Weekend Fun :)

This past weekend was a blast. Jordan and I went and bought our first Christmas tree together, and got it all set up in our living room. We had so much fun picking out our own lights, ornaments, ribbon, and tree toppers, and decorating it however we wanted. I love our beautiful Christmas tree, and I know I'll be very sad when the time comes to take it down.

On Saturday Jordan and I went over to our friend's house, Corey and Tricia, and had a little party. Skyler and Rachel even came over to hang out with all of us. We ate some yummy food, played monopoly, played with baby Bentlie, told stories, laughed, and had an all around great time.

We love hanging out with them, and I hope that we'll be able to get together a lot more this holiday season :)


I know this is a little late but things have been very busy around our house.
So, for Thanksgiving this year Jordan and I decided to go down to St. George, and spend some quality time with my family. We left Logan on Wednesday, made a quick stop in Salt Lake City for Jordan's work Thanksgiving dinner, and then headed down south. When we got there it was pretty late so we made some dinner, and went to bed.
The next day was Thanksgiving, so we had a lot to do. I made most of the dinner by myself with the help of my mom and little sister. We made so much food that I'm sure they ate it for a week or more! After dinner we all took a nap to sleep off all that food we had just eaten. Then we rented a movie and had some quality family bonding time.
The next day was black friday! So Jordan and I woke up at 2:00am and went to Walmart to get some great door buster deals. We stood in line for 3 hours to get one of them, and while one waited in line the other shopped around a little bit, and vice versa. Luckily, we got almost all of our Christmas Shopping done that day which was very convenient.
On Saturday we woke up, and had my mom take some pictures of us up at the ranch, so we had some to use for our Christmas cards this year. We took a lot of pictures with the animals, and had a lot of fun doing it :) After pictures, we headed down to town and went to a dollar movie, then had some dinner at In and Out.
The next day was Sunday, so we packed up our bags and headed home. The weather was terrible, and it took us a lot longer to get home than it usually does. We even saw 23 different cars that had ended up in the ditch on our way home. We were very grateful that we were able to make it home safely.
