Christmas has come and gone...

Well, Christmas came and now it's gone. Sorry, we dont have more exciting pictures. Overall, our Christmas turned out pretty good. We spent time with our families and finally got to give all those presents that we have been dying to give. Now we have a whole year before we get to do it all over again. :)

New Polls

So me and Troy were talking about how lame we are when it comes to our TV watching. All we ever want to watch are King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, and the Discovery Channel. Does this mean that we are boring and behind the times when it comes to the latest and greatest TV shows? Let's let you all decide...
Also, since it is the Christmas season, let's decide what we like most about Christmas, other than the true meaning, of course! :)

Pre-Christmas weekend

We had a really weekend with Scott and Lori and the girls. They came down to celebrate Christmas with us a week early since we will be staying in Salt Lake to spend Christmas with my family this year. It was such a great weekend, but it always seems to go too fast. Luckily they got here pretty early Friday night. We exchanged Christmas gifts and we definately got the better end of that deal. Scott and Lori always give the BEST gifts! This year they got us...So we spent the rest of the night eating ourselves sick and playing Guitar Hero III. Saturday the girls and Matt went to the CRAZY BUSY mall and the boys...well...they did whatever it is that they do. The highlight of that afternoon was definately my 4 PAIRS OF SHOES FOR ONLY $19 at Forever Young...Later that night we met my sisters' families for dinner at Sizzler and then met Troy's brothers at Temple Square to see the Christmas lights. It is always a highlight to spend the weekend with Scott's family since they are so much fun and we hardly get to see them. We always have tons of laughs and I am growing to like all of them more and more everytime I see them. Although I'm convinced that Marissa is possessed by the devil after seeing the fiery red eyes she has in every picture we took.

I just love my baby, Sariah

I am just minding my business working this morning and I hear noises from the living room that sounds like dogs playing. They arent supposed to play in the house so I walk in there to tell them NO and this is what I see....

I was wrapping Christmas presents last night and had left the stuff out in the living room. Apparently Sariah wanted to give wrapping a try. I couldnt be mad at her b/c she is just so darn cute! I really don't think there is a sweeter dog in the entire world.

Spending the weekend with Aunt Dawn Dawn and Uncle Troy

We had such a fun weekend, we got to spend alot of time with our nieces and nephews. We had a sleepover at our house on Friday night. Saturday we went sledding, decorated Christmas ornaments, and then Tutu and Aunt Helen came over and delivered Christmas presents to all of the kids. We really had a fun time with everyone and it was especially nice to spend quality time with my brother's girls, Coral and Rachel. We don't get to see them as much as the other kids in the family and it was so fun to get to interact with them and see their sweet personality. It was a long day Saturday full of the challenges of taking care of 4 kids when I am used to 0, but it was definately worth it. I have the best nieces and nephews in the entire world!

While we are on the subject...

...of solving mine and Troy's disagreements, I think you guys could definately help with this one so I have added another poll. Don't let me down...

What do you think?

I heard the name Parker a few days ago and I just really like it! Well, I like enough that I wrote it down so I wouldn't forget it. I happened to have written it on my notepad at work so I have been seeing it quite often over the past couple days and I just thought I would poll all of you to see what everyone else thinks. So, go ahead and vote! I think these polls are fun and they could be a fun way to settle some of mine and Troy's disagreements about stupid stuff from time to time, so maybe I will make a regular thing of it...who knows? Happy polling...

Happy Anniversary

We had the best anniversary weekend! It started Friday night when I gave Troy his gift and he told me what we would be doing the next day. I gave Troy a DVD photo montage of our entire lives up until now. Thanks to my bro in law, Ryan and his MAC it looks like a professional video set to music and everything. I really appreciate all the hard work he put into it! And Troy surprised me with a day of skiing, a 60 minute massage, and a night at the Red Moose Lodge in Eden, UT. It was so much fun! I can finally say that I am a skiier now and I can't wait until the next time we are able to go again. My massage was absolutely wonderful! Troy thought it would fulfill my desire to have one, but now all it has done is make me want to get them ALL THE TIME!! The Lodge was really cool and it was so relaxing to just sit in the hot tub and take it easy for a night. We were both so sad for the day to end. I'm so lucky to have a husband who puts so much effort into planning fun things like that, I so excited for all of the anniversaries that we have ahead of us.
