Salt Lake City Temple Lights

So I have absolutely have no pictures of the snowboarding trip but I did manage to get some pictures at the Salt Lake City Temple. It was raining that night, but it was still crazy crowded.

This is the huge light tree, it was so tall and so amazing. I Loved it.

I have always loved the Salt Lake City Temple and this picture I think it turned out great.

Brian and I both got our picture taken by the pond with a Joseph, Mary & Baby Jesus figuerines in the background. They had little see-through balls lit with LED lights, the affect was really cool.

I didn't get any pictures of the nativity, but that was way amazing too. I think Mesa Temple has more lights, but SLC has a beautiful Nativity.

My friend Raila and her family have recently leased 2 horses out in Lehi and invited me to come visit this past Wednesday. I have been on vacation so I was able to go in the morning with her to see what a typical morning routine is like.

This is me next to their giant mule, Mona. When Raila told me about her I totally didn't believe how big she was but, WOW, she is huge.

This is Raila and I posing with her horse, Dusty. I optioned to not ride him, but Raila rode him very well. In the end I did help brush him and lead him back to his fenced area.

Last picture, me posing in front of Dusty. They have a second horse they are leasing, James, but he stayed by Sonny, aka Son of a Gun and another horse Pistol. I neglected to get a picture by King Edward, he is a loud donkey.

Really fun morning, even a nice breeze to not make it too hot.

I Changed My Own Oil!

My oil life warning has been going on for over a month now. Dad had time on Saturday to help me change my oil and rotate my tires. I was so proud of myself, I got so filthy but I was able to change my oil, oil filter and rotate all of my tires. I didn't know what to expect so I went into the garage wearing a shirt, board shorts and flip-flops. You cannot tell in the pictures but my arms and legs are dirty from the tires and my hands are covered in oil, even some splashed onto my face.

Dad was so awesome and didn't make me feel too bad about how little I knew about car maintenance. He was even the one who ran to grab a camera to take a picture, I told him it was too bad he missed me rotating my tires because no one would believe that either without a picture to prove it.

Fun Photo Shoot

I had pictures taken a couple of weeks ago down at Freestone Park by Leslie Smith who took pictures last year for me at Tempe Town Lake.
I picked a few of the ones I liked the best, she gave me like 19 but these are my favorites.

The sun is in my eyes pretty bad in this one but I like the shot, a different angle or something about it I like.

This one I like a lot too, just the sun and the light kind of streak across my face.

These last 2 are my favorites. I think they turned out the best. Next year I will wear a better shirt, I loved the color but the style kind of makes me look pregnant with the looseness. Which is too bad because I think it is a super cute and comfortable shirt.

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

I love fun days where everyone is themed and coordinated. At church today it was a sea of pink and red and white - absolutely amazing. I had a fun day, Mom got me a basket full of treats and a balloon that was part of a fundraiser for the young women in her ward to go to camp.

This next picture depicts Brenlie on my bed (wet). I LOVE her so much.

We spent our Valentines Day watching the Olympics and I watched some silly romantic comedies most of the night. Dad and the dogs went hiking so it was pretty quiet here.

Christmas 2009

Well it is better late than never. I finally downloaded the Christmas pictures from Mom's camera, there are maybe three on there. She didn't remember to take pictures until after everything was over and I asked, "did you get any pictures?" when she gasps,grabs her camera and takes some last minute ones.

This is Behr, he refuses to use his dog door when he sees that there are people in the family room. If we are not quick enough to see him out there he barks and barks until he is let in, so Dad snapped a picture of typical Behr.

This is Brian with his two DS games, they are different, it was supposed to be the big joke of Christmas but Brian didn't play into and so Dad didn't get the reaction he was going after. Brian thought he got a snowboard (which he isn't into anymore), then the wrong DS a little bit later, and then finally the DS he wanted very last. It is all on video - which is hilarious btw, if I knew how to upload video I totally would post it because as far as our family goes it is pretty funny.

This is Dad putting together the mount for my TV, it will save so much space in my room, except that my old TV is just sitting on my floor. It is pretty awesome though, it has high-def clarity, etc. . . makes for watching my new Tinkerbell DVD's pretty exciting.

Me, obviously, and what a great day. Christmas is a fun day to be with family and I think we spent the majority of the morning fairly harmoniously (for us) and then we had to take naps.

Merry Christmas!
