I Did It!!!

Well, I finally did it. For Christmas I decided that I would make my little sister, Chloe, a quilt. It was my first quilt that I have made by myself. It took a lot of hard work, but last night I finally finished it! Here is a picture of the quilt...

Its been forever since I last blogged, but things have been crazy with the holidays coming up. (I posted some pictures at the bottom.)

For my birthday (Nov. 26) Jared took me to the Cheesecake Factory at the Irvine Spectrum for dinner. Then we went to this new cup cake store, where we were able to frost and decorate our own cup cakes. Since I love cup cakes, that was the perfect dessert! After we decorated the our cup cake, we went to see the 007 movie, Quantum of Solace.

Thanksgiving weekend was great because we were able to sleep in and spend time with our families. We had Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents house. My family loves to play games, so this year we played Apples to Apples and Dominos. Since we didn't see Jared's family on Thanksgiving, we met them at Disneyland the next day for a couple hours and went to the Spaghetti Factory for dinner.

After Thanksgiving all I wanted to do was decorate for Christmas. Jared and I went out and got our first Christmas tree and decorated it with some ornaments that my grandma had given us. I love the feel of our apartment when I come home and see the Christmas spirit there. Last week my little sister Chloe had her annual Gingerbread House Decorating party. Of course Jared and I were there to help my mom out. Its always fun to watch the kids decorate their little houses with so much candy. There are some that come with designs in mind for their houses.

Well, that pretty much sums up what we have been up to for the past couple weeks. Hopefully I will stay on top of keeping this updated. Now we are both trying to hurry and get our holiday shopping done before Christmas next week. Also, Jared and I are looking forward to our trip to Egypt after Christmas.
