Pictures Galore and FHE

Katie is in the back of my mom’s car asleep after a hard day of shopping and a snack of chex mix

we look like we’re in an expressionist painting. Left to right, Scott, Me, Katie (I’m holding her) Jam Jam, Lorna, and Midori. 🙂 It was FREEZING but we all wanted to see the lights anyway.  We had quite a bit of fun, except for when the annoying High School kids were singing songs that weren’t spiritual Christmas songs. IMO– I don’t want to hear rudolph the red nosed reindeer after coming off the emotional high of having my daughter watch the nativity story for the first time. Thanks a lot HIGH SCHOOL KIDS!!

Katie was nervous about being on the edge, but was having fun anyway. Midori was holding onto her, I hope Jam jam doesn’t mind, I cropped him out of the picture because of his expression, LOL.

This is by the reflecting pool downtown. I love this pool, it does GREAT pictures.

We tried to get Katie to look at the camera, but it didn’t work!!

The rest of the pictures are just me trying to be “artistic” or as artistic as you can be with a camera in your phone. they aren’t PERFECT, but hey, camera phone!

This was taken ON the reflecting pool, which is to say the image you’re seeing is the temple on the pool. You can actually see in the lower right hand corner the lights they float on the pool during winter. I looooooooove this picture.

This year they had a nativity on the pool in addition to the nativity they have next to the north visitor’s center. Really I think it’s great. I love nativities. This one was gorgeous. I wish I could take better pictures of it…. but I hope this at least inspires people in utah to go and see it!

More Nativity, I didn’t get any of this head on, but it was beautiful.

Beautiful! Don’t let my shotty camera work fool you, it’s crazy beautiful up there!

We had a very nice monday night, we actually started it off with dinner at Wendy’s. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it but Wendy’s is the MOST yummy place ever. Seriously I love Wendy’s the most when PG. I have this thing about Mayo when pregnant. I love it. I would probably (don’t read this jen!) eat a mayo sandwich and be giddy about it.

Scott is ok, I didn’t realize people paid such attention to my facebook status. He was awake in the basement when i woke up at 7, but when i finally rolled out of bed for good at 8, he was not at home. This made me a bit worried, but like a cat that gets out of the house, I figured he’d return. 🙂 He got me a hot chocolate (yay!) and himself a soda.  He’s ok! I should have updated my facebook and not made my family worry, but he took the laptop to review the news and such (which is ironic as we were also WATCHING the news…

Anyway… Scott is ok. I caught HIMYM this morning as our DVR recorded it on the Analog station and the picture was crappy– so we had to download it. I need to re-watch Big Bang theory as I was cleaning/came home late as it was on. I didn’t cook last night as we did FHE with Lorna. We went (as Scott and I had planned) to Build a bear and had Katie build a bear … or Cat in this case. It kind of looks like twinkie 😀 LOL, We debated on what sound to put in, She really liked the jingle bell rock, but also she really liked the roar and meow. We went with Meow. We thought about clothes for the Kitty, but decided right now, that we probably better not 🙂  We sat down to name her — and I asked Katie “What do you want to name your friend?” and Katie said “KItty!” and she said it perfect. Scott says I better name her Kitty. So I did. Though to be technical I named her Kittie. 🙂 katie loves it, and hugs and loves on it all the time. She woke up in the middle of the night last night, and was crying (She actually did it several times) and so finally (in an effort to refuse baby sleeping in bed with us, it’s nigh to impossible to sleep.) I gave her the toy rocked her a bit, and then laid her down in her bed, and turned her sleeping music back on. she woke up and cried a bit more, but I just closed my door and let her cry, I need SLEEP.

It was a good night, and a suprisingly excellent morning. I was shocked to see The Specialist calling me, because we call each other about as often as… well.. As often as you see penguins hanging out with Polar Bears. But apparently mom called him worrying about Scott’s wellbeing… and he called me on my way to work. I wouldn’t have noticed except the fact that I was digging for my badge when my bag started to vibrate! Thanks for worrying. It’s nice to know people have my back 😉
