I'm Thankful for Y.O.U.

Thanksgiving was fun and full of great memories this year. Every holiday is ten times better with a little one around. I love our tradition of going out to a movie, coming back to my Aunt Becky's and munching on snacks while dinner is being prepared. Making a Christmas craft, and then finally enjoying the fruits of our (well I should say Becky and my Mom's) labor. We go around the table and say what we are thankful for, talk about funny stories, and just enjoy the company of the ones we love. Then it's time for another movie (this time more cuddled up) and afterward we finish the night off eating some homemade pies.

This year I am so very thankful for having so many people who love me. I feel so blessed to have a loving family, wonderful friends, a husband who is my best friend, and a daughter who gives me joy everyday.
I love you all!

I really don't think she can get any cuter.

The girls making our Christmas crafts.

It weighed more than Taryn.

Black Friday, AKA Girls Gone Wild!

This was my first year going out in the wee hours of the morning for the Black Friday madness. Let me just say it was pure F.U.N! We're starting a new tradition, and you gotta have the will power to stay up from 12am to 7am if you wanna join our crew next year. Here's a little peek into our super crazy night.

In the red

Saturday was all RED for us!

Friday night Robbie brought me home RED roses.

I made cookies with RED frosting.

We stood out in our red attire at Robbie's Aunt and Uncles house
(everyone there was a BYU fan.)
That's too bad...because our RED team won

Grandma with the grand kids.
(One was dressed appropriately)

All in honor of the UTES!!!
