You Can't Make This Stuff Up

This is the funniest conversation I have had in a LONG time. This is why I love being married.

As I am sitting at the computer, and Gideon is in the family room. We have both been quiet for a while, each doing our own thing. Suddenly. . .

Gideon: "Katie."


Gideon: "What's another word for your eggs?"

Katie: "What?"

Gideon: "You know, your eggs."

Katie, in between giggles: "My eggs??"

Gideon, still serious and not understanding why I can't grasp this: "inside of you. Is it your ova? Ovi? Ovee?"

Katie, still laughing hysterically: "I have no idea. They come from your ovaries."

Gideon: "I think it's ova. I've heard it before."

He was doing a crossword puzzle.
And I'm still laughing.

A Sunday Thought

I watch this video every Sunday. Somehow it always makes me cry. I love it.

Sugar Cookies . . .

I really want a kitchen aid.
But they were good and people ate them.

Why is this so hard? Every time I try to cook or bake something, it starts out like this

and it usually ends like this

Grated my fingers. Twice. I'm pretty sure there was some flesh in my cheesy potatoes. Which, by the way, didn't even turn out.

While baking a cake I somehow hit my head on the counter.
And yes, that's mascara smeared all over my face from crying because my head hurt so bad.
I mean who knew that baking a cake could land you a huge goose egg and a headache for two days?

Our Thanksgiving Adventure

Our Thanksgiving was so great this year!! First of all, our first one TOGETHER. That in itself was awesome. BUT. In addition. . . we had Naomi and Colin's wedding the 24th in Mesa, so we headed down a little early. We stopped in Vegas for a night with the Medley clan. It was so fun! Gideon had never been, so I made sure to show him a good time. Then we all headed to Mesa, and celebrated the wedding with tons of food and family. We thought of it as a way to stretch the belly before thanksgiving. Gideon and I stayed with my parents and after the wedding, the Medley family stopped by for breakfast and some singing, much to Adam's delight. It was so much fun to have both of our families together. So much love! Then to finish off the weekend, a big thanksgiving feast. It was great. We had such a great time with my family too. My parents took us out to dinner and a movie, we swam, watched movies, and slept in. Gideon and I were so sad to come home; we forgot how nice it is to have someone else pay for stuff and not have to worry about anything! Overall the trip was SO MUCH FUN. It was good to see our families and it was nice to be so full! We both gained a couple pounds. And by WE I mean ME. Let's face it people. Gideon? Gain holiday weight? I don't think so. So in + family+tons of sleep + road trip = tons of fun. Happy holidays everybody!

Sorry about all the pics, but here's a little photo tour of our trip.

My foreign boy I found! What a cute one!

The REAL Eiffle Tower. Really.

This year, we are thankful that we have heads.

Watching the Bellagio fountain show. My favorite!

The happy couple. So cute!

The crew at the reception.

I thought this a fitting picture of my husband. We counted 4, yes 4 trips to the food table. That's my man. He even ate the decorative brussel sprouts. raw. yep.

The family's newest up-and-coming photographer. Love ya hannah!

I finally found a good use for all my old high school dance dresses! The girls loved them and they looked GORGEOUS in them too.

Lots of people in a little space.

The beautiful turkey. Nice job mom!

I made a pie!!! And it was good! Take note Naomi. I've improved!

The final product. It was a beautiful thanksgiving. Thanks Mom and Dad!
