First Snowman

Yesterday Ty stayed home from work and we just so happened to get almost a foot of snow the night before. Sugar has never played in the snow before, so we decided to bundle up and go out for some fun. She wasn't too adventurous at first. Her idea of "playing" in the snow was walking down the sidewalk. That's what she did basically the whole time.

She eventually ventured off away from Ty.
She liked putting her foot in the deep snow, but wouldn't touch it.
We decided to make a snowman. I can't remember the last time I did it, but it was fun. Well, I decided to make one, then Ty made it lol.
Ty had to add his own touches. lol Go Utes!

Meeting Santa

So, yesterday was Ty's work party. Santa comes and gives all the kids gifts, which is awesome. I tried talking it up to Sugar for like a week. I told her that she got to sit on Santa's lap and he'd give her a toy. Well, as soon as we walked in and she saw him, she started protesting and crying. I figured we'd just get it over with. We sat her down and the photographer wasn't paying attention so we had to torture her twice! I felt kinda bad, but she was okay after. I even let her keep her Ernie doll, but that made no difference lol. She was super thrilled with her toy though. It's a tea set and she's been playing with in non-stop since we got home.

There was also a clown there making balloon animals. I've never seen such cool stuff. He made sugar a flower, but then she saw someone else had a frog and she wouldn't stop asking so we got her one made. It's pretty awesome. (Ignore my double chin in the picture please)

Rivalry Game

When I got home on Thanksgiving Day I found this:
My lovely sister had decorated my house with the wrong team pictures and colors! I decided to re-decorate a little for the game on Saturday:
We had split everything, the room, the treats, the fans.
The Utah fans:
The BYU fans:
Here's us killing each other, except the love birds on the left
Most of my sister's kids are split on what team they are made to cheer for :-) My niece hasn't found an alliance yet, so she was neutral and wore pink, but wanted to be in a picture. Look how thrilled Jen is in the background when I told her to throw up the U. haha
Ty abandoned the party and went to the game so we had to grab a quick family pic before he left.
My awesomely creative sister made these football field cupcakes. Complete with a football, yard lines, and color appropriate penants.
The game did not disappoint. It always comes down to the wire, which I love and hate. But it was a lot of fun to watch. The atmosphere was a lot of fun to watch the game together, and it was just good healthy competition. Plus, we got the win so that made it better for me. :-)

This year for Thanksgiving we were with my family. We decided to go to the church for a change of venue. I don't know if I'd want to do it again, but it was better than I thought it would be. Of course any time I'm with family, I'm happy so it was a great day for me. The food was great (especially the desserts :-) I hope that you guys had a good holiday!

The whole fam, getting ready to eat
My nephew is taller than me now
Sugar stayed up way too late
Too long of a day for Ty I guess :-)
