No more winter!

Disclaimer: for all of you winter lovers, this post is not for you. get over it.

Well it's official. I have decided there is no more need for winter. I do enjoy winter activities, but we haven't been having very good snow at all, so there really is no point, right? As i eat my words as i look out the window to FIND IT'S SNOWING! blast! I do love the rain, and i am ok with it, as long as it's not freezing and eventually turns to snow! January is just gloomy and ugly. Good thing it's almost over! Basically i just hate being cold! and tend to get cold very easily! February is just around the corner, which means Valentine's Day is coming up (one of my favorite holidays)...something to look forward to. and spring will be right around the corner from that, which means WARMER weather will come right along too! I hope :) Things are looking up on this yucko wintery January day. 

One day soon i hope i'll be able to view these beauties and be very warm and not shivering :)

i miss the lake, the beautiful flowers, i want to lay on the grass, feel the warm summer wind, walk through the beautiful trees in the spring (i don't think i've ever really done that, but looking at this picture, right about now i want to!)

this last one is really more of a wish ;)

take me to a beach.

that is all. :)

{Front runnin' to Gateway}

Friday the whole family rode down on the Front runner to Gateway in Salt Lake. We ate at CPK {yum!} and had cake all to celebrate my Dad's birthday! 

I pretty much let the pictures tell and show of the night.
Pictures are always better.

There's never a dull moment with my family.

It was such a fun night with my favorite people! :)

Best Friend's Wedding

Thursday Preston's mission companion/bff ;) finally tied the knot!  Eric and Chantel are the funnest, nicest couple around and we we're excited we got to be apart of their happy happy day!

Outside the Salt Lake temple

Their reception was a party and very cute and colorful!
Full of cupcakes, cottoncandy, a photobooth, and lots and lots of dancing!


hooray for love and marriage!

First Christmas & New Years!

This year was our first Christmas together, and it sure was a special one.
We had a fun ski day up at Basin with Preston's family. 
Always good to get back up on the slopes (especially when it's been a few years for me)


Mason, Jeff, Prest, Me, Stacey, Poppa John

Christmas Eve

cookies for santa :)

Christmas morning

Santa spoiled us!

~~~ New Years in Vegas ~~~

That was quite an event for New Years, if you can imagine.

 Definitely will be our last during the New Year season. WAY too crowded! WAY too many drunk people :) Yet we managed to still have a blast!

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season! We enjoyed every minute of the break!
We're so lucky to have such awesome families!

We're looking forward to what's coming this 2010 year! ;)
