Notice Anything???

See anything different about our blog?

~Merry Christmas~

Todd and Whitney

Turkey Day

This Thanksgiving Holiday was one I won't be able to forget ever! Thanksgiving Day itself was pretty normal. It was our year to spend Dinner with Todd's family. I love that both of our families are very relaxed and low key about holidays. We had a fabulous dinner and ate a ton of fabulous food. After dinner we headed over to my parents house to see all my extended family and enjoy a little dessert. We love being so close to both of our families. It makes it so nice to see everyone during the holidays.

Now for the part I won't forget. My brother Justin and his family were able to join us the weekend before Thanksgiving to play for a few days. They were gone during the week but then returned the weekend after Thanksgiving. That same weekend my other brother Nate and his family showed up. This was the first time we have all been together as a family since before Todd and I got married.

We didn't do much but sit around and chit-chat, eat, and take family pictures. I only have one picture on my camera from the week but it's of 2 of my favorite kiddo's. We can't wait until we get another weekend where we can all be together again!

They were very focused on the episode of Curious George they were watching!


For my birthday this year Todd let me go to Colorado. I haven't been back there since I lived there when I was 9 years old. I have always wanted to go back. I really loved living there. This summer my good friend Heather and her family moved there so why not go now that we had a free place to stay. My friend Tara and I left and were there for 5 days.

We started our trip up at a ski resort called Breckenridge. It was FREEZING but absolutely beautiful.

After Breckenridge we headed down to the Denver area. We went and saw the Denver Temple one evening. We also went to Parker which was the town I lived in.

I also got to go visit for a day my best childhood friend Jaime! She lives in Boulder and we had a blast shopping (which is what we do best). Sadly, I didn't get any pictures while I was with her so I guess I will have to go visit again soon!


We had the chance to go to the corn maze again this year. We went with our good friend Tara as well as Jon and Sarah. We got lost in the corn maze for a while and then ended the night doing our favorite thing... Pumpkin Blasters!

The school I worked at this fall had their annual Halloween Parade. I took a few pictures of my students. They all dressed up pretty cute!

Notice the boy in the pink granny outfit...

All the 3rd Grade teachers decided to dress up as Pirates. Here we are!
