In my free time

I hope you like my new creation designed with Photoshop Elements!! I am taking a two day class next month so hopefully I will learn a bunch of new things and get some new digi paper too.

Megan's Baby Shower (In October)

One of my best friends, Megan, had a baby back in October and we decided to throw her a baby shower while she was in Reno before Christmas. Here are some pics from the event.

It was so much fun to gather with family and friends and to have a BabyBottle Drinking Contest, play a "Famous Mothers" game, eat amazing food and open gifts!

Janelle & Heidi slurping down the apple juice in these bottles!
Julie Marchant playing along also :)
This is the adorable cake that Isabelle's Bakery made.
All of the delicious deserts, we had amazing soups too.
Of course water and Shirley Temples.

All of us girls were able to make it to the shower. From left to right, Me, Ronnie, Meg, Sara, Heidi and Janelle.

My First Attempt at Photoshop Elements!!

So tonight I decided to play around on Photoshop Elements that my WONDERFUL husband got me for Christmas. I have been doing a little online research about how to do different projects so I decided to follow a tutorial and create a BEAUTIFUL layout, and I thought I'd share it with YOU!

Enjoy! More creations to come!

The Rest of St. George Trip

On the Sunday after Thanksgiving we celebrated Grandpa's birthday! It was fun to see a lot of the cousins and to eat delicious desserts.

Matt's grandparents and us.

Matt with his Grandpa and Grandma Barlow.

On Tuesday before we went home we were able to go through a session at the St. George Temple. It was really neat to go to a big temple. Matt and I were by far the youngest in the session and I was surprised that only 13 people needed to use the elevator :) Also, during the session the lady in front of me started to fall over, so I had to help steady her... that doesn't happen very often!

It was a lot of fun being about to spend time in St. George and see family. Matt & I love it there and can't wait to go back. Thanks Mom and Dad for letting us stay with you and taking care of us :)

Back Blog: Thanksgiving in St. George

Over Thanksgiving weekend we flew to St. George for a 2nd Thanksgiving dinner and to spend time with Matt's parents, Alan & Annette's family and Kirt & Amberly's family. We had a blast eating, watching Wall-e like 3 times, hiking Red Cliffs, and spending time in Enterprise.

Here are some pics of our hike at Red Cliffs:

Ashlan and the beautiful fall leaves.

Dallin and Ashlan up on top of the cliffs.

Matt & Ashy

Dallin, Mia, Jaxon, Ethan, Logan, Jaydan (Ashlan and Noah are missing)

All the kids wanted to sit by Matt on this giant rock

All of us, except Dad he was in charge of getting the pizza :)

Some of the older kids kept hiking and climbed over this rock wall.

Jaxon climbing back down.

Mom and I watched the kids climb and held the dog.

Mia and Logan followed me around most of the weekend... they are so adorable.

Dad bought the pizza and each kid ate 3 pieces, it was CRAZY!

Yumm Yumm.
