This year Thanksgiving was at my parents house and was a lot of fun! We met my parents at the tennis club early in the A.M. and played for a while. It's really funny to watch John and my mom play against each Alexis had her new boyfriend join our family for Thanksgiving dinner. He is from Australia and has a delightful accent. Here are some pics from the day!

Even Kristen was able to come to Thanksgiving...via Skype that Elle is absolutely adorable!...and Kristen too!

This next section is dedicated to my Aunt Susie. She was unable to make it to dinner because she has had a recent knee procedure. Even though she was not present, she sent her family with fantastic food to add to our Thanksgiving feast!
Here are Susie's famous caramel brownies...they are pretty much the best brownies ever...just saying... :)
Here are some of her homemade rolls.
Here are the pumpkin rolls that she made. John loves them. He actually told me this afternoon that he wouldn't mind living with Kenny and Susie due to Susie's

Thanks Susie for all of the delish rolls and treats! We love you and hope you feel much better soon!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

A Little Remodeling...

Here are some before and after pictures of our guest bathroom. John painted my walls a tan color and the rest was up to me! Alexis was in town this she was able to go shopping with me. It was a blast having her tag along. I made her go to about 5 stores with me!
Here is a before picture of half the bathroom. It was navy and cream mostly.
We added some other colors to the bathroom and some fun things from the Hobby Lobby.
Note to all Hobby Lobby Fans:the entire store is pretty much 1/2 off!!!

Here is the shower curtain. All that is left to do is add some pictures to the wall. They are coming soon!

The Rest of October...

I have been neglecting the blog lately. It has been super busy around here, as I'm sure it is for everyone else. Can you believe it is November already? Here are some things that happened in the month of October...
Alexis won tickets to a Colbie Caillat concert at the Arizona State Fair. She took me as her date and we had a great time. I heart Alexis. She is such a fun sister!

We won a frog together by playing darts!
Here is John, Charles, and Jack when we went to Miami AZ.
Scott helped us celebrate the Fall by bringing over some Candy Cane ice cream and hot fudge for sundaes...I could seriously eat the whole tub!
John and I gave each other an early Christmas present this year and got quads. John has a red one and I have a blue one. Scotty came over and was nervous about riding a quad, so...John gave him a tour of the neighborhood while Scott clanged for his life.
Happy Halloween!!! We had 2 little Bumble Bees running around all night!
I have been called to work with the Young Women in our ward as the Secretary. I'm way excited. We have great youth in our ward!
3 more classes for my Masters Program to be complete. The next couple of weeks are going to be insane with school, work, and church. School is almost over!!!
