Holiday time!

We love the FALL.
We love sweater weather, and the changing colors.
We love all the holidays, and time spent with our family.

Here are some of our favorite family traditions:

Birthday Parties- a full day of celebration, ending with a nice dinner and a homemade cake.
Oktoberfest- We eat bratwurst and sauerkraut, potato pancakes and spaetzle.
Halloween-Going the Pumpkin Walk in Logan, walking around and drinking hot chocolate.
Thanksgiving- Camping at the beach in California with all our extended family- a full week of food and fun with all the cousins!
Christmas Eve- Going out for Mexican food, and watching "The Christmas Story" multiple times.
Christmas Day- Cooking a fancy six-course French meal, and eating for hours!
St. Patrick's Day- all food gets dyed green!
Valentines Day- all food gets dyed pink!
Pioneer Day- We cook a Dutch oven dinner in the backyard, and even make fresh butter in a jar.

Hey there! I am doing great, thanks! We are living in New Mexico, which is where my husband is from. We used to live in Orem, but we moved almost 2 yrs. ago so my husband could go into law enforcement here. We do have a couple kiddos. We have 2 daughters...our oldest, Kaci, is almost 3 1/2 and our youngest, Brynley, is 18months...they are a ton of fun and definitely keep us on our toes! What's your email and I'll send you an invite to our blog! Where in UT are you guys?
