23 Years and Counting :]

Happy me!

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.

 My mom bought me a Fudge kit.  We tried to make turned out a little chunky, but good!

 Making Fudge with the crazy hair dog!


We also made Sugar Cookies!
 Everyone helped!

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 were so glad that they came out!!

Attempted Family pictures...

While we were in Kanab, we attempted family pictures.  It would have turned out perfect if my camera hadn't broke...My wonderful camera is broken.  These pictures are not my best but a few turned out.

Happy Gobble Gobble Day!
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!
