Paint-phase 1

Since we were basically snowed in today we decided to take advantage of our time and painted the master bedroom! We actually were going to start painting the dining-kitchen-living room but once we started painting we realized we didnt like the color for those rooms. We actually weren't sure if we liked the color at all, but decided to go ahead and paint the bedrooms because we couldn't return the paint. It turned out to be a great color for the bedrooms!

We Love Snow!

We had quite the storm! We woke up to 7.5 inches of the beautiful white stuff! THe dogs had a blast in the snow even though it was up to their chests!

Birthday fun

Yesterday I turned the Big 2-2! It was a long day but turned out to be fun!

Colby surprised me with new laundry baskets. They are super nice and just what we needed! They are similar to this one:

Then we went out to eat at Bonzai my favorite Japanese restaurant. The food their is fantastic and so well priced! It is way better than Kabuto (where we went last year for my birthday!) and 1/3 the price because they don't cook it in front of you!

Then we went to the dollar store. I know its silly but this is always our fall back store we go to when we are bored and have nothing elses to do. We had gone in to find the dogs some new toys because Kazzi "killed" all of the ones they did have! We found mini hulk frisbees and a small hippo and rhino! Then we found the greatest treasure!

I was always so amazed with these things when I was little! They are so much fun to play with and watch "grow"! I know, kinda dorky but we had a good time with it! We also went and got ice cream at Coldstone and walked around Garden Ridge and discussed Colby's future man cave/theatre/game room... It was fun!

We finished the night watching the NC State vs Carolina game. I fell asleep during half time but was told that Carolina won!

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes texts, phone calls, and cards! It was a great birthday!

**In case you were wondering, the rhino and hippo didnt make it through the first two hours of their new life. They are missing all four legs, ears, and faces.... may they rest in peace...**

Fuzzy Little Devil

We love Kazzi Bear, but he is far from perfect! He is still having some issues with potty training and has some tummy issues that only seem to happen during the night! We are constantly awaken by a wonderful stench! Who knew something so little could stink so bad! Other than the potty training and"killing" all of his toys so they have nothing to play with he is the sweetest most cuddly dog! Him and Krone are the best of friends and can often be caught cuddling next to eachother! He was actually being still enough so I could capture a couple of pictures last night.

Devil Eyes

Krone is embarrassed about his current hair-do and wouldnt let me take any pictures...

The Finished Master Bath

Colby finished tiling our master bathroom this past week! It looks awesome and like a completely different bathroom! We love it!

All rolled into one gigantic post!

***This post is mainly for my documentation so don't feel obligated to read it, it is long!**

I cant believe how fast 2009 went! It seemed that all the days just flew by and the closer it got to the end of the year, the faster the days went!

We were busy in December! First of all my Grandma Kuhn passed away on December 13th. She was so ready to be at peace and to live with our Heavenly Father again. Colby and I traveled up to Wiminac, Indiana on Friday the 18th. It was close to an 11 hour drive, which is the longest road trip we ahve taken together! We also brought the dogs so that my family could meet Kazzi and so that they werent without us for 2 1/2 weeks! I was surprised how well they did in the car! Kazzi sat in my lap the entire way there and back while Krone was in the kennel in the back seat. We arrived on Friday afternoon just in time for the viewing. We got lost in winimac with all the numbered roads. They literally live in the middle of corn fields and everything looks the same. We eventually found it after stopping and knocking on someones door where they just directed us back to the main road where we met my dad.

The viewing was long, but great. I was given the task of giving the eulogy for the funeral and up to that point had no idea where to even begin. I was able to talk to family members and friends of my Grandmother and ask them for special memories. I will always cherish that time, I got to know so much more about what a wonderful woman she was. After the viewing we went home and went to bed. We were both worn out from the long day.

Saturday was the Funeral. Colby sang "I Believe in Christ" with my sister, gave the opening prayer, and also sang "Families Can Be Together Forever" with all of the grandchildren that were present. I appreciate him being so wonderful, and helpful for family members he had just met or had previously only met once before. I am so blessed to have such a supportive husband! The entire service was wonderful and had such a strong Spirit. It was also a wonderful testimony of the gospel. Most of Grandmas friends and relatives are devout Catholics and were able to learn about why the gospel is so important!

It was a quick but great trip and I was glad we were able to see the family.

After we got home we were off again to Las Vegas to spend Christmas! This time the dogs got left behind!

We arrived Tuesday night and drove to California early wednesday morning to go to Disneyland & California Adventure!! It was Colby's first time at Disneyland and other than the crowds it was the perfect time to go! We even got him a button at city hall saying "First timer"! The decorations were beautiful and we were able to ride all the rides we wanted to atleast once and some more than once! We drove back to Vegas Christmas morning and had a wonderful lunch my Mama prepared for us! Then we opened presents! Colby and I were spoiled and so grateful for everything we recieved!
The rest of the vacation was spent playing the new Life game, laughing, and going to visit friends! I was finally able to meet my best friend Anns beautiful baby Cora! I was also able to be there for my friend Shane's mission farewell! I was glad I could be there for that even though his departure date was pushed back a month!

We completely failed at taking pictures anywhere besides Disneyland and the farewell! I even had my point and shoot with me the entire time, I guess we were just too busy to think about pictures! Shame on me!!

Here is a couple of pics from Disneyland!

It was a wonderful holiday season!
For New Years we invited the Collins and the Coltons over for a little new years eve party! I made homeade pizzas, we had tyson anytizer boneless chicken wings (I highly suggest these) and cupcakes!! We had fun playing games and just chatting! It was a wonderful way to ring in the new year!!
This is one of my new years resolutions by the way!!
So there is my not-so-little catch up post of the holiday!! Now I can move on with my blogging life!
