Very Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is a lot like Thanksgiving dinner. You work really hard to prepare everything and it's over in what seems like 10 seconds! We had a great Christmas this year! Don't worry Santa didn't forget where our house was :) We also had a great time at the Phillips' Family party in Morgan. We had tons of food and lots of fun! We went sledding in the dark and I felt like a kid again! I definitely need to do it again soon!

And now it's time to take all my hard work down... probably my least favorite part about the Holidays! Taking down the decorations! Would you all laugh at me behind my back if I just leave them up year-round?!

My latest craft :)

A Little Winter Fun!!

Chase and I braved the snowy roads last Saturday and went to Salt Lake. We met up with the Jaques' and ice skated at the Gallivan Center and had dinner at The Melting Pot! It was so much fun! We had a great weekend!!

Another craft I made for a Christmas gift this year. Is it bad when you really want to keep what you make for other people?!

Thanksgiving in Idaho

Chase and I had a great Thanksgiving break in Idaho with my side of the family!! There was always something going on, it made the days go by way to quickly. The dinner was delicious and as always took way longer to prepare than to scarf down!! I guess that is how it goes though! The girls braved the crowds and headed shopping on Black Friday!! It was actually a lot of fun, and I had a great time. I think that it works out better if you go with no real plans of actually buying anything, because then you can't really be let down! I ended up purchasing a video camera and some stuff for the nieces b-days that are coming up! So I was a winner!!
I took Chase to the one of the many things Rupert does to celebrate the holidays. Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, Santa comes to the town square to turn on the christmas lights. It is a huge deal and there is fireworks too!! I forgot how much I miss the small town things like that! I think Chase had a good time and was impressed at how many people come out to support the event!

Chase did a lot of shooting with the boys, including clay pigeons and us girls even went up and gave it a whirl. Let's just say, I am not a good aim!! We also got to spend lots of time with our neice and nephew on the Cook side!! That was my favorite part! Makell was so much fun to play with and she is sure becoming a little spit fire!! And baby Tye is growing sooo fast!! He is the cutest little man ever!!
