After Christmas Fun

It was crazy how much snow we got in such little time! We couldn't believe our eyes! The boys of course got this brilliant idea that they wanted to build an snow fort or igloo type thing with all the snow we had gotten. So after a couple nights of shoveling snow off of the lawn and any other places they could get snow they made this BIG mound. It seriously is much bigger in person!! They have got the snow packed down really good and are waiting to begin to dig out the inside. It will be interesting to see how long it will hold. But it has kept them busy and they've had a lot of fun doing it:) I'll post more pictures once they have the inside carved out!




Yes, I know some of these are kind of random but I got a new Camera for Christmas from Brian, and I am so excited to be using it and I love taking pictures!

Christmas

It's crazy how quick the Holidays come and go! This year for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we were running all over, just so we could spend time with the ones we love!:) It was kind of hectic and tiring but it was all worth it! Even if it ment we had to drive in the snow. We just wanted to say...

Work Christmas Parties

Around this time of year it's nice when Companies do work Christmas Parties, especially if you get some good prizes out of it!
On December 11 The Arbiter.net, Brian's work, had their annual Christmas party at Cowboy Grub. They bought dinner and dessert for all employees and their dates. After dinner they had the waitresses come in and judge all of the "Ugly Sweaters" to see who would win the prize. Most of the Employees wore their ugly sweaters and yes I will have to say some of them were Very UGLY!! After that they had a game for everyone to play. They gave every participant a gift bag with something in it, but you couldn't open it until the end...so we had no idea what was inside. At the end of the game everyone opened the gifts, everyone got a type of candy or food and a gift card to various places.
On December 13 Arrowhead Dental Lab, the company I work for, had their Christmas Party at The Show Barn at Thanksgiving Point. They served dinner, had pictures, a game that included the entire audience and then raffled off the rest of the door prizes for all of the gift cards. I won a gift card to Asian Star...mmm I love that place. They also had another drawing for an "Enchanted Evening". Tickets were only $3 and all proceeds went to a Charitey. I bought a ticket thinking it would be really cool if I won and if not the money went to a good cause. To my surprise they called my name! I was very excited, it's dinner for 2 to La Caille and a gift card to the movies. I've never been and can't wait to go!:)
We enjoyed both parties! Thanks to everyone who made it happen!
Here are a couple photos from work:

Christmas is Coming!!

Hurry and put up the Christmas tree, lights, and decorations! Get all your shopping done, along with all of the other thousands of other people doing the same. Lol it's funny how so many people wait til the last minute to go buy gifts, but in the end they get a gift for everyone they needed to buy for:) Good luck to everyone who still has shopping left to do! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and travels safely to all their destinations they need to go!
Take this Christmas Icon

Twilight!

I can't believe I waited this long to go and see the movie! I was really kind of nervous about seeing it because I LOVE the books so much, I didn't want to ruin them. That's why I can't get myself to finish the 4th book lol I'm not ready for it to end:( But Any Who...Another thing that has held me back were the mixed reviews I kept getting from everyone. Yes, I know everyone has their own opinions and I like to hear them...so I had to go see the movie myself and get my own opinion. I am so glad we went and saw it!!! I know not everything in the movie matches the books perfectly, but they did a pretty good trying. I'm glad I read the books before seeing the movie because then I have my own image of what I feel like the characters look like. It was so worth it:) I got so into the movie that I didn't realize it was time for it to stop because that's all the first book reviled. Now I want to re-read the books all over, and go see the movie again! But I have to wait until Winter Break Arrives and then I will be reading. To my surprise Brian didn't mind Twilight and actually enjoyed it, which made me happy that it wasn't like another chick flick movie for him. I can't wait for the next Twilight movie!! They better hurry and get it filmed and out in theaters!! Lol like that ever happens...but all you can do is wish.
Thanks To Brian, Preston, Jennifer, Lacey, and Stew for a fun evening:)

Count Down Until Christmas!

