Temple Square








On Friday night I took these pictures at Temple Square. The Motab Christmas Concert was very entertaining. The freezing temperatures have kept me indoors, but I'm glad that I braved the cold for one night.

Happy 50th Dad!!


I guess Dad was working all day, so I didn't get a chance to talk to him. I want to wish him the best 50th Birthday. Thanks Dad. I love you so much.

It seems like we never get a chance to celebrate Dads Birthday. Its falls in the same week as piano recitals, ward parties, and Jr. Jazz games. I was trying to remember all the birthdays we spent at other gatherings, and I think its almost everyone of them. Sorry Dad. I hope you got to do at least one thing fun today. At least you got a really good present this year, A suit:) I know you really wanted it. I love you.

Blazing Needles




I found a really awesome store for Lizzy. Its called Blazing needles. Its for knitters and the avid crochet addicts. http://www.blazing-needles.com/index.html. Click on this link and it will take you to their website. Although I didn't see any patterns, at least you know where you can go to find them. Have fun!!

Things I Want to Do This December

I am so excited to go and see the lights. I don't believe I have gone since I was in Elementary school. Its going to be amazing. I can't wait.
I want to make many Christmas treats. I may or may not eat them, but I want to see them on a plate. Some weird thing I have a about food. I can't decide what food to make, and so I end up just eating bread and peanut butter. I can't seem to get goodies out of my mind. Good Treats!

Going to Gardner Village. It is a happy place, that has the friendliest elves. Aren't they cute. I'm so glad Sara introduced me to this place. I get to go to the Quilt Shop for the first time since, 2007.



Last but not least, I get to go home! I will be done with this semester, and I get to leave the city. That means a few weeks of no homework. I am getting closer to the finish line for my degree and I am getting so excited. I love being at home!
Home for the Holidays. I've waited two years for this merry season. Its going to be a real thrill!!!
