Christmas 2012

We traveled to Tennessee for Christmas this year! It was fun to be with the
 Lamberts and to have so much time to spend with them. 
We were able to go for 12 whole days - one of the perks of being an accountant
 is lots of vacation time :)

While we were visiting we mostly just spent time with family and relaxed. It was wonderful!!

of course, Michael has to do cookies for his teams

temple outing for Mormonza

the sleepy elf never disappoints!

Missionary Mitch

Mitch is officially a missionary! The cutest and happiest missionary ever. 

He nailed his farewell talk and impressed everyone in attendance.
Marie flew out for the weekend and it was such a blast to have her and Nora here with us. We did lots of cooking and just hanging around the house. 

Uncle Mike working his magic

the men in their fast Sunday matching ties
Kurt, Jack, and Sam have the same ones too! 

the last game of ping-pong

Dropping Mitch off at the MTC was hard for everyone except for him. He was just so ready to go!
We all got teary except for Mitch and Michael - they are basically robots. 

brotherly love
it's crazy to think that in two years these two will be speaking Russian to each other! 

Elder Woodhead fist pumped as he walked away. 
It was so perfectly him! 
We miss him tons already, but we could not be more proud of him 
and all the amazing things he is doing!
 Russia is one lucky country to get him for two whole years!

Happy Halloween!

Marlies and Dillon came over to carve pumpkins with us this year - it was such a fun night! 
Carving pumpkins isn't really my thing, so I roasted the seeds and made candy corn cookies instead. 

After Michael started carving he wished he had chosen a more simple design. 
I think it turned out really cool!

Happy birthday to Michael! 
I sure am glad this boy was born 24 years ago!!

Go Jazz, Go!

Ernst & Young had a recruiting event at the last preseason Jazz game, just one of the perks of the job that Michael definitely loves! 
Our good friends Jace and Jenna were there as recruits so it was so fun to hang with them and their adorable little Amelia.

The mini Jazz bear even made an appearance in our suite, so naturally Skye and I took advantage of the photo op!

Las Vegas Weekend

While in the middle of the chaos of the fall tax deadlines we decided it was a good idea to get a little trip on the calendar to look forward to. We found a great deal for a weekend in Vegas and booked it without thinking twice. 

It was a short trip, but was just the thing we needed to reconnect and relax before getting back to normal life. Most of our time was spend lying in the sun by this pool  - the perfect thing before the winter weather hits us in Utah!

Dinner Date

After many long nights during tax busy season and seeing very little of each other, 
it was so refreshing to go on a date with my man and actually spend a little time together! 

I forgot how much this guy makes me laugh, and thank heavens that he does!!

Mona Rope Swing

The Mona Rope Swings are a Provo ledgend and we finally ventured south to see it all for ourselves! 

I was terrified and really terrible at the whole thing, but it was still fun and we had a great time spending the Saturday together! Since Mitch separated his shoulder last week, he just came along for the ride and was the designated photographer. We'll have to go back when he's all put back together!

Summer Night in Park City

I have been a full-time employee of Ernst & Young since July 9th - more than a month! It is still so crazy to me that I am not going back to school in the fall, but I just go to work everyday instead. I guess I am closer to being a real adult. 

The most recent perk from the job was the Salt Lake office family day at the Park City Mountain Resort. Since it is the middle of our tax fall busy season and I have been working crazy hours, we weren't able to go for the entire day, but I snuck away from the office for a few hours so we could grab some dinner and catch a few rides. We tried out the zip line, Alpine slide, and Alpine coaster. 

Such a fun night and such to treat to get to spend some time together on a weekday evening!! 

I sure love this guy! 
Even when he does things like this...

The Bradburns Came to Visit!

The Bradburns came to visit for Marie's graduation from BYU and we are SO happy that they did! We miss them all so much; things just have not been the same since they moved away!! 

Their visit meant that we got to meet baby Nora for the first time - we fell in love! She is so little and such a chill baby. Of course we were so excited to play with Jack and Sam, too. Those boys are hilarious!! It was so great to spend so much time with Kurt and Marie - we just miss having them around and they always make things more fun! 

We miss the Bradburns already and hope they can make a trip back soon!! 

This just melts my heart!!

July 4th

We started our 4th of July on the lake in Ogden with the Chuggs, spent the rest of the day by the pool, and ended with some fireworks at the park.

 I love this holiday, and I love our country even more! I'm sure proud to be an American!
