Christmas eve...

Christmas eve was a blast! I love having our annual extended family get together to go caroling on Christmas Eve. And then having my entire immediate family together in the same room to open presents. My family does our entire Christmas on Christmas Eve- we wait for santa and then open gifts till the early hours of the morning. Although there is mo longer anyone in my family who believes in Santa Clause anymore. It was a really good Christmas this year!

Christmas day we got to talk to Nathan which was really good. He is doing well and it was good to hear his voice. We had breakfast with Mom and Dad Smith and then they were off the airport pretty early- mom is going to see Mandi's family in Columbia MO.

I love Christmas and cant believe it is over... but next year will be here before i know it.

On another note- today is Brett and my 5 year anniversary. Time has gone by so fast. But I am so happy that I married Brett. He is amazing and is a trooper for putting up with me.

Christmas with the nieces

We were so so happy that Trevor and Elise and their 4 girls were able to spend 4 days here in Orem this Christmas. We thought that they were not going to be able to be here so it was awesome to spend time with them. Those girls are the cutest girls that I know and it was fun to play with them. We did Christmas on Friday before they headed out. It was really fun... the girls got lightsabers with were a big hit. We miss them already but will see them this summer!


5 year anniversary getaway

For our 5 year anniversary which is on Monday we went up to Salt Lake to spend a few days. We stayed at the Hilton and they upgraded our room to a big room for free since we were celebrating a big anniversary. We went to Temple Square to see the lights one night and the net night went to a nice dinner and to a movie. It was really fun to just get away for the weekend just the two of us.

FInals are over!

It is the time of year that both Brett and I have been waiting for.... Finals are over and we are back to a normal life... at least for a few weeks. At one point I had 8 projects in the works plus I had 2 final tests so it got a bit stressful for a while. Brett did really well on all of his finals and despite being really stressed and working practically full time he managed to get a 3.75 GPA. I'm so proud of him. He is half way done with his Masters program and he is so happy about it. I did pretty well this semester as well and I learned SO much. I don't have my final grades but I think I have all A's and A-'s except in drawing- So I guess I'm pretty proud of myself too. :)

Now I am just at home working on a few crafts and a video for my cousins court of honor. Brett's work schedule is really busy now that Christmas is so close so he is working long hours. I am so excited for my sister to get here from Montana on Saturday and even more exited for Christmas!

Brett and I are going to Slat Lake for a couple nights this weekend for a getaway/5 year anniversary celebration. I'm not sure what we are going to do but it will be fun.

Brett's 27th Birthday

My Honey B turned 27 yesterday. He was able to get off work around 4 so we headed to a movie- We saw Unstoppable and it was really good. Then we headed over to Red Lobster for dinner. It was fun to just get away from work, school and homework for a while to be together. When we got home, We had some cake that I made and I sang to him. The girls enjoyed some cake too. :)

Happy Birthday Sweetie!
