Since i love CHRISTMAS i had to start on some Christmas Crafts... here is the first one i have finished. It's an advent calendar made out of a mini muffin tin. All the paper squares have magnets on the back so you just put a little surprise in the muffin tin and then kids... or yourself can pull off the little square for each day. I think it turned out pretty well. Sorry the pictures are crappy, I am terrible with a camera.

My sister Rachel... she is on the right of this picture... had a birthday Saturday. I was going to post this Saturday but got caught up in moving. So Happy Late Birthday RACHEL!!!

10 fun facts/ things i love about her:

3. She lets Nathan and I sleep at her apartment every time we come visit... even when we take up the whole living room.
4. She always compliment me on my crafts... which makes me feel good... even when they probably are not that good.
5. She came up to visit me which i love! and once she even drove all the way up here just to take me to the airport back in Salt Lake.
6. She and Melanie let me sleep in their basement for a semester.
7. She is easy to Christmas shop for because she is happy with anything, it wasn't always this way though.
8. She has always been thinner than me and usually in better shape (i don't know if i am happy for her or maybe a little jealous)

Mini Baja!

Saturday my dad and two sisters came to visit. Luckily that was the same day Nathan and his SAE buddies were taking the mini baja out for a test drive. The goal was to break as many things as possible and find all the weak spots on the car. We all had such a fun time trying to wreck the car... well until Hana decided to actually wreck it. Hana took it off a pretty steep cliff and when she landed the front left axle (i think) broke and that was the end of the joy rides.
I think the best part was how much fun (see picture above) my old dad had driving it. He was better than a little kid in a candy store. What a great way to spend the weekend with my family.
