Major catch-up: my poor little wrist was burned by boiling caramel!!!

So some of my best wonderful UV ladies (all but one of whom have deserted me for bigger and better towns since this...*tear*...) had a wonderful goody-making party in December. It was SO much fun, and the treats we made were absolutely amazing. Writing about this makes me so hungry! Anyway, I love these girls and we had an awesome five hours of fun--I mean, just look at us! So happy, so unwounded... :)

Until... (pics and text from my friend Chrystina's blog!)
"This is what happens when a certain someone named Heather, balances a cookie sheet on to a cup and then pours boiling hot sugar into it... which sparks a call for help, just to have poor Kathryn come to the rescue in time to be burned.... followed by Nancy yelling out "get the mustard"... a remedy her Grandmother uses for burns.
Status update: Use mustard when you get a burn, Kathryn says it healed quickly and didn't blister. Heather did feel terrible about it.. as you can see in this genuinely remorseful picture."

Trying to function whilst having mustard on my wrist... :)

The sad little caramel-burn scar. :( But what a fun story!

Major catch-up: family pictures from November!

We got family pictures taken right when Beck and I got back from Texas, in early November. :) We just had our friend Matt Riley take some with our camera and I did some simple editing on them. So here's some--ok, a ton--of those! Oh, and also, here's a pic of Beck in his first Halloween costume! Doesn't he make a cute doctor? :)

Major catch-up: Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving (That's right, it was eight months ago...)
Thanksgiving was great! We stayed here in Rexburg and celebrated it with Cody (Adam's brother). Adam made an amazing turkey and I made homemade rolls for the first time (yum!), green-bean casserole and yummy candied yams, among other things. Beck didn't think much of the smorgasbord, but us adults enjoyed it! We all went Black Friday shopping the next day at 5 a.m., including Beck who really didn't know what to think of all the craziness. :) It was way fun and we came home with some movies, pajamas, amazing sherpa sweatshirts, an external hard drive (let's not bring that sore spot up... the only reason I have these T-Day pictures are because they were still on our camera), and some other things I can't think of at the moment.
We also were getting really excited for Christmas and bought our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving eve. :) Overall a great holiday!

Funny Beck video from six months back!

I was going through some old videos and came upon this funny little one from when Beck was almost 11 months old and just had to post it. :) Kids grow up so quickly, yet gradually, that you don't really realize just how much they've changed until you look back at pictures and videos like this! He was so cute and chubby and shaggy at this stage! *sigh* Time flies!

"What's your name?" Beck can say his! :)

Beck says his name now when asked, and it is so cute! Here's a little video. :)
