Draper Open House

I wanted a picture of us out front but there was no where to take one. But this is a good shot from the shuttle back down to the parking lot.
Here we are riding up to the temple

This weekend we went to the Draper open house with my family. My parents had gotten enough tickets that we could go with them. I was glad because I hadn't even thought about getting tickets. So I am glad that we were able to go with them. It was a nice experience although Makenna was not excited to sit through the movie at the church before hand. And then when we some how ended up in a room at the temple to watch it again she was even more restless. It was really nice to walk through and see all the different rooms though. I love new temples and they are all so gorgeous. It was a nice experience at the temple and then afterward we went to lunch at Goodwood. I had never eaten there and it was really good. So thanks to my parents for the tickets and lunch!

Spring Fever

I am so ready for winter to be over. I can't wait to wear my shorts and Capri's again and it will be so nice to not have to wear a sweater over everything! I am always so cold. Well today was a really nice day. I woke up to the sun shinning in through our blinds. I loved it. So after lunch Makenna and I went for a drive and after stopping at three different parks we finally found one with out dogs to jump on us. Makenna had so much fun. She finally got up the courage to go down the big twisty slide and after that she did it about 20 more times. I didn't think I'd ever get her away from there! She had so much fun! I think we are both so ready for some warm weather. I didn't take my camera today but I found a picture from around this same time last year.

So we have lived in our house for 3 and 1/2 months and I have hardly done any decorating. But really, who has money to decorate after they finish paying the mortgage! I love my house so much that I don't even care that everything seems so bare. But I have done a few things so I thought I would post them. So here they are!

This is just a shelf I painted and decorated. It is in our family room

This is the vinyl I put up in Makenna's bathroom. I printed it with my cricut and all I can say is I really love that machine!

Here it is again with Makenna's little "potty buddy!"

Her cute toothbrush holder. Makenna threw her good toothbrush in the garbage can so we need to go get her a new one.

Her cute shower curtain. Thanks to her Aunt Shellie who actually bought all the monkey accessories for her.

And this is Makenna's cute shelf and name. This is actually the second shelf, the first one was a complete disaster! I just love the brown wall!

Well, when I get the kitchen stuff up and our bedroom curtains up I will have to post those pictures too.
