Ow Now Brown....House

I was so sick of our brown brown brown house, so i decided to do a project i saw at IKEA with my old roommate, Lexie last year. Bryant and i went to IKEA to find fabrics that worked, made FIVE trips to Home Depot, *No exaggeration* run to his parents house a couple times, and FINALLY finished this last weekend.

We started by cutting the wood into 12 in. pieces with the ends in 45 degree angles. Thank you handy husband.
Thank you Bryant for ALWAYS having his crack out and i couldn't get a picture of the blocks without it ha. Oh well.
I cut batting to fit each block
I cut the fabric to fit the square then stapled it tight to the wood
We put some wood on the back and screwed all of the squares in. this is the point where Bryant started cursing profanities. OH WELL! It is cute.
Final Product! It ended up being 3 feet by 4 feet. I love it so much i am hoping to make some pillows or something on our couch with the extra fabric. I am so ready for color!

Another Picture Overload. Christmas!

Bryant and I were able to go to Vegas to visit with my family this Christmas. He had work the first week of our Christmas break, but he joined me there on christmas eve. My sister in law Jen gave my parents a "grandkids" frame so we had planned on getting all of them together to take pictures... just try to tell me they aren't the sweetest things you have seen. IN YOUR LIFE.

This is Austin and Jess's sweet baby girl Chloe. I love you dark hair!
Sweet and Sassy Hazel wearing the cute dress nana made her.
These handsome fellas are my sister Jen and her husband Jeff's boys. Tylere is seriously the biggest stud. I can't believe how old he is getting. He is so fun and the ladies love him. On the Left we have smiley Dustin, and the right we have little man in a baby body Dylan.
So happy Dylan
Dustin Giggling at Tyler
I decided to see if Hazel would sit still long enough for me to paint her nails. (if you don't know.. I love love love painting nails) She did so well!!! My sister in law Jen said that after she went home she kept looking at them and saying "Oohhhhh Audie" She is the sweetest.
Sad sad Chloe and just a few of my chins.
This picture is from Thanksgiving, but i thought is was cute. She loved the snow.
My parents got everyone Christmas PJ's which i wear all the time here in Utah. Bryant keeps our house an ice box... He will sacrifice my frostbitten toes for a lower gas bill i suppose.
(look at those rosy cheeks. Yep. I love him)
Overall, Christmas in vegas was so so fun. Our first christmas as a married couple. I was so surprised at how much we spent! holy cow. I keep telling myself, we won't have to buy stockings, Christmas tree(we got a fake one..real ones make me sneeze) christmas lights, or ornaments! and MY sweet mom gave us some really cute decorations we used to put up in our house in Vegas. It makes me feel like a little bit of Vegas is still here with me in Utah. I love living with the love of my life and i can't wait for next Christmas!!! Merry Christmas Everyone!.... in 11 months.

So i know i am skipping some months, but i am starting from November and going from there. :] The past few months have been so crazy! Bryant has been in the automotive program at UVU, and i am finally in my last semester of my undergrad at UVU as well. I am seriously so stoked. I can't express it. We moved into our new home which we LOVE! (pictures to come) Rufis loves it i know it. My two new nephews were born in august and my sweet niece Chloe was born in December. It's times like this when i wish i still lived in Vegas so i could see them more. Aunt Audie misses them. Anyway, moving on to November's activities...

The kids threw my mom a surprise party for her 60th birthday. While i was calling and inviting people, one of her friends said it well... "Ohhhhh She is going to be so mad! I'm there." We weren't going to play any pranks or set up diapers or any of that crap so i knew she would get over it quick ;] My dad came up with the great idea to take her to St. George to play golf and stay the night so Bryant and i could drive down from utah and we would have time to set up while they were gone. It was so fun and I'm glad everyone could make it out!

What a guy. He is seriously my favorite. I've decided the candy that best suits him is a War Head. *my mouth is watering* he looks sour on the outside, but is so so loving and sweet. LOVE HIM.

Me and my Ma. Where did i get my squinty eyes? Ahh yes. Her... She is pretty.
My brother Jason, his wife Jen and little Hazel came to stay with us right after Thanksgiving. We had a lot of fun going to temple square, kneaders for some yummy breakfast, and played in a huge snow storm. It was the first time Hazel had been old enough to really see and play in the snow. She was fine...... until she touched it. Still adorable though.

All in all, this winter was so much fun and we are so glad to have a place where family and friends can come stay with us. Christmas post next! ..I hope.
