Our wonderful Christmas

Ok so Christmas was great. I wanted to include some pics of Christmas morning at Bodie's home. We all got some great gifts. I got some great new shoes as well as a cute purse, and a jewelry armoire. (which I have been wanting forever.) I also got some new kitchen knives. Bodie got a p90x (and was TOTALLY suprised) and a nerf gun, some other toys, and a book. We both got great stocking stuffers, games, decorations for the house, christmas money, and lots more. It was fun. The rest of the family was really pleased with their gifts, Gloria got some really really cute wall decorations, and a foot massager, and John got some new clothes, tools, and a few other things. Brandee got some really cute clothes, a chi flat iron, and cute scentsy. Just when we thought the present opening was over Gloria suprised the family with a Wii. We had a blast playing that all week. It was fun spending my first Christmas at his house. Last year for our first one we did our own thing with the two of us in Cedar. It was nice to be around family again. We were able to visit so many family and friends that we hadn't seen in way too long. The gifts were great, but being able to relax and spend time with family and friends was definitely better. On Saturday my dad's side of the family all went up Huntintion canyon to go snow mobiling. My Dad came from Salt Lake and brought a snow mobile and it was a blast..although it was only 0 degrees outside. We had a blast the entire 5 days we were there. Now we are back in Cedar, back to work, getting ready for the New Year! I think we are going to go the the First Night in St. George. It was pretty fun last year. I hope all of you had a great Christmas this year, it was great seeing all of you! Happy New Year!!

Every year in December the girls get together to have dinner and catch up on life. All of our lives are so crazy, and things are always changing. We are all pretty much spread out across the state. We hardly ever get to see each other. We have made it a great tradition to meet up at least once a year. I think this was our 3rd year. We always eat at the same Applebees in Orem. It's so much fun seeing everyone. Being that all of us went to hair school together, except Nancy, our hair is always different when we see each other. It's funny. This year we missed a couple friends, Beth couldn't make it, and Tiff is on her mission in Florida! We also had a new addition to the party, Patricia's baby Baylor!! Isn't he so cute? Chaliese will have one by next Christmas, and I wouldn't be surprised if some other's do too. We'll see! We also spent some time up at my Dad's in Salt Lake. Since we cant make it up there for Christmas, we did our Christmas this weekend with them. We had a great time over the weekend and made it back to Cedar. Next we will be heading to Emery County to visit more family and friends over the Christmas holiday. I get to visit with Monique, and Jessica. I havent seen them FOREVER! I appreciate the amazing friends, and family that I have. They are the BEST in the whole world. I want to give a shout out to them! I love you guys!

The picture doesn't do justice, but Chaliese is 5 1/2 months along! She is due on April 15th, and has a cute little belly! She is having a boy.

Dad and Bode had fun playing a game of darts..

Salon Christmas Party

Saturday night we had my work christmas party at Ninja Seafood and Steakhouse. It was so much fun! We sat around the grill and watched our food being cooked and flipped all around! It was awesome. The japanese chefs are amazing at what they do. They are so talented. Bodie, unfortunately, did not catch the seafood in his mouth...dang it! I had to use the kiddy chopsticks..haha. I wish I had pictures. The food was absolutely amazing. I had steak and chicken, and Bodie had steak and salmon. Man was it yummy! Janelle is so sweet, she paid for all our meals, and also gave us each a box of See's Chocolates! Even more yummy! The night was really fun, and it was snowing outside the whole time. It was really pretty. I love the girls and pete that I work with. They are so neat and fun, and I learn so much from them. Jess is from Vegas, Linz is from Texas, Janelle is from Southern Cal, and Cat is from Hollywood. I am not sure about Pete. They all bring such different styles to the salon. It's awesome. What a fun night! oh and p.s. finals are over and man am I happy. I have finished the last math class that I EVER have to take. That's a really good feeling. Can't wait to graduate in May!

We had SO much fun!
