So, I wouldn't be starting the New Year right if I didn't procrastinate...it is what I do best. But, one thing I have not procrastinated is our Anniversary!! Today Scott and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Marian (Scott's mom) is here in town, and she was nice enough to stay with the boys last night so that we could go out to eat. It was really fun. We went to Bento and Noodles and sat at the Sushi bar...it was a bit awkward to sit there since we haven't ever done that before, but needless to say we tried some new rolls (with raw Salmon) and really enjoyed ourselves. After that we headed off for dessert and ended up at Macaroni Grill-yummy!! It was a really nice relaxing evening. Both the restaurants were nearly empty because everyone else was at home watching the Chargers game. It was a wonderful evening! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband!! We were reminiscing of days gone by...of our wedding day, our apartments, our first town home, school, jobs, our kids...the last 6 years have been a wonderful adventure and I am so grateful for the wonderful companion that I have!! I love you Scott!! Happy Anniversary!! So, now I will start to catch up...before we left for our Christmas break we first went to our ward Christmas Party and Talent show. I participated in a "synchronized swimming" act with some of the awesome sisters from my ward. We were called "mom-N-Sync"... I will try to get the video on here sometime, but here are some of the poses after our performance. If you can't tell I am the one in the middle wearing the red board shorts! Santa also showed up at the Ward Christmas party, which was a good thing, because this is the only Santa Dallin and Evan talked to this year. Actually when asked what Dallin wanted for Christmas he said as serious as those of you know him to be, very matter of factly: " A unicycle and a skateboard", I started to laugh...Scott!!! What 3 year old even knows what a unicycle is...mine does! Evan didn't really want anything to do with Santa, he stayed with me. Right after the ward party we headed up to Wrightwood to hang out with the Pratt's (Scott, Niki, Ellie and Autumn). Dallin just loves playing with Ellie Rose. He was even more excited, because when he woke up in Wrightwood, there was snow everywhere! My Scott was also very pleased because this meant a trip to the ski hill...just what the doctor ordered! We spent our first day playing in the snow. Dallin is fairly well equipped for the snow having been in Utah the last couple of winters (minus the snow boots and mittens-hence the pinks ones he is wearing in the photos...what can you do when your best friend has little girls...he didn't mind though, he just loved the snow). Evan on the other hand had nothing...so he is wearing an over sized bib, which worked perfectly and Autumn's black and pink outlined jacket and "metallic purple" boots. Again, he didn't even notice, he just wanted to be out with the boys. Dallin ran all over in the snow (once dad made some "walkway/tunnels" for him), Evan would get stuck and then not move. He kind of looked like the little brother on "A Christmas Story"...it was so cute! It was a perfect day and the Pratts are always so wonderful to us, we just love them!
I tried to post a video of Dallin skiing down the road-haha, but it didn't work. He really did awesome on the bunnyhill! He definitely get it from his dad, because I look like Peter Pan or Superman with my hands on my hips plowing down the mountain! I will post more of our vacation soon!
