Well to say my birthday started out with a bang is an understatement! The week before I lost my class, and so Monday morning started with me in a new classroom! Chris made my birthday perfect though! We went to Oregenos for dinner and opened my presents! It was a wonderful wonderful birthday :]
The following weekend my parents came down! Above is the cake my dad made me. He always makes me my birthday cake. He did a wonderful job.
Our sideways Christmas tree. I was so excited to decorate the house for Christmas. Our Christmas tree was up even before Thanksgiving.
The family room.
My mom bought me a Fudge kit. We tried to make fudge....it turned out a little chunky, but good!
Making Fudge with the crazy hair dog!
We also made Sugar Cookies!
On Sunday we went and saw the temple lights at the Mesa Temple. They were SO pretty!
We did a lot while they were down here. We saw "Aurthur Christmas", "The Muppet Movie", went shopping, ate at Olive Garden, and spent a lot of fun family time!
We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving this year. We drove up and were able to spend about four days in Kanab. My grandparents were able to come up for it too so it was just splendid. We did miss Josh though. He was with his girlfriend for Thanksgiving in Pine Valley.
All the guests!
This year I made the rolls. They actually turned out really good! I also made the apple pie.
Our new family for Thanksgiving!
My dad looked like he was ready to go sledding!
We also Decorated the Christmas tree while we were there.
Moegly had so much that he passed out cold!
We celebrated my birthday with my grandparents while we were there. We had yummy pound cake and strawberries. It was such a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so grateful for the wonderful friends and family that are in our lives. We hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
Ok so after I have FINALLY rearanged my pictures I am ready to blog about October!
First up on the List:
Trip to Kanab!
I had a week off at school so I went up to visit my family and friends in Kanab. I took Josh's senior pictures and as you can tell we got a little carried away!
The "Swan" eagle!!
My mom and I had a spa day in St. George! It was SOOOO wonderful!
My dad was taking our pictures haha. We were supposed to be serious and look away. I didn't :]
Next up on the List:
Our new member of our family! We got a puppy! After me being gone and Chris being all by himself we decided it would be best to buy a pup. We were both missing the Max and Scottie so much so we got Moegly! He is a very furry miniature schnauzer, and a very sweet pup! We got him the same week as when my mom came out for the week. She aproved of her newest grandpup. Of course I didn't get one picture!
He lays so funny! He also loves his teddy bear :] We love him!
Third on the agenda:
Halloween! We have had a very fun Halloween (and it's not even Halloween yet!). Last weekend we went to a Halloween party. As you can see in the picture below we were pirates again! Haha
We also had our own Halloween party with a couple of friends. We had food, the wii dance, and catch phrase. Moegly was the talk of the night haha.
Happy Halloween everyone!!!
Next up, I made a million english muffins...not smart...took me four hourse!! Not again. They taste good though :]
Also we got a calling! We are primary teachers for the 8-11 year olds. Wish us luck, our first week was the primary program!!
Other than that we are just working like crazy and very busy!!
