I just wanted to pass on info about the marriage class that Brad and I took a few months ago. We LOVED it and recommend every married (or engaged) couple take it. I checked with the instructor Keri Maughan and the next marriage workshop will be in the spring. Date unknown as of right now.

She suggested books to read between now and then. “How to improve your marriage without talking about it” by Steven Stosny & Patricia Love along with “The Anatomy of Peace” by the Arbinger Institute.

Here's her info, fyi:

First of all I stole that picture off of my mom's blog, so no I did not crop you out, but I laughed the whole time reading that wondering if my mom cropped you guys out, but then remembered I took that picture with Mary's camera! And Second I saw that picture of your husbands sad forehead and then remembered the text recieved the night of amy's "nikki" shower, and then thought he really deserved that!Hee Hee!

Hey jill, you gave me the ultimate compliment on my post (though i fear you've never really seen my legs before, or you'd think twice about coveting them...). I secretly admire you very much, and so thanks for that. I wish very badly I had you as a neighbor cause we'd have fuuu-uuun.

I'm down here(MESA) for my cousins wedding. How far away do you live from the temple? I'll be there in the morn and may have time to kill after lunch. Text/call my number 4944662 (UT area code). How far away do you live from Leah?

Yeah, Jack's a dwarf most days of the week, but he was a "lawn bearded gnome" for Halloween. I don't know if lawn gnomes are dwarfs, though, so I'm not sure if the answer really is no...

Anyway, I'm lovin' that you won "scariest" with your ice skating costumes! AND I'm finding it hard to believe that baby Jace really sleeps that long.. or maybe it's just that I'm super jealous. I will have another if it promises to sleep that long!

OK. So the doughnut game works like this, and it is a hoot.

I didn't have enough blindfolds for 12 people, so everyone just closed their eyes. Each couple has one doughnut per string and the first couple to finish (no hands allowed) Wins! Some may get distracted if you have never practiced kissing with a delicious doughnut between your lips...

You can also do it one at a time (for those single folk), but eyes closed are a must. Watching kids pair up is SOO hilarious and adorable. You should definitely try it.

Do you have any other fun couple and/or party games? I am in search...

Plus, I ended up getting your text right before we left Sunday morning (when I was in AZ). Next time though, I'll give you advanced warning and we should get together! I want to meet your adorable family.
