A Few Things You Might Not Know...

Did you know that...

Christian is my technical support guy for the blog, like the new music... that was all Christian. For a long time I didn't even know how to add a new post so he set up a link from an email for me. All I had to do was click. Thanks for keeping things running, C!

I hate following recipe directions. Well really I hate and hardly ever measure ingredients. I guess that is why I am horrible at baking, just ask any neighbor or better yet ask Christian who is exactly opposite and it drives him nuts.

I love to watch the Bachelor, yep I don't miss an episode. I don't know why I am obsessed with those shows, I think all the drama is dumb, but I still watch it every week. I am voting for Teanley this time.

I am horrible at taking tests! When I was going through the PTA (physical therapy program) I had a teacher who knew I didn't test well so some times she would do an oral test just for me. Then on one of her tests I was the only one in the whole program who got an answer correct so she brought me a license plate cover and announced it in front of the entire class. So I am way stressed because I have to take a PTA test to become licensed (they just changed the laws in UT requiring everyone to be licensed) so wish me luck as I relearn everything. I get nervous just thinking about it!

When I was 24 I had my tonsils taken out because they found holes in my tonsils, I can't believe I was 24 when they finally figured that out! I for sure recommend getting them out earlier.

Just had to get a few things out in the open :)

Here You Go Christian...

My top 5 reasons for not updating the blog:
  • Spending time with family: We are so glad some of our favorite people were able to come for Christmas!
  • Spending a week recuperating in the Valley of Sun.
  • Coming home to a lot of primary stuff to do!!
  • and lastly painting an entire apartment!
We loved having Kate here for her first Christmas! We hope you all had a wonderful one as well!

This Christmas was so much fun for Benton, making it all that more fun for us! On Christmas Eve we were driving home from Grandpa's and Benton kept looking out the window looking for Santa flying in the sky. We can't wait for next year.

The day after Christmas we spent the day at my brother's house having fun in the snow. We loved watching our Texas cousins play in it for the first time. Preston came outside tasted the snow and said: "it tastes like water!" For those that didn't know I served my mission in Arizona so I have a sweet spot for all the cactus and pure desert. I would move to AZ in a moment if Christian would just say "yes". I got out of the car and saw these two playing, just look at christian on that motorcycle.
This little miss loved being out in the sun too. So nice to not need a coat, hat and gloves when you are outside!

These two had a great week together and who doesn't want to swim on New Year's Eve?

Don't mind those way white legs, but did think it was fun dipping those little toes in the water.
We went to this cute train park and when we pulled up my dad reminded me he took us all there when I was about 7. We wish there was a train park near us.
There is a little western town just outside Scottsdale and we found this store "Suzanne's Hot Stuff." They have the hottest spices and dips around.

All in all it has been a great month!
