alexa + sean

This was my last wedding with Dezember Photography :(
It was a good one though. I cannot begin to explain how sweet Alexa was, she gave me a dozen hugs during the night and thanked me over and over. She was just a doll, and her day was perfect! I am so happy i got to be a part of it!

i'm a hardcore reader

So for Christmas my mom bought me this book...
And a couple nights ago i stayed up until 5 AM reading it.
I was hooked and just could not stop reading it. Its funny because the Author lives right here in Sandy, Utah! Anywho i recommend this book to you all if you like cute, funny little love stories like i do.

geez louise what'd ya do trip 'er?

overdue post.
Every year we say, hey lets make gingerbread houses!
And we never have.
This year we finally did, and had a blast!

Probably the number one reason why i love my family so much:
Only winnies would wear ugly sweaters while decorating gingerbread houses.

Step one: make and bake!Step two: build!Step three: DECORATE!

The finishing looks: except we didn't really finish...
