Remember when it used to be fall?


We went to Idaho at the beginning of November to see our nephew get baptized. There were a ton of people there and it was still gorgeous weather.


We had a lot of fun playing in the leaves of the huge trees in their yard!



I also had fun using my new camera that I got for my birthday to take pictures of my super cute nieces and nephews!


I love how much Ryan loves that stick.


Sarah was super girl and it was the cutest thing ever. She ran around the backyard like a super hero and just wanted me to take pictures and videos of her.


The colors were amazing! I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the trees were, and luckily there was tons of leaves to play in!



We had a blast and it was exciting to see Alex get baptized and wonderful to see all the family there to support him. Sometimes I wish it were fall again…

Whoa November

Where did you go? Seriously. Where? I have not updated for awhile and I have tons of pics of the past few weeks. So I will just show a few at a time and do a few posts over the next few days.

My family came over to our house to celebrate my bday a little while after my birthday. We had fun and I always love seeing my little sissy.


Birthday flowers from dad.


I have a bunch of precious Fall pictures from a quick trip we took to Idaho for my nephews baptism, but I will post those a little later.

Dan and I hit up the Black Friday sales this year (I always go shopping on Black Friday) and we scored pretty big. We pretty much did our entire Christmas (and then some), but we got some great deals!


We left the house at about 4:30 (I had to take a pic since I haven’t seen that hour in ages). I honestly love sleeping so this is saying a lot. I sleep a ton and go to bed super early and still take naps so you know there were some good sales or I would have been in my bed!


Aren’t we cute? Eww.

We got in line at Home Depot at about 4:50am and we were some of the first people in the store. Dan went to the tools section and I went to get some 4 ft porch Christmas trees. I couldn’t believe the madness. People were ramming me with their carts and others were trying to cut in line (don’t even try me…). I couldn’t believe it, but we got everything we came for! We got a 16 gallon wet/dry shop vac for $29! That was a big item and nearly everyone had a few of those in their carts!

We also got some awesome tools for our many projects. We also went to JC Penney (I got a super warm and cute down coat for $50-usually $200!), Target (SD memory card for our cruise), FYE, Lowes, Shopko, and RC Willey. We got a lot of Christmas gifts covered as well and our car was packed!


I ended up having to work most of the day (from home luckily!), so Dan had fun unpacking our bounty and checking out all his new tools! I love the tools almost as much as he does because it means more projects! And he is going to build me some food storage shelves in the basement.


Overall, our Black Friday excursion was a big success despite the gross lack of sleep, and the ramming incident at Home Depot. We had fun together and we’re really excited about the great deals we found! Did you guys go shopping? What did you get? Did you see any fights break out? I kind of wish I had…
