Horse Ridding!!!

I have started taking Horse Ridding Lessons!!!!!!! I had my third lesson today! I use to love to ride horses with my friends when I was little, but it was always on back!!!! Sooo now.. I have decided to start learning how to really ride a horse by myself... I am loving it!!! Of course so far I just sit on the horse doing excercises while being pulled... which I love!!! It is just that bonding with the horse that feels awesome!!!!

Monterey, California!!

Igor got a great new job in Monterey, California! He started the beginning of April! He is teaching Russian to the Military! I drove him and stayed a week to help him get settled, then I left him and my car and flew home! I went back for a week last week, and saw some amazing beautiful scenery! My mother will be joining me for another week trip on the 18th of June! I can't wait to show her all the beautiful places!
I guess I am silly for not being there with him yet, but for now I am staying in Logan and enjoying my family, and taking care of my wonderful clients!!!!

I took this picture from my phone! This is Big Sur it is just South of Monterey!!


This is Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park... It is my dream paradise, notice the waterfall! The blue of the water is soo much prettier than all the rest of the of the beaches!!

My Gift to my lucky 5!! Well, ok it turned out to be 3!!


I am making a blanket with the blocks in the back ground and decided why not make them a bit bigger and stitch them onto pillows for my gift!! My Friend, Donna, has 3 blankets with this pattern that her mom made her while we were in highschool!! I was always jealous cause I thought it was soo beautiful! So I had my mom look at it and she figured out the pattern, and I followed her instructions and, poof, it turned out just like Donna's!!!! It is hard to see in a picture but the rose petals are layered and stand out!
This has been a fun pattern to learn and it is pretty easy!!!

It was a hard decision to make!

My first LARGE afghan

So this is the first afghan, I learned how to crochet on!! Actually almost looks more like a rug. Stitches started out small and tight and ended larger and looser!! But it sure is comfy and warm!!
I am soo happy to have it done! It took me a year and half to finish it last monday!

O Christmas Tree!!

So Here is my Beautiful Christmas tree!! I was seriously thinking of not doing a tree, or atleast getting a small one! But when Igor and I went out, he talked me into getting a real tree, we looked at small trees. When we laid eyes on this one it practically reached out and grabbed us both! It is beautiful, Huge and perfect! Probably the biggest tree I have ever gotten!

Jayme and her son Carson came over and helped me decorate the tree! She did a fabulous job with it! I don't think I even want to leave my tree to go to work at all! I may just stay at home loving my tree!!


Ok, so I am soo behind, let me get Caught UP!!

Here is our Thanksgiving Dinner with mom and dad! I think I must have been sleeping! Dinner was wonderful! We deep fried our Turkey!
For those who love to play Wii, so do we!! My dad came to play with us! Check out his Mii and how close we have it to his actual looks!! :)
This is the Smartest 2 year old that I know!!!
His name is Miles, he is my cousin Stacey's first child!
We went to visit Stacey and her parents, Steve and Sonya the day after Stacey's Birthday on November 23rd.
If you get a book full of Flags, country's, or states, Miles can name most of them!! So hard to imagine a 2 year old remembering all the country's! He also has the alphabet memorized in the correct order! Miles is amazing! He has great powerful arms, that I think some day he could use for massage!!
