Christmas Time

I absolutely love decorating for Christmas. It's always hard to wait until after Thanksgiving to break out the Christmas decor. However, I think it's only fair that each holiday get it's time so I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to get everything put up. This year Clint and I decided to purchase a fake tree. We usually get a real one but thought it would be more economically feasible to get a fake one. Plus we bought a pre-lit tree and I love not having to put the lights on. That is always my least favorite part of the decorating process.

So I've been tagged. I am unsure as to what the whole tagging process involves but I believe I write six tidbits about myself and then tag six other people.

1. Since it is Christmas I guess I will let everyone in on an embarassing secret. When I was in high school I played the part of the Grinch in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Bob and Connie have the whole embarrassing thing videotaped so if anyone would like a great Christmas movie to watch-let me know.

2. I really enjoy interior decorating. I often think about going back to school to get my degree in interior design. The broadcast journalism degree, as fun as it was, just didn't pan out as planned. However, Clint does get a good kick out of watching my old Aggie TV news stories. Another great watch for anyone interested.

3. I'm addicted to the KSL Classified ads. I have bought several items of furniture in the last couple of months. Most of it needs some work but a little elbow grease is worth it considering the amount of money I'm saving. (That is what I try and convince Clint of anyway. )

4. I treasure all of the friendships I have had throughout my life and often think of all my friends. I know I'm not the best at keeping in touch with everyone but I love it when I get the chance to get together with friends.

5. I am the most content with life now than I have ever been. I love being a wife, mother and homemaker.

6. My favorite activity of choice is western swing dancing.

I now tag:
1. Sean Dyreng
2. Danielle Dyreng
3. JaNae Dyreng
4. Torie Christofferson
5. Katherine Murdoch
6. Holly Hutchings

Messy Boy

Easton got into my scrapbooking supplies and decided to try and eat my metallic stamp pad.

Our New Home

Clint and I are building a new home in Eagle Mountain. We realized we have outgrown our house here in American Fork and it was time to upgrade. Our new home will be completed within the next month. Now we just need to get our current home sold soon. We have a couple of final projects we are working on and then I will get it listed. ( I got my real estate license about a month ago so I am now a Realtor.)

Easton loves being outside. He loves running around and exploring everything. With the fallen leaves in our yard it has provided something new for his curious nature to explore.
It took me a couple of years but I have finally succumbed to the blog craze. I realized I enjoyed reading every one's blogs so much I should create my own.
