She is such a sweet heart! I love her soo much!


What an amazing day it was! To hear both of you little brothers testify of Jesus Christ and this restored gospel is an amazing feeling! I am so proud of the missionary that Kimball was, and the missionary Dustin will be. Dustin is headed for Rachester, New York on January 9th. I am so proud of who he has become. They had a combined meeting together on the 30th of December and there was no denying the spirit that was there. After the meeting, the roads were packed with snow and everyone inched their way up to our house for the open house. It was packed! I sure love my brothers!!

Crazy House!

Over the holidays... we ALL stayed at my Mom's house! When I say ALL, that is exactly what I mean. 10 adults, 3 little girls, 1 baby, and 4 dogs! Between passing sicknesses and staying up late rockin out on Guitar Hero, We were the definition of a "close family." I loved every minute of it! The dogs had a blast and so did we!

2007 Nogger!

It was my first nogger this year!! Cameron and I looked dang snazy in our ugly sweaters! Cameron still looked good! I'm lucky to be married to such a hunk! It was so good to hang out with the old crew and catch up on life. We had plenty of great laughs! The best white elephant gift most definitely was the white elephant man thong that Richard and Emily fought for! Ha! Thanks to Amy, I now have a beautiful carving of her name in flames... 0000...!!! Fun times! Can't wait till the next one.

Ice Skating!!!

We had our traditional ice skating extravoganza at the Gallivan Center. We had a total blast! Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it!

Gray Family Christmas Party!

We had our annual Gray family Christmas party on the 21st of December. Grandma couldn't have been happier than to be with all of her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids! We had delicious food, played basketball, and had a fun program. Our family sang our traditional, "Little Round Man," as well as "Away in a Manger". We had a really good time!

The Forgotten Carols

After eating at Texas Roadhouse, we had a chance to go see The Forgotten Carols on our 3 year Anniversary! We had such a great time. It was a good way to feel of the true meaning of Christmas. What a wonderful time of year to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

World Financial Group Christmas Party

We had a fun time opening white elephant gifts and making gingerbread houses!

Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas Card 2007

Welcome home Kimball!!

It was such a treat to watch my little brother Kimball walk down the escalator when he arrived home from Ireland. He has grown up so much! I will miss his weekly emails, but am looking forward to getting Dustin's. We had so much fun anticipating his homecoming, wearing our Ireland jackets! We love having our "peacemaker" home safely!
