I REALLY wanted it to snow before we left so that Brooke could see it for her first time. I was selfish and hoped that it would come the day before we left so that we could see it but then not have to deal with it and freeze to death….
My wish was granted. Back to sunny California
We have to start off with the most exciting part of my day. As soon as we got to my Aunt’s house she said she couldn’t wait a minute longer to give me Brooke’s present.
Santa costume 2012. If I had a washing machine then Brooke would be wearing this outfit every single day until Christmas. Is there anyone reading this that is a seamstress because I will pay you big bucks to make me a matching dress (along with a hat and the leggings) for me.
Last night we did a pre-Christmas celebration because I am leaving today and my cousin will be in Tennessee with her husband for the holidays.
I have really missed my family get together spreads of food because I don’t know if you have noticed yet but I really like food. Veggie trays and cheese and crackers.
For dinner we had salad, the best carrots (butter, carrots and brown sugar in the crock pot), a pork roast with applesauce and cranberries, cheesy potatoes, salad and sparkling cider (us Utahns sure know how to get crazy).
After dinner we got busy decorating the tree, playing some games and watching sports.
We opened some presents and I got the best present of all… my beloved candy corn from Mer. (PS this was Brooke’s fourth outfit of the day….)
Magic bars for dessert. All I know was that there was german chocolate cake mix, oreos, condensed milk, chocolate chips and butter. Add some ice cream and you will be happy.
I am going to skip the part about saying goodbye to people because that wasn’t pretty…. especially saying goodbye to my cute little grandma.
What time are you working out today?
-Early city so that I can make it to the airport by 8!
I have a layover in LA for a few hours today so please tell me a joke, funny story, something about your weekend to keep me and Brooke entertained.
Anyone else get snow this weekend? Feelings towards snow?
-Pretty to look at it but I can live without it:) Actually running in it is pretty fun too.
