(Alright Buffy, I'll give this a try)

10 years ago...
I had just graduated high school and was getting ready to head out to Utah to begin my college adventure... Go Cougs! I remember riding my bike from DT to the shops at Riverwoods to spend what little money I had at Abercrombie and Fitch. I also remember my S-Hall 3rd floor homies, that stupid ice cream machine in basement of our dorm (I'm still working those things off!), dance parties and late night massage sessions! I got a job working for Todd's roommate in the records department in the bottom of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Todd finally found the courage to come in and meet me. Our first date was a haunted hay ride... and that was pretty much the end of my "college adventure!"

Today's to do list...

Well since today's almost over, there's not much left to do!
1. Make dinner
2. Wipe Sam's nose for the millionth time today
3. Pack up some props for tonight's mutual activity

Places I have lived...
1. Born in Provo, UT
2. Miami, FL
3. Aurora, CO
4. Loveland, CO
5. Provo, UT
6. Colorado Springs, CO (we're on our 3rd home)

If I were a millionaire...
What does a million dollars really get you these days? A tank of gas??! A bigger check to the government on April 15??!

Well, I guess there's a few things I would do...

1. A few home improvement projects like, a new deck and a new kitchen (complete with this incredible sink that I saw in this years Parade of Homes!

2. I would let Todd get a new truck if I could have his Tahoe in addition to purple undercarraige lights and spinner rims!
3. A Berry family trip to Barbados. Yeah mon!

Snacks I enjoy...
There's pretty much not a snack I don't enjoy! I love anything gooey, creamy, cold, hot and the richer the better! However, I'm trying to stick to Smart Pop's Kettle Corn because I've spent a lifetime eating the above mentioned "snacks".

{First Day of Kindergarten...

Today was Jackson’s first day of school! He was so excited to go to the “big school on the hill!” His teacher’s name is Mrs. Dillon and it made his day when he found out that he and Sam Baer are in the same class. (I have a feeling that Jackson and Sam will not be sitting together...) It was so fun to watch him put on his backpack and head into his new school. I hope that this will be a fabulous year full of fun and lots of learning. Jackson is bright and will do really well. It is a day thatI will not soon forget - from 7:55 to 11:10 Sam and I are on our own. We will miss our J-Dawg!

{My new goal...

I just decided that if I'm going to take the time to blog and upload pictures, I may as well take a few more minutes to create a scrapbook page! Who knows, if I can actually keep current with all my new photos I may even be able to catch up!

These pictures are from our camping trip to 11 mile last weekend. We had a really great time with the Kimballs. Thanks guys! We got started a little late this summer but we hope to get a few more camping trips in before the first snow fall........

Mr. and Mrs. Forbes

Tessa and Adam were married in the Denver Temple on August 1st. Presdent Baer was their sealer and was absolutely fabulous.

They had their reception on the 2nd of August in mom and dad's backyard. Mom was busy arranging all of the flowers so Aunt Dina (aka... the white tornado) was put in charge of making sure everything else was done and accounted for.

If there is anyone who knows how to throw a party it is my mom! We've all told her that she should do it professionally. The decorations, food, flowers everything was perfect. The weather could not have cooperated any better either. It was a magical evening. Congrats Tessa and Adam!
