Ma best friend.

Xanthe is my best friend. She moved to Virginia. I am sad that she is not so near me anymore. She is amazing and I love her.
The night before she and David left to make the drive, she came by and we were able to hang out for one last time in Utah together. :)
The next time I see her will be April when I fly out to see the new baby! So weird!!

We have had such a wonderful friendship....*cheesy part* the kind of friendship where you know, without a doubt, that you will be friends until you are old and wheeling around in a nursing home, completely senile. THEN, you will be New Friends!! :D Yayyyy!!

Here are the pictures from our last day together. ...for now. :)
 
 
Here is what we looked like in High School. haha. We had this photo taken. BEST FRIEND PHOTO!

 


 
  <3 BFF!

Babies, babies everywhere!

Two of my bestest closest friends a mommies! One had her baby at the beginning of December, and the other will be having her baby in April! I couldn't wait to go see my friend Crystal's little baby boy, Briggson! I was able to go over to her place the DAY after he was born! He is a cutie and my friend Crystal is such a cute mommie! I love them both.
WELCOME BABY BRIGGSON!!


So precious! 

New mom! 

My favorite pic of the day. <3 <3 <3 

In that same week, I helped to host a baby shower for my best friend Xanthe and her baby GIRL!!
She was getting ready for a big move across the country to Virginia, so we had to throw the shower before she left, even though she was only 5 months pregnant.

Xanthe wanted a bumble-bee theme, 
my mom MADE this cake for her shower!

Also these cupcakes! Sooo cute!
Everything was edible and made by hand. 
My mom is amazing. :) 

The beautiful mommy-to-bee!

Beautiful table of treats for her shower. :) 

Super cute diaper cake that my sister in law made! 
Cutting the cake! 

Opening presents!

Sisters, sisters!
It was a great day and a fun week! So many babies! I love my friends and I love that they are embarking on new journeys as mothers. That is something I know I'm not ready for, but I'm glad I can help them out and enjoy their sweet babies! :)

The Christmas Season Arrives!!

Shortly after we arrived home from Arizona we pulled our Christmas boxes out of the closet! 


Steven got a little distracted while setting up the Christmas tree.
Having an adorable little cat does that. :) 


Missy was really excited about the Christmas decorations...
or rather the boxes they came in. haha.
Also she liked her Christmas stocking. :) 


I am starting a snowman collection! On the floor is one I got from my friend Christie,
and in my hand is the one I made at a Relief Society activity.
I looove me some snowmen!!

As soon as we got the tree up, Missy started chewing on it. 
She also really enjoys sleeping under it. 
Even with the lights are on. :) So cute!

We tried to help Missy get festive by putting a little scarf on her.
She was not amused. 


We love our little kitty!

Here's about what it looked at once we got all the decorations up.

We had lots of great activities this month! 
Our friend Camille Bradford hosted a graham-cracker-house making party.

Here are our friend Kyle and Lauren working on their masterpiece. 


Here are Tyler and Ethan attempting a second house.
Their first attempt went...a little downhill. haha.

Here is our house! 

I did all the frosting work on it, while Steven was the main architect!

Our awesome house!! 

Lauren and Kyle's completed house! So cute!!

Yay! Candy garden!

Lookie lookie! Missy didn't like the scarf, so I got her a little festive collar! 

Aww! Our lil' Christmas elf!

Our house again...right before we ate it. 

Nom...

Nom...

NOM!!! :D 

Merry Christmas to us!!! 

Thanksgiving Weekend and the 2011 Jenson Family Reunion

My Dad's family has a reunion every other summer. The 4 children (he and his siblings) take turns hosting. This year it was my uncle Roberts turn to host, so we headed down to sunny Arizona! It was a fun-filled Thanksgiving full of movies, games, and family adventures. Enjoy the pictures! :)
