Happy Thanksgiving

I love the holidays. I have so much to be thankful for. I have been fortunate to spend this time with family. We went to Oregon for this last weekend and had a little get together. We picked up Tessa and Macade, drove back down to Dave's parents home and have been enjoying each other. Dave and Macade have been quite the pair. Macade love's playing with Uncle Dave. Here is a video of them playing with the slot cars or "fast cars". He has learned to trick his Uncle and gets so excited. Sorry it is a little dark. But still cute.

Christmas Present

Last year for Christmas Dave gave me some coupons. Some of the coupon were: a back rub, do the dishes, give me attention, take me out to dinner, and cook a meal for us. Last night I finally used the cook a meal for the two of us. Here is Dave finishing up.

Here is the table set. He is so romantic, he even got out some candles and "wine" glasses.It is all about the presentation. Pretty great looking meal.

The meal was delicious. I don't know what he did to the potato, but it was one of the most moist baked potatoes I have ever had. Thanks Dave for the wonderful Christmas present.

PS 30 more days (give or take) until we have our baby come into the world. And I am kinda freakin out that today is that last day EVER that I will be 25. I liked being 25 it was a good age.

Handmade

On Friday our ward had a craft night. I made some jewelry and a Christmas decoration (that is not finished because the lettering had not been ordered; we are waiting on that). I loved making my own jewelry. I want to get into the whole jewelry making, it is some much cheaper and so fun. Look how cute this toggle latch is. I made a necklace and a pair of earrings for only $12 dollars. And I got to know some of the ladies in the ward. I will post pictures of the other things that I made when they are finish.

Random Thoughts

*Forty more days and the count down begins. I am ready to start feeling comfortable again. I can't believe that the pregnancy has gone by this fast. Forty days and we will be Mom and Dad. I see babies at church and various places and can't wait to hold our baby.
*This past weekend it has been raining a lot. Not as much as Spokane but more than Idaho and Arizona. At least it is not snow. On that note, I get fooled. It looks like the temperature outside should be in the high 30's, but I go out there in a sweater expecting to be freezing. I am wrong. It is in the 80's (well feels like it). I end up doing all my errands dying of heat exhaustion. No worries, I will acclimate.
*We also had Stake Conference. I absolutely love the adult session. In my opinion, it is better that the Sunday session. A lady gave a talk (at the adult session) on finding joy in the moment. Be glad that you have opportunities of everyday life. She relayed a story of a young mother who was diagnosed with leukemia. For the 2 years remaining of her life she was in and out of the hospital. While there, fighting for her life, she just wished that she could be home with her little girl. Be grateful for the little things of life.
*I am a bit annoyed with all of the commercial on the up coming election. I can't wait for tomorrow to be over and the topic of conversation will not be the 2008 election. Vote yes, vote no. John McCain, Barack Obama. Will it ever end.
*I love the month of November. It has always been good to me. I turn 26 this month and I guess it not that bad. I have a wonderful husband and a baby on the way. This is the month of Thanksgiving. Not only does this holiday have the best food, but it reminds everyone to be thankful for what they have. I love turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole (if it is made right, cause I have tried one that just did not qualify). I am not a big pie person but some of them are ok. If they are fresh. And work is taken off to spend time with family. I love my family.

*This is one of my favorite pictures. You can just feel the power radiating from Abinidi. I love this story of Abinidi as well (found in Mosiah 11-17). The power of the Spirit felt when reading his teachings to King Noah.
