Date Night!

I love going on dates with Darin!! Our most recent date was to go see the lights at temple square! Here are some pictures from our wonderful night!

A nice picture of the temple

The nativity from Japan!

Merry Christmas!!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did! It was so fun to just relax and spend some time with family! Christmas Eve we had a great time at Darin's parent's house with lots of family, cousins, delicious food, and excellent entertainment. The grandkids did an outstanding nativity--my favorite part was Noah being the donkey! Good times! Here is a picture of the whole clan from Chrsitmas Eve at Gunnerson's.

We also snuck down to my parents and mom gave us ALL matching p.j.'s--including little baby pants for Matthew! Here is a pic of us in our matching p.j.'s

Christmas morning was wonderful too! Santa found us again this year!! And, just like last year, he ate the milk and cookies we left out for him! (If you look close, you can see the crumbs)

Here is a cute picture of Darin looking so happy on Christmas morning!

Santa brought us some fun gifts! I got LOTS of my favorite candy bar (recess peanut butter cups) and recess peanut butter cups with banana cream. I also got the BEST movies in the WORLD!!! I got my all time favorite movie--Sleeping Beauty and Kung Fu Panda--both on blue ray. The best part is that on Sleeping Beauty, on the main menu page it shows "your kingdom" which shows the weather here in Bountiful! So when it is snowing here, it also shows it snowing on the Sleeping Beauty Castle! It shows the temperature here too! It is sweet!

Santa brought Darin some cologne, a book, a PS3 controller, a pen, and a few other things. Santa also got us a new Pot and Pan set, and a juicer extension for our kitchen aid. Here is a picture of Darin making fresh squeezed juice for our Christmas breakfast!

Our family Christmas breakfast was wonderful--as always! Very yummy! These are a few pictures from the morning!

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

I love Christmas!! Here are few pictures of some of our Christmas decorations! Darin and I found this tree for $13! What a steal! The Christmas tree ornaments are all from my Grandpa Welling!

Mom helped me set up this cute garland/ribbon around the door!

She also helped me make this cute wreath that matches our tree! Thanks for your help mom!

New Bathroom!!!!

Oh Happy Day!! We have a new bathroom!! We stayed with Darin's parents the last week while we got it done (thanks mom and dad!) It was fun to be with them, kind of like a little vacation!! But, when we came back from our little vacation, we came home to a new bathroom!! These are a few pictures of the process, and the final product!
