Christmas Weekend

Hope everyone had a really great Christmas weekend! I know we did! 

Friday, after my half day of work (woot!), Tys and I met up for lunch, then hit up the mall for some last minute shopping for him. Decided to pick up a jacket since he seems to be lacking them for some reason. Can't believe how crazy the mall is the day before Christmas - get your crap together earlier people! lol

That night, we went to the Planetarium to catch a show. I bought a 2 for 1 movie coupon on back in June and it expires at the end of the month so we finally decided to just go use it. We ended up seeing "Starry Tales". It wasn't like their usual scientific explanation shows. It was in the Hanson Dome and was just a fun mythological take on the stars and their stories. It was fun :)

Saturday, we drove down to his parent's house for Christmas Eve with the Bucks. We were really thrown off schedule this year; Ry&Mad are in Texas so we did Christmas day at my mom's and Christmas Eve at the Buck's - it's usually the other way around.

But it was a lot of fun! After a yummy brunch that Roxi made for us, we opened gifts. I got some super cute PJs from Victoria's Secret; Buck tradition :), some perfume, and a gift card to Hobby Lobby - they know me all too well lol. Tyson's mom and I should have coordinated better, turns out we both got him Modern Warfare 3 lol. Oh well, we'll trade one for a different gift.

You have to be a brave wife to buy your husband these games; you can definitely count on them playing for a minimum of an hour each time it's on lol.

Tyson and I bought the Bucks the game Quelf. It seriously is one of our new favorites. It is hysterical and really easy to catch onto. Lots of acting things out and making yourself look like an idiot lol. My kind of game :). Definitely a family game recommendation.
Jason and I humming a poem while being a Prison Guard with no lips and knees glued together lol 
After playing Quelf for 2 hours, we headed over to Roxi's brother's house for family dinner. Just a bunch of the cousins together havin fun. Not only was there dinner, but a mini-Christmas program. All the kids performed their cute piano numbers, and then the Buck's had a different take on family talent lol
Definitely think Jason's skills are the best lol 

Our matching jammies
After dinner at the Orr's, Tys and I were gonna just head home but decided to head back to the Buck's for another round of Quelf til 12:30 in the morning lol. Needless to say we slept in til about 11 on Sunday lol.

Sunday, we went up to Suncrest to church with my mom. They had a Christmas Program that lasted a little longer than hoped for lol, but the kids singing Drummer Boy was so cute lol. I love this time of the year. The older we get, the more we realize how anti-climatic things seem, but realize more and more what things are REALLY about this day.
After church and after mom and I whipped up food for Christmas dinner, we opened gifts before eating. We got some great clothes, shoes, boots, cash, etc. The usual goods :). Thank you mama and Steph for the great gifts - we love em.

Bought mama a monogrammed robe from Pottery Barn
Shaggy Maxi
Tyson and I bought the game Things for the Shillingford family; so after dinner we all played. It is such a funny game. More of a chill game but definitely funny since things always manage to turn really raunchy with these types of games lol. So funny!

After our game, the family went to the movies to see Mission Impossible 4. I was really hesitant on going since I am not a Tom Cruise fan and didn't even see #'s 2 or 3. But, it was REALLY good! We saw it at the IMAX theatre at Jordon Commons and it was amazing! I've never seen a movie on that screen and it was huge! And the sound system was a amazing as well! Definitely a recommended movie to go see!

We definitely missed having Ryan and Madison around this year though. They better not be falling in love with Texas....

My mom and Tyson made the mistake Roxi and I made, they doubled up on a crepe maker for me :). I love it though - it serves as a griddle as well. After picking up some groceries at the store this morning, I made crepes for brunch.

I've been in love with crepes since I first had one from our neighbor's the Williamson's (her blog is Purple Chocolat). Her husband Kirk makes the best ice cream crepes and I can't get enough of them now! Definitely think I need some recipe tips from them though.... mine just didn't have enough flavoring. But the filling and fruit was so yummy!

We finally finished the last 121st episode of Lost today! It was pretty confusing but I think I understood. People online don't seem to like how it ended but I did. Such a good show! Not sure what our next show will be :)

Well, that's all for our Christmas weekend! Loved having the day off from work today. Not to mention, we'll be leaving for St. George/Vegas after work Thursday and we'll get back next Monday. Can't wait to get out of town :)
Happy Holidays everyone!!!!
