Happy Birthday Steve!

It was STEVE's birthday on Saturday!!!
We had such a great day. It ended with a yummy dinner at Tepanyaki and his friends
came over for cake and ice cream when we got home. I covered the cake with tin foil and
all of the frosting came off. It was beautiful! He was hoping that it'd snow and it did!
The night before, we went to dinner with Steve's family and then went to Temple
Square. It was weird not having any snow there, but it was so nice walking around and
not feeling like your hands were falling off. It was perfect and we had so much fun.
I just thought this was a pretty cool picture. We like to jump in pictures, can't you tell?

Christmas Projects and School Work

One down, some more to go! We finished our final project for our Student P.R. class. We have been the P.R. reps for the Interfaith Student Association and we had our end-of-semester trade show last Wednesday. We felt good about it and everyone was pleased that we actually had some people show up:) Finals are next week and we're grateful for that.

We are busy with school, but duh... There's always time to celebrate Christmas. After the trade show (notice I'm wearing the same on top) we went down to Springville to use my mom's sewing machine. With my home-made pattern and Steve's mad sewing machine skills and input from my mother, the stocking making was a success! Good luck to everyone taking finals in the next couple of weeks!

Thanksgiving Break

This break was so great and so very much needed! Of course I'm posting pictures from it, in no particular order. We had Thanksgiving with Steve's family this year and it was great. I'm so happy that I've got such great in-laws. I made two pies and was actually pretty proud of myself. They were tasty, but not very pretty, so I didn't take a picture. Those of you who know me too well are probably shocked that I even used my oven, but I DID! Sorry I don't have proof.
Steve and I went to the Jazz game and I was so happy and excited like a little kid. We had such a fun night. Thanks again Bill and Shirl for the tickets. They were very much appreciated!
Going out to lunch with these ladies is always fun. It's been way too long. I love these girls so much and I'm so grateful for their friendship. Kell is getting to be a pro with a stick shift car and her bun in the oven is growing. You can't even tell yet by looking at her. I'm the one who looks prego in the picture, but I am definitely NOT so don't go spreading any rumors...
I don't think Oliver enjoyed his cookie at all:) Isn't he so adorable? He's the happiest baby!
All of the kids decorating cookies, and ME. I was the only
one over the age of 13 at that table. It was too much fun.
Steve wasn't too sad that I had a girls day out. He and Jake got to play HALO together without me bugging him once about when he was going to be done. Roceil (Steve's mom) got them matching sweaters years ago and they both still have them. I had to take a picture.
This break was great and it's so fun to have such a great husband to share it with. We have too much fun together. It was such a great time to spend with friends and family and Steve and I are so grateful everyday for all that we have. We are so incredibly blessed!
Anyway, I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing and fun break. Christmas is just right around the corner. My shopping is pretty much done and besides passing my classes, I'm making Steve and I stockings. Cross your fingers that I don't screw them up too badly. Oh yeah, we're thinking about going to see the movie Australia... Has anyone seen it yet? What'd you think?
