temple square

Tonight for Family Night we went to Temple Square to look at the Christmas lights. I have to admit, it wasn't as spectacular as I remembered it once being. They don't seem to put up as many lights anymore. One thing that is truly beautiful are the luminaries. They all have Christmas-related words (peace, love, hope...) embossed on them in different languages. It is really well-done and very pretty. The kids had fun and Gracie, especially was a good sport. They all looked so cute in their hats and mittens. Adam discovered that if he puts him hands in his pockets then they will stay warm. It was very cute.

Because our camera is broken I don't have any pictures to put on. But I did find this picture online and thought it was a good representation of what we saw. Merry Christmas!

i'm in the movies

They made a movie about me. Well it isn't exactly about me, but the lead character is patterned after me. I went and saw "Enchanted" last week and I am pretty sure someone has been following me around. Now sure, I don't have red hair and I am not really a big fan of rodents, BUT I love making new friends, I sing and dance all day long, I'm sometimes really naive and ditzy, and I am super idealistic about love.

I loved this movie. I don't often want to rush out and see a movie twice or even own one, but this was a true exception. I wish there were more shows out there that promoted happiness, kindness, and love. It was good and clean and I identified so well with Giselle. Sometimes I feel like I have fallen into a strange, unfriendly world (and the only thing that will make it better is a fabulous dress, a clean house, and a song).

back up and running

Hello cyber-sapce; I am back after my long and trying break. The internet guy came today and got me all hooked up.

So, amazingly enough I don't really have anything to say. I seem to be drawing a blank right now. I have to think of something and blog later.

the hills are STILL alive

Hello my fellow bloggers...I haven't forgotten about you. I know I haven't posted anything in almost a month and I have a really good reason for it. We have dial-up...need I say more.

It takes forever to post anything. We are getting high-speed this week because neither Scott nor I can handle the slowness any longer. So give me a week and the fun will begin again. Until then...CHEERS!

PS my camera also broke a couple weeks ago, so I don't have any pictures to post anyway.
