Brandt Christmas Weekend

We had our Christmas party with Greg's family this weekend. We had a really good time! Everyone went sledding before we got up to Heber, which I hear was very fun. There were a few minor injuries (LuAnn's tailbone :-) )

We all did a gift exchange, even the doggies got in on the action. Here is Taffy showing off her cute new outfit.

Everyone loving their gifts

I dont think Flint wanted his picture taken.

And last but not least, Our Mexican feast! We had tamales, enchaladas, quesadillas, 7 layer dip, and much much more. Greg and I brought the authentic Made in Mexico soda, which I didnt try but it looked like normal soda :-)
We all opened HUGE red present sacks from Mom and Dad with everything from camping gear, to scrapbooking crickets, to movies. At like 11:30 we finally all made it into our seperate rooms and fell asleep. In the morning there was yummy breakfast too!
We had a really fun time getting to hang out and talk with all the siblings! Thank you so much Bob and LuAnn for an awesome Christmas!!! We love you!

And have I mentioned that it will not quit snowing!! Alllll day today, from the moment I woke up till now... 4:30 in the afternoon.

Luckily Ive had the day off so I can just sit in my freezing cold apartment (our heater only works in the bedroom) all day. I did venture out once, went to the store but after a few minutes our apt manager called back to come look at the heater.

Greg gets off at 5 and is taking me to Zupas for dinner! Yum! My new fav place

(thanks for opening my eyes Hendersons!!!)

The first real snow of the season: Here is my snow plowWe woke up to this horrible white fluff all over the neighborhood! So I decided we better make the best of it, and dressed up my lil greg in all his snow clothes and took him out :-)

We started to make a snow man but it wasnt great packing snow, so we made a little snow pup instead.

his profile, can you see the detailed craftmanship?
Sasha HATES the snow. Tonight Ill park her under our one covered space
Since Im not originally from this frozen tundra Utah, I dont always have th proper snow/winter attire. Here is my makeshift thermal under clothes.

Mimi's Cafe

Mmmmmm Mmmmm! I love this restaurant!
We were ere trying to squeeze in all the Ryan time we could before he leaves for San Antonio today!!!! I'm jealous he gets to go live in Texas for 2 years and I don't!I love this place because it always feels so cozy, and the food aint bad either. We got the bread pudding for dessert to share, and G and R both hated it.... more for me I guess :-)

Temple Square Lights

Greg had to work late on the biggest shopping weekend of the year, so I got to go out with some friends to see the lights at temple square. I swear every year I go they put less lights on the the year before. I specifically remember the first year I went with Bryce and Greg and Andrea they had these huge trees all lit up with red lights by the Joseph Smith statue, they were my favorite. But since that year there have been no big red trees! Rude!

Yay for Bryce and Becca being in town so I could hang out with them alll weekend!

Turkey Day

This Thanksgiving we headed up to Bountiful to eat at our bro and sis in laws hizzouse.
I was in charge of a salad and cranberry sauce(which I brought but no one ate) :-(Most of the nieces and nephew were at other family's houses so it was the lone Kailey who braved out the holiday with all the old folk. (I'm included in that) Greg doesn't like this pic because he looks goofy, but I don't care :-P
I am grateful that we have family by us so I didn't have to try and cook the turkey.

T'was the Night Before Thanksgiving

And Greg took Dani to eat sushi for the first time in their entire relationship!
As you can see Greg did not eat the sushi, but he was nice and plugged his nose so his wife could be happy :-)

Abby's Birthday

We got to celebrate Abby's 7th birthday a few weeks ago! She's getting so old! Next year we'll be going to her baptism! She blew out the candles on her chocolate chip birthday pie :-) Then Flint blew out the candels, then Kailey.
I dont think I was sad, but this picture begs to differ.

Natalie and their cute new puppy pal Taffy. She is such a soft and cute dog!

Showing off the cutest outfit her awesome aunt Dani picked out for her!

Farewell Jerome : (

Unfortunately late last night our baby Jerome took his last breath. He has been a light in our house for the past few months and it is sad to see him gone. He brought a lot of smiles and laughter to our family. Now we are left with the sweet memories of his life. We thank all of you for sharing his life with us. He will be missed!

Monday, November 24, 2008


My poor baby Jerome is sick. For the past couple of days he's been really shaky and doesn't have any coordination. He seems really weak too, and can barely lift up his head to walk.

So we've got an appointment with the pet doctor at 11:40 today, I hope he's going to be okay

Fort Worth Zoo

We had perfect zoo weather today, it was not to cool not to hot. It down poured last night so we were worried it would rain again, but we stayed dry.
All the animals were out and active too! In the bird house you can buy a little stick with seeds on it and the birds fly into you to get the food! It was fun, but kind of scary

This giraffe was so funny. It decided to eat the leaves that had already fallen to the ground, so it had to spread its legs out as far as it could and reeeeaaach down :-) I thought it was funny at least

There were also some new addtions to the zoo family, 4 lion cubs, 4 tiger cubs, and a few baby giraffes! They were all so cute! Hard to get a picture of though.
