Look what I did!

Last night I taught myself how to make my own layouts for my blog! What do you think? I was getting so frustrated, but by 10:00 I had this one to show for it! Livie would go around the house and say "Mom is a genius" because that is what I was yelling from the office! If any of you want to know how...let me know!

It won't stop!

In case you have been living under a rock (those of you in Utah) the snow keeps on coming and shows no signs of stopping. Leaving me to wonder if this is going to be such a huge storm that power goes out leaving us to freeze to death, you can't leave your house because the snow is 10 feet high, stores close down so there is no way for you to get food, and schools shut down leaving your children cooped up inside driving you crazy and then to top it all off everything is covered is snow and a deep freeze happens like in the movie The Day After Tomorrow. If you haven't seen it, I DON'T suggest it because then whenever the weather gets a little questionable you will end up an exaggerating, worst case scenario, paranoid psycho. I'm glad I don't know anyone like that!

Mama Mia!

Brad's parents took us to Las Vegas yesterday to see Mama Mia! It was sooooo good! I have seen the movie seven times, so to see the musical was way fun. Brad has never seen the movie, but he really enjoyed it. I wanted to dance and sing, but everyone sat like lumps on a log! What gives? Anyway, it was nice to get away the two of us.....did I mention my parents watched the kids! They had so much fun making sugar cookies and tree ornaments and who knows what else they did....they won't tell! Funny thing is, as soon as my parents left, Livie turned to me and said, "Well mom? What fun thing are we going to do now that your home?" Guess we're not as fun as Grandma and Grandpa!

We rode on the scariest tram to ever exist! That is why I am hiding from all the crazies!

This is my $7.99 bottle of water! We had to document it because that will NEVER happen again!

Brad and I love musicals....we have seen like 7-8 together!

Twilight revisited

I went and saw Twilight again for the second time, and this time it was soooo much better! I think when I saw it I was sooo tired and so sick of girls EVERYWHERE! Last night there were no 12 year olds screaming in my ear, no commentary each time a character appeared onscreen, no shrills every time Edward came on (just those of me and my friend Jana...lol). It was fun. I'm happy. Edward....still hot.

Hey people...I'm back!

So your all probably wondering where I have been? Our internet crashed and the lovely people at a certain phone company, that I won't mention, were on a Qwest to try and fix this problem. They finally did at around 8:30 this morning! Hallelujah! I have been going crazy! Anyway....we have had quite a bit going on and not to be able to blog about it was kind of depressing. I think I had blogitis. Thanksgiving was wonderful, thanks to my amazing cook of a mother, I taught her everything she knows. Black Friday shopping was a blast! My little nephew turned 2, time goes by sooo fast. My mom had her 30th birthday, my sis in law had a birthday....I'm birthdayed out! Wait....Brad has a birthday on the 28th, then Jake on the 12th of Jan, then father in law on Feb 1 and Hannah on Feb 5th. Holy Crap! We try once a week to have a "Sleep over" with the kids. They get to sleep in our room and pick out a movie and we eat crap for like 2 hours. It's so much fun. This last one we gave the kids presents. Cute backpacks that held a sleeping bag, flashlight and water bottle. They loved em! Especially Boston. We watched Home Alone and Polar Express. I think we all finally fell asleep at 12:30!
