Hey blogging world! I have a question for you.

Has anyone out there been to New York in the winter? I would love some tips, places to see or eat, what to avoid, things of that nature. Were leaving tonight on a red eye to be there for New Years eve! I'm a little excited if you cant tell. We'll be there at 7AM tomorrow morning and are just spending the day there and coming back new years day. Yay! And it's basically free! Double yay! So give me what ya got people. Thanks friends.

This is all you get. Sorry.

I'm a bit of a slacker this year and am not doing Christmas cards. Actually, I probably won't until there's a kid to take the attention off us. So its not that we don't love you. Cause we do.
I'm just lazy.

Kristal did take some pictures of us this past weekend in Joe town and they turned out quite nice, considering Brennon can't open his eyes for pictures and I'm usually a little akward. Kristal is a photography genius.

She also took pics of my family, which turned out adorable.

Yes, it was a very difficult landing in high heel boots.

Just the girlies.

Thanks for all the lovely Christmas cards; they brighten my mailbox full of bills and ads.

Coming soon... the beloved tree!

I was SO excited to be able to have Thanksgiving at our house. I wanted to get all Martha Stewart but sorta lacked the time and talent. But I got to use all the dishes we got for our wedding that I've never used, so that was fun.
I also got to spend the whole morning cooking with Grandma G so that was a blast. She told me lots 'o' stories and taught me how to cook a turkey. I pretty much just stood back and let her do her thing.

The spread. Yes my mouth is watering just looking at it.

The tablescape. I wasn't expecting such a big square table so thats why the centerpiece looks so measly.

I really miss doing floral arrangements. I couldn't wait to make it and being the lame-o I am, I was up at 630 making it, as happy as can be.

The whole crew. We had a couple cousins over later for pie as well, but they dont get to be in the picture. :)

We did this jump about 3 times and my heels are still suffering. My face is obviously lovely.

My mom and I's sad attempt at being crafty. We made, like, 3 and were sick of it. So the rest of them were done with begrudgingly and with alot of whining (mostly on my part).

Then we did my FAVORITE THING EVER!! We put up the Christmas tree! I wanted to put it up 2 weeks ago but Brennon and I settled on Thanksgiving.

(Pictures soon to follow of the fully decorated one. It is pretty much the same as last year.)

Then we got to Skype with the Fish's. I had no idea how cool Skyping is. Our laptop has a camara built in and its free to download so now we can talk to Cara and Evan while there in Europe this Christmas! You can even play games with the person your talking to. Does everyone know about this and I'm just totally out of the loop til now? Anyways, it was a great thanksgiving day.

Then we headed up to Showlow for the rest of the weekend. And for some reason, we never take pictures up there! But we had a great time, just eating, playing games, watching movies, just generally being lazy. There is something about Show low (and the whole nothern AZ for that matter) thats makes me just want to nap all day long. I'm gonna blame it on the elevation. Yeah, thats it.

Good times, good times. Now I'm SO ready for Christmas and all its lovely-ness.
