Holiday Cheer!

I’ve been busy with the holidays and homework and haven’t had time to post anything new. These pictures will range from last night all the way to Halloween.

David and I were heading to Laguna Beach to walk by the water, and got sidetracked with a new art festival we hadn’t seen yet. If you’ve been to the Sawdust festival in summer time, we discovered that they have a
winter version. We loved the sawdust on the floors, Santa, snow for kids, trees decorated mostly by kids, and lots of art ranging from very good to very amateur, but still fun! It was one of our best unexpected dates of the year, and only 5.75 per person plus hot chocolates!

Festival Pictures!

Oh, I can't forget my early Christmas jacket from David!
Super cute and makes me feel extra prepared for the holidays!

Halloween pictures are next! We didn’t have any good Thanksgiving pictures due to the disposable camera. Still, we had a wonderful time spent with family at my grandma’s house.

Jackie my little sister and I with the pumpkins we carved!
Hers is much better than mine, thanks David for helping!

Johnathan my big brother with his very funny pumkin!
Those teeth and little eyes had everyone cracking up!
Finally, pictures from Kelly’s wedding shower. It was at Shelley's beautiful house. She is a very talanted hostess and cook! This was really the best shower ever! As you can see, we made very fun wedding dresses out of tissue!
Kristi, Kacey, and Kellie (Such beautiful brides)!

Kristi in her very cute tissue dress and me!

My Little Mushy Blog

For the mushy at heart, I’m dedicating this blog to David my very loving husband. Since this is for him, by all means feel free to skip it and scroll ahead if this embarrasses you. After all this will be my little brag session about David.

A Few Reasons Why I’m in Love with David
  • He’s an original article. Just like Johnny Cash had his own thing going on, the same could be said about David. This guy isn’t changing anytime soon.
  • His thoughtful cards. David could be a writer if he chose. If you’ve ever gotten a card from him, than you know what I mean. It is a mixture of eloquence and humor so uniquely his own. I’m getting a little collection of these and I love it!
  • He lets me be myself, and thinks my strange jokes are hilarious. I don’t even think my jokes are that great.
  • His surprises – I never know when I’m going to be asked to open a Christmas Present or Birthday Present a few months early.
  • His natural artistic ability. He was drawing three dimensionally way too young. If he’d been around during the Middle Ages, the art scene would have revolutionized sooner.
  • The way that he talks about me in front of others. It’s sometimes embarrassing, but I’ve grown to like it.
  • His want for good things for our family both spiritually and temporally.

  • His willingness to shop for me. I really dislike clothes shopping and so about 90% of my clothes were picked out by David. What a guy!

  • He puts up with my own bouts of creativity, when I transform the entire house into my art studio for months. I guess that's not really a bout then.

  • Finally, the way he looks at me like I’m the most precious thing in the world to him, and then tells me so.

After having a conversation with someone about mushy blogs and how much we dislike them and would need to be challenged to write them, I’ve decided to send out the challenge. If you read this, feel free to write your own “Little Mushy Blog.”
