Merry Christmas!

This was my Christmas present. I saved up all my Christmas money (well, potential Christmas money since I bought it in a sale that ended at Thanksgiving) and bought myself this. A fancy Bosch mixer!My first creation - cinnamon rolls. Whole wheat cinnamon rolls. I cracked the wheat myself with a mill a borrowed from my aunt. And even though they were 100% whole wheat they were still quite yummy if I do say so myself.

Hint and ye shall receive...

So we had a ward Christmas party and they gave single roses to the ladies. I "mentioned" to Diego that I didn't know where the vase was since it had been so long since I've gotten flowers... Lo and behold, on Monday I came home to these beauties!

Old Friends

It's been a month of finding old friends. This, below, is Tara and her family. I knew her when I first moved to Georgia. I also got to meet up with Jen from Louisiana and Leslie from BYU although I didn't get pictures with them. Bad Shannon!

Taser Party

This picture was taken at Diego's work Christmas party. They had it at their building and they did a great job of transforming it. They had a cigar booth, an Indian herb smoke booth, a fun photo booth, Wii Bowling, Rock Band and...
...caricatures. Really, that could be any bald guy but it's still fun.

And Christmas Begins...

We bought this tiniest of manger scenes while we were in Utah for Thanksgiving. Both Diego and I want to invest in a hard-core nativity - you know, the kind you have to buy piece by piece and usually from anohter country. I haven't been able to find anything worth investing in. Please, please if you know of a maker that I can research, we would greatly appreciate it. For now, this will do. We don't have much space anyway. (BTW, I added the "Joy" and the moss and the lights... Christmas presents are care of my mom and dad.)

Utah for Thanksgiving

Diego and I went to Utah for Thanksgiving. We wanted to go last year but Van Halen won out... We stayed with my friend Jenny and had Thanksgiving dinner at her parents house. It just so happens that her dad was my Stake President for a bazillion years and her mom taught my seminary class. This pictures shows 3 of Jenny's for kids - 4 boys and eventually a

We had lunch at The Pie and Christy and Scott Porter met us there with their spouses.

Diego and I did a bunch of touristy stuff - although we've both done them before.
We had dinner with some of Diego's friends at an Argentine restaurant in Clearfield. We were there for 3 hours and didn't even know it. It was good food too, straight from Argentina!
The next night we had dinner with some of my friends. Below is Jenny (who we stayed with) and her husband Robert. **Incidentally, she's the one who bought me Twilight" and got me hooked.**
Neither of us have family there but we both have lots of friends. I spent 6 years in college in Utah and Diego considers it his home away from Argentina. We got Diego's friends in one shot but mine left at different times so from top left we have: Dara - from my freshman year at BYU, Frank - Diego's friend that couldn't meet us the previous day, Christy - a roommate from Atlanta and Daniel - a friend from my stake back in Louisiana. Talk about a time warp. Much fun. Although, we both say we're not going back until we forget how long the drive is!
