Thanksgiving Weekend

This year for Thanksgiving we went to my house. My mom cooked a delicious Thanksgiving meal as always. She is the BEST cook/host I know! She's just amazing. Us, my parents and my Uncle Maurice and Aunt Connie and their son TM were all there. Later, we played the Wii that had just been set up. It is SO much fun, I love it! That night my Mom and I drove over to Gunnison to watch Twilight. She hadn't seen it so she wanted to go, and I didn't mind going again. Friday afternoon we took Alli to see Santa Claus on main street and she didn't even cry! You could tell she was so scared. She didn't look up at him once, but she never cried...she's such a good little girl! This is the only picture I have, the rest of the Thanksgiving pictures are on my Dad's camera...woops!


Friday night we drove to Cedar to Josh's house. Saturday morning Josh helped his Dad finish building some dog houses he had started building for our dogs, and they are SO nice! His Dad is such a handy man so I'm glad he's there to help! And let me just say, they are HUGE!!! The dogs are going to love them and now they'll stay nice and warm for the winter. I just hope they don't chew these ones apart!
Later, we met up for lunch at Costa Vida. Afterwards, Sarah and I went back and played more Wii. It's hard to steal it away from the guys, but we managed to get some playing time in! Today was a LONG trip home. Alli wasn't feeling too well and she was in the truck from noon to about 5:30. Plus, she didn't go to sleep until 3am the night before, so I hope she gets feeling better.
Anyway, I just love the holidays. There is nothing better than eating great food, candy and desserts while spending time with family. We're lucky to have such nice families on both sides. I can't wait for Christmas!

Twilight Review


So I'm sure a lot of people will be blogging about Twilight, but oh well, here is my version! I went to it last night with Lindsay (wife of one of Josh's friends). She won tickets and got us free popcorn and drinks so we didn't have to pay a dime which was awsome!
Overall, I thought it was good but some of the acting wasn't too great, and I still don't really like the actor who played Edward. Although he did grow on me throughout the movie, I still thought they could've got someone way better. Actually, I thought Emmett should have been Edward, he is more of what I pictured Edward to look like.
Also, I didn't like how the vampires looked dead. I know vampires are supposed to be really pale but I thought they still could've looked normal, maybe a little pale looking but NOT as durastic as they looked in the movie. Most of the characters fit the picture of what I had in my head while reading the book, but some were way off! For example Carlisle, Charlie, Jacob and a couple others. It's so funny how you picture it all different when you're reading it..or at least I did. Overall I thought it was entertaining and pretty good. It wasn't what I had anticipated, but worth it.

Carrie Underwood Concert

Last night we went to Carrie Underwood! It was so much fun! She did great, and was a good singer live. My favorite part was when she brought up a little girl to sing "All American Girl" with her, it was so cute.
I gotta say that she had great style too! I pretty much loved all her outfits and jewelry, and especially her shoes!! I loved ALL her shoes, haha! Here are some pictures, sorry they're are not that great. Thanks Josh for taking me, it was a fun night! =)






This is Little Big Town, they opened for her.

Family Pictures

We got family pictures taken a few weeks ago and just got them back this weekend. We got tons of pictures on a cd with the copyright so we can print however many we want, wherever we want which will save a lot of money when it comes to printing. Plus they all came in Regular, Rusty, Antique and Black & White finishes..SO NICE! Jeremy Pexton is the photographer who took them and he did a great job.
Here are a few of them, I mean A LOT of them that aren't already on my sidebar, sorry for the picture overload! It was so hard to narrow it down to just a few- what a cute husband and daughter I have! I'm going to try and make it tradition to get them done at least once a year for our family.
