Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It's that time of year again. When OfficeMax has it's ElfYourself. Go to this link and watch McKay and I and our friends Megan and Chad being Elfed. It's so fun. I do it to all of my friends. You might pee your pants.


My new sweet baby - Baby McCourtney!

Thanks to my friend Shalyce, you go on this website called Make Me Babies where you can use pictures of your husband and you and it will show you what your children will look like. Here are the results:

Here is the boy version of us, it kind of looks like my lil bro Cameron

Here is baby Zalia, I guess I can't complain because they could look a lot uglier.

Mustache anyone?

This is what McKay and I did over the weekend. It's rather weird, but I got a kick out of it.











I found these glasses and thought it would be fun to get a picture of the entire family with it on. We have some very attractive people in the Killpack family.

Ball Game and Birthday

This week has been a good one.

First, McKay got a 100% on a circuit test, which is his hardest class this semester. He was so happy he offered to do the dishes. Pat on the back for you babe!

Earlier this week I thought I'd use my speaking skills and entered into a speech contest at school. I decided to talk about something I felt passionate about. So I decided to talk about why it is so important for women to wear the right bra size. My three points were

1. It will boost a woman's confidence
2. It will make a woman looker thinner
3. It's important in maintaining healthy breasts

This is how most women feel after fitting them

The world's largest bra

Look what a correct fitting bra can do! It's a miracle.

I knew if there were a lot of men participants and judges they would certainly pay attention to my speech. It was fun, I gave my speech twice and made it to the second round. I didn't make it to the final round, but I had a fun time. One of my teacher's who was a judge told me she saw my score and said that I did really well. You should have seen some of the responses I back from members of the audience while giving my speech. I could tell some men left uncomfortable, most looked very interested by nodding and smiling a lot, and a lot of girls asked me questions after. I felt good about it. I felt like my mission was accomplished by educating everyone the importance of wearing the correct bra size.

Now remember girls, your breast friend is a correct fitting bra!

On Friday night McKay and I went with his brother Taylor and his girlfriend Katie to the BYU Men's Basketball game. We ended up winning which was cool. The entire time I liked dogging on BYU because they couldn't make a 3-point shot. I could tell that McKay was getting mad because how dare anyone diss his beloved school! I was wearing green because I knew it would make McKay made that I wasn't wearing blue.

Thanks McKay for looking into the camera

McKay wouldn't look in the camera, but that's ok, this pictured turned out pretty dorky anyway

Afterwards we went to Pudding on the Rice. They have such good rice pudding, yum. I was so happy because McKay and I both had leftovers and I was so excited for tomorrow to come home from work and to eat the rest of my rice pudding. I didn't know this but Burger Supreme in Provo has $1.00 burgers after 9 p.m! I couldn't believe it, so we had to go get some burgers. We came back to our apartment and watched a James Bond movie called "With Love from Russia." It was a Sean Connery one from the 60's, it was so psychedelic baby!

Saturday morning I went into work and came back around 2. Again, I was so looking forward to coming home and eating my rice pudding! I walk in the door and see two empty Pudding on the Rice bowls on the ground. I never felt so much rage than at this moment! I confronted McKay about the empty bowls and he admitted to eating them both! I was so ticked! I was so mad I cleaned the tub and toilet. I wouldn't talk to McKay for two hours. I know this sounds really ridiculous to be mad about, I felt so disappointed. I calmed down and was able to forgive McKay, he offered to buy me more, a lot more.

That night, McKay and I met our good friends Amber and Tage up in Layton at Tepanyaki because it was Amber's birthday this week. I've never been, so I was looking forward to this treat. It was pretty impressive the onion volcano, them chopping up food so fast, and feeling the heat of the flames on my face. It was fun, but I did find this scary and creepy life-size Asian doll.

I heart your ears!

Tage, always so inappropriate

The rest of the night we played games, talked about old times, and had fun with baby Davis. We slept over at my parents house, ate breakfast with my family, and came back to Provo in time to go to church. We actually did some fun things this week.

Plans For 2nd Anniversary!

This December on the 27th McKay and I will be celebrating our 2nd Anniversary. I'm really excited for this year because we actually get to go do something fun. Last year we ended up watching a movie and putting up our tent in our living room (lame!) But this year we saved up and were going to The Blue Boar Inn in Midway!

The Blue Boar Inn

We chose the Emily Dickinson room, how charming!

McKay's Prepardness

Last night right before I went to bed, I grabbed a drink of water from the kitchen and I saw this.

McKay got his breakfast ready to go in the morning.

He even put sugar in the spoon so he wouldn't waste any time in the morning.

I walked into the bathroom and this is what I see

McKay had his soccer clothes all pretty and ready to go when he hops out of the shower

I turn around and see

All of McKay's morning essentials picked out

I walked into our bedroom and asked why did you get everything ready for tomorrow morning, even the sugar in the spoon. I laughed and said you're a cute dork. He got embarrassed, but knew I meant it in a loving way. The weird and silly things husbands do.

Last night when getting in bed to go to sleep, I turn over to set my radio and guess what I hear, CHRISTMAS MUSIC! I can't believe radio stations are playing it already. I do have to admit my favorite Christmas Album is this one:

Happy Halloween

I get so excited for Halloween. Especially with having an excuse to dress up crazy and be someone your not for a day. To start the day I worked at my internship. This is one of the reasons why I like interning where I do, they go all out. They have a big Halloween/best costume and pumpkin carving contests. Majority of the employees dressed up. I saw all sorts of good costumes. We paraded around the building to show the people who didn't participate. I felt like it was an episode straight from The Office. Later, we enjoyed cider, hot chocolate and donuts and cast our ballots for best costume and pumpkin.

The Halloween party at my internship

I had to take a break from work and go to school. I thought there would be more people who would dressed up. My teacher didn't recognize me when calling role.

I was asked to pass out candy at the Pleasant Grove Trunk or Treat for businesses in PG. It was fun seeing all of the kids costumes. I saw a lot of Indiana Jones and Hannah Montana. After 3 hours and 4,000 pieces of candy later, I met McKay at his parents house for a Halloween feast. Later we thought we'd go to the BYU's civil engineers haunted house. It was free so there wasn't so I shouldn't have expected so much. It took us 2 minutes to go through it. McKay and I were exhausted from a long day and went home after. Not very exciting Halloween, but hey that's ok.

My pumpkins! I painted the white one and ModPodge the other
