Baby Mortenson's Blanket

I made this blanket for Baby Mie Mortenson. Whitney wanted a pink and brown blanket and I thought it would be fun and different to do hot pink and brown. I am so happy with how this one turned out.

Thanksgiving 2010

For Thanksgiving we ate at my grandparents house. It was so yummy! I think I ate my weight in Thanksgiving food. Jared's Nona came to dinner with us, along with my grandma's sister-in-law and her cousin from Danville, IL. We played some games and watched Toy Story 3 in their new theater room. It was such and nice and relaxing day.

Our Thanksgiving Spread!

There are so many things that I am thankful for...

I am so grateful for my wonderful husband, Jared. He is the best husband in the whole world. I am so grateful for everything that he does for our family. I am grateful that he puts up with all of my craziness and my Disneyland obsession. You are my best friend and I love you with all my heart. I am so grateful for these wonderful past 2 1/2 (almost 3) years of marriage, and I look forward to many, many more years.

I am grateful for my amazing family. They are always there when I need them. I love that we live close to both of our families. I love my in-laws. I had heard horror stories about people who dont get a long with their in-laws and I am so grateful for mine. They are so great and have always made me feel like part of the family.

I am grateful for my job. I love that I have a stable job to help provide for my family. I am grateful that I work with both my dad and my little brother. I love all of the people that I work with and I love that I have known most of them since I was a little girl.

I am grateful for my membership in the church. I love that no matter how hard things may seem, I can always turn to my Heavenly Father for help. I am grateful for my church callings. I love my Activity Day Girls and I love teaching in the Relief Society... even though the teaching gives me anxiety sometimes.

I am grateful for my best friend, Andrea. I dont know where I would be without her. She has helped me through some tough times and stuck by my side. She is always someone that I can call when I need to vent. She is my bestest girl friend!

Jared's aunt had a little one last week. I made this blanket about a month ago and I am finally posting the picture.

San Diego Trip

For Halloween weekend, we decided that we needed a little vacation. Over the summer we purchased a membership to the San Diego Zoo. It had been a very long time since I had been to any kind of zoo so I was so excited. After work on Friday we went to a hockey game. One of Jared's bosses has season tickets so we get to go every once in a while.
After the game we drove down to San Diego. Out hotel was probably the oldest hotel that I have ever stayed in. It was nice but at the same time a little creepy. Jared, of course, had to keep pointing that out and freaking me out. We stayed at the Park Manor Suites across the street from the Balboa Park.
Below are some pictures from our Zoo trip.
We took these fun things over the Zoo to the other side instead of hiking over there.
Jared loves the Gorilla's
Jared with the Panda's

I love Koala's. They are so soft and cute!
This guy spent 15 minutes trying to get his bone out from between two rocks, just to play with it for 1 minute and put it back. I am convinced that he was hiding it from his friend that was in the same area as him.
Jared bought me this little guy. I named him Po.
Jared kept playing with this little guy. He liked him.
My hand is so tiny compared to a Gorilla's
Mr. Panda Bear
I love Panda Bears!
