Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

Look at what one of Santa's Helpers (named Rebecca McDonald) gave to us! Our very first CHRISTMAS TREE!

Initially we weren't going to get a tree for two reasons:
1) Money
2) We would spend Christmas in Utah and our parents have trees so we'd just take lots of pictures with theirs.

One day on facebook Rebecca asked me if I had put up my decorations yet, to which I replied no because of the reasons listed above. Sunday night I go over to their house for dinner and she pulls out this decorated tree for me from the back of her car! I was so elated! It was the sweetest thing anyone could have done for us! So now we officially have a tree with decorations!

So I would like to present to you our first and very own Christmas tree in our home!!

Thank you Rebecca! We love you!

Now I realize that I haven't blogged about Thanksgiving and I'm unfashionable late with it too but I'll just give a brief overview of our trip to Utah for Thanksgiving....
It was SO MUCH FUN. You truly don't know what you have til it's gone, or in another state. It was so wonderful seeing out beautiful families again and spending time with them. (we miss you all so much!).

We spent Thanksgiving with both families and good friends and I got to catch up with everyone and hold babies all day long. I felt so motherly! Babies are so fun, especially when they aren't yours because you can always give them back when they start crying....or pooping.

After Thanksgiving lunch at Rick and Kim's house. I wish I took more pictures. Why wasn't I thinking?

Christmas Light!

That Thanksgiving Saturday we went to the BYU/UofU football game and it was AMAZING! I'm so proud to say that I WAS THERE and I saw everything with my own eyes! We had such a blast. Thanks for taking us Rick and Kim. Just like old times....

(Thank you Brenton for coming with us! You're always SO FUN to hang out with!)


We can't wait to see everyone again in a few weeks time.
