Ok... so I thought I would be able to blog more since I'm out of school... but Chirstmas season is BUSY!!! hahaha. But SO fun!

I want to tell you all about it, but my computer is being LAME and won't let me upload pictures and I need the pictures to tell you about the happenings lately. So there will have to be a wait until I'm able to get the pictures up (Which will HOPEFULLY be soon! :D) But untill then... Have a great holiday and I hope you hear from me before then. haha.

I hope your holidays are as great as mine! :)

Thanksgiving and Gearing Up!

The day before Thanksgiving, I had a Pie Making Party with my mom, sister, and Stink! :)

Stinko played the piano for me when I first got there and he is like a PRO now!!! :D haha.

Rusten is such a cute little brother!! :)


Ya... Ty and Aust just sat there as we baked! haha.

We made 6 different kinds of pie, but you will see those later in the post! :D


That night, Rusten stayed the night at our house! :)

And Thanksgiving day, before we were off to my mom's for din din, we played a little DANCE CENTRAL!! :D


Well we got there and for an appetizer we had a peanut butter cheeseball and a normal one, and as you can tell from this picture, they were a HUGE hit! :D

So this turkey was so confusing! haha. My mom had Tyler and I help her pour the liquids in that pot next to it, but we didn't get what she was telling us to do until we were in the middle of it! haha. It was great! :)

Here's the cute & YUMMY set up:

{The pepper was colorful!! :)}

My mom's brother and sister and their families came up for Thanksgiving and it was so fun! Because usually we go to Utah or something, but they came here this time! :D

{MMM... My husband is SEXY!! That's right... you heard me! :) haha.}

My cousin has two CUTE little girls and I loved trying to make Olivia smile and Gracie make a roll! :)


{Lemon Merigue, Caramel Apple, Banana Cream, Coconut Cream, German Chocolate, and Pumpkin!}
Here's my plate! :) Aust had to finish it off when the boys and him got back from hunting! :)

Saturday we went to The Forgotten Carols and afterwards went to Orange Leaf... Which is my favorite!! SERIOUSLY! If you haven't gone... you NEED to!! :D

Then we went on a double with Austin's best friend Kyle, and his girlyfriend Justine! :)

We went spotlighting and then went to the SNAKE PIT!!!

It was freaky!

And there was a SNAKE!! EWWW!!

Then I found these Reese's and I want them for a stocking stuffer!!! THEY. LOOK. AMAZING!!! :D 1 pound of chocolate, peanut butter goodness... mm..mmm...mmmm!! :D

For Christmas Season I made this wreath!!!


You just take a hanger and put ornaments on it and then hang it with ribbon! :D

OH.... and we went BLACK FRIDAY shopping!! :) It was a blast!

We went at 2 in the morning and we were done by 8 in the morning!

And we got a few things online too!! There was WAY better deals online! :D

Well after we came out of Home Depot we got some breakfast sandwiches! :D

We thought they were so good, that a few days later, we made our own kind! :D

Then for a Sunday dinner I made BBQ Shreded Chicken, Fries, Applesauce, and Potato Salad!! :D It was DELISH and really easy!! :)

Then I got a facial done from Mary Kay and I bought this Foundation Primer!! :)

It feels like you are rubbing like Silky AIR on your face!! It's awesome! :) I even made Austin try it! :) hahahah. Well not the facial, but the primer! :)

Then Austin's grandma gave us a Christmas Tree, PRE-LIT!! And we love it! :) I decorated it the other day and I have a few decorations around the house, but There aren't many, so the tree is the biggest, so I took a picture of that! :D

Next week is finals week, and this week and next week we've been having presentations in my english class and these boys did theirs on how beards should be allowed on the BYUI campus.... so they handed out these beards and had us wear them during their presentation!! hahahaha.

Austin calls this the Lumberjack Smile! haha. :)

Well I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, cause I know I did!! :) It was great spending time with family! :)

Have a great weekend! :)


P.S. Tomorrow Austin turns the big double 2!!! haha. I'll be posting about his parties hopefully monday! :D haha.

P.S.S. Make sure you check out my brother's mission blog to see how he's doing! :D click here to see.

Novembre!! hahha. :)

Well November is almost over and this is my only post so far!! AHH!! haha. Well I didn't take pictures of everything I did... DANG IT! But I took pictures of a few things I did! :)

Kathryn, my MIL (mother-in-law), had a birthday! :D So we had lots of cake to celebrate! :) To read about her birthday go here!

