WE LOVE CHRISTMAS SHOWS!

We love to watch Christmas shows...we can't wait until TBS does the marathon of "A Christmas Story". We honestly leave it on all day, even though we have the DVD we watch it over and over. (I know "REDNECKS") The funnest thing is we sit and quote it days upon end then just laugh and laugh. I LOVE this time of year!!

Thanksgiving Day!

What FUN day Thanksgiving is. The day always seems to go by SO fast! Isn't that the way life seems to be, you want a day to go by slowly so you can enjoy it with family or friends, but it goes by so fast. Scott had to work today, so we had a late dinner. We enjoyed catching up with all the Aunts, Uncles ann cousins. We played games and enjoyed the day togehter. Tomorrow is a day of shop, shop, shop!

I AM THANKFUL!

My Aunt sent this to me and I loved it. With the Thanksgiving Season only a week away it even ment more to me. With all the chaos going on in the world, it was calming for me to read then and think of of the things I am thankful for.









I AM THANKFUL:
FOR THE WIFE
WHO SAYS IT'S HOT DOGS TONIGHT,
BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME,

FOR THE HUSBAND
WHO IS ON THE SOFA
BEING A COUCH POTATO,
BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME
AND NOT OUT AT THE BARS.

FOR THE TEENAGER
WHO IS COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES
BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE IS AT HOME,
NOT ON THE STREETS.

FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN SURROUNDED BY FRIENDS.

FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO SNUG
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.

FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM OUT IN THE SUNSHINE

FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING,
WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING,
AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE A HOME

FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING
I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT
BECAUSE IT MEANS WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

FOR THE PARKING SPOT
I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING
AND I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION .

FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM WARM.

FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH
WHO SINGS OFF KEY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I CAN HEAR.

FOR THE PILE OF LAUNDRY AND IRONING
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR.

FOR WEARINESS AND ACHING MUSCLES
AT THE END OF THE DAY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD.

FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF
IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE.

AND I AM THANKFUL:
FOR THE CRAZY PEOPLE I WORK WITH
BECAUSE THEY MAKE WORK INTERESTING AND FUN!

AND FINALLY, FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE
THINKING OF ME.

Speeding Ticket -UGH!!

So...a couple of weeks ago on a Friday, Kristin asked me to follow her to the car dealership to drop her car off because the part had come in and they needed to keep her car for awhile.
So...being the wonderful mom that I am, I jumped into my car and stared driving to the South Towne Center of car city!!

For those of you who may drive in South Jordan...WARNING....the speed limit off 106th and Redwood is ONLY 35 MPH until after 1300 West! GEEZZZZ, that is way too slow.
Needless to say I thought it was 45, WRONG! There is road construction on the south west corner of Redwood Road and 106th and then there is this little 35MPH sign posted right behind all the construction right by the Del Taco.
I get pulled over by a female cop for going 47 in a 35. This is my first offence EVER, in my 30 years of drivng. No warning, no reduced mileage!
So I call the South Jodan Justice Court to find out how I go about paying my ticket. The lady who answers tells me I should come in and plead with the Judge of So. Jordan since this is my first offence.
So today after work I go to the Justice Court Building to plead my case. This Judge is as hard as nails......no mercy in his court for firstt time offenders. So needless to say I have to pay $107 speeding ticket and $50 for traffice school online so the points will be removed from by license. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME.
Just want to warn you all out there, SLOW down around 106th and East of Redwood Road...it's a SPEED TRAP!

YSA Activity at Fat Cats!

Scott and I are over the YSA's (Young Single Adults) in our ward. Kristin and Andrew are our YSA counselors. We have been wanting to have a night out and finally got a date that would work for everyone! We invited our neighbor ward to come along with us! It was a hit, we had 28 people show up! Everyone bowled for 2 hours, we had pizza, salad, bread sticks and soda. I think our high scorer the night was Dane at 147!


























This is a really fun calling. We enjoy getting to hang out with these young adults, helps keep us young. We've been able to have have service projects at the Utah Food Bank, weve had Luau's, and all kinds of great activities for this group of young adults.

Dinner at La Caille

Lindsay's Food Class had the opportunity to go to the La Caille to see how the upper end restaruants work & to enjoy a 5 course meal! Lindsay invited Scott and me to come along, so we thought "what the heck" it's both our birthdays & what a great place to celebrate our birthdays together.
Scott waiting in the hallway for dinner. The pictures in this hallway were beautiful! Scott, Lindsay and Zach in the entry way at the restaurant.
Scott and me at our table enjoying the wonderful meal and enjoying the beauty around us.
French vanilla ice cream flamb├ęd with banana and Bacardi Silver Rum sauce was our dessert. YUMMY!
