HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

after a lovely christmas break we have made it home in time for the new year. i dont have our christmas pictures together yet but here are a few pre activities we did. happy new year!
we are on the activities committee in our ward and were put in charge of the talent show. which also meant we had to be the mc's, by us i mean mik, but we both dressed up and made it fun!


we asked a girl to take our picture and this is what happened.....needless to say we had to do a retake!

the tuesday before christmas we had miks family over for dinner and a gift swap, it was nice to get together and we had a fun night!

we decided to make a bunch of different cookies for dessert. it was a fun idea but definitely time consuming! we made gingersnaps, chocolate thumbprints, mexican wedding cookies, and hazelnut chocolate sandwiches; which we'd never tried before but were SO GOOD! (courtesy of williams sonoma baking cookbook if you're interested!)

pretty much the whole family went to the jazz game monday night. we had a blast and it was such a good game, winning made it even better! go jazz!
