A most wonderful day:)

Awesome Christmas.



Brandon and I made our Gelwix home movies into DVD's (still not done though...there's a lot of videos) but it made my mom cry....excellent! Lining up to see what Santa brought!



Wicky always finds the most comfortable spot:)
Mmmmm...breakfast right before we get to talk to Keaton.


My Aunt Von and me.


Best Christmas ever!

Christmas Eve

Brandon's family does an annual Christmas sushi dinner. Usually we go to his Aunt Keiko's house and make it, but this year we went to a really great restaurant. They almost didn't let me in due to my pale white skin and round eyes...not Wasian enough for them. Luckily I was the token minority, so luck was on my side.;)


Uncle Russ and Aunt Keiko
Brandon and his step-mom's neice DJ and nephew Blake. They are adorable and they looovveee Brandon.
Brandon and Pat making their cousin Chris feel quite uncomfortable...

We went to the Cathedral of the Madeleine carol service with Brandon's family. It was great and made me feel like I was in a medieval movie...really cool.

The Latest and Greatest Happenings...

Brandon, his brother Pat, and I were going to go snowshoeing for a blissful holiday excursion. Turns out the pipeline didn't have enough snow, so we just went on an adventure filled hike. Gorgeous and our tiny babies had a blast.





Pat turned 30 so we went with Brandon's family to the Tavernacle to have a festivus celebration. It was their parents' first time to the Tavernacle, so it was fun to see their reactions to the songs and things the pianists say that are a little naughty...:)
Very serious brothers.
B and his fabulous mom.
What a cute family:)

And best of all, our ugly sweaters. Thank goodness my dear mother saved her seasonal sweater collection, because it has come in handy many times. You can't tell very well, but I did the Utah poof on my hair. I tried the best I could, and it is actually really hard to do. No one ever needed a Bump-It more than I did at that moment. Brandon did the mid-90s hair spike, and all that was missing from making his outfit amazing was some frosted tips.

My Day of Alllllll Days!

In honor of my blessed birth, I decided I was too sick to do anything(work) but go to Snowbird last week. What a genius plan because it was one of the best days ever! We rode in knee deep to waist deep powder the entire day.:)


Food is soooooo delicious when you're on the mountain for some reason. The chili I had may have saved my life. Just incredible.


Every time I turned around he was eating snow. Now, I like eating snow...but the amount he eats is just ridiculous!

Best Day Ever!

Precious. Just precious.
Now I'm 29 and very wise and mature.

Halllllllsssssweeennnnsss!

A festivus All Hallows Eve! Brandon's brother had a rockin' party at his house, so I went as an incredibly hot German bar maid, and Brandon went as a little person in a giant hat. I put the video of his costume at the end. He's wearing some of it in this pic, but you can't really tell...:)


Pat...He's Justin Timberlake in the SNL short "Dick in a Box"

And more appropriately for my job, I was a breathtaking Alice in Wonderland...and yes, Halloween parades in schools are still alive and well!
