need one?

If anyone needs a Wii I've got one that I can sell to you for 300 bucks. It's brand new and would make a perfect last minute Christmas gift. I don't want to ship it so you'd have to pick it up. If you are interested let me know.



You guessed it,this recipe is from my sister Lori. Isn't she amazing? These cookies are so easy and so delicious! You need one package of Oreos and one and a half bags of Andes baking chips (they are easy to find at Walmart). All you do is pull the Oreos apart and scrape out the filling, then you melt the Andes baking chips in a pot on the stove on low heat (the microwave would probably work even faster). Then you dip the Oreos in the melted chocolate. After they are covered in delicious mint chocolate I take them out with a fork (I hold them over the pot for a while to let all the extra chocolate drip off). Then I place them on parchment paper. They taste kind of like a grasshopper cookie. Amazing. I am giving them for neighbor gifts this year. I put a picture of a few different ways to wrap them. They would make a great teacher gift too.


Temple Square

We went to Temple Square to see the lights with our friends and it was amazing. We didn't stay long because it was freezing and we had the kids with us. I can't believe they lasted as long as they did. They were definitely numb by the time we left. It was so pretty, there were lights everywhere. I love seeing the temple in December.



Grandma got to sit on Santa's lap too!

We had a Christmas party at my parents tonight and while we were sitting around playing games Santa walked through the door. He was so sweet and most of the kids loved him. West wouldn't get too close unless Kev was holding him. It was so much fun. Thanks Mom and Dad for all the fun we had! The party made me so excited for Christmas, the boys are at such fun ages. I can't wait!


Decorating cookies

We decorated cookies the other night with the boys and Garrett loved every minute of it. West didn't like frosting the cookies because they looked messy. He wouldn't even taste a cookie with frosting on it, but don't worry G finished off all of the extras. It was fun and messy!



Jessica and Matt invited us to go to Thanksgiving Point to see Santa and it was so fun. West wasn't very interested in Santa, in fact he was scared to death of him. Garrett loved sitting on his lap all by himself. They gave us a picture and it didn't cost us a penny! When we were done with Santa we went to the little ice cream place and they give out kiddie cones for free! I loved how fun and cheap this little night out was. Thanks Matt and Jess, we had a lot of fun!
