O how he loves his T.V!

Christmas has come and gone so soon. This year it never felt like Christmas to me and I'm not sure why? Maybe it is because there was no kids around, caches family is away, my family is in St. George and we are to old. I still had a lot of fun though. I bought cache a T.V. for Christmas this year...I know I shouldn't have but I just couldn't resist seeing such happiness on his face this year...he deserved it! I surprised him good with this gift. I thought he was going to start jumping up and down and flapping his arms. ( he said he about did but was afraid the neighbors would see him) Forget having kids cache is great on Christmas!Cache spoiled me as well I got some super
cute jackets, books, makeup(he is a great makeup shopper he always hunt for the clinque gift!), and a buch of little thing he remembered I wanted. We did P.J.'s on Christmas eve at my grandma and grandpas. I look forward to this every year. It makes me feel like a kid again! My grandparents always make me feel like a kid again...I love them so much! On Christmas morning we headed back to O town to enjoy my grandpas fabulous breakfast-Scones, hash browns, eggs, ham and coffee-I am pretty sure I gained 10 lbs. The rest of the day Cache and I just lounged around and enjoyed the flat screen. Good bye bunny ears...hello HDTV!

Snow, Food and Family

I thought I would post some pictures of our adventures this past month. We went to Cache's parents for thanksgiving this year and then made the trek to St. George. Ahhh sunshine! Thanksgiving was small but fun. Easton was the only kid around for it. I love that kid! We never get to see him much but when we do we savor it. We spent awhile playing Iron man with him. The game consisted of Cache and Easton fighting with imaginary powers and me hiding behind the chair guarding the fort and cheering Easton on. I love kids and there imaginations I wish my was still as vivid. After dinner we went bowling...that's right folks at the same bowling ally that Gary Colman got arrested at. I wish he was there! Friday we drove to St. George where we were greeted by sunshine. Cache ended up putting up my mom's Christmas lights while I was basking in the sun. I felt bad for him because he was sweating like a pig! We spent time with all my family. It was Laura's B-day and we celebrated at her house. I love seeing my brothers and sisters. I 'm not sure how they all ended up in St. George though. My nieces and nephews are there now which made the trip worth it. My sisters kids are so stinking cute. I wish they were closer =( All in all it was a good weekend until we had to come home and reality set in and I had to go back to that dreaded place called work! I think you should be able to retire 25!

I'm Gonna Patten That Shit!

So after I posted the blog below I forgot something I wanted to share, but I don't want anyone to steal my idea so don't get any bright ideas. I Love to talk to my sister in law Tammie Ann on the phone and we tend to talk for hours on end when we do. The last time I was talking to her I invented the poor man's blue tooth. It is my new hands free mobile device that can be used practically anywhere (at least inside the house, I do not recommend going outside) It was great cause I could talk and do dishes at the same time without getting a kink in my neck! While talking to her on the phone I said " I wish you could see my new invention!" so this one is for you Tammie Ann! If you really like my new devise feel free to use it at home but remember... I am gonna patten that shit! I also wanted to blog about a book club. I really want to start a book club! I have tried this before and it has failed miserably (Janel would remember!) Tammie Ann and I have talked about starting one so I was thinking we should start one in the blogging world. I am not sure how to start a book club so if anyone has ideas or wants to be in one let me know. Winter is the best time for reading and I am dry on ideas so any suggestions would be appreciated. Do you have to have a president of the book club? I'm' just not sure.....

By Request....

By request I have a new friend and her name is Tammie Ann (not Tam!) I am sorry for this mistake! (by your message you do need a break from the boys, I hope this makes you happy =) HAHA! I love you and your bitchiness!!

I pretty sure I have the best husband ever!

