We spent the big day here in Provo with the Rasmussen clan. It was so fun and we scored in the gift department--clothes, cologne, a Wii, watches, shoes, make-up, tools, etc. But, mostly it was fun to be with all the fam, with the three additions of 2008--Andrew, Carissa, and Ashlyn!
After Christmas, we flew out to California to defrost and spend some quality time with the Garlock crew! We went to Palm Springs, laid out (!!!!), shopped, explored San Diego (my new fav city!), watched movies, etc. It was so fun and flew by way too fast!
So now we are back in Provo, back to school, and frozen once more. But, loving life all the same :) Hope everyone is well!
Here are some pics from the holiday--enjoy!
Andrew got me a subscription to Real Simple for Christmas--Yay! He gave this to me on Christmas morning to show that.
Jace made "stockings" for all of us to put nice things about each other in, so we did that on Christmas Eve! He's so cute and getting so smart!
Jenna and Brennan helped Andrew and I make this awesome gingerbread house. We tried to make a pitched roof--but obviously failed! Still looks okay though.
Braxton was up ALL night on Christmas Eve. So, here he is finally waking up at NOON on Christmas day! He was still so excited about his gifts--as was Jace as well!
We went to this guy's house in Palm Springs who decorates his yard with "robots" made out of scraps and junk he finds. Strange to say the least! He's apparently mentally handicapped but brilliant--a second Rain Man.
I found me new FAVORITE restaurant in L.A.--Ketchup! It has five types of gourmet ketchup, three types of french fries, and some killer sloppy joes. Plus, a very chic atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!
