Black Friday Recap....

Thanksgiving was a blast! I had so much fun with all my family. Macy was not able to come because roads in Montana were either closed or frozen same with Idaho. It was really sad but at least Drew's family lives in Bozeman too so they had somewhere to go for thanksgiving.

Black Friday Shopping is a tradition in our family... our motto- Divide and Conquer! Walmart did part of their Black Friday at Midnight so we all went to that- even Brett came with me. It was really crazy there. Then Alyssa and I went to Shopko. We had a big list of things to get for ourselves as well as others that were at other stores. We got there around 2am and were about 7th or so in line. We took a heater and blankets and stayed really warm.... We got everything on our list and were home and in bed by 6. I am still trying to catch up on my sleep and have been a bit grouchy because of it the last 2 days. The people in our family who went to Target did not have the same luck we did and came home empty handed- I guess it was pretty crazy over there. :) I'm glad I went to Shopko-

Thanksgiving is almost here!

I am getting excited for the holidays... Family will be arriving tomorrow night. My sister Macy and her Husby Drew are driving from Montana- Alyssa and Kellen are coming from Ogden, and my aunt and uncle are driving in from Northern California. I am a bit worried about them all driving in the cold snowwy weather. There has been a blizzard warning put out and that is supposed to hit this evening and all through the night. I am glad that the rest of us live so close and will not have to drive so much. We are having Thanksgiving in Orem at a church because there will be 30 something of us here this year. I just love big family get togethers. The only family missing is Keith's. We will miss them.
Another exciting thing is Black Friday shopping!! This has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. The last 2 years were spend out of state with the Smith's so I have missed out so I am excited for all the hustle and bustle of all the crazy people who get up at 2 in the morning to wait in line in the freezing cold.
My immediate family will be getting a new family picture taken this weekend. We do not have one with Andrew added except ones from their wedding.
So that is the madness/funness I have have going on this week. But today and tomorrow will be spent on homework projects and laundry folding :(

New blog layout & new camera

I redesigned my craft blog so now it has videos that I have made, my photography portfolio, all my crafts and also a place for my other projects- school, painting, drawing (I will post those later)

I am SO excited for christmas this year... well its more like the first week of January when I will get my only gift from brett... but its a big one and I have been wanting it for a long time. It is the just barely released last month Nikon D7000- Isn't it so pretty... oh I cant wait. - I am doing my very first wedding in April so I will have to get used to it pretty fast. :)
