How did this happen? My dad is a BYU graduate. I am a BYU graduate. Four of my five siblings are BYU grads. And now my two little angels are UTES fans! I guess when one's husband and in-laws are hard core Utah fans, it's bound to happen. It just goes to prove that when one lets the "fiery darts of the adversary" influence you, you are bound to fall.

Christmas Cookies

Yes, we finally made some Christmas cookies. We made them last night for our belated FHE activity. The boys had a lot of fun. Jake got super creative and mixed the green and red/pink frosting. Ben just liked eating the frosting by the spoonful. Marty asked if we made sugar cookies growing up, and I can't say we did. I know. I missed out. But I think I know why my mom opted not to make sugar cookies. It's a pain in the rear to clean up, especially after the two-year-old pours sprinkles EVERYWHERE!

Happy Anniversary

Happy anniversary, Marty. The past nine years have flown by. I have laughed more with you in the last nine years than I did the previous twenty-six years before I met you. I love you. I love our boys. I love our journey through this crazy life together. You keep me grounded and positive. You are my everything. I love you!

Annual Gingerbread House FHE 2009

We had our second annual Gingerbread House FHE last night. Jodi, Don, and the girls joined us again. Grandma and Grandpa Asay came also to try their hands in jolly designing. I think we all had fun. The adults did most/all of the constructing while the little darlings helped with the decorating. Of course, I think the kiddies ate two candies for every one that made it onto the houses. Thanks again to our friendly Costco for having the kits. There's no way I'm mixing, cutting, and baking all of those pieces. I tried my hand at that six years ago, and it's WAY too time consuming.
Of course, my favorite picture is the one of Ben pointing to his brain!