Like I said, I am pretty sure I have the best husband ever! I have been soooo sick the last week or so. Last night I was up all night coughing up a lung.. it was awful. Cache kept asking me if there was anything he could do but me being the tough girl that I am said " no I am fine" By the way I hate it when people won't just let you help them. haha! After what felt like hours of coughing cache got up at 4am to go get me cough drops, tea and lemons. How sweet is that! I know its not a lot but is the little thoughtful and sweet things that cache dose that makes me love him. This is a picture of him letting his nieces paint his nails and toenails, I swear he would do anything for his nieces and nephews. So since I have been sick tired and bored expect a little rambling on my part.
First I want to say I just finished the book Escape and it was so good. I highly recommend it. I borrowed it from caches mom thinking it would be an ok read but it turned out to be quite the page turner. Also if you have never read the Green Book you should it will change the way you think about your impact on the environment. Just a little FYI...
"Pens-try to buy reusable pens, pencils and markers. Disposable plastic pens arn't recyclable, nor are they biodegradable. Throw one away, and it will still be in a landfill fifty thousand years from now." That is soooo disturbing! I am a pen horder so this will be a hard habit to break. I have a drawer full of pens. I am that person who is constantly stealing pens every where I go. At any given time you could find at least 10 pens in my purse. Dr. office pens are the best!
Last but not least Crumpets are in! If you have never had a Crumpet you need one. They are like English muffins but better. They have more little holes in is so when you put butter and jam on them they turn into juicy goodness. I get them at Harmons(of course!) and they are only available seasonally so get them while the gettin is good!
Also another thing I want to share is I am so happy Barack Obama is our president! This is the first time in my life I have been proud of our president. I truly believe that he will change the direction of our county and guide us in making this world a better place. I know a lot of people might feel differently but I had to share how proud I am. For the sake of keeping friends if you don' t agree with me lets be sure to never talk politics.

Voting, Halloween and Resting....Ahh

This has been great week. Thursday we went to see Thriller with Cody and his wife Hanna. It was so fun! If you have never seen it I highly recommend that you go. I love the bones dance it is my favorite. I tried to take a picture but it turned out kinda bad. It is a rhythm dance and they are in glow and the dark skeleton costumes.
The next day Cache and I went and voted, this was really exciting for me. This was the first time either of us went to vote. We went up to campus for early voting and I was surprised that the wait was 45 minutes. I was glad that we got into the election, it has been an exciting campaign and a very exciting time to be in America. After we went and voted cache went to work and I went over to my grandparents. I love going to my grandparents house they are my favorite people in the world! I learned one valuable lesson this year and that is to never talk politics with my grandma especially if you are voting for Obama. After all the arguing I am still not positive why she and my mom are convinced he is the anti-christ. That is a whole different blog in itself! Anyways...we ate chili and I took my cousins Trick or Treating. They have to be the worst trick or treater ever. When I was little I remember going to as many houses as possible and as fast as I could. They were so slow! They would skip houses, turning down candy and were begging to go home after the first block. Lame! O well I guess they had fun.
To top the week of all weekend we have been at caches parents, it's like a mini vacation. He has been working down here so we decided to stay at the Cherrington pad. It's so great! There is food, cable, big screen T.V's, a fireplace and four wheelers. I love it! The fun will be over tomorrow and we will have to head back home to our little casa. It was fun while it lasted.
Happy Halloween everyone and happy election day! May all your wishes come true!

Body Worlds!

Yesterday Mike and Laura came up to SLC. Finally! It is so nice to have family and friends come and visit. We love Salt lake but it does get lonely at times =( We went to the Body Worlds exhibit yesterday...I was in such a happy place. I have been wanting to see this exhibit for a long time now and it finally came to Utah. We went to the knock off version in Vegas a couple of years ago, but it's not the same. Gunther Von Hagens is definitely more artistic and beautiful. I felt a little guilty after going to the one in Vegas. Tiffany told me that the body's that they use are all unclaimed bodies from the Chinese government. I don't know if that is true or not but I believe it. While we were going through it we thought the same thing " Why do all of these body's look Chinese?" They were tiny! We should have known Vegas is dirty like that!
