Oakleigh's Christmas Concert

Oakleigh's Christmas Concert was today. At Oakleigh's school, when you hit the fifth grade, you get to chose between band, orchestra or choir. Before fifth you just take a general music class. Oakleigh chose choir. They sang four songs (only one was a Christmas song though) My favorite was Hava Nagela (which I probably spelled wrong) It is fun to see how mature she is getting. In my opinion she is the prettiest girl in her class.

SFFFHE ( super fun friends & family home evening)

Tonight for Family Home Evening we went to This is the place state park with our friends the Henricksen's. There was actually quite a bit to do. We went to Santa's workshop and put together giant toy trains. The kids made reindeer bags and gingerbread ornaments. There was a live Nativity and also Father Christmas with live reindeer. The best part I thought was our private showing of The Heritage Christmas Carolers. After we were done we came back to our house and Jill fed us some super yummy cookies.

Birthday Presents

Have I ever said how Awesome my darling husband is? He is the best. My Husband always can not wait for my birthday befor he gives me my present. And this year was no different. He gave me a laptop a couple of weeks ago. Which is the coolest. But this year so I would get something on my actual birthday he got me a gift card to Aldo so I could buy the over priced riding boots I wanted from there. Which I love. Alex also came from awesome parents they gave me an American express giftcard so I could buy whatever I want. I wanted a pair of skinny jeans do wear with my new boots,so I bought a pair of bebe jeans I practicaly stole.(Normally 168 I got them for 79 now that is AWESOME!)

Free Birthday Lunch

My friend Jill and I have the same birthday (which is tomorrow so this is my last day of being in my 20's). We decided to work this to our advantage, so we both signed up for a free birthday meal from Noodles & Company. Then we also signed up for free ice cream from Cold Stone. We went together yesterday and got our free meal. When we were ordering the guy was trying to flatter us by telling us to have a great 21st birthday. Of coarse I had to have him guess my age. He guessed 26 so I was happy. (Jill forgot to ask him to guess her age)We then went to Cold Stone for our Free ice cream. What could be better than lunch with a friend? A FREE ONE!

The Puppies are Here

As most of you know we have a male and female cairne terrier. We got our female Lyndie first. We decided we wanted to breed her so we then got our male, we named Oliver. This morning when I woke up ,to my daughter Oakleigh asking me where Lyndie was, we started to look for Lyndie. We went down stairs and found her and Oliver on our couch. When I started to scold them for being on the couch and told them to get off Lyndie did not obay,which was odd, I went closer and saw that she had four little puppies.(and blood all over the couch)We were so excited we woke everyone up, including my parents next door,to come see the puppies. While we were trying to get Lyndie sitchuated some place other than the couch.She became very quite and out came flying (No Joke) another puppy that Alex some how caught right in his hand. So as of right now we are the proud owners of seven Cairne Terriers.

Izabelle's Bunny Family

While I was running around getting my machines working for me this morning. (dishwasher,washing machine, dryer) Izabelle was keeping herself busy by making a Bunny Family. She made one for everyone in our family. It was so cute I had to take a picture of her hard work.

Family Home Evening

For FHE, this last Monday, we cleaned out our garage. It was so bad in the garage we could barley walk. We needed it cleaned out so Alex would have room to work on the house. Which benefits the whole family. I wish we would have taken a before pic but I didn't think about it. We set a timer for one hour and in that time we took everything out of the garage, swept and put everything back. I can even park my car in there now. After we went to Leatherby's to reward all of our hard work.

Date Night

We have a couple (Ryan & Jill) in our neighborhood we hang out with all the time. At least until Ryan got a part time job at night. So now we get together at odd times like having a date night on Monday. Here we are at Biaggi's and we had to get a pic because we never get together much so we needed a memento. LOL

Farmer Alex

A little more than a year ago we bought a house right next to my parents, because Alex wanted a big yard with a garden. This house has a yard that is 5 times bigger than the yard at our first house and half of it is garden. I think the yard size has really started to effect the way Alex dresses. Here he is wearing his irrigation boots, Carrhart overalls and his Tilly hat. Isn't he just so cute! I love it. I think he is really considering my idea of an Olympic sized swimming pool though. LOL!