It's getting closer and closer to Christmas everyday!!! The only problem is.... there is NO Snow:( "What the is the problem?" Without snow it doesn't feel like it's even December. With snow it puts a little Christmas cheer in the air and everyone gets into it. Even if we were to get a little snow in the valley and then tons in the Mountains it would be awesome!! We need snow ASAP so we can use our snowboarding passes to Brighton. Hopefully the weather man will change his forecast within the next week so we can go boarding! :)

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Hope you all have a great Turkey Dinner:)

That's always the best part about it, oh and not to mention the shopping that takes place the Day After Thanksgiving:) This year for Thanksgiving Brian and I split the day between our families, just so we could spend time with them both:) For my side of the family we went to my Grandma's house. My Grandma made Turkey Dinner and then after dinner we played Thanksgiving Bingo. It's a fun tradition my Grandma started. After that we went over to Brian's side of the family. We had a 2nd Turkey Dinner at his Step-Dad's Parents house. Oh man were we full after that!!! I felt like I was a stuffed turkey getting ready to be cooked for Thanksgiving LOL. Then after that we had dessert, which Jennifer makes a really yummy pumpkin dessert. So yummy I'm not quite sure how to explain it. This Thanksgiving ended up being a very nice day, not only spending time with the ones you love but to eating these great meals. Thanks Everyone!!

Metallica Concert!

Yes, you read the title right...Lol we went to the Metallica Concert on Monday November 3 and we had a blast! The concert started at 7 and was held at the Energy Solutions Arena Downtown. Metallica is one of Brian's favorite bands of all times and he has been to their last couple of concerts here in Utah. It was fun to see them perform one last time since they are getting old.

This Picture was taking before we were leaving.

Car Shots

Brian, Greg, Preston, and I went for a little drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon for some sweet car shots. Some of the trees were bare with no leaves since it is the end of October, but still looked pretty sweet. Autumn is one of my favorite times of year because of the smell, weather ,and the changes of the trees. The weather was perfect, not to hot and not too cold. The White Prelude is Preston's Car, Blue Subaru is Brian's, but here are a couple of the photos we got....


Greg looks like he's floating! Lol But he's just walkingLook!! lol Here's Preston posing for the Camera again.
Say Cheese!

video
This short movie clip is funny! Even more hilarious in person, if you ask me! You will get a laugh out of it. The huge rock they are trying to get on is very slippery, that's why they seem to be slipping off.

A Little Bit About Max & Missy

MAX & MISSY
Look at these cute dogs! We decided to take some photos of them since they just got a hair cut a not too long ago. It's Max's first haircut since living with Brian's family. He use to have a cute homely look to him because he's previous hair cut wasn't the best, but now after this haircut he looks cute! Brian's family got Max August 16, 2008. The family he was living with previously had just got him a couple months prior before having to get rid of him for living conditions. Luckily Brian's family was able to give him a home. If not Max would've been taken to the Humane Society that night:/ Any Who... It's been really fun having another dog at their house even though sometimes he can have so much energy he is like a little terrorist. He keeps Missy on her feet and always going. In these Pictures they are posing for the camera because they like all the attention.

Max:



Missy:


As you can see there are more pictures of Missy than Max....that is because she can hold still longer and dosen't have to be moving 24/7 :) Lol It also helps because Missy loves having her picture taken and has had been posing for them her whole life!
Ages: -Max is about 2 years old (Brian's Family has had him for almost 2 and a half months)
- Missy is 7 years old (Brian's Family has had her since she was a little puppy)
They look like little Teddy Bears! Lol

I Love these dogs! They are so fun to be around, every time some one shows up they get so excited. Max & Missy usually bark like crazy, sometimes they will start whining, or freak out until you enter the house and then start jumping all over you like they haven't seen you in forever (even if it had only been 5 mins). If your not having the best day and you go over to their house the dogs are always right there to make you feel better or atleast help a little by putting a smile on your face.

Halloween

Happy Halloween!!
These are some pictures taken at work:
Brooke and I dressed up like witches.
Gina dressed up like a Princess.
Brenda was a "Witchy Woman".
The "Worker Bees", Holly and Julie.
There are so many more pictures from Halloween at work because so many people dress up, but I just choose a few. Throughout the day people brought their kids in to show off... here a couple pictures of Brooke and Little Mason. He's such a cutie and makes an adorable little pumpkin. I can't believe how fast he's growing. He keeps Brooke busy all the time!

Halloween Night....
Here is Brian and Preston Prepping for their scaring adventures...(Putting their make up on)
Here is Dave, Brian, Preston, and Logan. They had fun painting their faces and trying to scare kids. They would really freak you out, especially if they were the scream!


Yikes! Brian and Preston look pretty scary. I am not a big fan of clowns, I'm just glad I wasn't one of the people they tried scaring or I would've freaked out!


Hope Everyone Had a Happy Halloween!
