weekend in st. george

so i had a blast this weekend, it was short but well worth drive. Tiff,Ty and braden and my whole bunch loaded up in tiffs eight person vehicle and head down to st geroge for the weekend. after battling rough winter conditions we made it to sunny but still freezing st. george. all my siblings were there which made it so awesome, plus my dads girl friend tami is amazing,and papa gotta see his mav. Ty, Mav and if you could'nt tell all cut our hair, thank you Tami. My dad and Tami gave us great gifts for christmas and i love everything thank you so much. I love you guys and i miss you already. i can't wait till were all together again.

meeting santa

Mav saw santa today at day care and as you can see he was really scared of him along with the rest of the class. It was way fun that morning when santa came. Santa got mav a train and a book, he loves his presents!!!

I love Snow!!

so it snowed most of day and of course maverick wanted to run around in it, so we got bundled up and went out. of course i brought my camera along because i love taking pictures. he lasted about ten minutes and then realized how cold it was ( about 22 degrees) and wanted to go inside. Here is a collage I made of mav playing in the snow today!!

Ginger Bread house night!!

This was mav eating our house decor!! :)

Aren't they soooo freaking cute, they are the best of friends, they follow each other everywhere!!!

Here are the Gardner men doing what they do best, not hanging out with the women and being big tough men ugh !!! haha :)

What a cute family( and look and that amazing master piece)

I love this picture of are crazy bunch, we used the timer on my camera and they turned out great!!! Love you guys i hope we can do this every year. Merry Christmas everyone

This was a way fun night i have to give Jayline and Deana credit for it, we had a Ginger bread contest. We got as many as the gardners that could make. It was a total bummer that Dj and cami and the girls couldn't make it but a bug snow storm was coming in. We all bought kits to help with ideas, these houses were not very yummy, of course savannah & maverick thought so , they ate frosting and candy all night. :). Here are some of the funny pics from tonight.

First Snow of the season!!!

so the snow finally fell last night and maverick was so excited to see it. all he wanted to do was play in it and eat it. so this morning we got bundled up and went outside to grab him some snow to eat and headed over to tiff's for breakfast. I can't wait for more snow to fall. hope everyone else enjoys the snow as well.

my Twilight review!!

well first of i had to put a picture of the cast up. and first i give the movie 4 stars. it was soooo good. it was good with following the book, i just dont like how they switched it around a little bit it was also really fast paced and it really didnt focus on the bella and edwards relationship as much as i thought it would have, i had to explain some scenes to my sister because she hadnt read the book so it was a little confusing to her in parts. but still is was good. I thought most of the guy actors were freaking hot. Edward, emmett and james were the top ones :). I can't wait to see the next movies. I can't wait to hear what everone else thinks.

Twilight movie oh yah!!

so get this my sister tiffany who by the way is freaking amazing, got tickets for me and her to go see twilight friday( which is tomorrow) at 2:00. OMG i am soooo excited and way nervous at the same time, i hope its so good, wait it better be so good!!! I hope all you twilight fans go see the flick and let me know what you think. I LOVE TWILIGHT!!! i will be posting my review later ha ha
