Pre-Halloween Fun!

My mom came out and visited for a few days last week!  It was so fun to hang out with her- we did a lot of fun things while she was here.  For example:

carving pumpkins,

making and decorating cookies,


and other things.  I'm excited for Christmas so I can go home and see my whole family again.  And I'll finally get to meet Natalie's future hubby, Chris.  Yay!

In other news, it's snowing.  Don't get me wrong, I love playing in the snow- sledding, making snowmen, even taking walks in the snow is fun.  But I just feel like it's a little early for winter.  What happened to fall?

My dad sent 3 DVDs of video clips of me with my mom.  I've been watching them and thinking about high school (since that's when most of these clips happened).  For the most part, I'm very glad I'm done with high school and all the drama of being a teenager.  But I'm realizing that there are some things I really miss and would love to get back into.  Tennis is one of these things.  There was only one video clip of me playing tennis, but it's something I really miss.  I was on the tennis team for 2 years in high school, but I've been playing for quite a while since my dad and brother both played before, and then my sister and I started playing.  It's one of those things that makes me wish I lived near my family because I could always count on playing tennis with them when I was home for the summers.  Now I just go there when it's cold, so tennis doesn't happen.  And unfortunately, the man I fell in love with doesn't share my love for racquet sports.  I think I need to find a tennis buddy.  Too bad Utah has decided to be winter. Maybe next year.

I'm getting more and more excited for Christmas, Chris is excited to meet you and Aaron. And I'm jealous that Mom flew out to visit you but hasn't been to Bburg since my birthday.....
