Happy 6th Birthday Gir!

 During this time of year (since we're not exactly when) we like to celebrate our beloved  Gir's birthday. We got him the first summer that we were married (2006) and he has made our life quite the adventure ever since.  He constatnly keeps us on our toes, warns us of imminent (and not so imminent) and imaginary danger, he is quite the snuggle buddy, can be hilarious (you should see him after a bath!), a great hiker (if there are no other dogs present), and is the best sort of friend. If you can't tell, we love our Gir dog very much! Here is a look down memory lane:

Winter Photography

Today, when I woke up, everything was covered in frost and it looked so beautiful! The first three pictures are plants around my house that were touched with frost. The last two pictures are of a marble monument that I've been to recently. I hope that you enjoy!

Temple Square Lights

Last night we went to Temple Square where we looked at the beautiful lights. Alex was such a trooper and she loved looking at all the bright lights. Her eyes lit up when she was looking around and she was talking up a storm. It was so cute!

Happy Kris Kringle Day!

Happy Kris Kringle Day! This year Kris Kringle was very kind to us. Chris got a new steering wheel cover for the Jeep that was made by Jeep and has Jeep printed on it in several locations. Vanessa really hit the jackpot with the latest Eragon book, Inheritance and a pair of earrings. This is Alex's first Kris Kringle day and in her tiny shoes she received a new hair bow with three flowers! Alex has no idea what is going on, but I had a lot of fun showing her, her new gift and helping Kris Kringle pick it out! Maybe next year she'll enjoy it more.
