O' Christmas tree

These are some pictures of our Christmas lights, and decorations. Some one put sunglasses on the bigger deer, I will get a closer picture of it and put it on my blog. No one in my family knows who did it... It's better than "mounting" the deer, I think it's cute!
Our Christmas tree-- It was hard, but we went artificial this year.

Birthday surprise

These are the flowers Chris gave me for my "38th" birthday, I can't be that old!!!!!
The surprise part is... I work at the high school with the Resource Department, I was sitting in a regular Biology class with a student, in walks Braden and a couple of his buds. Braden has his i-pod speakers, and Tim has a camcorder. They just stand there and keep watching out the door, I know something is going on at this point... Braden turns on the music and Aaron Esplin, a guy I work with comes in dancing and shaking his butt, and sings "Happy Birthday" to me, along with the whole class. Come to find out, Chris set this whole thing up with Aaron, Coach Homer (the Biology teacher) and Braden. I was wearing a red sweater that day, and I could feel that my face was as red as my shirt!

Snow Day!

Snow on Molly's Nipple!!

This is such a rare sight to see snow in Dixie...
Our house and Braden's car covered in snow and still getting more

The bus send-off on our way out of Hurricane! (above) Braden warming up before the game at Rice Eccles Stadium

The mighty "Kick-off" team, Braden is #32

The saddest part of the game. We lost by 3 points. Their kicker hadn't made it all game long- it was tied just seconds before 4th quarter's end, they went down and kicked for a field goal.... You could probably guess that he made this one!
Our team worked so hard and had such a good season!
This will be the last football blog of the year.

The Bufadora on Ensenada!

Cabo San Lucas

Our ship is behind us.
We had to be
over to the island.
This was a fun day of
snorkeling, shopping,
and playing on the beach.
We were able to see the
Sea of Cortez and the
Pacific Ocean from our beach.

Night Life!

Nia loved the night life!
But we didn't love going to
find her all hours of the night!


Braden and Kyler trying lobster
for their 1st time!
Isn't cruise food wonderful?
And they could eat all they want
without having to worry about paying!

Captain's Dinner

The "Melting" Chocolate cake was the BEST!!!

Hurry up and wait!

Waiting in line to get on the cruise ship.
