Santa comes to visit the house on Christmas Eve and gives us all a little gift so here's Wes sitting on Santa's knee!!
Wes and I were worried about how Mitzy would do just roaming free at my parents house because they don't have a fence or anything, but she did great!! My parents used to have a dog and she would always lay right here in the garage so Mitzy just filled her spot over the holidays!!

We've missed Emy and Trevor's family so far, but they are coming the 29th, I can't wait. We had a great Christmas morning, it's nice to have kids young enough that they don't wake up and want to open presents at 4am!! We opened presents around 8am and then had a wonderful breakfast. Then had a relaxing day and ate the Salmon Wes caught for dinner that night, blackened Salmon Caesar salad, it was outstanding!!
Wes caught his first Salmon on Christmas Eve!! Last night he organized a trip with Carson and a family friend, and was so excited about it he couldn't sleep!! They woke up at 4:30 am and got home around 3:30pm!! He had quite a day but he was literally like a kid on Christmas morning!! He also got to open one of his Christmas presents early, my parents got him a sweet Cutco fillet knife that he got to use after catching his Salmon!!!
Wes and I love this Mexican Restaurant in Utah called Cafe Rio where they have this awesome sweet pork salad. So yesterday I found a copycat recipe for the salad on a blog and made it myself. I used a dressing recipe that I already had, but I used the beans, rice and pulled pork recipes. Everything turned out awesome, surely the best meal I've ever made!!! I was really proud of myself because usually Wes makes the great meals in our house!! The link to the website I used is the Favorite Family Recipes just type in Cafe Rio in the search bar and you'll find it!
This is my way of journaling because i've never been good at writing things down! Don't worry I don't get too personal! I'm married to Wesley who is currently in school (and obsessed with fishing) and I'm an RN on the labor and delivery floor in Spokane WA. We had a new addition to our little family on 5/18/11 Oliver Perez and we love him more than anything in the world!!!
