So I just took the most amazing trip to Rexburg, Idaho. It was quick, but well worth it. I went up there with Kristen, Todd, and his wife Elizabeth. We went up for the Rexburg Temple open house. They had a special open house before the regular one for all the people who worked on the temple. Todd got us tickets because his architecture firm are the ones who designed it. All four of us were up there at the same time in 2001 so it was kind of like a little reunion for us. I forgot how much snow they get up there! This is the pool at our hotel. Brrr.....

The one Christmas tradition that me and Brandon have done for three Christmases in a row now (seems weird we've known each other that long) is going to see the candy windows on Provo Center Street. We made it out last week on Friday night to go see the candy windows. They actually weren't as good as last year, but they're always cool. Here are a few pictures of the best ones.

Last Saturday we did quite a few things in celebration of December. We started out the day with our ward Christmas party. Me and Brandon are on the activities committee so we had to help out a lot but we still enjoyed it. We had a Christmas breakfast and of course did packages and letters to the missionaries. Here's Brandon writing a note to the missionaries.
After the ward Christmas party, we all went and saw Enchanted, which is such a GREAT movie! We loved it. We even missed the first part but that just gives us an excuse to go and see it a second time! :)
Saturday night we were supposed to go to Emily's for a Ricks Roommate Reunion dinner but with all that crazy snow, we just stayed home and made gingerbread houses with Jason and Shannon. We also made homemade Sonic drinks with a snow cone maker and everything. They were really good! (Props to Jason and Brandon who thought of the idea all on their own and actually bought everything we needed for it, including fresh limes and lemons and frozen strawberries! We were very impressed.)

Okay, so this may not seem that cool to some of you, but it was the BEST surprise for me! I could explain why it was so cool for me, but in order to avoid a post like the ones I hate to read, I'll spare you the details. Last night when I got home from work Brandon had surprised me by going to the store, buying a Christmas tree for us, and having it all set up. It was awesome! I'm so much more excited for Christmas now. I know this isn't a great picture...and we still need to go buy some decorations...but it's still our first Christmas tree and I love it. :)
