Friday Flashback

Here is my cousin, Laura and I when we were 16. Isn't she beautiful? Growing up we were best friends and when we were younger, people would always ask or think we were twins. Funny, huh?! But we loved it! We have had so many good times. I sure love her!

Nate blew Carson's nose with this napkin and was fascinated with the smiley face it made. Nothing like a little snot art! :-)

Dear Santa

Yesterday Colby asked me if I could call Santa and tell him what he wants for Christmas. I suggested we write him a letter, so we did. Here is Colby's first letter to Santa Claus: Here is a little translation:
Boots- but then he remembered he has boots and crossed it off.
Ears to not hear the snowmobile loud
VSmile Games

He is growing up! :-)

Flashback Friday

Carrie did this and I thought it was a fun idea!
This is a picture of Nate and I when we were first dating. It was 6 years ago! My how time flies when you are having fun!

PS. I changed my blog template and it looks really cute on my computer, but when I go to view it on a different computer it doesn't show up right. So not cool!!! Anyone know why that is? Just thought I would ask. :-)

7 Things

I love a good challenge!!! 7 things you didn't know about me (or maybe you already do!)

1. I am obsessed with Dental Hygiene. So, Abbi, I am right there with you!

2. I have real issues with "putting people out" or another way of putting it....asking for help.

3. My dream car is a Toyota Sequoia. Someday.

4. I don't have a relationship with my birth Father. I was raised by my Step-dad, who I consider my real dad. He is wonderful! I love you Pops! :-)

5. I can say the alphabet backwards, thanks to Nate and Colby!

6. I had to be saved by Search and Rescue after getting lost and spending the night at Bridges National Monument with my Aunt Cyndie. We are bonded for life! :-)

7. Nate and I got engaged at the Salt Lake Winter Olympics. It was so cool! :-)

My New Favorite Art

Has anyone seen this Temple art by John Raymond? I saw them in Desert Book last week and fell in love with it!! I want it!!! It would go perfect in my family room.

Too Early For The Christmas Spirit???

There is a radio station that starts playing Christmas music non stop on Halloween. I have started to listen to it and am getting that Christmas Spirit. I LOVE IT!!! My only worry is that I will lose it before Christmas actually comes. I love Christmas and everything it means. It is time to start really thinking about gifts and decorating and giving. My favorite time of year!
PS. My mom left yesterday and I have been feeling a little blue. :( I miss her!

Black Friday

I have been getting emails letting me know about the Black Friday ads as they come out. I have no idea how I got on this email list, but I am getting them. I have cousins who go through all the ads Thanksgiving night to plan out what they are getting and where. Now, I have never subjected myself to the the Black Friday adventure, but this year I am seriously considering it. I have one item I want to get for a Christmas present and I can get it for a really good deal if I take advantage of Black Friday. Has anyone ever braved this day?? I am curious to know if it is worth it or not?? Please tell me your stories, because frankly, this picture frightens me!!!!!!

And if anyone is interested here is the website with all the Black Friday deals

Back To Life.....Back To Reality

We have returned from out trip to Cali and we had the BEST time ever!!!! I just can't say enough how much fun it was! It was just perfect! We started out at Universal Studios and Colby got to meet Dora, Deigo, and Spiderman. He was quite shy to say hello or take a picture, so as you can see we had to pose with him.
We then spent 3 days in Disneyland. So fun!!! Colby LOVED every minute of it. Especially the rides. He went on everything he was tall enough for. So impressive! He went on Tower of Terror, Space Mountain, Matterhorn, Thunder and Splash Mountain. He was a total trooper. Hardly ever complained. We had so much fun with him and Nae, Rhonda, Carter and my Dad.
The theme this year at Disneyland is "Year of a Million Dreams", so they have "Dream Team"Members around the park that give out free stuff to guests randomly. We were the lucky recipients of Fast Passes for all the big rides. You can see below the blue things around our neck. This was a big deal and we felt SO special!!! Disneyland truly is magical!

We then went down to San Diego and spent the last two days in Sea World and the San Diego Zoo.

We are sad to have the trip over, but are glad to be home, especially back with our Carson! Thank you Curt, Carrie and Mom for taking such good care of him while we were away! We love you guys!!!
