This post is just for my wonderful second mother Cheryl! We are so grateful for all you do for us! You always know just how to let us know you are thinking of us in Kansas...from a call to a sweet note...I am so blessed to have you in my life. Thanks for raising such a great son who makes life so fun. I know Josh gets his positive attitude and passion for life from you. Love you so much! xoxo

Richards Mission Call #2!

Hayden got his call yesterday! He is going to be serving in the Guatemala, Guatemala City Central Mission! He is SO excited. He leaves in May 26th. My mom said she got her wish...."A little slice of humble pie for Hayden..." : ) I said all along that I thought he would go somewhere foreign. I am so proud of how hard he has worked to get to this point. He will be an awesome missionary!

Blake and (the new) Jessica Richards!

My little brother got married on January 2nd! Time sure goes by fast...seems like yesterday I was getting married and Blake was getting ready to go on his mission. The amazing girl he married is Jessica. It gets a little confusing with the same name, but guess we will figure that out later. The best part about this, is my mom and I finally have another girl joining the fam! Jess is perfect for Blake and I am so happy for the both of them. Here are a few pics of their wedding... it was a beautiful day. Too bad Josh couldn't be there, guess someone has to be responsible and work!

.....and Brog...


For any of you that do not know Brogan is a DIE HARD Boise State fan! He LOVES football. It is pretty impressive to see a 7 year old watch an entire football game and know exactly what is going on. Well...the boys (besides Blake) decided last minute that they were going on a road trip to the fiesta bowl. This was all a surprise to Brog! They were just going to get in the car and tell him on the road. I convinced my dad to tell him at the house to see his reaction...it was priceless...

Mom and I had a relaxing couple of days while the boys were gone. We watched the Fiesta Bowl at the Egyptian Theater down town...there was quite the crowd there! We were wishing we were in warmer weather but we still had fun! GO BRONCOS!

DECEMBER... Where did it go!?

Even though I had a month break from school and my internship..it was still a crazy busy month and it went WAY too fast. I was in Boise for a week... then joined Josh in Logan for Christmas with his family! We had a wonderful Christmas... Josh was off to Kansas to work, and I was back in Boise for another week for Blakey's wedding (post to come soon)! It was SO great being with our families over the holidays...living far away sure does make that time so much more special! We are so grateful for the amazing families we have and all they do for us! We miss you already! xoxo Good thing I graduate in May so you have to come see us ! : )

We had our annual girls' Christmas party, almost everyone could make it. We have had this dinner since Junior High...it's always great catching up!

We went to see the lights in SLC with the Browns...Thanks for the wonderful night out Jeff and Cheryl. It's great being back in Utah!

Christmas Eve withe the Kuresas was a BLAST...as ALWAYS...can't wait for 2011!

We got spoiled this Christmas by our families! Christmas day was perfect...hanging out, family, friends, eating, movie watching, more eating, games....
