Nickelcade Night

We had  "nickelcade night" with our friends, Jaelan and Leslie. I was pleasanlty surprised at how much fun we had! It was a blast. Between Jaelan and John riding in a semi together and Leslie and I horseback riding, we got quite the workout. We also rode a jet ski and went canoeing.. all in one night... haha.Anyway, I'm all for having another nickelcade night soon!

We went sledding with some friends over the holiday weekend. The hill was a bit icy.. but it was still fun! I'm glad we went.

Fondue Night

We had a fondue night with our friends from the ward the other night. It was really fun! There was cheese, broth, and chocolate.. and by the end of the night, we were all stuffed! I never knew how many different fondue dips there are or how many THINGS to dip in fondue there are!

Cleaning Out CLosets is fun to do to do to do

This week, John and I were cleaning out our closet in the spare bedroom because my little sister is coming to live with us for a few months. While going through all the junk, I found this beauty deep in the closet. It's a hat from Russia/Ukraine.. that John bought on his mission. Pretty funny! John told me I would make a good Russian woman.. I'l take it as a compliment.. even though I'm not sure I should.

New York, NY!

So.. on our way out of Maine, we went on a little 3-day trip to New York to see my good friend get married and to hit up a broadway show or two. It was realy fun.. but FREEZING there.. I told John we'll have to go back in the spring or summer sometime. I have always loved New York.. I'm not sure I could ever live there, but I sure do love visiting there. It's just such a happenin' place and it kind of gives me a thrill! John and I went to the Ellen Stardust singing diner, saw the statue of liberty, took a ferry to Staton Island, saw Phantom of the Opera (it was amazing), walked across the brooklyn bridge (insanely cold), and went to my friend Adam's wedding (so glad I got to go). It was fun. Needless to say, we are done with traveling for the time being. We've had our fill... at least for now, that is.

Christmas in Maine

Christmas in Maine was AWESOME! We spent Christmas eve at my grandpa's house, Christmas day at my family's house and Nana's house. All the aunts, uncles, and cousins on my mom's side came. It was great to see everyone. We also went ice skating, tubing, laser tagging, ate baked beans at nana's.. and we went to the ward New Years party. John played cribbage with two other guys named John.. pretty funny.

Gingerbread Houses

I got together with some friends to do gingerbread houses. It was a blast! We got Christmas socks, made a huge mess, and ate a nice dinner. On the way home, my roof kept falling off. It was fun times and I'm pretty sure my house was the messiest.. haha
