Making Stockings with MOM
Last weekend was a lot of fun spending time with my mom. We were able to go to some stores together and get Christmas stuff, and then we made Christmas Stockings for my brother and brother in law. They are both on their missions right now, so we thought it would be a cute christmas present to make them both stockings and fill it with goodies.
If it wasn't for my cute mom in law, who helped me figure out how to work my sewing machine, my mom and I wouldn't of been able to sew them.
I got a sewing machine a couple years ago, and then lost the instructions, so I've been just storing it in our closet.
I'm so excited that we got it working! I can't wait to start sewing little projects!

All in All, My mom and I had a great time spending time together! And, I think the stockings turned out pretty cute too!

I can't believe how fast this year is going, and that Thanksgiving has come and gone. Steve and I had a fun Thanksgiving spending time with the Ford fam this year. (We switch off holidays with my fam and his) We were able to go to the family cabin and have a relaxing week/weekend playing games, reading, going for a couple of walks and of course eating LOTS of yummy food.

My very favorite thing about thanksgiving(besides the food) is that everyone sits down as a family and we all discuss what we are thankful for and for all the great blessings we have in our life.

Just a few things of what Steve and I are grateful for:

*The Gospel
*Our Eternal Marriage
*Our Families & Friends
*Our Home
*We are both Healthy
*Have a great Job & good education opportunities
*Working Vehicles
*Temples that are close

Steve and I are very blessed, and we feel very grateful to Heavenly Father, for everything that he has given us.

Once we came home from the cabin we were able to set up our Christmas tree, and decorations while we watched Charlie Brown. I LOVE Christmas shows!

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Twilight and Steve's 25th Birthday!

Steve and I were able to go to Twilight on Thursday at 8:00 pm! We were spoiled by our landlords! Our Landlords daughter rented out a theatre for family and friends to go see the show early! It was so much fun! I LOVED the movie! Steve really liked it to. We both want to go see it again. We both thought that the characters and the movie portrayed the book really well! I loved the movie, but I still think the books are better....but books are always better than the movie!

We celebrated Steve's Birthday yesterday! Poor guy had to take a 5 hr test in the testing center. So, the beginning of his day wasn't that great. But, after school and work we were able to go to Tepanyaki with our friends Todd and Larissa. It is SO good! I recommend this place to everyone! They cook the food right in front of you, so it's food and entertainment all in one.
After dinner we went back to our place and had some cake and talked!
Happy Birthday Steve!

We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!(I'll post pictures Later)

Real-Life Furby discovered
I saw this and thought it was awesome! So, I wanted to share it with everyone. It looks creepy, but cute at the same time. This little guy is a Pygmy Tarsier, they were thought to be extinct but were found alive in the forested highlands of an Indonesian island for the first time in more than 70 years.

Some Interesting and Useless Facts:
-Size of a small mouse (measure less than 4 inches from head to tail)
-Weigh Less than 2 oz
-Primate Species
-Claws instead of fingernails
-Can turn their heads 180 degrees

What do you think about them?
I got all of my information &

Election Day
Today was Election Day! I'm so happy that I was able to vote today. This is the first year that I put my vote in. I've never been interested in voting or politics. Politics have always been boring, and I never understand what they are talking about. Well this year, (thanks to my hubby) I've been more interested in what's going on and how lucky I am that I have the right to vote. We really are a blessed nation to be able to put our say in and be able to vote.
I've realized that it's important that we vote and voice are opinions, because they do matter.
God bless America!

Barnyard Boo!

Steve and I were able to have a relaxing weekend spending time with one another. On Friday we were so tired from the week, we decided it would be a good idea to just take it easy and relax. So, Friday we spent the evening at our place having a nice dinner then cuddling on the couch. On Saturday, we decided to go to Thanksgiving Point and see what they had going on for Halloween.
At Thanksgiving Point they had an event called "Barnyard Boo." It's mostly for little kids, but Steve and I had a blast! We don't like going to Haunted Houses and all the creepy things that go on during Halloween. So, Barnyard Boo was perfect for us. It's really cute, they have all these games for little kids to play. Then all these small and baby animals are everywhere that you can go and pet and feed. I was so excited when I saw the two baby cows and the baby pony! I love animals. I was even able to convince the two baby cows to come up to me and then they started sucking on my finger, then Steve got the baby pony sucking on his.
They also had a wagon ride and then gave out cookies that you frosted and decorated. It was so much fun! I love that Steve and I take time each weekend to spend time with each other.
We have such a good time, no matter what we do.

Life is Great!
Life has been pretty busy but lots of fun!! It's been hard for me to keep up with the blog lately with everything going on. So, like my last post I decided I would sum up everything again that we have been doing.
I had my bunion surgery, that went very well! My foot is healing the way it should be. I had to be down and off my foot for awhile, so I got caught up with the Twilight Saga. I am completely obsessed with the books! In the book Eclipse, it came with these Team Edward and Team Jacob decals. So, my little sister Kjersti and I made t-shirts with them. And NO, I am not ashamed to wear my Team Edward t-shirt. I can't wait to see the movie!!
Steve and I celebrated our 2 year Anniversary on Sept 20th! We couldn't do a ton, because of my foot. But we had a great time being able to spend time with one another. We went to lunch and had Cafe Rio and then went and saw "Mamma Mia!" I love that movie! I loved the music and the dancing. I can't wait for it to come out on video. Then Steve and I went to my parents house and said our goodbye's to my cute brother's family. Kody, Jade and baby Carson moved to Washington for a couple years. Steve and I had a great Anniversary! I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful husband. He's everything that I could of ever asked for and more. I love you Steve!
I started working again at Principal Financial Group. I'm so happy to finally start up work again! Principal was so nice and gave me my job back. (I worked there before we moved to Washington) It's been great working and seeing my work friends again.
Last weekend was great being able to listen to conference and spend time with family.
Every conference, my mom and sisters have a ladies night while the men go to the priesthood session. We switch off going to Roberts or Desert Book. (Those of you who haven't heard of ladies night, Roberts and Desert book give gifts, have entertainment, food and fun for all the women while there men go to priesthood session.) Well, this year we went to Desert book and had a great time! I love spending time with my mom and sisters. It's great to take a night out and spend time with each other.
This week we were able to go to the Jazz game! Thanks to Kjersti's friend Landon. He gave us 24th row tickets to the Jazz game! It was great to be able to actually see the players faces! :) This weekend we hung out with our friends Todd and Larissa. We carved pumpkins and watched "The nightmare before Christmas." We had lots of fun carving, but that isn't my favorite movie... I love decorating for the holidays. Then yesterday, my sister-in law to be had her bridal shower, so I was able to spend time with all of Steve's family! Which is always lots of fun. We also celebrated my mom's birthday! We went to Letherby's and had ice cream. Love you MOM and Happy Birthday!
So, that's what we have been up to!
