Rafe loves Gin-gi from Shrek as well as all of the other characters and I love gingerbread men and have since I was a little girl so I thought it only appropriate to make them and decorate them together. Rafe did a great job helping Mom decorate them and then would immediately lick their faces off and eat them. We had so much fun together making our Gin-gi's. And the cutest part was Rafe in one of my aprons. So stinkin cute!

Catching up...

Since my last entry Rafe and I took a trip to Utah in November. For my Birthday this year, my La (aka Mom) bought me a VIP ticket to the Red Carpet Premier of "TWILIGHT"!! We went to the Preshow party at 9:00pm on Nov. 20th. It was a formal event and it was a BLAST!! They had a live DJ, dancing, drawings for prizes, a buffet, and a red choc. fountain and treats. At 11:00pm we lined up and got our gift bags and headed down to our theater where we walked through a mob of fellow Twilight fans waiting to get into their theater. They gave us free refreshments and once we were seated they open our theater up to the general public. We had so much fun and the movie was FANTASTIC!! Ryan joined us in Utah for Thanksgiving on the Tuesday before and we were so happy to be with him. We had a great time with family and friends.

Dec. 7th.....Today is my birthday and it was a good day. We went to church and then Ryan had his Military Symposium from 1-5 and then a dinner at 6pm, which I went to with him. Dr. Lt. Andy Baldwin of the US. Navy was a guest speaker and a guest at the dinner. Now for those of you that don't know, he was a Bachelor a few years ago on the Reality show, "The Bachelor". I was excited to meet him because I watched his journey to find love. He is a very genuin down to earth guy and has great passion for the humanitarian work that he does. Ryan got to meet him and talk to him for a little bit and we were able to get a picture with him. He is a very nice guy. So that's all for now. Oh and there's a picture of our new condo family room all decorated for Christmas. Will post more pictures of our condo soon.
