Tons of stuff!


I have so much to write I don't even know where to start! Life has been so good the past couple of weeks...well years! We are so blessed! I guess I will start with Thursday....
We went to a Jazz vs. Trail Blazers game in SLC. It was so much fun! As you can tell, we had great seats! 
We were only like 15 rows from the court, and we could see Greg Oden's MASSIVE feet extremely well! I seriously don't even know how he can run with those feet! It was fun to watch some pro ball...however, I still stand strong that I love all college sports more than Pro. I feel like there is more heart in College sports or something!
On Friday we drove up to Sandy to babysit Ian and Meggie for Amanda's Birthday present. We decided to have a little birthday/Christmas party then, too, since we will not see eachother until after Christmas. 

We gave the kids placemats(Ian was seriously freaking out/shaking when he saw Lightening McQueen on his!) and some cute shirts from old Navy, Kevin a Sears gift card, Amanda a bracelet and we babysat for them! Ian and Meggie were such good helpers when we were opening! Not exactly patient, but great helpers!
They got us exactly what we wanted. I got this amazing apron...that my AMAZING sister MADE!!! (Please ignore my face...I had seriously gotten up from a nap like 30 seconds before this pic!)

Can you beleive it?! It is so cute I about died! She made my mom one for her birthday and I begged her to make me one...she definitely pulled through! I love it, LOVE it, LOVE IT! They also gave us a fun sorry game...which is a major Winterholler tradition, The Dark Night movie(If you haven't see/bought this you are missing out), and she even gave us our own dish back...wrapped and all!

Let me explain...a few weeks ago we ate dinner there and left our dish. Then, for an enrichment meeting they were pasting names onto dishes and making them oven safe. So, since Amanda already had our dish, she did it for us! Isn't that great?! Now I can give food to people and actually get my dish back! (Or they will feel really stupid using it, anyway!) I thought it was such a creative idea, I want to buy a "cricket" just so I can do it to all of my dishes!
That is enough for now....we are going home in 1 week! YEAH!

Hey we were at that game too! If you had looked to your left you could have seen us! We were 16 rows up from the referee's table. Fun game! The Jazz Bear seriously attacked Glenn with silly string, about 5 times. I'll blog about it soon.

I agree – adorable apron. I wish I could be crafty. Just the thought of owning a cricket is frightening to me.
I’ve been meaning to tell you something for a long time… remember when you mentioned in your blog that you went to Joanna’s Kitchen on a Saturday? Well WE were THERE on that SAME Saturday! We went in the late afternoon because I had a gift certificate. I think you were there just a couple hours later. Anyway, I meant to comment about that. Totally forgot. Now I’m remembering, and feel you would want to know. Yeah. So I remember you saying you didn’t like it. Neither did we. The pie tasted SO store-bought, when they claim homemade. Just proves the fact that NOTHING tastes as good as homemade, right – Ms. mmmCAFE? :)
