2007 Christmas Tree

Tonight Jonahton, Payton and I went with Linda, Rick and Natalie to pick out our Christmas Tree. We went to the Chrismtas Tree Workshop on 44 in Sorrento. It is so neat out there because they have a little petting zoo, hayrides, a fire to roast marshmellow and beautiful Christmas trees. Going out there made me want to get a goat because they had the cutest little girl goat that kept coming up to me... I think it was because she thought I had food.

We got the Christmas tree up with no hassle and I decorated it in 15 minutes and yes that is with the lights. I had to be fast because my little monkey wanted to play after her dinner. We were considering not getting a tree this year because we were afraid that Payton would pull it over but she has actually been very good with it. She wanted nothing to do with it at first until she discovered the lights on it. She makes Christmas time so much fun.

It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

GO GATORS! 45-12
Today Jonathon and I went to the UF vs FSU game with Rhea and Geoffrey to watch the Gators blow away the Seminoles! Gators won 45 to 12… Go Gators! Payton (my future Gator cheerleader) went to my mom’s house to cheer the Gators on… that’s probably why they won ;)!

So Thankful This Thanksgiving 2007!

Thanksgiving was a blast this year and I have so much to be thankful for. Jonathon, Payton and I started off at Linda and Rick’s house and ate and ate and ate. Linda does such a great job with her dinner. We then played some games and headed off for my mom's house were we ate and ate and ate! My mom makes the best sweet turkey and it is so great to hang out with my brother and his girlfriend Sarah. After we all had full bellies we sat around and watched home videos and laughed all night. Here are a few of the thousands of things I have to be grateful for this year:

*This holiday and the opportunity it gives me to remember what I am thankful for and the time I get to spend with family.



*My amazing daughter Payton who has brought so much into my life.

*My husband Jonathon who I am so blessed to be able to spend time and eternity with.

*My mother who has been my bestfriend and such a great role model.

*My mother and father-in-law Linda and Rick who have been such a great example and are always there for me, Jonathon and Payton.

*My sister and brother Christy and Bryant.

*My sisters and brother-in-laws Katelyn, Rhea, Natalie, Geoffrey and Michael (and future in-laws; Sarah and Cameron)

*My nieces and nephew Cameryn, Madison, Jayden and soon to be Macie.

*My mother and father-in-law Konnie and Ricky.

*All of my amazing friends.

*The blessing of being an American.

*The opportunity I have to work with Bling.

*To be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

*The opportunity I have to serve with the Young Women.

*Jesus Christ and the Atonement.


*Technology and the way it has improved our lives.

*Aimee and Brianna and all of their help with Payton.
I have so much more I am thankful for but I would be here all day!

Cali Emma

This is our crazy dog Cali Emma…she lives a tough life ;). Payton loves to play with her and she loves to avoid Payton. I'd be lying if I said there was not a little jealous between the two of them... but when Payton is eating dinner or a snack Cali is Payton's bestfriend.

Katelyn's Shower

Rhea and I did Katelyn's shower on Friday night and it turned out lovely! There was lots of people, food, presents and fun. Katelyn is due on December 3, 2007 and I can't wait to meet baby Macie Kate!

Yesterday was the Eustis ward Fall Festival. It was lot of Fall Fun! Rhea is in charge of the activities for the ward and she did a great job with putting everything together and making it a fun event... Thanks Rhea! The event had a hay ride, volleyball, pie eating contest (which the Berge Family dominated), face painting, cupcake walk, delicious food and lots and lots of fun. It was so nice to have a chance to hang out with the entire ward in a casual setting. Jonathon, Payton and I are so blessed to have so many wonderful people to go to church with. After the Festival a bunch of us went back to Rhea and Geoffrey's house to watch the Gators kill the Gamecocks... Go Gators.

Payton, the Park and the Kiss!

Today Payton and I could not resist the beautiful November weather so we decide to go to the park down the street. Payton had a great time running around until a little two year old boy named Jayden decided he wanted to play with Payton as well. Everything was fine until Jayden tried to kiss Payton. That’s when she came running to my leg and holding on for dear life. Jayden continued trying until he got a big kiss on Payton’s forehead. Payton had the most bashful look I have ever seen on her. Thank goodness daddy was not there to witness that first;) . Jayden’s parents said that he had a cousin Payton’s age that he always tries to kiss. It was all too cute!

Halloween was wonderful again this year. Payton was a butterfly and I dressed up like a witch with the hopes of there being other adults dressed up... which there was not! O well it was still a blast being silly and what other day can you be what ever you want with minimal comments?
