Cookies and a Hole-in-One

For Family Home Evening tonight, Todd and I decorated sugar cookies with candy and cream cheese frosting. Here are some pictures. P.S. They tasted great!!

Can you tell which ones are Todd's and which ones are mine?

We also had such a great weekend. Friday night we went over to Braden and Kari's for chili and pumpkin pie. Then we went to Trafalga to play mini golf, arcade games, and eat dip & dots. During mini golf, Todd somehow managed to get a hole-in-one. We all would not have believed it if we had not seen it with our own eyes. Somehow he managed to hit his ball against the side which caused it to hit the other side making it ricochet off of a jagged rock into the hole. I call it luck, he calls it talent. Braden also had some amazing hole-in-one experiences while Kari and I, well we enjoyed the game :) We ended the night with some great rock band playing till 1:30am and we got 5 stars, yes all of us are good - of course I play on easy... Anyways, here are some pictures!

Saturday night my cousins Steph and Anthony cooked a delicious meal and all the cousins came. She followed dinner up with amazing angel food cake topped with chocolate mousse and raspberries. We all ate and watched the Bears game...poor Bears. Wish I would have taken some pictures. I love Ben, he is so so so cute!!! I just love babies!

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I Wanna Take You

I miss Aruba!!! The cold Utah weather has finally begun and I cannot say that I am pleased. I love warm summer nights and already miss them. The cold weather only has one bonus: I get to wear my boots all the time. Yes I know, Im obsessed.

Here are some pictures from our honeymoon in Aruba.

Signs You're a Bad Cook

This Picture. ENOUGH SAID.

After I graduated with a double major in making people beautiful I sat down with Todd and together we picked out some new recipes that we wanted to try. New dinners, cookies, and other desserts. I would have to say that overall I have done a pretty good job. Since then I have made red enchiladas, cheesy parmesan chicken, yummy pumpkin cookies, good teriyaki chicken, chocolate chip cookies from scratch, and great tortilla soup. I was on an amazing "cooking delicious things" streak, until today. Here is my first attempt at making Banana Nut Bread. If you didn't realize that this was a picture of banana nut bread...I understand; However, I will say that it surprisingly tasted good. It seems a little on the sweet side so my only guess is that I lost count of how many cups of sugar I added. Lessoned learned.
