valentines day weekend

we had a really fun valentines day weekend! my mom and dad came to town to see emery (and us too, i guess) and we had a blast! here are some pics!

ALSO - Aaron took the GMAT and got the score he needed to get into the school he wanted. as soon as we're sure he's in we'll reveal to the world where we're headed next! :) I'm so proud of him!


the view from our table at "the roof" restaurant in SLC

aren't my parents so cute? i love them.

i also love emery's face when she ate creme brulee - haha.

pooped out.

cute emery after she woke up from a nap in her stroller


and we aren't sure why emery does this with her fingers when she walks around, but it sure is cute!

really, more? yes.... more. emery signed "more" FINALLY and she learned her 1st (English) word (she usually speaks "emery") besides mom and dad - no. how fitting for my spunky girl, huh?

and emery pretty much thinks her dad is the funniest thing that ever lived. this is hilarious. listen for her squeal! :)

she did it!!! she still has a way to go in terms of standing up on her own and walking all the time, but she's certainly capable!! and she's funny too. :)

a busy week (in stacey style)

my friend stacey h. did the cutest post on her blog, so i thought i'd do something similar. i haven't posted in a while so here is an update on our busy week.

aaron: tried to avoid studying for the inevitable GMAT he'll be taking on Valentine's Day (yes folks, we're THAT romantic!) but did catch up on his other homework, play with his girls and straightened up the house quite a bit, took britt to an accounting event for PwC, interviewed with PwC for their summer leadership program, worked, climbed, went to ward choir and surprised britt by shacking up with the tenors (i really thought he was a bass), made his wife a delicious "grand slam breakfast" at home when the wait at denny's for the free one was 2 hours (we called at 6:45 am)

emery: learned how to give high fives, pushed the stroller around the mall for almost an hour (someday she'll walk - promise!), got stomach flu and barfed on mommy and her dinner on top of still having her icky cold with cough and runny nose, wined a lot (because of sicknesses previously listed - i hope), may have said "more", took a few steps on her own between things, clapped her hands, stomped her feet and rolled her arms with the rest of the kids at toddler time at the library - and "shook her sillies out" too (too cute!), learned to play on The ABC Zoo on the computer and mimicked a bunch of different animal sounds

britt: fell in love with the buy low market (i love 2 lbs for $1 bell peppers), slacked off on early morning gym going (i was really tired this week!), worked through 100+ pages of historical essays and became a "footnote babysitter" to a couple of professional historians who apparently struggle with correct citation methods, took an hour and half nap one day instead of working (whoops!), ate a delicious 5-alarm cheeseburger and unlimited fries at red robin with aaron (mmmm.... drool...) and watched "The Court Jester" (thanks Mary and Barney!)

our grand slam breakfast

mr. clean

another sweet buy low market purchase - a $5 blow up chair for emery. she loves it.
