Thanksgiving Weekend 2009

Thanksgiving weekend was busy but oh so much fun. Started with Wednesday night when I got home from work Brindi was watching Miss Mia and we decided to go to Carter's to see if they had anymore Thanksgiving clothes for her. We walked in they had her size in this super cute outfit and it was 75% off!!! I was so excited.

Thursday morning we woke up and got ready to go to Aunt Shari's in Richmond, UT. We took these cute pictures of her on the couch before we left, the bow/flower we got from Holly and Trent, thanks for it! We got there safely. We were in charge of the relish tray and I also brought a salad. Kade made his mom's famous dip and it was a hit! I also made Pear salad, a recipe from Brook that I have grown to love and now take to everything! We had a wonderful dinner with my grandparents and all my cousins were home Travis, Derek, Taylor, Emily, and Zac in spirit! My dad came as well, so nice to have my parents be friends now makes holidays so much more enjoyable. My mom made her famous pumpkin roll and it was heavenly. Miss Mia slept through dinner and then entertained us after. Ryan and Lola got to our house at about 8:30 that night poor Lola had to work :( We missed them but had fun when they got there.

Friday I had to work and so did Kade. That night we went to a dinner at Haggerman's, Kade's cousin owns it. They were decorating the restaurant for Christmas and we ate dinner. It was fun to visit with everyone on his dad's side. We got the 4 generation pictures with both sides of our family we are so lucky that our grandparents are still alive. Ryan and Lola came with us that night too. Then we went back to our house. Mia loved chewing on the Pepsi can she was laughing so hard at it with Abigail!

Then Saturday Kade and I had to work, thank you Lola for watching Miss Mia then we had a mexican feast for the game. My dad came and cooked some yummy food! As you know we were not thrilled with the outcome but congrats to BYU for winning. Atleast the Jazz beat the Trailblazers that night!

Sunday afternoon my mom and Emily drove down to have dinner with us. Kade made his famous dutch oven it was so good! We visited, ate good food and played with Mia. She is the most entertaining little girl we just love her. Grandma fed her dinner, green beans and rice cereal. She loves eating food and does such an awesome job eating! Everyone once in a while you can get Kade to take a cute picture and here it is with Emily :)

I am thankful for so many things this year. First of all for my amazing daughter I don't know what my life would be like without her she has changed me in so many ways for the better and has made our lives so much better. Secondly for Kade he is an amazing husband and father and loves us so much. He has never complained once about doing something for Mia he loves her more than anything and takes care of us so well. Thirdly I am grateful for the wonderful family that I was born into. I have learned so much through the experiences that I have gone through and they have changed the person that I am today for the better. I would not change anything in my life. I am grateful that my parents are friends and I am thankful for Mia because she is the reason that they are the friends they are today. I am grateful for loving brothers who would do anything for me and my family. I am also grateful for Kade's family they have been so helpful with Mia and it gives me the opportunity to go to work everyday without having to leave her in day care while I am at work. It gives me so much comfort knowing that she is with her family and cousins. I am thankful for my both my jobs and for Kade's jobs we are so blessed to be able to have them. Thanks to all my friends who have been there for me this year and during my life we have the best friends in the world and we love you all!

Utes & Disney

We are very blessed to have such awesome people in our lives! We were given Disney on Ice tickets and Ute football tickets. The Disney on Ice tickets
were from my dad, thanks dad! It was Princess Wishes on ice. It was fun to see all of the little girls dressed up as their favorite princess. Tinkerbell was awesome and Bell of course was my favorite. We love Disney, for those of you who don't know I worked at Disney World with my Joy about 5 years ago on the college program. It was the best thing I ever did and we had an awesome time working there. I have been obsessed with Disney ever since. Mia was so good she sat and watched for the first two hours then she was ready for a bottle, then sat up and finished the show.

I have the privilege of putting in a lottery at work to receive Ute football tickets for every game. I have been lucky enough to get tickets to every game (Thanks Salt Lake County). We have had a great time going. We decided to take Adam & Hayley Peterson with us this last time. Hayley is a good sport to go with us since she is a BYU fan, thanks Hayley! We went to the game and it was great they won! Then we went to Fridays for dinner I know big shocker, as most of you know this is my favorite restaurant. Hayley and Adam showed us that we could order desert first, it was great. Mia was awesome and slept most of the game. She is a huge blessing in our lives we are so lucky to have her!

October 2009

October is my favorite month I look forward to it every year as does Kade but for two very different reasons. I love the weather, the perfect jacket weather, the leaves crunching under my feet as I walk, the memories of high school soccer, and last but not least HALLOWEEN! I love to dress up, the candy, carving pumpkins, the color orange, homemade rootbeer, The World Series, I could go on and on. Kade however looks forward to October because its hunting season. Hunting is so important that we couldn't get married in October and I have also been forbidden to have a baby in October haha. Last year was when we told everyone we were expecting on Halloween and it was so much fun. This year was especially fun because we got to dress up our little angel. Never thought having a girl would be so fun, I absolutely love it. She is the best thing that ever happened to us. Go Yankees as I sit here watching the 6th game! Our pumpkins were as follows: Mia's says Tink with a star since she was our little Tinkerbell. I cleaned it out and Kade carved it, Dustin's was the Yankees :), mine was just a regular pumpkin face, and Kade's was of course a Jeep going up a hill in Moab. My favorite part of carving is the cleaning out of the pumpkins. We went to a ReAL game as well, and they won their first playoff game! It is also one of my best friends birthday, Abigail Wilson turned 24 and we went to.... Costa Vida shocking! Here are some of the fun things we did in October.