This is the cake I made for her birthday!

It was a strawberry cake and it was DELISH!! :D

There was a little bit left over, so I brought it home to my fridge.

Well a few days after, Aust and I had a cake fight with this lovely cake!

We shoved each others faces in the cake and it was SO FUN!!

Austin's friend was over and took videos, but I don't have them... DANG IT! They are really funny!

But it's like the cake fight we never had at our reception since I was sick at my reception! hahaha. So This made up for that, even though only 1 person was there to witness it! haha. OH MAN!! Good times! :D

Then also in November, Austin and I took a road trip to Kilgore to check out their farm! haha.

Well it started snowing once we got there and by the time we were on our way home, it looked like a blizzard! ha.

It was fun seeing the pretty rivers, the long roads, the middle of nowhere (I'm serious folks! If you think Terreton is the middle of nowhere, go to Kilgore! You'll have a whole new perspective on the middle of nowhere! hahaha.), random road signs, funny looking animals that blend in with the snow, cows, houses in the middle of nowhere, hunters on the one way bridge, etc! :D Here are pictures for you to enjoy!

(we thought this bridge was gonna break if we drove across it! haha)

So when we were on our way home... this is what we drove up to!

A guy lost control on the ice and slid and rolled his truck! But he was totally fine which was good!! But Aust and I stopped and said a little prayer so we would drive safe after that! haha.

Another November experience.. haha. We went to Sandpiper, which is weird because the last time I went there was with the Egbert's too, and it was in November! haha. :)

Well it was SUPER yummy and Aust got a Prime Rib and it was massive! Check it out:

That is his finger!! It was as tall as his finger!!

Then Sheena's best friend, and our good family friend Chelsi got married! :D

Tuesday the 8th, she went through the temple, so Sheen and I went!

Then November 11th (11/11/11) She got married and she looked GORGEOUS! :) I didn't havee my camera, so I didn't get a picture of Chelsi or Aust and I, but my sister did have her camera, so this is a picture of us after Chelsi got married! :D

Well Aust and I were on our way to her reception and we passed this!

I am SO doing this when Andy comes home!! haha. :D

It was in front of the people's house, and they were inside and there was a huge window in the front of their house, so they could totally see us, and they were probably like, Uhh.. what are those people doing in our driveway? hahaha!

I don't know if you've been to the playmill... but if you have, you know what Hiedi's Fudge is... Well at Chelsi's reception, there was Hiedi's Fudge!! IT was SO SO SO good! :D

The other day I had cupcakes, and I didn't know what to do with them, so I made CUPCAKE SHAKES!!! They were yummy! I will be making those more often! :D

Also, We went on a triple date and ate at Texas Roadhouse, then looked at CD World where I got a Shanendoah CD!! OH YA!! They are a really old band, but they are great! And my parents loved them! Their song was one of them! :) Well my mom's song that my dad dedicated to her! ahhaha. :) Our family loves that band! :D Then we went to the movie Jack and Jill.. hahah. IT was like a Napolean Dynamite... it made no sense and had no reason! hahaha. Now Aust and I always quote from it... "I'm Keeding!!" hahha.

Another thing I did this month was make a fall centerpiece thing!! :D

Then remember the picture of the Merry Chirstmas Elder that was in my last post because we were sending his them for Christmas?? Well we took one of Beezly! haha.

Also, November 17th was the midnight premeir of BREAKING DAWN PART 1!! :D Austin and I went to it and we got great seats and we only got there like 10 minutes beofre it started!! OH YA!! haha. :D Now next November needs to come so we can go to the 2nd part of Breaking Dawn :) haha. And while we were watching it, there were SO many previews that looked SO good that I Want to see the movies now! haha. :)

Then Aust and I got Jamba Juices before it! :) I got Apple Cinnamon Cheer! OH MY GOODNESS!! IT tasted exactly like the smell of Apple Cinnamon Cheer. haha. And it also kinda tasted like an Apple Pie!! IT. WAS. DELICIOUS!! Go get it if you haven't already!! :D

Last item of Business.... I got all my display on my red wall in my dining room DONE!! :D haha. YAY!! :D

What do you think??

Well I am so excited for Thanksgiving!

My family from Utah is coming up, and today we're having a pie making party!! OH YA!! haha.

I am so thankful for my family!

I am thankful for my hubby!

I am SO thankful for the break from school!! Only 2 1/2 weeks of school days left this semester!! WOOHOO!!!
