Teaching License

Yeah! after two and half years I finally am officially certified with my Teaching license in the state of Utah.

Girls Night Out

Brynn and I had a girls night out with some of my fellow polevault girlfriends, Trisha and Traci. We had some fun eating dinner and catching up with what is going on with each other. Trisha just had a very cute baby named Reese in November, and I am kicking myself for not getting pictures of her. Well next month I will have to get some pictures. Traci is busy going to Medical School at the U. Sometimes we think she is crazy to do all that school, but really we are just jealous of her accomplishments. I love you girls!

Tag, Your It!

I was tagged from Emily and here are the rules:
1. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names.
So here it goes I hope you don't get bored.

1. I really don't like chocolate, I will eat it sometimes, but if there is a choice of fruit candy or vanilla icecream I will take that any day over chocolate, I don't know where that came from because both my parents love chocolate, but luckily I married someone just like me.

2. I love playing any kind of sport. I have played basketball in highschool, I also ran track in highschool and I did polevault and track in college and I loved doing both, but I secretly would have loved to be a professional beach volleyball player. How would that be to have a job where you have an awesome body and and you get to play on the beach all day in the sun. Too bad I am not a few inches taller.

3. I have fainted three times in my life and two of those times was at school. How embarassing! One time in seventh grade I hit my funny bone on my locker and it hurt so bad that I fainted. I had a bump on my head, and luckily I got to go home. Rumors flew that I got a concussion and had to go to the hospital, not true.
The other time I was a senior in highschool and I was walking out of a door and somehow bent my finger a weird way and it hurt really bad. Then the next thing I know I am lying on the pavement outside and someone is bringing a wheelchair. Luckily it wasn't in between classes so there wasn't much walking traffic, but enough people saw and it was so embarassing.

4. I love to play games/sports, board games, card games etc., but I am very COMPETITIVE, ask Doug and Christopher. So just warning you if you ever play with me, I hate to lose!

5. My favorite treat is a maple bar donunt.

6. There are so many places that I wish to see someday here are a few; France, New York City, Boston, Austrailia, Hawaii, Iceland, Wales, Yucatan Peninsula (Mayan temples), Peru (Manchu Picchu), and it would be fun to pick up Logan in Rio De Janerio.

I hope that wasn't too boring. I was always the best at tag in elementary school so now I am going to tag Katie, Aubry Startin, Aubrie Spence, Alicia, Mckenna, Robyn and Kallee you send it in an email, You really need to start a blog. I would do Brynn, but Emily already tagged her. I hope I am not leaving anyone out. If I am I tag you too.

Fun In The Sun!

We had so much fun on our trip to Mazatlan Mexico. We stayed at the Mayan Sea Gardens resort. It was a relaxing vacation were we just went to the beach everyday swam, ate, slept, played games, read books and just relaxed. From the pictures you can tell we spent a lot of time at the beach.

Casey and Doug are out body surfing. I went out a few times as well it was my first time, it was really fun body surfing.

Braxton being buried.

and again.

Gavin and Braxton like to play in the sand.

Braxton liked the airplane ride. On our way down we had a stop in L.A. before we headed down to Mazatlan, he was good, but I was glad we had a direct flight home.

Happy New Year's

We had our annual New Year's Eve party at our house. We had some good food and played some games. Braxton had fun taking pictures of us. He actually did a pretty good job!

He was up all night.

Spence Family Christmas Party

We had our Spence Family Christmas Party at my Grandma's house in Tooele after Christmas. We did a gift exchange and this year we did food storage. Macaroni and Cheese, Raman Noodles and Steven's hot chocolate were the big items. It was fun to get together. Braxton and Damon had fun playing in the snow. Tooele always gets so much more snow than we do. When we were little my Mom would call it the North Pole, so I thought my Grandma lived in the North Pole.

Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year, except Braxton was very sick on Christmas. He didn't even want to open some of his presents. He did love his present from Santa, his jeep. He played with his other toys while sitting in his jeep. We had a good time with my Family opening presents and talking to Logan (only 6 months to go Yeah!). We also had a fun time with Doug's family in the Evening. It was a great Christmas Season and hope that all of you had a Merry Christmas!

Braxton loves his jeep from Santa.

Mom and Dad are having a great time talking to Logan. It was so good to hear his voice.

Sick Baby.

Kylie's cute little Christmas outfit.

Braxton is so sick he wants Mom to open his presents.

Gavin loved the wrapping paper.

McDougan Christmas Party

We had our annual McDougan Christmas party the Saturday before Christmas at Andrew and Kristine's house. We had a lot of fun eating, talking, watching the BYU football game, playing foosball and doing our gift exchange.

JD got some fun fake teeth.
Joe won the barbie.

Andrew was so lucky he won the lovely Christmas sweater vest.

Gavin looks like he has had a little too much to drink.

Doug and Brielle are taking a little snooze.

It was fun to have Jonny T. here from Arizona.

Everybody is intensely watching the BYU football game.
