The best news of all!

So, after all the new information, I thought I'd put at the top of the list...the birth of my newest nephew. Luke Thomas Christensen. He's the first of my sister Kerri and her husband Cade, and he's adorable. I think he looks just like his mom. We're all heading down to Conference, and then to Denver for his blessing, so I can't wait to meet in a little over a week. Congrats you guys! We can't wait to meet him!

So, Heather and Gannon took great care of us while we were in Portland right after California. They fed us like kings, and really pulled out all the stops to make the trip awesome. One night they decided to make some Jack Daniels bbq sauce for the pulled pork they were making (yummmm). Anyway, Michael and Gannon went to get us some Jack Daniels, and when they got home with the tiniest little bottle I've ever seen, we thought it would be funny to see what Nixon made of it. Here he is as the little Jack Daniels spokesperson!
Taking a sip (Of course, the bottle is completely sealed...we're not that horrible)
And another...
Feeing pretty good
After a few too many sips...

We laughed so hard when we saw how the pictures turned out...of course Nixon had no idea what it was, nor did he have a drop, but it's like he knew what faces to make to create such a perfect little story. Funny boy!

Disneyland-It really is the happiest place on earth!

Disneyland 2007
Well I had a week off at the end of February, so Michael and I decided to get away. We set off to California to buy a car, but also to have some fun! And fun we did have. The ultimate highlight of the trip was Disneyland. I don't know what it is about that place, but I honestly feel like I'm 10 again, and I'm so in love with it, I wish we could have stayed for a week, but one did held us over for the next few years. We stayed our first night in a little hotel right across the street from the park, so the next morning we could get right over there. We got to go on just about every ride, eat a huge turkey leg (it was amazing!), meet a bunch of characters, and basically have the best time ever. Just as I predicted, the best ride of the day was the Indiana Jones ride. We loved it. I had told Michael that it was the best, and he wasn't disappointed. We really need to go there again asap!

Universal Studios

Universal Studios 2007
So we also hit up Universal Studios, and we must have picked the perfect day, because it was pretty empty, but that only meant no waiting for us. It was a blast! It wasn't as big as I remember it being when I was there as a kid, but we still had a great time. The Jurassic Park, and Mummy rides were the highlight, and we went on each a few times! The studio tour was also awesome! We got some fun footage of it all, and with Michael's commentary on it all, it really is pretty funny. But, we mus have brought the cold with us because it was FREEZING. Honestly, that happens to me everywhere I go. The cold follows me I swear.


On our way home from Universal, we decided to stop and see some sights. We were driving down Hollywood Blvd, and there were a bunch of people on the sidewalk looking at something, so as we drive past we try to see what it is, and there he is...John Travolta. It was the premiere of Wild Hogs! So, we drove around trying to park as fast as we could, and we got there in time to see John Travolta, and his wife, and we also saw Tim Allen, but not good enough that we could get a picture. But, it was pretty awesome! Then we walking all over looking at the stars, and the sights to see. It was pretty cool to see it all!


A few new changes

Well, we've made some changes around the house lately (and when I say lately, I really mean a long time ago, I just haven't blogged them) and we really like them all! We got the tv for Christmas, and the couches were a hand me down from Kevin and Cyndi, and we are both in love with them. They are so cozy compared to leather, and I was very glad to see the colors all worked out. You can't be picky when you're getting something for free, but it's also an added bonus when it look alright! The computer desk is from Lara and Sean again, and really nice to have. It looks a lot better than what we had before! The other new little area is my vinyl working spot. We got a folding table from Costco, and I got myself all set up with a nice little working station. It's nice to have all of the stuff in the same spot, and be able to come in a work on it whenever I can. Although, it's also nicer to have Heather here working on it with me, but what can ya do?
