More Layouts and a Christmas Tag

Since Tom ditched us and went to Portland, I have had some time on my hands to finish off the Christmas pictures I had. He was suppose to be home tonight, but there is horrible weather in the northwest and his flight was cancelled:( I am so sad, but I am just hoping he gets a flight before Christmas Eve...Thank goodness for his Aunt Debbie and his cousins, or I would be going crazy. They are so nice to include me in their family:)

So here are some layouts-
These are all the snowmen I have accumulated over the last couple years. They are my favorite!And now here is a cute Christmas Tag I found on my cousins blog...

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. We got the best pre-lit tree last year and I LOVE IT!

3. When do you put up the tree? The day after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down the tree? After New Year's.

Christmas Pj's & Lights

Yeah, finally a new post!! We have been up to our ears in CHRISTMAS! Tom has been hanging Christmas lights for people around Phoenix while Braden and I stay home listening to Christmas music, decorating the house, and trying(unsuccessfully) to make fudge. Plus all the Christmas parties and shopping where I found these cute pj's from Children's Place... Last night we went to the Mesa Temple lights. It was so cold, 48 degrees:) Haha.


The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I really should have just stayed in bed yesterday. Braden woke up at 3 am puking. In the morning he ate his breakfast just fine and he seemed to be doing better so I thought it was just something he ate. I decided to take him to the gym...Bad idea. The minute I walked in he puked all over me. We came home and he crashed. Again, when he woke up he was just fine. I decided to keep my doctors apt and dropped Braden off at Tom's cousin Brooke's house. When I got back we hung out and had dinner until about 8 pm because our husbands were in Tempe hanging Christmas lights. I was in a rush to get home and when I strapped Braden into his car seat I threw the keys in the front seat. Somehow it hit the lock button and I didn't realize it until it was too late. Braden was locked in the car!! This is my worst nightmare, I totally panicked! I ran back into Brooke's house to see if I could drive her car to my house to get the spare key, but then I realized my house was locked and the garage door opener and house key were in the car!! I had no choice but to call 911. They first sent over a policeman, but he had no tools to do anything. In the meantime I called our insurance company to send roadside assistance. The closest person they had was over 30 min away. Then the firemen showed up and did what they could, but BMW's are locked up tight! After about 35 minutes Braden threw up, so they sent for an ambulance. I told them he was sick, but he wanted to think there was something more wrong. I felt so helpless and sad for him. This was all my stupid fault! They were just about to break the window when the locksmith finally showed up. It took him about 10 minutes, but he got it! I was so relieved. Braden was pretty upset, but he was mostly just exhausted. They checked him out and said he was good to go, they even gave him his own fireman's hat. He fell asleep in my arms five minutes later. It all sucked pretty bad, but it could have been so much worse. I am so glad it wasn't summer and that they didn't have to break a window. I just gotta thank Brooke for staying with me and keeping me calm. And for taking the pictures even though they were laughing at her:) So yeah- that was my day... I definitely learned my lesson and won't be letting that happen again!


Give Thanks

Sorry for the late blog post....I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did!! We headed to St. George last Monday and got home last night. My grandparents have a house there and it is a great meeting point for all my family from Rexburg. We were so busy eating, shopping, going to the movies, eating, going to the Temple, eating, going on walks, did I mention eating... I feel like that's all I did. There was also a LOT of shopping, I love all the outlets and who doesn't love Tai Pan?? It was so much fun and I am so thankful for the chance to spend time with my family. I don't know why, but I am having a really hard time remembering to take pictures. I only got one of Braden eating Thanksgiving dinner. It is so cute though, I made two pages...
