Tim and I cannot wait for this Christmas! As you can see, We went ALL OUT! (Santa came early) Yeah! (Can you believe Tim made that bow! Amazing! I love my handy man:) After spending all of 2008 getting out of debt and maintaining a debt free lifestyle, we thought it was AWESOME when we had money put away in savings, and some extra well deserved x-mas money! It has been such a blast finding each other our gifts! For the past 2 weeks we have asked each other every night "should we open just one?" I swear we are worst than kids sometimes! We love Christmas and we are looking forward to having our first x-mas in our new home! Decorating for Christmas has been splendid and we cannot wait to tackle some more upcoming "Gia by design" projects! Can't wait to open those dang presents!!!!
We woke up this morning to a Winter Wonder Land! It was crazy! Yes, we have had some snow fall the past few days, but nothing compared to this! This afternoon most of the roads in Spanish Fork were closed and our power went out! There were cars all over the sides of the roads! Come to find as I was driving to work in Springville, literally 5 miles down the road, it was a heck of a lot better than by our house! (We live by Spanish Fork Canyon) I couldn't believe the Overnight Snow Fall! We took some pic's tonight of Oakley out in the snow! We went to take him out to go potty and he just SUNK!! It was sooo funny. He was hopping around like a little bunny! The most funny is when he came inside, he has snow stuck to his belly and arm pits! Hilarious! Enjoy our Pics!
This year at the Halona Christmas Party, Gia's brother Mike was in charge and had came up with a "ugly Christmas Sweater contest"! It was AWESOME! Gia's brother Shane won wearing a XXXL Womens Sequin Vest! We all wore some nasty sweaters, Tim's was too small and Gia looked like the perfect "Relief Society President"! Not to mention Gia looked Eighty! LOL. Everyone including Hurley and Oakley wore a sweater! We loved it! We had tonz of fun eating Mutton Stew, Fry Bread and lots of Treats! We played some games and just enjoyed each others company. Merry Christmas Halona's!!

This past Saturday Tim and I went out on a HOT date! Yay! I love it when Tim takes me out! He took me to the Festival Of Trees at the Expo Center in SLC! I am obsessed with ALL decor and it is one of my passions to decorate so this was a BIG treat for me! It was so beautiful! I found a lot of great ideas and Tim also found an awesome tree that he wished he could have! I also saw the Tohatchi Branch! LOL! I grew up in Tohatchi and attended a very small chapel and some one had made a gingerbread house that looked just like it! You would only understand if you saw it! Lol! It was so much fun and I cannot wait to buy more Christmas Decorations! After the Festival Tim took me out to Ruby River, which just happens to be one of my favorite Steak Houses! I am not much of a meat eater until you mention a prime rib from Ruby! Yum! It was so DELISH! We had so much fun being together, like always, but it was a lot more fun being out and about! I love you Unnie BunnY!! Muah!

Well last Weds. we went Snowboarding! It was Gia's first time ever! (Isn't she so cute?) We were impressed on how fast she learned, she couldn't plow, but she definitely rocked at toe siding! She took off really fast until she got scared and would fall over laughing and screaming...it was funny, although she made up for it the whole 5 days after! She got pretty beat up considering she went against Dr's wishes of not participating in such events! We had fun, even though it wasn't snowing nor did it snow much so far this year at all! The snow was packed hard but we had a good time! Gia is excited to go again and this time...hopefully she won't be as sore! It will definitely be a fun snowy winter for us!
