My Brother In-Law's Fiancee opens her gifts. Congrats to Taylor and Katie for getting engaged over Christmas!
McKay got his back-up drive and his Hello Panda candies from Japan.
Emily got her black sports bra. She's getting a supportive Christmas.
I got McKay a 6 X 8 ft sleeping bag. It was so awesome we could fit the entire family!
The whole entire family
Early Christmas morning we drove up to Centerville to be with the Craig's. Melanie, my older sister was still down in California, so it felt kind of weird not having her be there, but we did have a great time spending quality time with my family.
My Mom got me a Leg Lamp and a Leg Lamp bobble head from A Christmas Story. Tacky Christmas decorations, I heart it!
My Dad made us go on a GPS Scavenger Hunt to find our presents. Here is me with my new cute hat finding clues to find our presents.
The second object is this handmade scary/cute elf doll. I love it's grin, it kind of looks like a 90 year old lady, but it has so much charm that it's ugliness is overlooked by it's cuteness.
McKay finally found his gift back at my parents house and he found this TV! He was so happy and so surprised. I told McKay, "I think my parents like you the most out of anyone else in the family."

McKay and I sitting on Santa's lap
Liz and I at the Ward Christmas party!
Mckay and Bry
Liz, my dear friend couldn't wait to give me her Christmas gift. I was so excited because she got me a planner! It's not just any planner it's a Anne Taintor Planner. If you don't know who she is, she's a artist who likes to use vintage images and put sarcastic and crude sayings on them. I love her work because it's different and I get a kick out of it. Here are some samples of her art:
Here are some goofy pictures of me while working at Close To My Heart. You can tell we had some good times.

This weekend McKay had to drive all the way down to Fairview to do an install. On the way home he thought he would stop be the nearest river and fish. Because McKay loves fish and fishing more than anything else. I came home from a long and busy day at work and saw him doing this.
McKay found some nearly frozen guppies barely surviving in the river, so he took his Maverick gallon jug filled them up in it and brought them home so we could have some pets. He was so fascinated by them, he sat there and stared at them for 15 minutes. He thinks they are salmon. Yum!
This is one of the reasons why I love my husband because he always surprises me with his child-like passions he has, like fish. He looked like a 4 year old little boy so excited he caught something.
He later put in some rocks he found outside to give them a more "homey" feel. I'm sad to say that the majority of them have died. We gave them a quiet yet respectable funeral down our toilet. McKay was kind of sad that they've been dying off so fast. But he said they probably would have died if he didn't save them from the frozen grips of death.
Our good friends Megan and Chad came down and visited us. We ate at our favorite Indian restaurant. We were walking down Center-Street in Provo looking at the festive candy windows and we saw this.
It's a FREAKIN CAMEL!
I guess someone was having a Nativity Petting Zoo on the lawn of the Provo Tabernacle. Look at all of it's glory!
Chad and McKay had to get in of the action too!
They also had a pen of strange looking animals, but I couldn't resist not to take pictures of them!
A hairy midget donkey
This is some kind of lamb, you can barley tell it's his face. Look closely you can see it's eye.
This was probably the most random thing I've experienced in a while. It felt good to experience something spontaneous and random. I love that.
