It's snowing AGAIN!!!

Snowy Days

I woke up this morning to 5 inches of snow. It still has not stopped snowing. I should not be complaining, because our appraiser is coming to do an appraisal on the house day. We are suppose to have our deck stained for the type of loan we are getting. So last night I prayed that the appraiser would over look the deck and my prayer was answered with 5 inches of snow. So, this morning I have to be grateful for the snow. I just hope it stops soon. I think that Brock and I will make a snowman tomorrow.

Today is my last day of school before our Christmas break starts! I am so EXCITED! I get to sleep in and stay in my pajama's as long as I want. Also I still have last minute Christmas shopping to do. Last night our ward had a cookie exchange. Everyone that participated made 4, 6, or 8 dozen cookies/goodies and how ever many dozen you made, you got to take that many dozen home of other kinds of cookies/goodies. It is perfect, because now I have everything to make up my goodie plates to take around to our friends. So, Brock and I will be delivering those this weekend. Jason is on night shifts so he won't be joining us ( I am sure he is so sad! lol).

Enough of my blabbing here are some pictures of me being festive!

It is finally up!

Well I finally put up some of my Christmas decorations! Brock was such a great little helper. Now I need to put my garland around my deck, so that the outside of my house has some holiday decorations. This weekend Brock and I are going to put together our ginger bread house. I think I usually end up doing most of the work, while Brock eats the candy.

I am not too excited for this weekend or next, because I am the Junior class advisor and I have to be at the concessions supervising. I don't know how I was talked into this position. The real down side is that we are in charge of prom and it is two weeks before my due date. That should be a fun week! Oh well, I am just going to have to deal with it and make the best of it.
Here is a picture of our tree. The picture doesn't do it any justice. I wish you could see all the little ornaments, especially the one that Ang had made of the three of us. It is so cute! Oh, well you get the picture.

Insane shoppers!

Well Brock and I made it back from SLC last night. We picked Jason up from work on our way home. I thought that this would be a great idea! WOW was I wrong. I wanted to eat in Carlin at the Chinese restaurant, but Jason said that he didn't want to wait that long. So we went to the Pizza Factory, because one of the guys Jason works with told him that they have a really good sandwich there. I was not excited at all, I am not big on sandwiches for dinner and I definitely didn't want pizza. I thought I was the pregnant one! So I decided I would just eat when we got home. I wasn't in a very good mood after that! I am too much of a spoiled brat and when I don't get my way I tend to pout.
SLC was insane! All the stores were so packed and the lines were so long. I usually love to shop, but I was so annoyed on Saturday. I decided that if I really need something, then I would just order it online. There was some good points to our trip. Saturday night I got 10 hours of sleep! I also ate with my family at Red Lobster and IHOP! They were so good! Brock was able to play with his two cousins that he doesn't get to see very often. They had a great time, especially while my uncle Al was babysitting them and he took them to the park.
I am definitely glad to be back home! Tonight Brock and I are going to put up our Christmas decorations! It is about time! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Still moving!!

Well we are still in the process of moving. I do have to say that it is getting much better. We still don't have all of our stuff at our new house, but we will get there. I am so thankful that Jason has worked on our house all of his 7 days off. Poor guy, he hasn't had much of a break. I am happy to say that I now have a functioning kitchen and Jason has been working on the other bathroom and I think that it will be functioning by the time I get home today. So, things are looking up. I still have lots to unpack, but oh well I will get there.
I think that I am going to go to Salt Lake this weekend to do some Christmas shopping. It will be fun, because I can stay at my sister Melanie's house and I have a couple of cousins that can watch Brock. I think that I will take the truck, because I want to go to IKEA for some storage cabinets. I also want to go Tai Pan to get Christmas decorations for my tree. Since we moved my parents gave us one of their big trees. I want to get new decorations for it. This is the downfall to moving so close to Christmas, I have been so busy unpacking that I have not put my Christmas up get. I am a little sad, because this my favorite holiday season. Hopefully I will get it all up by next week.
We had a good thanksgiving at my parent's house. Mostly all my mom's family and my dad's parents were there. We had a good time! I was so excited that my uncle brought pies from Marie Calenders. The banana cream is my favorite! I also enjoy the left over turkey sandwiches. The day after Thanksgiving was my birthday! The big 26! My grandma took my uncle Swen and his family along with Brock to Orvada, where my great grandpa has a ranch. On there way back Jason, Stephanie, Edwin, and I met them in Winnemucca to watch a movie. Of course I went to Bolt with Brock. Jason, Steph, and Edwin went to the James Bond movie. We had a good time. Overall our Thanksgiving break was good!
