A Sleigh Ride Together With You

Today Brady and Kamden wanted to go sledding in the sparkly new snow, so I drug them around with the 4 wheeler.  We had a lot of fun!

To Buy or Not to Buy? That is the Question.

Wow, to say I've been a slacker is an understatement.  I thought I'd have so much time once I could stay home with Kamden, but I still can't figure out how people have time to update their blogs every other day.

Our big news lately is that we are buying a house.  It is in Orem and should be a good place for us.  I'll be able to have a craft room!  I don't love the floor plan and it was built in the 70's, but it has new carpet, tile, paint, appliances, etc so it feels new.  Brady and I have been back on forth about whether we should buy it, I never knew it would be so scary to buy a house.  We really wanted to build, but it just didn't work out.  Next time we will :)

Kamden is a year and a half and says new words each day.  If you see him, ask him what an elephant says.  So cute!

I have been reading a lot of fun books with my sisters and mom.  I just signed up for an account with goodreads.com and it is fun to be able to keep track of all the books I have read and rate them and Jess and Natalie both have an account too so we can compare books to get ideas of what to buy next.  Someday I want a library like the one in Beauty and the Beast...is that asking too much?  I think not.  I'll have to start with a bookcase in my new house, and work up from there.  I actually really do want one of those secret reading nooks like the ones on Pinterest.  If you are looking for a good book to read, go buy Edenbrooke.  It is set in the regency period and is so cute and funny and everyone that I've had read it has loved it.  Kat, thanks for letting me know about it!

I took family pictures of Jess's family on Sunday, and it was really fun.  I can see why people get into photography.  I even edited them in Photoshop after.  I really love Photoshop, if you don't know how to use it, learn!  It is expensive to buy but not so bad if you get the Photoshop Elements (the watered down version).  Most things are still the same.
