Thanksgiving was wonderful - so much food, so much time with family, and plenty of relaxing. We also happen to have loads of Yellow Curry left over... ya know... if anyone wants to come over.

I can't believe that tomorrow is December... Where did this year go? It's gonna be a busy month that's for sure, we've got some photo shoots (including a wedding!) and of course bunches of family parties and activities!

Oh how I love Christmas!

We put up our decorations for this year. We don't have a ton, but I still love what we have! Observe:

Our Lights! Love that we have a tree outside to decorate!

Our little Christmas Tree. :)

On top of the TV.

Our Nativity Sets. The one of the right is our newest one
I love it so much!


Snowman and Braedon eating Breakfast. :)
Anywho. Life is good!

Loves and hugs Internets!




I'm excited that tomorrow is Thanksgiving (See excitement above) for many reasons, here are some:

- Food. Don't worry that we have 3 different Thanksgiving meals to attend this year. It's going to be fat festive!

- Family. I love spending time with family. Nuff said.

- NO WORK. Oh man - I think everyone can agree that no matter how much they may love their job, a break (and a paid break at that) is always more then welcome.

- Christmas! Once Thanksgiving is over it's like something clicks in my head making me finally realize how close Christmas really is. Plus I now feel that I can decorate, listen to Christmas music and all that good stuff. :)

- Sleeping in! Oh the joys of not having to wake up by alarm but when my body actually wants to - which granted is usually around 7:30 or 8:00 - but at least it's more natural then my phone ringing in my ear!

Sigh. So excited. :)

In other news:

- My tooth is out! It came out fairly quickly and easily - I didn't feel a thing (of course that was more due to the 6 (SIX!) shots I was given before hand). Observe this expensive uselessness:
I found out that I might be able to get 40-60 bucks for that crown!

- Now that you got to see that lovely photo - let's end on some cuteness. Look how big these three are getting!

Noah - Loooove the vest.

Cute Ari. :)

Baby C!


C is good at making her own applesauce. ;)

Ari has some weird fascination with Taylor's hands... this was
her excitement at him snapping. So cute. :)

The three playing at Grandma's and Grandpa's!

Those girls know how to MOVE now! 

Hence why they are almost always blurry on my camera phone.

Anywho. Life is good and I can't wait for the weekend. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


Update the Update.

I know I've been slacking lately - so here's the update.

- My car has been appraised and a check to fix it is coming my way. Even though I think the appraiser low balled the price, I'm still hoping I'm wrong and will somehow get extra cash out of all of this.

- The tooth is coming out. Yup. Hello, I'm 23 and getting a tooth pulled. La sigh. In all honestly Braedon and I feel really good about going this route then some of the other options we had. You know what the best part is? Extractions are only 27 bucks! Woot! (Of course the implant and possible bone graft is around 2500... but I'm choosing to ignore that fact at the moment).

- I'm still loving being an aunt. Saturday we went up to my parents house to watch the Utah game (go Utes!), and it was so much fun to spend time with the family, catch up, and of course play with my cute nieces (Noah unfortunately wasn't there). I'm loving getting to know these cute little girls so much more each time I see them, they both have such amazing and wonderful personalities. Plus the fact that they actually smile when they see me just makes my heart so happy. Sigh. So adorable, so cute, so fun. :)

- Speaking of family - I just want to give another shout out for mine. I love spending time with my family so much, I always leave them feeling happy, uplifted, and more at peace. They are such wonderful and good people. :)

- Uhhh, Thanksgiving is next week. Does anyone else find this extremely insane?

- I have a house this Holiday season. I can decorate inside and out, however I want! Which will include as much twinkle lights as possible. (But don't worry - only after Thanksgiving, of course).

- In case you didn't know. November is the month of not just thanksgiving, but of not shaving. You know I'm participating in that and currently have legs that look like they belong in the stone-age. Braedon too has a nice little 'stache going on. Yup, we're classsssy.

- Currently at work I have this picture as my desktop. It warms my heart every time I look at it. How'd I get so lucky to have such an amazing husband?
Leaving our Reception at the end of our Wedding Day. :)

Life is good. :)
