The Christmas Post

Hey All!

Sorry this post is a bit late! But you'll have to forgive me. I've been enjoying my very first Christmas with my boy, and my only Christmas with a fiance!

Though I must admit, I kind of missed waiting around for that Skype call from the Philippines
(not really)

We'll start at Christmas Eve
It was Clay and I's first experience trying to mix family traditions

Meaning it was Clay's first time Christmas Eve Bowling...
After dating for almost 3 years can you believe I have never been bowling with him?
And we're Mormon?

It makes no sense.

As you can see he did well the first round...

But the pressure started to wear on him...

and me..

that's the face of failure right there...

Clay is feeling confident. Me, not so much
This is right before Clay had his random "Hitch" moment and swelled up like a balloon. Unfortunately, I was too distracted by this to realize I might want to take pictures for posterity. Sad Days.

And the final score of the second game!
Probably the best I've ever bowled in my life
But it was Britton that pulled it out in the end with his 5 strikes and put the rest of us to shame.

Later that evening we got to open our Baird Christmas pajamas

Which happened to coordinate this year

This photo pretty much sums up our relationship
Love him


Christmas Morning

at the Baird house, it looks like this...

Britton came out of the carnage with a nice bass guitar...

At the Reed house the favorite gift was "Just Dance 2"

I. Can't. Dance.

But apparently it is a requirement at the Reed household

And apparently Clay has some hidden talents that I didn't know about
Just another reason I love him

On a different note, Rach and I have a new love...
His name is Skiing

I personally have had an on again, off again relationship with skiing

But at the moment I can see this being a long and fulfilling relationship

Plus, who wouldn't want to be a ski bum?

Hey Bloggies!

Holy Moly it's been a while!
Finals kind of took over my life there for a little bit (a lot)

It's definitely been a bit of a downer when it comes to my blogging life!
O the life of an art major

But the good news is, instead of having a nice A on the top of a test at the end of the semester to show for it, I have some artwork!
See below....
I call this series-Happily Never After
Red Riding Hood

Sleeping Beauty

Snow White


Frog Princess


You like?
I was pretty pleased with the results myself.

Good news was I didn't completely kill my social life with finals week and we threw a little party last thursday
An ugly sweater party to be exact...
The girlies! Yes, Rach, Mariss, and I are wearing ornaments for earings. Love it

We had lots of activities. Like a gingerbread house contest
And we just enjoyed each other's company
(Guess what? These 2 got engaged yesterday! Congrats Zena and Zack!)
Party=a success!

Finals are OVER!

Which means I FINALLY get to start getting everything ready for MARCH 4th!
I seriously can't wait!
and I promise more frequent updates here!

Bring on the Christmas Break and the Wedding Planning!
