Christmas 2016

We have added "making a Christmas video" to our list of traditions the past few years!
It's always included setting up the tree, but this time we thought we would add a little shopping in.
Merry Christmas from us to you!

Danish Christmas Party 16

I had never had Danish food before. That is, before December, 3 of 2016. Lucky for me- Krystle and Michael are in the business of being fantastic chefs.
Michael hails from Denmark and he and Krystle prepared a Delicious feast. We dressed in our "fancy clothes", took pictures and ate our hearts out.
We also took many photos in said fancy attire. I am learning how to handle an indoor flash and am failing (gracefully? I wish) but my friends are very patient with my incompetence. #naturallightphotographerprobs #longhashtags 
Look at these gorgeous and hilarious humans. I like them. 

These lovely ladies have made my time in Dallas worthwhile. (missing lynda!!!) They are gorgeous inside and out #sappysappy 
And these men we love so much even though they have a strange sense of humor. Also, they might possibly have more of a yaya sisterhood than the ladies do.... ?? 
 Did a white elephant exchange, played lots of games and ate an amazing dessert (the name escapes me at this moment....) BUT I do know that you have to find the one almond hidden in the dessert and whoever finds it wins! The catch, there are many little almond slivers in the dessert. There was a lot of slow chewing involved. Savoring, if you will. 
These delish Danish potatoes.

Waiting for delish Danish potatoes.
 As per usual, I didn't write a whole ton, but as I mentioned before (and will probably mention a million more times) I am not a good writer and this is really a little online journal for me. I keep it public for people like me, creepers. To look at pictures of other people doing life things to kill time. Thanks for keeping my blog alive friends. 
 I love these wonderful people and I am so glad they think we are cool enough to hangout with them.

 Merry Christmas

Halloween Dog Party 2016

Since moving to Dallas we have made some pretty wonderful friends from our new ward. Heather is a genius and decided to throw a DOG Halloween party. Because we love dogs. Obviously. Also, they came up with some AMAZING costume ideas ( and I will be the first to admit that ours sucked but to be fair we planned our entire costume around Winstons...)

 Lynda + Sean + Teddy & Scotch = A football player, cheerleader and her "pom poms" ;) 
see what she did there? Yes, genius. We thought they couldn't get fluffier. But we were wrong. 
Sierra + Chase + Ollie = A hot dog, a "dog mom" ( Sierra dressed as ollie) and a very cute dog who is enjoying a bone. 
Sierra was working all morning so she said they would have to throw some costumes together and frankly, I was still impressed. 
Heather + Aaron + Vivian & Crosby = Bob and Linda Belcher & 2 little hot dogs.
 If you haven't seen Bob's burgers stop everything you are doing and go watch it now.
Amanda + Joe + Pig = awkward 80's family photo. 
This one seriously killed me. I was laughing at everything Amanda did all night because of that wig. And can we take a minute to look at pig. She is a ROCKSTAR. Still dying.
Krystle + Michael = A robber and a blueberry. 
Krystle tried to give out change at trunk or treat and kids were NOT having it. ( They are still learning the value of money over candy...appparrrenntlyy ???) and sometime ago Krystle posted a snap chat of Michael with the raspberry filter. Many hilarious things ensued and here we are. Also some child proclaimed at Trunk or Treat " a blueberry is not something you can be for Halloween". 
Kids. They say the darnedest things.
Jovanna + Chase + Winston = A family of cowboys. 
See how lame that is? Yes. But look at that little man on Winstons back. Winston is the fatest horse to ever walk the earth. That justifies it for me. 

Please take a moment to enjoy these very awkward photos we took late into the night when we were kind of losing it. 
Also this scary photo of Michael in blue face. And Sean staring off into the distance on the bottom right. AND Krystle running off with a liter of Diet Coke. 
 Greatest awkward family photos.
Chase and Vivian. A beautiful love story.
VIVIANNEEEE. Shes 16 and the funniest dog on earth.
Now we arrive at the random Trunk or Treat photos. 
Winston loves Chillens. ( Children for those of you that missed that.)
That train costume. I can't. SO CUTE.
