Kaitie's Goodbye Dinner...

:( It always makes me so sad when we have to say bye to Kaits! We all went to On The Border for a big delicious dinner on Kaitie's last night here before going back to school. I'm so glad she got to be here for a few weeks, but we sure do miss her! Love you Kaitie!

Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and Phoenix Zoo Lights!

Christmas day is always filled with lots of fun! Because we try and spend the majority of Christmas Eve with Ken's family...we spend most of Christmas Day with my family. Ken and I do our own little Christmas morning tradition. This year he spoiled me! First he gave me the perfume I've really been wanting, Vera Wang Sheer Veil. And then he says, there's one more thing! He pulls out this cute little bag from Jared and got me a BEAUTIFUL right hand ring. I am so blessed by my love. After spending some time together we hurry over to see what my brothers and sisters received from Santa. Also, to find out what we got from Santa. One of the gifts being Seinfeld scene-it! :) We then relax, hang out, and fill up with lots of yummy food! It is a very nice, do nothing, and enjoy day! It is then tradition to go to the movies. This year we went to see Bedtime Stories. It was cute, but I was expecting it to be a little funnier. Just overall a wonderful day with my sweet family and my most giving and adorable sweetheart.

Yummm... have you ever been to the Salt Cellar? I hadn't! It used to be one of Ken's family traditions to go there every New Year's Eve. This year Ken's parents treated us! It was so delicious! I had the yummiest filet mignon and crab. And they crack the crab and lobster for you right there at the table! I almost was a little sad about this because I find that cracking the crab it part of the adventure of eating it. It is like finding treasure...haha...but, I think that's just me! :) After eating there, we went and saw the movie Seven Pounds. It was good, but had one scene in there that... well, let's just say we didn't approve of. Ha! After that, we went to see my family... they were singing karaoke at a family friend's house. We went back to ring in the new year with Ken's parents, but unfortunately his mom got really sick... :( So, we let them rest and rushed back to do the big countdown with my family. Overall, it was a really fun night. And we realized how truly blessed we are and how blessed we have been through our whole marriage!
Some pics of the fun night!

Unfortunately Cody wasn't there, but I guess we'll let this one slide...he was getting ready to propose in Montreal, Canada! :)

Lastly, we enjoyed every second we had with Ken's sisters and their families while they were in town. One of the fun thins we did was visit the zoo lights! We were even set to go with our own little container of hot chocolate, complete with candy cane sticks and marshmallows! That is definitely the way to go!
Connor all bundled up... brrrr... it was so cold that night!
Next to the cutie elephant!
