I've been

perusing images of craft rooms online again... it's an activity I never seem to grow tired of :) Here's a recent favorite. I really think my creativity could blossom in a well organized space like this!

Teach your parents tech

There are some really cool, easy to understand videos that will help answer a bunch of tech questions you get from your parents (or less technically savvy relatives -- I know there are some pretty sharp parents out there) :)

Google Chrome

For anyone who is not yet using Google's Chrome Browser, you should really try it. I used Firefox for a long time and finally had to switch. It's really fast and web pages just look better. Go to this link to find out why having a good browser will make you happier :)

Doesn't this look good??!

It's cranberry salsa on top of cream cheese. I saw it on yourhomebasedmom and I was intrigued.


It's nice to think of making something other than a dessert this time of year! I think I'm going to have to make this to take to our next holiday gathering! Click here for the recipe.

Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving at my parent's house this year and had a very busy, fun-filled holiday! They had a couple of inches of snow on the ground, not enough for sledding really but we gave it a try anyway. We also had a lot of fun hanging out with my sister Audrey and her Fiance Gustavo. Marci and I gave her a bridal shower the Saturday following Thanksgiving and I think everything turned out pretty nice. There were a few stressful moments leading up to the shower, but we managed to pull it off :) We mostly ate good food, watched movies,and enjoyed each other's company, it was great! Here are a mix of pictures from the 4 days.

Snow day

I don't like snow days at all, but it does give me the chance to be the photographer for the sledders in front of our house :)

An "Incredible" Halloween

Halloween was not limited to one day this year. We had quite a few events going on throughout the week leading up to the actual day, which ironically we did nothing very halloween-ish on because of it landing on a Sunday this year (other than hand out candy, which Ethan thoroughly enjoyed!) So here's a few snapshots from our week, including the Google party, ward carnival, a trip to the pumpkin patch, and a little gathering of friends and neighbors.
