Male Bonding

Christmas was very fun this year.  Stephanie and I got to spend time with both of our families and it has been very cool having her family in town and Jessica and her fam staying with us.  My dad was very nice and bought me a .38 for my Christmas present this year.  I was extremely excited to say the least.  We decided it would be fun to go out and try it out and do some target shooting.  Me, Isaac, my dad, Isaias, our friend Sunny all went out Friday morning and we met my Uncle Mario and Paul Peralta at Sycamore Creek.  We took some pistols, rifles, and a shotgun.  Sunny had never been shooting before and had a blast.  I loved shooting the .38 and enjoyed the time to do a little male-bonding!  I'm excited to take Stephanie out next time and be wowed with her shooting prowess!  Here are a few pics from the day..

Where did it go???

So I was about to write a fun blog about some of the festivities we have been having in celebration of Christmas... So I got on to my G-mail and pulled up a picture I was planning on looking at. I accidently pushed a button and the e-mail disappeared. I can't find it anywhere!!! Not archived, put in spam or in the trash. AAARGH! I don't know where it is! So to come on this blog are a couple really cool things once I find the e-mail that vanished!

5 Fun Things That Happened In October and November.

#1. Israel and I decorated a really cool Halloween house. We started mixing the frosting... I put too much water in it so it was a bit runny. But I guess it still turned out well. I did the frosting and Israel put the candies on.

#2. I was making strawberry pancakes for breakfast the other day. I like to put the cooked pancakes into a tupperware so I can keep them covered and really warm... I like the butter to melt when I put it on... So I was doing that just like I always do. I guess I accidently turned on one of the burners that I wasn't using, and that's where I set the tupperware. I kept placing pancakes in it and wondering what the burning smell was... Melting plastic.

#3. One of my co-workers, Amanda, left her daughters underwear in my car. I guess good prepared mothers carry extra underwear and other things with them just in case. I've also on another occasion seen Amanda pull a spatula out of her purse @ work.

#4. I went to the cannery. Israel and I have been working on our year supply. He went last month and I went this month. It feels good to be prepared!

#5. Brittany, Hilaree and I ran/walked the Turkey Trot. I am way out of shape... but I decided that I just needed to do it! So we went and did really bad at it. But we finished! Brittany is tough and could have gotten a real good time, but being the good friend she is she hung with Hilaree and I. It was fun. My foot still hurts a week later!

Blame the beard!!!

So I made the Easter Pageant and I am very excited!  I will be a Shepherd, in the Multitude, and in the Mob (must be the beard right!?!).  It is a HUGE time commitment with the 18 credits I will be taking and working 4 jobs, so I am thanking my wonderful, understanding wife ahead of time for her patience with me during this process.  So even though it is a bit early I'd love you all to come see the Easter Pageant in the Spring!  Details to follow.
