Time for an update...

Sorry again for letting the blog get away from me, I am offering the same excuse as I always, do, we have been BUSY. My job is keeping me busy and Ellison is working hard at keeping up on our toes. Since I last posted, here are a few of the highlights:

Visit to the Hogle Zoo
Family Pictures
New Moon

It had been FOREVER since I had been to the zoo, and Kam and I thought we would try to take Ellison before the weather turned too cold. We were lucky to have Chad and Heather join us for part of the day. We had fun exploring the zoo, and seeing all the animals, with the highlight being seeing the baby Elephant, Zuri.
Kam and I decided it was time for an update with the family pictures (it had been almost a year since we last took some). We headed up to Red Butte Gardens and got a few good shots in there.

For Halloween this year, we participated in many fun activities. My mom came for a visit the weekend before Halloween and we were able to go to Witches Night Out at Gardner Village with Janie (my sister in law) and her family. We had a great time hanging out with all the witches! For Halloween this year, we spent the weekend with Kam's brothers family in Ephyraim Utah. We dressed Ellison up like the princess she is, and she played the role well (as always). She dictated all we did that weekend as a ruling princess does. We had a great time eating chili, being chilly and Trunk or Treating with Kory, Tiffini and Hailey.

As many of you know, I am crazy about Twilight. I love everything about it, so when New Moon opened, I was disappointed I couldn't get to a Midnight showing, but I was able to see it the next evening. A couple of my good friends and I went to Famous Daves for dinner and then on to the movie. Needless to say, I LOVED the movie, and have been back to see it two more times since...making it three far...

Thanksgiving this year was different than any other year, mainly because I had to work the day of. Kam's mom was able to fly out to Utah and visit us for the Thanksgiving holiday. I worked half a day and then Kam, Ellison and myself drove down to Ephraim, Utah and spent the Holiday with Kam's mom, Kory, Tiffini and Hailey. We had a good time eating, playing games, and making some Christmas decorations. We even woke up on black friday and braved the crowds at the Wal-Mart in Ephraim...suprisingly, it was REALLY busy!

All in all, we have been busy, but finding time to have some fun too.
