Gingerbread House 2008

Kenlee and Justin worked together to build a gingerbread house. Sometimes he blows me away by the things he does. It was absolutely "not his kind of thing", but he did it anyway. And he did a fabulous job, I have to admit!

Sam and Kenlee

Jon took pictures of our family at our house and Kenlee wanted to sit with the cat for a few. They turned out so cute! Here is a sample........

My Poor Neglected blog!!

I feel so sad for my blog. It has been needing an update for sooooo long. It has been terribly neglected. I have intended to, promise!! Here is what has been going on.......

*I just finished my last class that I need for my Credit Management accreditation. That was terribly stressful and I am so releived to be done for a little while. It was only one 2-hour class once a week and it was all-comsuming for me. I have no idea how people do college and work full time, or have a family to take care of. That's amazing to me!!

* I am in charge of my work's Christmas Party every year. I have to get vendor's to donate gifts to give away at the party, choose and reserve the place, try to please everyone with their different food preferences. Its a lot of work, but I enjoy it.

* One family Christmas party down, The Madsen Christmas party. That wasn't too terribly stressful because I didn't really do anything.

* All the other normal things around this time of the year.........shopping, shipping, sleeping, eating.

Still to come.......Christmas Eve Breakfast for everone at my work that I do every year and Grandma Baker's Christmas Eve Party. Busy, busy.

What has made everything worse is that I have been sick. This week I got the flu. Monday at 2am all the lovely effects of the flu started presenting themselves. I won't go into detail, you know what I am talking about. I feel as though I have fully recovered now, thank GOODNESS!!
By the way, I don't usually get sick, and never the flu. This year I got a flu shot, go figure.

Now I have no more excuses. Back to business!

I would have posted pictures but Justin has downloaded them to our home computer and I rarely get to use that computer. If Justin isn't on it, Kenlee is. Anyway I will make a honest attempt to put up some pictures. Until then...........

Thanksgiving 2008

SO.....I am seriously behind in my blogging!!!! Here are some of the things that have gone on since I last posted.


We had all of Justin's family, that were here in Utah, over for Thanskgiving dinner. It was yummy and turned out really well. I stole this picture, I'm not sure why now that I see how horrible I look in it.....

This is us girls in the kitchen, left to right, Karla, Jenn, Natalie, Aubrey and silly me!

This was so cute! Kenlee and Ashlie put Avery in Kenlee's doll crib. I can't believe he was sleeping through all the commotion.
