Rock the Nog Baby!

Every Christmas we have some good friends that throw an "eggnog and turtleneck" party; however, they switched it up this year with "rock the nog-80's"-soo much fun! I can't beleive some of the outfits that were there...they were fabulous!! Anyway, we had pizza, white elephant gifts, 80's trivia game where we won some sweet glasses, Top Gun, Uno, and a slap bracelet! yeah baby! We are going to miss this pary every year! Thank you guys so much for the fun times and great parties..We will miss you!

This shirt was a great DI find...way too funny to pass up!

Saving the best for last! Everyone there loved my high waisted, way too tapered, purple jeans...so I couldn't resist putting this picture up...I hope you all get a good laugh!! (I hope my butt really isn't this big)

12 Days of Christmas!

1 BIG move
2 many delicious sweets
3 hanging stockings (that is is pretty much all we have up)
4 stressful weeks
5 crazy fun Christmas parties
6 planned days of packing
7 immediate family members we are leaving and will miss!
8 rhyms with prison break which we have been watching religiously
9 I can't think of anything!
10 million cardboard boxes
11 too many snowflakes!
12 days left till Santa!

Matt and I are moving to Southern orange county! I cannot believe it! Never in my life did I think I would be in California! But I must admit, I am so ready for the sunshine and warm weather! If we had snowboards at the moment, we would be switching them out for some surfboards right now! We have loved living in Utah, and will miss all of our friends and family that have been so kind and loving! We have truly been blessed to have made such wonderful friends here, but I guess that just gives you all an excuse to come visit the beach right? I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season!

RRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!

Jaxon was a lion this year for Halloween! Jamie made his costume and everyone loved it.


We gave him a sucker and he wouldn't let go of it to save his life. He got slobber everywhere and enjoyed every second of it!




Don't worry we only let him eat about 2 pieces of candy. Dad of course ate all the leftovers.

Holy Toledo!

The last leg of our trip was in Madrid, Spain where we took a day trip to the ancient city of Toledo that used to be the capital of Spain. It was so interesting to be standing in buildings over a thousand years old! It's history is so crazy. There is a church there that was built by Muslims to be a Jewish mosque but is a christian church today. The cathedral there is absolutely stunning. It took them 300 years to build.

This picture is the old entrance into the city. It has a huge wall around the whole city.
The parks were beautful and relaxing.


The pastries were awesome and huge!!!



This was the best sandwitch I have ever had. Period. And that is my sister Christina with me.




This amazing building is oh just the POST OFFICE!
We qualified for the trip to Spain through my work and they treated us like Kings. They had Spanish musicians playing music for us in the lobby of our hotel. We had a private dinner at a palace that blew away anthing we saw in London or Paris. There were musicians and opera singers serenading us throughout the dinner. We even had a private after hours tour of the Prada Museum in Madrid. It was incredible to have the whole building to ourselves!


This was the fancy night when we went to the Prada Museum with my sister Christina and her husband Jordan.


This is us out in front of our Palace Hotel. It was so fun and the flight back home was super long!

Davinci Code anyone? We saw the Holy Grail!

We averaged 4 pastries per day!


Took romantic walks through the park.



Does it get any better than this?

I See London!

The London Eye High Noon Tea! Cucumber sandwich anyone?
We have been having so much fun over here in London. For those of you who don't know, Matt and I are going to London, Paris, and Madrid with Matt's sister Christina and her husband Jordan. So far, we have made it to London! It has been a blast, except that I think my feet fell off a day ago or so! They walk so much around here! We have had high noon tea, experienced the double decker bus, saw Wicked, gone up..and then down the London Eye, and have done everything else I think that there is to do there! We absolutly loved it, but we do miss seeing our sweet little boy everyday!

BABY POWDER BOMB!!!




So Jamie and I were playing with Jaxon the other day and we both sat down on the couch and accidentaly fell asleep. The next thing we know we're waking up to something banging on the kitchen floor. Jaxon was laughing his head off because everytime he hit the baby powder bottle on the floor a big poof would shoot up into the air. Needless to say we're still dusting up baby powder all over our house!

Happy Birthday!


Happy birthday to you...happy birthday to you! Jaxon turned one last friday and boy did we have a party! I cannot believe how fast this past year has flown by and how fast jaxon has gone from a chubby little baby to this little boy! Does anyone know how to slow time??
For his birthday bash my brother and his family came up to celebrate (yeah, we love you guys), since most of Matt's family have left us all alone. We wish you all could have been there with us! We went to the childrens discovery garden at Thanksgiving point, which was really fun. I had never been there before and the kids really liked it. We got lost in the maze, crawled in bear caves, and played in the water
After coming back we had some friends and more family over for a bbq with cake and Ice-cream. I have to brag about the cake because I helped make it and I love it! Matt's sister Christina helped make it beautiful no doubt! (thanks a ton!) and he destroyed it.....
