Happy Birthday Daddy! (yesterday)

Yesterday was my dad's 54th birthday! He is so smazing and the funniest guy! If any of you remember him, you'll know he came off as such a tough guy... total facade! I don't know where I would be without him. Everytime we talk he has a new adventure to inform me on (I bought a house in Oklahoma, We're down in San Fran having dinner, We just rented a helicopter and I flew under the golden gate bridge) We have had our share of hard times, but we always make it through them. He calls me weekly and is the sweetest dad. He can't wait to be a grandpa and is constantly informing me that I should be a "good mormon" and have kids right away!(By the way he is not a member of the LDS church) Haha. So I was talking to him yesterday and asked him what he had planned and this is what he said....

dad: "Right now Kaitlin, I am just perfecting my pale ale"
me" "What dad?"
dad:"Oh, well I got a home brewing kit so I can make my own beer"
me: "Huh?"
dad: "You're not listening, I decided I want to make my own beer. So I ordered this and my first batch is a fine pale ale"
me: "Uhhh, ok? (Laughing hysterically) are you going to make wine too?"
dad: "Wine is a fine art, I don't know if i'll be able to master. Perhaps some day. For now i'll just have to continue my trips to napa valley to spy"
me: "Ok dad (STILL laughing hysterically). I love you. Have a happy birthday. I'll call you later"

I LOVE my dad so much and miss him more than I ever thought I would. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!!

12. Who does the dishes? NOT me! Ha! He is weird about the dishes (like they have to be scrubbed spotless BEFORE they go in the dishwasher) so I would mess it up on purpose when I had to do them and I honestly cannot remember the last time I did the dishes. Bwa ha ha!

It's been a year! Yay!

It's been exactly one year today since Jon and I tied the knot! Here are a few pics of our "special day". A few things (Please be reminded that I HATE our wedding pics :(. ) Notice how I didn't post ANY pics of us coming out of the temple, I was bawling!! It was this first time I had seen my dad in almost a year! Also somehow my photographer was a little too preoccupied to take pictures of our reception. I have like 20 tops... that was my FAVORITE part. It was a blast! One more thing, the lady that did our cake just delivered it WITHOUT the flowers SO my sisters and videographer tried their hand at it. Hehehe! All in all it truly was the BEST day of my life.

p.s. I can NOT figure out picasa... any tips??
