Well Jeremy just took a trip to Vegas in Feb. for The World of Concrete, then he had to go back for a class on concrete contertops. So I told him I get to go this time. I'm so glad we have wonderful friends here that were willing to help out with the girls so that I was able to go. I had a wonderful week enjoying old friends, eating yummy food, manicure and pedicure, shopping and oh yeah more shopping. Thanks Erin for putting up with me all week and being my taxi, love ya! We missed the girls a ton but the break was much needed, now back to the real world. Okay that was alot to post, not that I think anyone wants to read it but it helps me to remember. So hopefully it won't be another 6 months til I post again, wish me luck!


The end of December we headed to Lehi, UT to have Aubrey's baptism there. I can't believe was have an 8 year old already, man that makes me feel old. It was on the 2nd of Jan. It was such a special day. We are so grateful to those who were able to make the trip and be there. Aubrey is such a sweet, special girl with a beautiful testimony of the gospel. We are so thankful she is part of our family. We love you Aubrey!

After we got home we had her birthday party we went and saw Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 we had 13 kids including ours. It was a cute movie and Aubrey had a great party.

Aubrey was the lead in her school christmas play and even had a solo, she did amazing!

What can I say? I absolutely love Christmas!! We stayed in town and had the Burke's, the Fisher's and the missionaries over for dinner Christmas Eve. I planned a little program sining songs, acting out the Nativity, and writing down our gift to Jesus for the year and putting it in a white stocking, the kids loved it. We opened our christmas eve jammies, put out cookies and waited for santa's arrival. We opened presents Christmas morning, had omlet's and monkey bread for breakfast then watched the parade. The excitment for the girls was getting the first american girl dolls. Later that day we attempted our Christmas Day movie but due to the blizzard the theater was closed but the bowling alley was open so off we went. Then we had our traditional dinner, out for Chinese and it was yummy.

In November, to our families dismay, we decided to go to Minneapolis for Thanksgiving with our friends the Fishers. We got there Wednesday night. On Thursday, Thanksgiving, we went and did our annual Thanksgiving Day movie and saw Planet 51 and then headed to Perkins for a turkey dinner :) I enjoyed not having to cook or clean anything up. Then Black Friday which was the next day, (and I must say one of my favorite days of the year) started at 11:00pm the night before at Toys R Us. Then we came back slept til 3:00 and headed out for the rest of the day to shop. That night we went and saw a christmas parade that they do through downtown, it was pretty cute and the kids loved it. Saturday was reserved for Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. We had a blast!! Then Sunday, we checked out of the hotel and dropped the guys off at the Chicago Bears vs. Minneapolis Vikings, and headed back to the mall. We did a little more shopping and took the kids to see Old Dogs. We had a wonderful time we had!! We can't wait to go back.
