Christmas time is here!!!!

    The best part about thanksgiving is that Christmas time is just a day away!! We started setting up for Christmas a few days before thanksgiving so everything is pretty much up! A fire in the fireplace.. Christmas music on.. presents soon to be under the tree.. My favorite time of the year!  
Speaking of presents.. I went out for Black friday this year. WOW! It was worse than I could have ever imagined!  I did manage to get a few good deals though.  There were so many people out shopping, even before midnight! Completely crazy.  I heard a little boy got trampled in Walmart and they had to call an ambulance. Leave your children at home people, its dangerous out there! 

Jimmer getting in the Christmas spirit while I wrap presents.
Today I am baking a four layer chocolate cake with peppermint frosting for the festival of Tree's.  I also need to wrap a ton of presents, buy tickets for the Messiah and the Nutcracker, get ready for Christmas photos this week, find the list of addresses for Christmas cards, walk the dog, meet with Visiting teachers and class tonight.  Wish me luck!

Hubby is home!! YAY! We actually flew out to Vegas last week to surprise him before the Vegas House of Blues show, but the show got cancelled! Tesla's lead singer got sick and so the last few dates had to be postponed. Can you believe it? So here I was in Vegas ready to surprise Tony and he was in California.  ha! So We just flew him out as soon as we found out and we got to have some fun before we flew home! And boy oh boy did we have fun... We had a blast driving up and down the strip, going out on the boat, shopping and seeing a show. ( Mystere by Circque du Soliel was awesome!) Big thanks to Uncle Stan for being such a great host!
Also, the first half of the tour went great! It was sooo  exciting to see pictures of some of the venues they got to play and the amount of people in them.  Some places were even sold out with a couple thousand, so cool right? The next half of the tour will be a for sure thing now and starts in February.  They get to play all up and down the East coast! I'm so jealous! Tony wants to fly me over for the New York shows, but we will have to see how broke we are after Christmas lol.  I would sure love to go see New York though...
and BBS of course. ;)
Here are a few pictures!

My cup is half full


Today I have been feeling overly blessed and just so grateful. I truly know how much our Heavenly father loves each one of us and knows us so well.  I feel the love of my savior daily and today especially.  I know my Father in Heaven knows exactly what I need in every aspect in my life.  He knows my marriage, he knows my feelings, he knows my dreams.  I feel so lucky so be so head over heels in love with the most handsome,  smart, funny, talented, spiritual giant that I have ever met.  Sometimes I think that my husband has to love me more than any husband out there loves their wives :)  ( And I just choose to keep believing that ;)  ) I have such wonderful in laws, so kind and generous and loving. So welcoming and selfless and a perfect example to me. I have a wonderful sister, mom and family too that continue to love and support me.  And last but not least we have a crazy, destructive, beast of a pup that we couldn't love more.  I love the gospel, I love my Heavenly Father and I love my husband. Life can be so wonderful,  if you just let it.
