New Years!

We had New Years at our house this year. We had my family over for a big Mexican dinner and dessert, which was made by me. I finally got my cake decorating kit out and made a chocolate cake with fresh glazed strawberry filling and chocolate frosting. It turned out fairly well, but tasted MUCH better than it looked!!!

Then we watched Inception together, which is a really weird movie, and Mattie and I were actually able to stay up until midnight this year! So we celebrated with even more sparkling cider. LOL!! :)


This year we had Christmas at my parents house. We slept at our house Christmas Eve (as the couch at my parents didn't sound like much fun) and were over to the house at 7:00 to open presents.

We started out with our gifts from Santa. I got some lotions and potions from B & B Works and some fuzzy socks. Matt got some True Religion cologne, and Macy got a bathtub and hooded towel.

Then we went over to the presents under the tree and spent the next two and a half hours opening up the rest of our gifts. Then it was off to watch Christmas movies and take naps. What a wonderful day!! :)

My swag.

Annabelle wanted to play Santa.

October 31, 2010 - My parents got back from Vermont today, after a week with the new grandbaby, so we had our big annual Halloween dinner! We decorated the place to the hilt, and dragged Grandma over to the house and had a big dinner and dessert, then all went downstairs to watch scary movies (since none of us are into trick-or-treating anymore. LOL!!)

5 Month Ultrasound! What are we having?

Jen's Birthday!

July 8, 2010 - Today is my 26th birthday! Unfortunately, it started out like every other day. I had to get up and go to work, which is never fun, but someone's got to do it. LOL!

So after a long day of work, Mattie took me out to the mall where I got a fabulous pedicure, and tips put on my toes. We then went over to my parents house for dinner and presents. I got lots of clothes, an ice cream maker, and a work-out bike!

It was a great day, and later on we found out a little surprise....Matt and I are going to be parents!!! It was a little bit of a surprise, but I can't think of a better gift!!!


We finally got moved in and settled into our NEW HOUSE!!! So, we decided we'd celebrate Easter at our place this year. We had my whole family over, and Lindsay's new boyfriend, Tay to dye Easter Eggs Saturday night. Which actually turned out to be really fun because Tay had never dyed eggs before, or eaten a Peep, or even celebrated Easter.

Matt had me up at the crack of dawn Sunday morning because he just couldn't stand to wait any longer to see what the Easter Bunny had brought him. So, we started our Easter at 6:00, and after eating a bunch of candy out of our baskets, made a big breakfast, and then I started cooking our big Easter dinner.

It was so nice to have everyone over (and to actually have room to put everyone. LOL!) But we had a nice dinner, played games, and stuffed ourselves with Peeps for the rest of the evening. I can't think of a better way to spend a day.
