What a wonderful Christmas!! It was so much fun being able to spend it with my husband!! We have had other Christmases together, but this one topped them all. It's so wonderful being with someone you love so much on Christmas. Here are some pictures of the day.Us on Christmas eve. We watched Christmas movies, I made batter for coffee cake for Christmas morning, and then we slept with out tree lights on listening to the 100 hours of Christmas on FM 100.
The top picture is of our cute tree with the presents under it, the next is of our stockings all filled up, and the other two are Sam and I opening some of our gifts. Besides the snuggie, I also got really good perfume, a string for my violin so i can pick it up again and a stand for my music, a Kate Nash CD, LOTR Fellowship of the Ring extended version, and a picture of the temple that says "where our family became forever." Sam sure spoiled me this year!! Besides the stuff though, Christmas was just so wonderful. We were together, we visited our family, and of course remembered the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Christmas was just awesome. I can't wait for many years to come.

Boy oh boy! Time goes by so fast!! A year ago today, December 23, 2008, Sam asked me to be his wife!! I had been expecting it for months before it happened; Halloween, Thanksgiving, pretty much any weekend we were together. The poor guy didn't have even a chance to make it a surprise. He wanted to go to Temple Square that night so once again I thought "oh its tonight!" Well it was, and my heart was beating fast and my palms were sweating as he tried to dig the ring out of his pocket. I said yes and here we are, a year later, happily married forever!! I still can't believe it!! Love you Sam!!

Introducing the newest member of our family, the one, the only, Officer Watts, the Donut Shop Cop!! Creepy? Yes. Awesome? Yes, that as well. Sam and I were walking around town today when we walked by this shop, called Zims, that is going out of business. There were creepy displays in the window, so we thought heck, why not take a gander inside. Upon going in the shop, we first noticed an old people musty smell. It was great fun. We found Officer Watts right off. He was only $5 so we decided to buy him. I mean why not right? That is one deal the Tappana's can't pass down. So we grabbed him. As we were looking around the shop we found other treasures. Some stuff outside the door were free even, but they were to creepy to take home, like old naked dolls from the 70's and old naked barbies as well. We also found old wedding planning books from like 1995. Sure wish I had that when i planned mine!! Anyway, it ended up being such a fun afternoon at Zims and we are so happy about our purchase of Officer Watts. Best $5 spent ever!

Its December, and I'm in the Christmas mood. Last night was a really fun night! Sam and I set up our tree!! It used to be my brothers tree, and before that it was my Grannys tree, and now we welcomed it to our home!! It is a very loved tree. It has a few snags, well only 2. One, it already has lights on it and half of them are out and two, it sometimes falls over, but we love it! After we put the tree up, we snuggled on the couch and watched "The Santa Clause." It was a very relaxing and wonderful start to the Christmas season!!
