Wow-I think I may officially be the worst blogger ever. Time has gone by so fast lately and I really do want to catch up on some highlights, so this will be short and sweet. I will try to do better and hopefully I won't be doing this all over again in December! So the biggest and most exciting thing that has happened since July is that we added a new little member to the McIntire family! He is by far the cutest and the hairiest-sorry babe. ;) His name is El Tigre and we couldn't love him more! He used to be so tiny! Look at those ears!
I suppose we added another member to our family in October as well-Dustin's new Dodge Ram. He was able to get a steal of a deal and we traded in our beloved Dakota. He loves it and I guess I do to! We picked it up in Littleton, CO and did a quick drive around downtown Denver. I really like Denver. If I couldn't live in Utah or Idaho, I think I would move to Denver.
At the end of October my FAMILY (my mama, Austin, and Alexis) came to visit me here in UTAH! I love love LOVE it when they visit-it's not very often. We packed it full of fun with a trip to the Living Planet Aquariam, Clark Planetarium, city swimming pool-and hanging out at home. Can't wait till they come visit me again. :)
Here are some pictures from Halloween: it was fairly uneventful--we stayed at home, watched scary movies, and handed out candy. We even dressed up this year!
he HATED wearing this but we made him anyway-he just looked so cute
We Had Thanksgiving in Rexburg and it was really fun! Unfortunately I didn't take my camera so I don't have any pictures from it. :( My mom sang in the Thanksgiving choir and it was great! There is no better way to start of the holiday season. We had a delicious dinner at my mom and dad's house-Connor made a fancy turkey, and Andrea made some other stuff, I just can't remember...Mom and I worked on potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Rolls, and dessert. I am so thankful for my wonderful family, and even more thankful we get to be together as a family for eternity. Also, my brother hit his one year mark on the mission! He is doing a great job in the Dominican Republic! Love you KRISTOPHER!
For Christmas we went South to warm and sunny California! I am lucky to have great inlaws-it was nice be able to go to the beach during the break. A little weird, but nice. Again, we didn't have a camera to take pictures with. :( We got one as a Christmas present but it didn't come in the mail until we were already home. I love the Christmas season. I love how everyone is just a little better version of themselves and realizes what is really important. We went to "Scrooge" at the Glendale theater to kick things off and were completely spoiled by Santa :)
Happy New YEAR! Glad that Dustin's family could celebrate with us
We like take pictures with our new camera-what a beautiful temple!
Happy Birthday to my Father-in-Law John!
My wonderful hubby celebrated birthday #27-This is him with his favorite birthday present ever. His sister Wendy sent him a Giant Gummy bear! That thing was 5 lbs and 12,600 calories! haha-how can I follow a present like that!? (btw it took him about a week to finish it)For his birthday, Dustin wanted to go to "Monster Jam" It was actually pretty cool, just really loud. We ate at Olive Garden beforehand.
Happy Birthday Babe!
