Joy to the World!

Dan and I have a wonderful Christmas. We visited my parents down in Kaysville. My brother, Kellen, who lives in Florida was also able to spend the holidays with us. It was great to spend time with the family, eat great food, and take in the holiday season. We spend alot of time in the basement playing ping pong and box hockey.
Although Dan and I were not very good to start with, we got better the more we played. My parents much play ping pong a lot because there were awesome!! Dan and I played them and they beat us within 5 minutes!!

On Christmas Eve my parents took us to the "Body Worlds" exhibit in Salt Lake City.
Kellen was a little apprehensive, the entire exhibit is on the human body. If you haven't heard about it, you should look it up. It was pretty cool.
Christmas Eve my parents did their famous smoked ham and turkey. SO YUMMY!! Kellen thought Mookie felt a little left out so he invited him to the table. Never has a dog been more spoiled.
After dinner Kellen let me and Dan open the gift he bought for us. He had given us the Office DVD Board Game. We spent the rest of the night laughing and having a great time. Although Dan, Kellen, and I have seen EVERY Office episode, Mom won (She has only seen one episode). We think she is the most like Dwight so that is why she got all of the questions right. Here is a picture of our game pieces.
Kellen- Creed, Me- Pam, Dan- Jim, Dad- Toby, and Mom- Dwight (of course!)
The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast. Dan's sister, Becca, had made us some wonderful cinnomon rolls and we ate some more of our Christmas Eve ham. Dan was very thoughtful with the gifts he bought for me. He bought me a pink cover for my phone, a massage, and a Beatles book I have been wanting. I am so lucky to have such a thoughtful husband.
We wanted to take a family picture while we were all together for the holidays, but never got around to it. We has to improvise and use the self timer on the camera to get a picture of us. I don't think it turned out too bad!
Dan had to work the Friday after Christmas so unfortunately we had to leave Christmas night. We had such a great time with my family. I loved being able to see Kellen. I miss him so much now that he lives in Florida. I am lucky that my parents only live a couple of hours away, so we get to see them on a regular basis.
After leaving my parents we had a great time with the Robison's. Becca's fiance came to visit so the whole family was together. We had a great time decorating cookies with the little girls. I made a gingerbread girl to look like Kenzie. The little girls had a great time and we ended up with some really creative cookies!
Becca and Nick joined in on the fun- it so great to see Becca to happy!!
Christina and Jan won the award for the best looking cookies.
All in all we had a great Christmas holiday. We are so thankful for our wonderful families and the time we were able to share with each of them. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and I love him more and more each day.

Hello Hello!!
Well not much has changed in the Robison household. Dan and I have completely moved into our house and really are starting to make it our home. I have this new found obsession with the Beatles (Dan couldn't be happier) so I decided to create a Beatles room in our house. Dan has all these awesome posters and we are going to frame them and put in our new reading room (Pictures soon to come). Dan also convinced me to bring "Beatlemania" to our living room as well. We took one of the nicer photos and put it in a pretty frame.
Now we have nothing on our walls but Ringo, John, George, and Paul- I LOVE IT!
Also new and exciting, I am going to be starting a new job soon. I found a job with an insurance company down in Idaho Falls. I am really excited but I am sad to leave Melaleuca. I have been training my new replacement the past couple of days and I know she will do a great job. I am sad to leave all the friends I have made with such a wonderful company, but I am excited for a new challenge. Dan even mentioned with the new job, he might even buy me a new car- HURRAY!!!!!! So now on my Christmas wish list: a new cell phone, a dishwasher, and a new car.... lets see if he can deliver!! :)
All in all things are going well. We are very excited to announce we are have new Brother-in-law joining the family. Dan's sister, Becca, met this wonderful guy and he proposed just this week! We were able to spend some time with Nick over Thanksgiving and we are overjoyed about him joining the family.
Hope all is well with you-

Here are some pictures of the house.... it's still a work in progress!
My next project- our bedroom!
