Elder Anderson is HOME!!

I can't believe my brother is already home. Seems like yesterday that we just took him to the MTC. (I'm sure my mom would tell you otherwise though).
Well, we started the fun on Wednesday night. My mom and I went and bought yellow poster board and yellow paper plates to decorate our house, a long with the power poles down the street from us. It was lots of fun getting ready for him to come home! Also, my brother Kody (who lives in Washington) was able to come home too! I was so happy to see him.
Then yesterday, 02-19-09, All of the family met up at the airport. Kris's flight was supposed to come in at 10:00 am, but we got lucky, and his flight landed 15 minutes early! When he came down the escalator everyone started cheering for him, and all of the other missionaries that were coming home.
I know that he loves his mission, and that he was a wonderful missionary. When he came off the escalator we were able to give him a hug, it was so cute though, he wanted to first just shake all of our hands.
After we picked him up we were able to go back to my parents house and talk and catch up with Kris. He showed us pictures of his mission, and told us about his experiences in Chicago.
I just couldn't get enough of him! I followed him around everywhere. he he. :)
Our family was able to also go out to lunch at Gecko's and then go to Midge's (Kjersti) church basketball game. She did awesome!! It was so fun to have all of the family together again. (minus Jade, and baby Carson)-Can't wait to see you two on Tuesday!!
Then we had dinner, and I made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies! YUMMY!
Kris then had lots of phone calls and lots of visitors. Everyone was so excited to see him! Gosh I love him!
What a fun day!! I'm so happy to have him home. I'm so proud of him too, I know he changed a lot of people's lives.
P.S. I'll post pictures later when I get home!

Happy Valentines Day!

wow is my hubby a cutie!! I'm so lucky to have such an amazing husband! Steve has always been a little romancer, from day one. He is always doing the sweetest things for me. Not only on valentines day does he always surprise me, but every day of the week he is constantly showing me that he loves me. For example, he always gets up extra early and starts my car up for me before I have to go in for work and scrapes off the snow and ice on my windshield. Or I'll come home from work and find a note on the counter or open the pantry and find my favorite bag of flaming hot Cheetos! He always is showing love for me. I'm so blessed to have such an amazing husband.
On Valentines Day Steve surprised me with some roses (I've always been a sucker for those!) and then awhile ago I told him how much I would love to have a CTR ring. I completely forgot that I had mentioned it to him and he surprised me with one! It's so pretty! It has two hearts on each side of the CTR. -perfect for v-day!
I surprised Steve with a poster board card with candy/candy bars on it, and then gave him some cuff links, that he has been wanting for a long time.
Steve and I played games and watched a movie (our favorite things to do together). We had a great time spending time with each other.
I love you Steve! Thanks again for being such an amazing hubby!
