Lot's a Celebratin' Goin' On! :)

My family started a new tradition this year! We decided to meet the boys downtown after the Priesthood Session and have dinner as a big group! We went to Olive Garden (tradition!) Everyone but Breana was there! (Silly Breana.) :)

Britt and Joseph

Mom and Dad

And somewhere there is a picture of Dal and Britt!...Sorry! I swear I took one! Somehow it got deleted! (New camera! Not that great with it yet! :) This is all the girls before the boys came! We were all so starving when we got there!...ok...I was! :) It was SO delicious and so much fun! It has been awhile since we have all been out for dinner together! It was Mom's birthday Oct. 6th so we got our crazy waiter to sing some italian song. It was pretty crazy!
Here he is...Yes I know, I managed to get a picture of our waiter but not Brittany and Dallin. Horrible I know.
Here dad is cutting the cake...I know. Shocking right! A Griffin with food?! :) We can't help it!

I took this picture because Michael always makes fun of me for getting food all over my face EVERYTIME I eat. I don't know why. This is after a real live bite. No photoshopping involved. If anyone knows where I can take food etiquette classes let me know. Michael will probably give it to me for Christmas...He will spare no expense!!!

Here is me and my love bug. This was my favorite picture! Precious right?! :) Gotta love him.

So 0n Sunday we had Michael's family over for dinner. We wanted to have them over plus they just moved back into their old house and things are still in boxes everywhere so we wanted them to be able to relax and enjoy a nice meal! We made Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Peas and Corn, and Jello with Pineapple and Mandarin Oranges with Cool Whip on top! And for Dessert I made brownies with homemade mint and chocolate frosting! SO GOOD! It really was a good meal and it was fun to get together and laugh. We had some good times!Here's Dilbert and Michelle standing at the bottom of our stairs! Daniel for some reason likes to lay on our floor!

Daniel & Mary Lyn!

Me and the Light! :) I almost hit my head on that thing alot!
So I was trying to put the chocolate frosting over top the mint but the mint hadn't dried yet so I couldn't finish without making it a disaster! So I had to stop. Meanwhile this is what the brownies looked like. Too bad, I know.

We got bored and started playing with the frosting! (I don't know how to turn this picture!) Sorry.
I guess I have a weird face when i'm concentrating on frosting brownies! Mmm Mmmm Good! :) The night was a success! I still need to post Breana's birthday pictures from last night!...SO fun! But Michael keeps telling me I have to go to bed and my eye lids are agreeing! Til next time!
