For Christmas, Jash (the Josh that belongs to Ash) got the Guitar Hero 3, so we all rocked till our hearts were content...
I had video footage of Nan & Scott, however it ended up being too dark, but they sure knew how to ROCK!
We had a really good Christmas and are blessed to have both of our family's close enough to do not only one Christmas Eve party, but two! We spent the earlier part of the day with my family [the Denning's] and then the latter with Adam's [the Andersen/Felt/Clark Families].
Boo NO Dave, Boo.
Sickest Day of my life (stomach flu), but survived long enough to tromp through lower Manhattan!

Ok, you saw a preview of our trip to New York, a picture of me with the Naked Cowboy (which has caused a lot of harrassment on my end). This would've gone up before those photos if my camera hadn't died while uploading...
One of my favorite things about the East Coast is the subways and that's because you never know what you are going to find down there.
Here's a prime example...
|Your Christmas is Most Like: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation|
And no matter what, something hilarious usually happens.
The Naked Cowboy & I in Times Square... [Santa MUST have gotten my letter this year!] I had to keep reminding Don that he [the cowboy] made me put my hand on his tush... New York is a big, big place... and not that I know other wise, but it is the BEST at Christmas!!
I will post more later...
P.S. No, the 'Big Apple' is not in Canada... this one is though.
Thrillionaires was the entertainment. Now I am pretty skeptical when it comes to people trying to be funny (on purpose), but these guys were good, crying good. If you live near Provo and you are as skeptical as me, try 'em and enjoy!!
You only have 19 days to watch ALL of these...yes ALL of them, because they are sooo good! (plus, any other Christmas Classics)
That's right, on friday some dude will transform our Pink tub into a sparkling White one!! I can't wait, it is one of the last things to be done in our life-long bathroom transformation. In fact, if you can't remember where we started check this out. I will post final pictures soon!

P.S.S. There is also this cute blog called I Love You, I Think... that will give you 30 [way fun] ideas for Christmas this year...
P.S. Special thanks to my sister Tami for always doing my hair the way I liked it, fluffy.
Would needs anything else?
P.S. Here's a picture of Tami & I [We were on a date] at Highschool Musical [The Ice Tour, as Kole says]... Because I had no children or husband to photo, I have no photos...but Tami does!! Go here to see more.
Highlight #3 - The Preston Light Parade... here is Adam, Scott, Nan, Becca, Ash, Josh... We were all bundled up because it was WAAAAAY to cold! Thanks Nan, it was a fun idea to go!
