This calls for a celebration

We've had a good time.  On Thursday Emma and I (Adam was out of town) took Mark to dinner to celebrate his birthday.  We both wore Star Wars shirts in honor of Mark.  (He was wearing one too but that's pretty much what he usually wears.)

Mark said he would take the selfie because his arms are longer.  That was hurtful as well as true.

He also opened his present from my parents.  It was a Lego set. (What else could it possibly have been?) 

Notice the Milky Way candy bar in the background?  He saved it from his Halloween candy for his birthday.

Friday Geri came and by then Adam had returned.  We went to downtown Salt Lake and met up with Marianne and Robert and family there.  We had dinner at a German restaurant where the proprietors were slightly intimidating but the food was delicious.  The Johnsons went to a play and we went to Temple Square.

Mark is standing uphill in this shot.  He's not THAT tall....

I love going to Temple Square anytime.  In December, it is pure magic.

Here we are in the Joseph Smith Building.  And yes, Adam is wearing sandals.

Saturday we had one kind of adventure and another.  One low point was me locking my keys inside the van while Adam was refereeing a basketball game and couldn't come to the rescue.  A high point was having a brother who is always at the ready to save the day...even when he is in the middle of remodeling a bathroom.  Ammon for president!  (Seriously, I like him more than any of the other candidates.  A lot more.)

We went to the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the BYU Art Museum which I loved.  We had birthday cake (I think the picture is blurred because Mark was rushing off to finish his Lego set Grandma Geri gave him):

there was a slight cake crumbs in the frosting issue
And Geri treated us to The Forgotten Carols.

It's all been lovely.

My brother is a dork. Sandals in Dec, really? Maybe with the snow today he'll put on shoes that cover his toes.

Hula hula. Glad you're having so much fun. I hope Emma's concert went well. I'm sure it did. I wish I could have been there!
