LIZ AND ERIK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh. We had the best weekend EVER. Want to know why? Liz and Erik and Elliot came to visit! They are our very best friends, and we have missed them like CRAZY since we moved away from Provo. So when they decided to fly out to visit us from where they live now in Missouri, of course we were overjoyed. We had such a great time hanging out, playing with the kids, enjoying Liz's mad cooking skills, and plotting Elliot and Sophie's distant but imminent nuptials. Elliot is such a sweetheart. He is smiley smiley smiley all the time, has this awesome dance (think some kind of slow, chubby sideways baby shimmy) that he always does, and has his own trademark wave that he does to anyone and everyone. He just raises his arm up in the air with his palm out in a very manly way like he's just very nonchalantly saying "Hey, dude." We love Elliot. We are definitely in the Elliot fan club. Possibly the co-presidents. Anyways, Liz and Erik were a huge help, entertaining the kids, holding Sophie so we could actually get things done, cooking food for us, cleaning up, you name it! We were definitely sad to see them go. Calvin is in denial about it, actually, and keeps asking where Elliot is napping and when he will wake up. He wanders past the office, where Liz and Erik and Elliot stayed, and asks "Where the guys??" Anyways, thanks for coming you guys! We miss you! You are the best and we can't wait to start our new lives together on the compound (the hobby farm we will someday build together somewhere rural yet urban with two awesome huge houses where Michael and Erik can implement their crazy ideas form Hobby Farms magazine to their hearts' content and Liz and I can make yummy food all day long). Here are some fun pictures from our 4 days of Anderson/Moore bliss:

Reunited at last!

Ryan has always had a little boy crush on Liz, so when he asked for special Ryan and Liz time, Liz obliged. This was their "Ryan and Liz date":
