New pictures

O.K. so I tried to update things a bit but ran into some serious technical difficulties. I scanned the picture because I thought that it would be easy- not so much! Never mind that I scanned it off of a card which was already a copy. So the picture isn't that great but I will fix it later with the real picture and not a scan:)

Christmas candy

Yesterday the Lyman girls all got together and made Christmas candy! It was lots of fun! We wanted to make some of my Moms candy but the only thing we could do was the Carmel's-because it was such a cloudy day. Instead we pretty much tried some new recipes. We made Mint truffles(recipe compliments of Kandice) which turned out so yummy-but tucked away in a safe place until the Christmas party. We also did the dipped pretzels and Almond Joys. We had tons of fun making candy but mostly just being together!!

Christmas Tree Hunting!!

To everyone wondering why I'm such a slacker lately with the whole blogging thing-SORRY! My camera is on the blitz and I don't have that many pictures to post. I'm looking at cameras and hopefully I'll be once again a blogging maniac. Here's a little update- We had a wonderful Thanksgiving we had dinner at Brandon's parents house and did the usual turkey, crafts and fun! Brandon's Grandpa came down and his Aunt Jennae and Uncle Ray and their family. It was lots of fun. I also had my first official lesson on making Grandma Nelsons dipped chocolates. It was a lot of fun and hopefully we'll continue the tradition and I can pass it on down to my kids.Laine and Havie are "BEST FRIENDS" Laine had a sleep over with "Her Girls" as she calls them. I'm so glad she has girl cousins to play with because there aren't any girls her age here!
Brandon leading the gang all around the mountain to find the perfect tree.

At last we finally find the "Perfect Tree" We found Bryan and Greg's trees really fast but we had to search a little longer to find our tree! It was a group effort but we finally found it- and it really is a pretty perfect tree!
