Necklaces and Bracelets

Hi all!

So once again I am promoting my friend Sharianna's business. She sells custom made bracelets and necklaces for infants through adults...and they are cute cute cute! Ordering is very easy as it can be done straight from the website. If you have a baby shower to go to soon or a friends gift to purchase, this is the place to do it! Here is one example of an infants bracelet (they can be done with pearls or crystals).

For any of you who don't know me, i'm a "LOST" addict. I have tried over and over to quit this addiction, but I continually give in to my cravings, week after week, year after year. I am proud to announce that I am STILL a LOST addict and am SO excited that the fifth season is starting tomorrow night. I just have one dilemma. I told my visiting teachers to come that night (forgetting this momentous occasion) and now must find a way to rearrange the meeting. David wants me to wait until this weekend and watch it with him on since he has school that night...but i'm not sure I can stand knowing that millions of viewers have already watched the 2-3 hour long premier....and I HAVE NOT! Lost is about a group of people who survived a plane crash and land on a mysterious island where crazy people called "the others" live. The plane survivors must learn to live with each other and endure the threats posed by the island and "the others"...each episode is rather addicting as each one ends leaving you with more questions then what you started with. It's delightfully entertaining. I believe these are the people that remain (about half of the amount of people that started on the island).

Thank you to all of those who posted helpful comments about housing. We will prayerfully considering where we should move or if we should stay here a little longer. I find myself dreading being in another ward because this one is SO amazing.
**Side note: I've decided I LOVE to cook and bake, and my mom will attest that this is a shocker because prior to being married, i wanted nothing to do with preparing/making/or baking food of any kind (outside of my famous chocolate chip cookies). So any of you who make yummy recipes please feel free to share. I'm always looking for something new to add into our meals for the week :)

Christmas Post #2-as promised

Again this year we missed going up to the snow with David's family because David was working, and I.....didn't want to go by myself :( We mentioned our wanting to go to the snow with my brother since we went with him last year and soon plans were made-December 31st was the day that became our fun snow trip with my family. Driving up we saw very little snow and it was around 51 degrees so I was afraid that all of it had melted. Luckily the place we usually go to was still covered in snow and so many people were there sledding and we joined in on the fun. Below are some pictures of adventure. The ones with my mom and sisters in them are so funny, mostly because they used a deflated air mattress along with a foam mattress cover (that people use while camping) and that was their sled. It worked out great but they ended up falling over quite a bit.

On another note, David and I have been praying as to whether or not we should stay in our apartment another year. Our lease ends in May and it would be wonderful to find an affordable two bedroom apartment/condo/townhouse not too far from where we are. If you hear of anything in East..east...Mesa or in Gilbert thats under 720$ a month please let us know :)

Above is my mom, Kiara, and Stacey with the snowman they built, below is my family huddled in the half-built fort. We couldn't finish it because it took over an hour to make the little bit that we did.
