Christmas 2011

This year was an exciting one!
A: Michael had Christmas Eve off for the first time since we've been together basically.
B: We spent the night at my parents house. It was just like old times and Michael was such a trooper hanging out with all the girls!
We had a great Christmas!
It all started with family parties...

Then Christmas Eve was a blast hanging with my sisters like old times...

Our Christmas came a little early though...
It's a BLAST!
Christmas Day was a busy one. We of course started with my family opening presents and breakfast...

After breakfast we went to Michael's parents to open presents...

After that we went back to my mom's house to go to their ward for their Christmas program. It was beautiful.
After that, we went straight to Logan for lunch. (I know, hard to believe that by this time it's only LUNCH!)
(no pictures from there though)
Then we went back to his parents house for dinner! We played wii, ate a delicious dinner, and had a great time!
(no pictures from there either)
 Of course, I took a TON more pictures you can see them on my FB page!
Hope everyone had a merry Christmas!

Worst Week Ever

Last week was probably the worst week of my life.
A trip to the hospital, a family member going through something incredibly diffifult and sick puppies, made up my week.
And to top the week off, we lost one of the puppies.
The other two seemed to get a little bug where they didn't want to eat but they got over it in a day or two so when the third got it, we figured he would also just get over it.
But he got really really bad. Wouldn't eat. Wouldn't drink. Wouldn't even move.
Friday night we gave him a bath and let him sleep in our bathroom.
Saturday morning was the worst morning.
I actually miss his 6:00 a.m barking.

RIP Oakland (right)

Best Nephew Ever

Michael and I are so lucky we're so close to our nephew!
The other day he was over and we were watchin football so I thought I'd take a pic of us.
Then he'd say, "Let's do it again" or "Let's take a funny one"
So we did. Again and again.

Thanksgiving 2011

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year!
Unfortunately Michael works every year on Thanksgiving, and this year was the Hanks' turn which is a 2 hour drive. So, Michael couldn't come with.
I had such a great time with my family, I just miss him!

My cousin, and one of my best friends Tish
Tish's daughter Laura

We played Air Hockey while waiting for the
feast to be done.

My Uncle Ned and new Aunt Olesya
After we all ate, we all crafted!

The great thing is they all turned out different!
This is my cousin Rachelle's
Tish with hers

I'm really picky when it comes to my crafts, so I took mine home to sand it before I put it together..
Here's mine!

Oh by the way, did you all see the Turkey I made too?!


Breaking Dawn Premiere

Every year yes, every year, my sisters and I go to the Twilight midnight showing.
This year Jamie wasn't able to join us because she lives an hour and a half away, but my cousin Chelsey came instead!
We had a blast! (as always)
We stuck to our tradition and met Jessie and her sisters at Wingers for Asphault Pie then headed to the movie and sat with them there!
Thanks for the great night girls!

Do you feel like crying today?

Well neither did I!
But, this music video didn't care, I cried anyway!
First of all, I have loved this song ever since we got the CD when it first came out, and I was glad it was on the radio because I think everyone should love this song!
I didn't know they would twist it to be so sad!
But the video is good, SO good!
Check it out, here's Jason Aldean's video "Tattoos On This Town"

I know, right!
Ok, here's a couple more new videos of songs I love to help cheer you up after that amazing video.

Chris Young: "You"

Steel Magnolia: "Bulletproof"

Jodi Turned 20!

Wow I cannot believe Jodi is 20!!!

My mom made this delicious cake that I decorated!

Kate gave her the second(?) book of the
Hunger Games series
My mom gave her some new jeans
My dad got her a Wal-Mart gift card so she
could buy the Breaking dawn soundtrack
when it comes out.
My grandma got her this cute bracelet
Not sure what's with her face though haha
Michael and I got her the best gift:
The Eclipse board game!
My mom made a DELICIOUS dinner of chicken alfredo and broccoli. But...Jodi found out that mom forgot the breadsticks...

This is the "No Breadsticks?" look

Hope it was a great one!
