"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

Tis the season! (to be busy)

Holy Cow! Is it really half way through December already! I can't even believe it, I've looked forward to this month for so long and I feel like I haven't even got to enjoy it yet! Well I mean I have enjoyed it but it has just gone by way to fast!
We don't have to much exciting going on besides that life is flying by! Robbie finished up school for the semester so now we will have a few weeks until we are both in school and working full time! Its going to be an adventure!
I got to go see Heather last weekend and how I wish I could have stayed the whole week, or month! It was so much fun getting to see her again and catch up.. and by catch up I do mean eat more than necessary and spend more money on home decor than one human being needs! But it sure was fun! I have learned so much in the past few years but I really think the most important thing has been that to have such great friends like her its truly a heaven sent blessing! We were having to much fun to take pictures so we got the one below just as she was dropping me off to meet Rob.
And the following pictures of how I spent my day today! I love cooking, it is very theraputic for me. No lie I literally had a cheesy smile on my face the whole day, singing along to CMT and dancing around in the kitchen getting flour and powder sugar everywhere! (Im glad no one got a glimps of that!)

Usually when I bake I take out on ingredient at a time, scoop whats needed and put it away before I get the next one just so I don't have a mess... but NOT today! I just went crazy! My little kitchen was cluttered and DiRtY!
My sink was over flowing!! And I was hoping Robbie would get home from work and offer to do them for me.. BUT that didn't happen!

Then the finished product! (and no thats not all I made in 6 hours!) We had about 6 plates full that looked like this!
There is a bundt cake with a cream cheese and chocolate chip filling (thank you sister lunt for the recipe!) Then we have oreo truffles - YUM, pumpkin rolls, and banana bread!

What a day! A great day! Anyway - Our house is all decorated but I didn't take any pictures! And our tree this year is awesome. I love it, but I can't get a good picture. It just looks lame on my camera! Guess ya'll will have to come over and see it and for heavens sake - eat some treats while your here!!

Happy Holidays all you bloggin' buddies! Bring on the new year!
