Popcorn or snowflakes?!

Last night while preparing for primary I came across about 4 new versions of "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree" This one I found to be perfect for this time of year! The best part was I not only stumped the kids but also the teachers...thus meaning I performed my first official solo in primary in order for them to learn the new song! I found it so great I wanted to share it with you to share with the little munchkins in your life :)


*If you didn't catch on, sing it to the tune of Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!!

Outlets Shmoutlets

Due to the outside outlets not working in our favor
we were unable to hang out lights today.
We will have to post pictures of them later...if the outlets decide they
want to celebrate Christmas, until then, they are on the naughty list.

Lighten Up

Saturday is the day, the day the lights go up!
I can hardly wait!

I know, I know, gag me with a spoon but I can't help
but be excited for all the FIRSTS I get to share
with Mike as my husband this year!

Santa visits newlyweds ...right?

I did it!

After nearly 2 months of sitting in with primary, observing the chorister, I had my first run at it!
Last week I was sustained but I was home sick in bed, so today I did it, I survived my first week as the primary chorister!! Thanks to my mother in law who made an adorable apron with many pockets for the kids to choose from. I think the kinds enjoyed it! They were eager to be called on :)
1 week down....countless weeks to follow!
What a ride this is going to be!

Fresh Scents and Elbow Grease

Now that I'm finally starting to feel a bit better from the yucky cold
it's time to clean house. Mikey has been taking good care of me
and today he had to work, so I shall put on my gloves, roll up my sleeves
and use a little elbow grease!
While I have the energy I need to show my house a little TLC!

Bring on the fresh scents of laundry, mopped floors and clean toilets!

So done

I am so over it....so done with being sick with this stupid cold.
My nose wants its life back, just breathing in fresh fall air, that's all it wants...
is that too much to ask for?

I had a birthday shout HOORAY!

A week ago today I woke up a different age, a husband by my side and gifts scattered on the bed!
Mike likes to spoil but knew that this year we now have a budget, but he still a few tricks up his sleeves! I now have new scriptures with my new name on them, neat ear muffs for my ears when we go walking at night! A few other fun gifts and of course the addiction...NINTENDO!! Check out www.half.com this season for great AFFORDABLE finds...you won't regret it!! Anyway...Mikey also took me to breakfast, had a cake for me with balloons and a card in the afternoon! I even got a gift about a week in advance...a fancy new G1 phone...love it!! It was a nice relaxing day....just what I wanted! Thanks again Mikey for another wonderful memorable day, I love you!

There's good reason...

Align CenterSooo it's possible that I've actually had the time to blog, buuut...
My hubby got me something for my birthday that seems to have
become a slight addiction in our home, I had to ground myself
from it the other night....I'm starting to have withdrawals
so I think today I'm un-grounded!

Yes that's right...we are addicted the old school

NINTENDO!!! Do do do dodo do...do!

A picture show!

After some time off of work and catching a cold,
I'm finally relaxing long enough to update!

Playing dress up

Ok for you little perverted FAMILY members of ours who
thought the last post "headline" was a bit..."questionable"...try this on for size!

Sometimes...Mike and I like to play dress up and get into character!

Ok really this was taken at our Halloween Trunk or Treat/ward party!
We wanted to try for Pebbles and Bam Bam but instead we got this!

A quickie

I have a lot of catching up to do with the blog, which I will get around to, I promise! But for now here are a couple of things Mike and I did in October!

A few Sunday's back we went for a drive up to Brighton, and took a stroll around Silver Lake with Jeff and Venita. It was a perfect way to work up an appetite for family dinner!
This past monday Jeff and Venita joined us for FHE, carving pumpkins! We had a great time, thanks JV!

We didn't just spend the whole month with Jeff and Venita though! We went to a REAL Soccer game with Tara and Adam (Tara is a work friend of Mike's who we are starting to hang out with more! She met her sweetie the day after we got married!) Tara and Adam also joined us, ALONG with Jeff Venita, Marianna and Trevor for a fun Halloween dinner (props to Mikey for an awesome spread on the table...seriously, just wait for the pictures!)

I had a girls night with my my mom and a few cousins and enjoyed an evening of Chili's and Witches Night Out at Garnder Village (we left before the grand prize drawing...too bad, my mom's name was apparently the first they called out!! ha-ha)

Mikey's Saturn got broken into, he fixed it for under $45 himself and we are now selling it! Any takers?!?! Don't worry he already has a new ride, his 1999 Subaru Outback. Totally fits him! He's loving it, which makes me happy and all is well!

I will get more pictures up, but enoy these for now!
