Last weekend Nick's single's ward had their Christmas party. So we got to spend Saturday night up at the BYU owned cabin, and it was amazing! Minus the hour it took to get there through Spooky Hollow roads haha. I decided that's what I want my house to look like some day. Huge stone archways, bridges in the house, double sided fireplace, log walls. It was beautiful. We ended up staying super later because Nick wanted to play vollyball with some of the guys. But it was ok, Tristan and I hung out with one of the girls watching "Cats Don't dance" on the HUGE TV.
Then the other day I decided to be ambitious and make a pizza from scratch. We didn't have too much to work with, but I made due with Mexican blend cheese and mushrooms. It looked pretty at least! Nick told me he liked it, but I can always tell if he really does when he goes back for seconds. One plate was enough. Meh, better luck next time. One thing I did succeed on was mini Turkey quesadillas, Nick asked for those two days in a row.
And last night we had a get together at Justin and Cami's house as a farewell party for Karl and Amber. Yeah, still pretty depressed about that. It was a good party though! Cami made lasagna and breadsticks for dinner, which I guess tasted super yummy. Nick made Amber eat a third breadstick so he didn't feel guilty doing the same. Then he asked Cami for the recipe and told me I should make them. Haha, it was funny. And I made cookies, which is my favorite thing to do. I used to occasion as an excuse to finally buy molasses to make molasses cookies. Not the kind my family makes, but they were more like ginger snaps….or I should say clove snaps…..I'm not a huge fan of a lot of ginger. And I also made chocolate chip cookies with a snickerdoodle recipe. After dinner, we played a game called "Like Wise". Nick and I cracked up when we both put down Bob Harper for one answer, and then Stacy and Clinton for another. I think that showed we watch a little too much reality TV together, hahaha. What's the most beautiful piece of gym equipment you can think of? BOB HARPER! Then we amused ourselves taking pictures of our silly babies. Christine kept trying to knock Tristan over and grab his face, which he didn't like too much so he pulled her hair….all the while Isaac watched intently.
And today was a lazy day. Pretty much Tristan and I played toys all day, while Nick took his final and then went fishing with an old buddy from school. Oh, and I called the airlines today to get permission to bring my blender as carryon baggage. Haha, well, last two times we went to Virginia without it was terrible! I hate starving, so this year, I'm bringing it with me and I am going to dine with everyone else!
Tristan is doing great. Minus the not sleeping through the night anymore…..have no idea what that's about. He is eating solid food at least three times a day, and loving it! His favorite is still sweet potatoes, and he likes to get it everywhere. His neck is doing good too, or at least I think it is. We're still going to go up to Primary's though, just for the consult and second opinion if nothing else. But all in all, he is a sweet and chatty boy. He's really gotten into talking a lot the last little bit. And sometimes, if I'm lucky, he's even cuddly. I had a little fun tonight playing with his hair, haha.
It's funny, a year ago we were all playing games together, laughing about how crazy it was that three friends from Virginia were all out at BYU going to school, and married with pregnant wives. Now we have cute little babies, all born with in 2 months of each other.
