Mesa Temple Christmas Lights

Last night Tom, Braden, Sam and I headed off to the Mesa Temple to see the Christmas lights and watch the Mesa Christian Dance Company Perform. We were surrounded by thousands of lights and beautiful music right in the middle of Temple Square. The Christmas spirit was so strong and really makes you remember the true meaning of this Holiday Season. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!


Deck the Halls

Here is the Christmas decor I have accumulated over the last two years. All the twinkling lights, ornaments, yummy candles, and nativity scenes make Christmas my favorite time of year. I am still working on my collection, its not much, but I am getting there! Merry Christmas!

So I up woke up to my blog looking a little odd. For those of you who are using a picture behind your blog title it may have shrunk. I thought mine was the only one, but when I went on the other blogs, they all had the same problem. I am not very technical, and I have no idea why this happened, but since I make my own blog templates, I figured out how to fix it. If this happened to you just
1. Go up to customize on your navbar
2. Click on the template tab
3. Then click on edit HTML
4. Scroll down in the box about a quarter of the way down. Look for something like this:

#header h1 {
margin:5px 5px 0;
padding:9px 9px 9em;
font: $pagetitlefont;

You then need to change the numbers I highlighted in yellow. I did all nine and it worked for mine, but you may need to make yours a little bigger/smaller, depending on how big you want it. Well I hope this helps:) Have a happy day!!


Eatin' Shoppin' Hangin' with the Fam

Tom and I headed to St. George for Thanksging this year. My moms parents have a home there that they live in during the winter season. It is such a perfect place to meet because it is half way between Rexburg, where my parents live, and Phoenix. Plus the weather is still pretty nice there. We had a such a wonderful time!!! Thanks SO much to my grandparents for letting us stay and being such great hosts!! We love all of you so much and can't wait to see you all for Christmas. Also, a HUGE thank you to Shawna and Jared for watching Roxy!! You guys are the Best!
