Games and stuff.

Oh my gosh! That's pretty much all I can say right now. We went to our friends (they live below us) Matt and JaNae's house tonight to play games. Steve and Becky, Jeris and Suzanna, Jen and Chris, and JaNae's friend Evianne (sp?) we're all there. We first played "christmas catch phrase".... that didn't work as well. And then we played some cranium type game like pop 5 or something. Ps, Shad HATES cranium with a passion and will only play games with other people as long as it's not cranium! So they pull out this game and I just knew shad was not excited. Anyway, it was boys against girls and it was just the funniest night of games ever... in my whole life probably! Becky video taped a lot of it so i'm going to post that later. But i just had to say how much fun I had before I went to bed. We were there for 3 hours! oh my gosh!

If you want to see some of the hilarious video footage (sp?) then click on steve and becki's link and on their page you'll have to click on the game night link under their friends.

It's begining to look a lot like christmas...in utah that is.

Today carly had the sudden urge to shovel the snow off of our walk way. So I thought I would take pictures of this miraculous event because carly HATES the snow. I think she's starting to warm up to the idea of snow. The best part was hearing her grunt everytime she picked up a shovel full of snow. Enjoy the photos because this is a rare once in a lifetime experience!


So for Thanksgiving this year Shad and I (and Jayson Johnson) drove down to St. George to spend the holiday with my grandma. We stayed in her lovely assisted living appartment and ate out a lot. G'ma loves to eat out. We had Thanksgiving lunch / dinner at Cracker Barrel and it was quite good. Especially the pie! Shad met up with his friends (we dropped Jayson off at his friend Derek's and he'd meet up with them) to ride and take pictures. We also went to Snow Canyon one day so shad could take pictures for a project at school. I thought we could post them on our blog but Shad says no. We even got to see my cousins Annie, her husband Aaron and their baby Jaden, my cousin Travis and his wife Liz (we've never met her before) and my aunt Karen and uncle Jerry. Oh the fun in St. George. On the way home we got to torture Jayson in the car by making him listen to Michael Jackson. I started my book which I wasn't supposed to start until after finals and...that's it!

This is a picture of our newest nephew Landon Xavier Owens. He was born on October 23rd and weighed in at 5lb 9oz. We were lucky enough to have little Landon, my sister Hallie, and her husband Mike stay with us for a while when Landon was born. I made Shad take cute pictures of Landon. It was a pretty fun experience. We didn't have a black backdrop to use so we got out my black long coat and put him on the floor. But Landon was not very happy there! After a few minutes of trying to take his pictures while he was crying, I picked him up to love him so he'd calm down. As I was loving him I realized that he was happy on my chest. So I layed down on the ground with him on me and we put the coat in between us. Then I held up part of the coat so the coat blocks out our lovely wall. ha ha. Anyway, it was fun, tiring, and Shad did a really good job!


OK, so I never thought that I'd want to have a blog or even attempt to make one but I am. So basically I just thought it might be easier to keep everyone up dated in our lives instead of e-mailing. (Since we do so many exciting things!! right) But, we'll give it a try. And I'm not very computer savvy so we'll see how creative I get.
