We have been really busy the last few weeks! Last weekend we had The Dinkins Christmas party!I had fun Brandon couldnt make it but I went with out him and had a good time. That same night Brandon, me, Ginger, Shaun,the boys and Tiawanna went to see lights. Carson had the best time! Its so cool to see kids into Christmas. Yesterday was my work Christmas party. We went to Forest Lake Country Club for lunch. It was really good! Thank you Dr. Hutch I had a great time. I love where I work and I am so glad that I have my new job so thank you to everyone who helped me get this job!

Brandon got a zero turn lawn mower a few weeks ago and he has been like a little kid with a new toy! This morning he woke me up at 6 something saying he wanted to get up and get the lawn looking good! Ok well dont wake me next time! The lawn does look good thank you!

A day in DC to a day in NYC!!

This weekend I made my way up to D.C. for the weekend. Friday my dad had the day off so we headed down town to look around. I got to meet the President! He is a little shorter than what you would think! (LOL)

Then it was down to the Capital. We were able to take a tour inside which was really cool. The best thing about D.C. is that everything is free so you can go and look around and not feel bad if you only have a hour or three.

A few more stops while we were down town!

Then on Saturday it was off to New York! Which I have never been. We went on a travel bus which was nice because you didnt have to worry about traffic of parking!

First stop was to get some breakfast! We got up at 4am that morning so by the time we got there we needed something!

Then you know me I forgot to bring a hat and it was a warm 30 something degrees so I talked a vendor down to $5 for a hat. worth every penny!

We stopped in at the M&M store. Sorry Shaun I was going to pick you up some peanut ones but they were $12 a lbs so I just took a picture by a big M&M!

After some shopping in a few stores or I should say waiting in long lines it was time for some lunch at Planet Hollywood!

We ended the trip with a walk by the
Christmas tree and Radio city! Which was so packed you felt like a ping pong ball! We had a really good time! And we even got SNOW at my dad's house!!! Thank you Dad and LaAnna for having me up this weekend I had a great time!

We had a great Thanksgiving at our house! Well not our house but we went to Brandon's uncle Byron's house. We ate a lot of good food and then went on a golf cart ride which was a little high speed for me. Look on Ginger's blog and you can read more about that. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Long time no post!

Its been a while since I have posted anything. We have been really busy. Last weekend we had the Family Fun Day. Which I forgot to bring my camera to so you will have to look at Tonya's blog. It was a really good day to have the fund raiser. Then after that it was off to a baby shower for a girl in my ward. She is having a little boy! Then on sunday we had our Evening of Excellence for Young Women which was great! I am so blessed to be serving with such great women and happy that I can be there for the young women. This thursday was Carson's birthday the big 2!!! We had dinner and cake up at Brandon's grandparents house it was a lot of fun. And as you can see the birthday boy had a great time! This weekend we are off to the beach so I will take some pictures while we are down there.

Early Christmas Gift!

Thank you Grandma! I have been wanting a antique to put in the house. So my Grandma told me she would buy me one for Christmas if I found one. Ginger and I found one that wasn't all that bad in Camden. However this weekend Lesie and I had a work meeting and after that she told me about a cool place in Columbia to look and I found it! I think it is really great Brandon doesn't like it but its mine now.
