Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope all my family and friends had a very blessed, wonderful, safe and memorable Christmas this year! I had an amazing Christmas. I started Christmas morning off at my dad's house with my little sister, my mom and dad. I think we all had a great Christmas- Thank you Mom, Dad and Michaela for the great gifts- I love you guys and was so happy to see you Christmas morning.

I went to Cindy and Randy's as well Christmas morning. Kayli, Blake & Val, Carter and Sky were all there... I think we can all agree that we had a great Christmas there too! Thank you so much everyone for all the great things you got me... I feel so blessed to have you as my family. After everyone was done opening presents we made breakfast as a family and relaxed a little. Later that day I met up with Adam, he took me to meet his mom and step dad, his mom was so cute and pretty funny in her own way. Thank you so much Adam for letting me meet you mom. :) Later that day Adam and I went to the movies to see Tron with two of his brothers. Its their tradition to go see a movie Christmas day. It was great to meet more of Adam's family :) Adam thank you so much for all you got me! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve

This year I spent my Christmas eve with some very important, special and great people. I started my day off by finishing up some last minute shopping with Kayli. We had fun getting ready in the morning together, grabbing lunch that afternoon together and then shopping! We haven't done that for sometime so it was really nice to be able to do that. When Kayli and I were done I met up with Adam to run some errands and get some gifts. We headed to Donna's moms for Christmas eve dinner... early dinner- It was the first time Adam was going to meet the Nelson family, we didn't spend much time there but we were able to help set the table and mingle a little bit. They loved him of course!After Donna's we went to Randy and Cindy's for dinner... it was wonderful of course. All of Cindy's kids were there and two of Randy's were able to make it. We had a great time hanging out, eating and opening some gifts. I was really so grateful and happy to be able to spend my Christmas eve with the Nelson Family, Kayli and her brothers & sister in law, the Mellor's and Adam. Everyone means so much to me and I love you all dearly! Thank you for making me apart of your Christmas this year. :)

Let's make some candy!

Cindy has started a new tradition that every year the night before Christmas Eve we all get together as a family and make candy! This was our first year doing it and it was so much fun! Everyone was there, Skylar, Blake and Valerie, Kayli, Adam and I, Carter and Randy's son Matt and his wife Shantay and their three kids, Tasha, Talia and Jonas.... One big happy family! :) We made suckers, carmel, chocolate covered rice crispy treats, turtles and so much more. It was a great time and I think a great new tradition. Thanks mama Cindy!

Work Christmas Party

My work's annual Christmas party was held at Rodizio Grill in Trolley Square this year. Let me start off by saying that this party was by far THE BEST ONE YET!!! OMG!! We had a blast this year! So my boss, Steve, had a great idea to have a karaoke night. It was so much fun and everyone enjoyed it! This year was really cool too because one of my best friends, Kayli started working here so she got to be apart of it. :) We started the night off with everyone just mingling and catching up a bit... then we had an awesome dinner! After dinner the real fun began. I sang with Christy and Sonja- we were the opening act, we sang Jingle Bell Rock... we didn't do so well, we were laughing way to hard and couldn't get it straight... Good thing the following acts were MUCH better! I was seriously shocked! I work with some very talented people! After all the performances we got out on the dance floor for some fun! :) I work at a great company! Thank you so much Steve for an awesome time! Merry Christmas!Kayli & her date, AdamEveryone out dancing!Me & My date Adam.

A trip to Meeker...

My oldest sister Brandy and my niece Ashlynn live in Meeker, Colorado... for those of you who don't know where that's at it's in the middle of NOWHERE!! Its about 300 miles from Salt Lake City and to give you an idea of just how small this town is... a 5 year old can give you a tour and the tour of the whole town can be done in about 2 songs on the radio... it's a really small town. Well anyways...Adam and I made the trip down there to see them for Christmas and to get some gifts from her to give to the family. All in all the trip was good- I really enjoyed seeing my sister and Ashlynn, the town was super boring so I'm glad we didn't stay but still good to go and see them. I got to meet my sisters boyfriends family and that was nice, they owe the local store there- its like the walmart of Meeker. We had a really enjoyable and safe trip there and back.

Happy Birthday Bronx


Giving to the kids

Everyone at my work wanted to do something for the kids at the Boys & Girls Club for Christmas, we all decided it would be really cool if we could give them something- Turns out the kids were in a great need of coats, gloves, scarfs, hoodies and backpacks. We started spreading the word that we were collecting those items to give to the kids. We only had about three weeks to get donations and in those short three weeks the results were great! So many people at my work as well as our customers really stepped up and helped out. Friday a couple of us went to the Club to drop everything off- The kids were so grateful and so excited for all the new stuff! It was such a great experience! I love kids and I love giving so for me their cute little faces lighting up was such a gift back to me and for my co-workers. We had perfect timing as well- Santa was scheduled to visit the kids at 5 that day- we got there at 3 with all the stuff so Santa was able to give each child a gift! How amazing is that!? I am so glad we are sponsering the Club this year, the staff has been great and the kids are always wonderful! I really hope all the kids had a great Christmas.
