Now that christmas was almost a whole month ago I guess I can write about it. For my mom and dads christmas present us kids gave them a family kid picture. All of us somehow managed to get together on really short notice and take pictures. A miracle. Kristi had a friend from her ward that was willing to take them for us! Such a nice lady and AWESOME photography! The weather was frickin FREEZING! But we managed and it was fun!
Here is the ALL kids and families.
Sibling picture. Brent is so much taller. Crazy.

We stream netflix from our Wii. We signed up for the free one month trial but I have a feeling Netflix is not leaving our house anytime soon. I told Rillz Netflix is the FIRST thing to GO if we start neglected the house and other responsibilities because of the tv. But this week it seems like our house is cleaner and more gets done than in the last month.
Rillz and I are just LOVING the easy streaming of netflix though. Just browse and click and BAM in seconds your watching what you just selected. There are so many great options. We are really into the documentaries about anything. The only thing negative is that there aren't that many options for NEW movies. We don't care. Netflix still has a great selection of movies, tv shows, special documentaries. It's going to totally be worth the $8 a month! I figured thats about how much we started spending on Redbox movies anyway to pass the time. I am still way to cheap for cable so I guess this is the next best thing!

So the type of movies I love to watch are typically indie films that are only seen in little theaters. I just LOVE those type!
But my secret indulgence... the Step Up movies. Yes, a little embarresing to admit. When Rillz moved in his movie collection was combined with mine. His were MUCH different than mine. His were chick flicks/older movies/just more well known. Well for whatever reason I watched the first Step Up. Kinda laughing about the fact that I was really going to watch some lame movie. Just so happens I didn't even want to blink just in case I missed something. I loved it. And I now love the 2 and 3 ones too. I have watched the 1st and 2nd one I don't know how many times. Friday night Rillz and I rented the 3rd one and enjoyed it as well. Very unlike me to even watch a movie like this but unexpected things happen every day! Now you know my secret!

Saturday night my boss' took Rillz and I out for a very fancy dinner. Rillz and I got all dressed up. I wish I took pictures but forgot. They took us to Chandlers. They were great company and we really enjoyed and appreciated the whole experiance!

Today I had T.G.I. Fridays buffalo mozzarella sticks. They were on sale for cheap so I thought I would try them. I was reading the conventional oven directions and couldn't believe it...
I tried to get a better picture but couldn't. Anyways, the instructions are normal until the last thing. It reads verbatim: "Allow cheese sticks to stand for a couple of minutes b4 digging in!"
YES, it has b4 instead of "before". I was shocked. I knew this texting lingo would someday show up on products but so soon? Seems very unprofessional and ridiculous. I hate when people text those kind of things to others but to put it in instructions on a food box. Oh boy. My kids aren't going to know how to spell properly.
