My 22nd Birthday :)

My birthday this year was one of the best ever! My awesome Mom and Sister and friends all planned an awesome surprise party for me!

It all started a few weeks before my birthday when my mom and sister informed me that they wanted to take me out to a fancy dinner on the Saturday after my birthday but they wouldn't tell me where because they wanted it to be a surprise! So I was pretty excited about that to begin with.

The actual day of my birthday wasn't anything extra special. It was just like any other day. I woke up and cleaned my whole house then took my Grandma to the doctor, had some Starbucks and then just spent a little time with her at the house. Around 4 I went over to my Eternal Companion's house and hung out with her for a little while. We went to dinner at Olive Garden with our friend Kim and then went to the Melting Pot for dessert. It was a nice little birthday dinner. By the end of the day I had just come to terms with the fact that I'm getting old and once you are 22 your birthday just doesn't mean that much anymore. Just another day in the year right? Not right!

When Saturday rolled around I was so excited to finally find out where my mom and sister were taking me for dinner! We got all dressed up and got in the car to go and they actually made me close my eyes once we got close so that I wouldn't know where we were going! I closed my eyes when we got to 7th street and when we turned into the place I kind of guessed that we were at the Pointe Hilton because we were taking all kinds of turns and going up and down and that is just not usual for Phoenix streets. So I was still so excited because I had never had dinner there before. What I didn't know is that they led me up to the door and made me close my eyes the whole way and when I opened my eyes I was standing in a hotel room and all my best friends were there. Katie, Briana, Amber, Ashley were all standing there! I was so stinking excited and surprised! I really had no clue! The funny thing is that when my mom first told me that she wanted to take me to dinner I asked if my girlfriends could come with and she said no just because she wanted to have a little family girls night. So I was really thrown off! Then we went to the restaurant and yet another surprise! My dad, Evan, Tiffany, Addyson, Brooklynn, Tyler, Mercedez, Mama, Leanne, Amy, Chris, and Amy were all there! We all sat down and ordered our dinner after I was done freaking out and then while we were waiting for our food I was once again surprised. I turned around and Kailan was walking up to the table. I was extra surprised at this because I had just talked to Kaily on my birthday and she said she wasn't coming home from Utah until August! It was such a perfect night!

After dinner, the old people (my dad, Mama, Evan, and Tiff) all went home and the rest of us went to the pool and had some fun. After that all the boys left and we had a good little fat club sleepover in the hotel room! I had such a blast and felt so loved. Everything was absolutely perfect! I couldn't ask for a better birthday :)

My girls and me :) They decorated the room all over :)

Tyler Tyler Tyler and Christmas in February

Ok so this past week has been a WHIRLWIND of events and emotions. There are going to be alot alot of pictures in this post so if you are not into that sort of thing then I suggest you stop reading this right NOW. I started off last week anticipating my brothers homecoming from his mission in North Carolina. Wednesday was the day and when it finally came, it proved to be one of the best days of my life. We all gathered at Sky Harbor Airport terminal 3 around 3 o' clock in the afternoon and waited for him to walk past the south security checkpoint and back into our lives.

I can't explain the sheer excitement and joy that I felt at this moment in time right here:

Reunited with my best friend after two years. I missed him so dang much I can't even explain. I never wanted to let go of him at this moment in time right here:
Tyler's welcoming committee (minus Gary Bear, we made him take the picture)

After we left the airport, we all went to Mama's to hang out with some more of the family and eat tons of food like always. We spent a few hours there so he could visit with everyone before we drove back to Prescott for him to be released from his mission.

Brooky Poo meeting her Uncle Tyler for the first time since she was born. She was the first baby he has held in two years. She loves him already.

Uncle "Tiger" teaching Addy pants how to catch a football.

Addyson doing arabesques with her daddy cavalier

No longer a missionary. Sitting on the bedroom floor in regular clothes, and crazy socks.

I don't think I look happy at all do I? We stayed up so late just hanging out and talking and listening to the music he has missed the past two years and hearing stories of his mission. He is so amazing.

His Buddy Holly look suits him well, no?
After all that amazingness ended, we went back to Phoenix for a few days and then drove back up to Prescott on Friday night so that we could have our Christmas celebration with Tyler here. We all gave him our presents and he gave us ours. And of course Santa brought everyone a little something as well. That day, we went shopping at the mall and then went home and ate ravioli dinner (my dad made special cheese ravioli for the vegetarian of the family) and then we opened presents. After that, we watched This Is It and The Dark Knight. Casey and his wife Jenna came over, as well as Richard. My friend Jackie came up with me from Phoenix and spent the whole weekend with us, so it was just a huge party at the Regnier's all weekend long. :)

Doing what us Regnier's do best...EATING

Silly faces

Silly hats (This is Jackie aka My Twin)

The cutest girls in the whole entire world driving a car in the mall

Playing in the snow...sooo cold haha
At dinner, my mom introduced to us a Mardi Gras cake which had a baby Jesus hidden inside of it. Apparently its a grand tradition for Mardis Gras or something and whoever gets the piece with the baby Jesus in it is the King.

Evan was the King...poor baby Jesus

Me and my love at dinner...only cheese ravioli for us please!

Present time, Brooky is excited!

Assuming the Christmas positions

Ready for some Christmas action

Tyler being Santa

It truly was a great week. After Saturday night, Jackie and I had to drive back to Phoenix for work but then after work on Monday, we turned around and drove back to spend a few more days with Tyler, and Richard of course. We just hung out, watched movies, went out to eat and twiddled our thumbs a little bit but it was so nice to spend quality time with people that I love. I am so blessed. I am so glad that Tyler had such an amazing experience on his mission and am so glad for how much he has grown. His influence on me is so great and I look up to him in so many ways. I am such a lucky girl to know him and to get to have him as a brother and best friend.
