our seafood cook out!

All of us at Nate and Brooke's on Christmas Day.

I love Christmas. My mother in law, brother in law and sister in law all came down for Christmas. It was so much fun. We were able to just relax and hang out most of the time. Christmas Eve we has a sea food cook out. My awesome father in law Glenn sent us down fresh salmon and fresh crab. It was honestly the best crab Ive ever had. Stu did such a great job grilling the salmon. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Anyways then on Christmas morning we went to my parents to open up gifts and went to the the annual Christmas breakfast out in their Cul-de -sac. It was so yummy. They had breakfast burritos, french toast and buttermilk syrup, fruit, and blue berry pancakes. Thanks to all the great dads that helped prepare the breakfast! Then later that day we went over to Nate and Brooke's house to have another meal. It was so fun getting together with all the Lesueur family. They are so much fun and we love just hanging out with them. It was so fun seeing all the little kids and also being able to eat awesome food again. Shawna made some killer orange rolls and Doug made us such a great omelet. We missed being able to see everyone in the Lesueur family there. James and Ash are in Boston and Dave and Nancy in the Philippines. Stu really enjoyed talking with Dave and Nancy on Christmas Eve. While it has been great living in Dave and Nancy's house we are really excited to have them come home! Later on that night we went to my aunt Terri's house. We had a fabulous dinner and got to see them and my grandparents. I love being with family and wish we got to see to see the Galvin family more! After that we went to the movies with my little brother and sister and Stu's little sister to see Enchanted. It was such a funny movie. Over all it was a great Christmas and we loved spending it with family.

Thanksgiving weekend

We has such a great Thanksgiving weekend up in Utah. It was so much fun! It was the first time we had driven there in a long time. Talk about road trip. We had thanksgiving dinner and my mother in laws house. The Prices came down from Idaho and had Thanksgiving with us. It was so great to see them, we missed Lisa and her family though. We got to see Shannon and Jared and their new baby William, who is the sweetest, cutest baby! Stu and his cousin Jared are really good friends and forever they have watched Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Stu bought three seasons on DVD before Jared got home from his mission just so when he got home they could watch them. They ended up buying one when we were up there and the season had the movie The Touch of Satan. Oh my heck we laughed so dang hard! It was great. Basically it is a show that makes fun of old, horrible movies. Anyways we also got to meet my mother in laws new fiance Greg. He is great and perfect for her. He is super nice and we are excited for them to get married. That was all on Wednesday and Thursday was Thanksgiving with a ton of great food and family fun. We cooked in the morning and ate at 2. I helped make the bird nest yams that are so good and really cute! They are grandma Foust's original recipe. Then on Friday we went to Sushi with Heath, Lindy, Jared, Julie, Stu and myself. We LOVE Sushi! My mother in law didn't love it but we told her it was an acquired taste! Then we went to West Jordan to hang out with Fernuski, Janie and baby Sam. It was great to see them again. Fernuski and Stu were companions on their mission. Later that night we rode the tracks into Salt Lake, which was actually fun. We then met up with Pat who was also on the same mission with Stu. Him and his wife Lindsay came. It was a lot of fun to get to see these boys get together and laugh and talk about the mission. Their wives are great and i loved talking with them! We got to see the temple lights, then we went and ate at California Pizza Kitchen. The lights were amazing! We then went back to the house and talked for a bit and watched an old mission video with all three boys in it. It was pretty funny. Later that night we watched a movie and stayed up til three. We had such a fun time with both couples and hope to see them soon. Then on Sat we went to breakfast with Fernuski because Janie had to work, then we were off. We were able to watch the BYU/ Utah game and have a great lunch at Greg's house. We got to meet all of his kids and their spouses. They are awesome and we loved meeting them. Then later that night we got to go with the Rigby side to dinner. It was so much fun and i love when we get together with Stu's mom's family because they are so easy to talk to and so much fun! I'm sad i didn't get a picture with all of them.

Cali Trip!

We got back this morning at about 2:30 am from California. We went because my cousin Chris got married in the San Diego temple. It was so pretty. I love that temple. We were there for a whole 24 hours. We got to see my cousins which was the best part! I love my mom's side of the family. We always have a great time and laugh a lot when we get together. We are all really close which makes getting together a lot of fun and not a burden. The beach was great and so was the weather. Heath, he is my buddy
Alex and me, we have been best friends since high school and she married Ryan.
Chelsea and Me San Diego temple, It is so pretty and amazing inside.

My cousins Chelsea and Shenelle, we all kind of look alike. Stockton is Jerry and Missy's little boy, He is so funny and such a stud. Benny my cousin

Chris and his new wife Brooke. They make such a great couple.

It was such a fun quick trip and we are so happy for Chris and Brooke!

Montana trip

We went to Montana the last week in July 2007, and it was a blast. The first day we flew into Washington and then Glenn came and picked us up and we drove a couple of hours over to the Foust ranch. On the way to the ranch we went and ate lunch in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. It was super pretty. We went to the lake there and just hung out there for a bit.
We spent a day at the ranch then we went to Glacier National Park and spent two days there. It was my first time there and we went hiking and on a boat ride and ate really good food. They call it the American Alps. It was probably the most beautiful place I've ever been to.

We ended up seeing a couple of bears but from our car so I felt very safe. One was about 5 yards away, that was a black bear and the other was a grizzly mom and her baby and they were 50 yards away. We went to Flathead lake and hung out there. We bought fresh cherries and huckleberries. They were so good!

Then we went back to the ranch. which was a ton of fun. Stu has a lot of fun cousins, uncles and aunts. His grandpa is 80 and as Stu would call him the oldest teenager he knows. We have the greatest family! We had a rodeo, there was paint balling, a treasure hunt, canoeing, mud football, horseback riding, quads and float trips down the river. We also had a 20's themed dance in honor of his grandpa's 80th b day. They also had a dinner for him and most of the community came. The rodeo was great! They had sheep riding, bull riding, calf dressing, and had us catch some pheasants. We did the pheasant catch and calf dressing. We were 3rd place in the calf dressing. Our team was Stu, Lance, Jared and Me. They are Stu's cousins and best buds.

Stu's cousins daughter Ashley. She is way fun and has called Stu uncle skittles since she was little. She has named me Starburst.

This is Addie, Ashley's sister. They belong to John and Lisa. She is the happiest baby and Stu and i LOVE her. She is so cute. She is almost a year and she calls her mom Lisa. She is very entertaining.
Jared, Brennen, and me riding J.J, Ci Ci, and Smokey. Smokey has been around longer than Stu. He is old but everyone loves him.

This was after the treasure hunt. Some of the cousins dressed as pirates. They were really good. Stu's grandpa has his hat on backwards. He really is the oldest teenager we know.

This was our team who wrestled the cow to the ground. I put the hot pink underwear on it.

A park in Washington. They had the world's fair here in 1974. There is also a scene from the movie Benny and Joon filmed at this park. I love that movie. The day we went home we spent some time in Washington. It is so green! I wish Arizona was green. We love Montana and can't wait until we can go back next year
