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!!

Happy Birthday Donna!

I love Donna! She is a friend you want to keep forever! She has such a big heart, she will do anything for her friends, she will always be there for a friend! Donna is soo much fun, she has a huge sense of humor to make anyone laugh for hours, I could be happy for life if she could always be by my side!
We surprised Donna with a bunch of her old friends, and instead of regular birthday gifts, we get her baby gifts for her baby that is due in February! It looks like it will be a boy, but that is not a 100% for sure, til the baby is born!

Friends From the Past

Here we are in 1995 just before I left for Uzbekistan, Nichole at the top, LaRaine on the left, Karina on the right, Donna front left, then Jim, Jara and Valori.All of us except Nichole at Donna's Surprise Birthday party, 13 years later! Has it really been that long? I think all of us agree we still feel the same age! Although the 11 kids at the party may be proof that we aren't still teenagers!

Crimsons Trail

We decided to go for a small hike! It took 2 hrs up, 30 min enjoying the scenery and 1 hr back down! Igor promised me that if we went up the side from Guinivah that it wasn't as steep!! But after the we got to the top we were told it is steeper. We made it to the top and had a snack then came back down the side we went up! I guess now I will have to try the other side to compare! But not without Igor! It seems I can make any hike with him! He always gives me a hand when I can't keep going! A Push from the back, a quick leg and knee massage or just to lean on!

The moss makes a great bed, soo soft!!!

I made it!!!!

I made it down, SOOO TIRED, Thank goodness for these strong trees!!

We got down about the same time the Sun did!!!

I love my Nail Tech, Cyndee!!!

Cyndee takes care of my nails every 2 weeks, they are trimmed perfect so I don't scratch people while giving massages and they always have something cute drawn on them! You give her ideas of what you want on your nails and she does it better than you imagined! I highly recommend her!

Crocheting is fun!!

I just finished this baby afghan, a waffle pattern, the pictures do not do it justice! You have to cuddle up in it to really love it!! I have made it for a friend! Now I have to finish the first afghan I started a year an half ago!

Fall is Here!

We went up the canyon on Sunday with my dad, he drove us up the right side of Camp Lomia all the way through to Blacksmith Fork and to Hyrum. He would drive us a ways then let us walk some, we had a lot of fun! The colors were beautiful, not even the pictures do it justice, Oh and the smell of Fall!

Happy Birthday to Mom!!

Even though we celebrated Shanae's and moms birthdays on Shanaes birthday, Igor and I went over on mom's birthday on the 19th, and gave her some roses and a cute outfit, had some steaks, cream peas and potatoes and leftovers from the night before! Then of course we had to play some Pinnocle!! We had lots of fun with mom and dad! Doesn't she look so cute!!

Instead of body piercing use magnets!

Everyone had fun playing with the magnets, they seem to work well for body piercing substitutes!
