Utah Power Credit Union's Annual Meeting 2019

On Tuesday, February 19, Utah Power Credit Union held their annual meeting at the Mountain America Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah. Andrew has to be there since it's a work function and I love going to support him. :)

All 58 employees of UPCU!

As each member came in to the meeting at the beginning, they were given an envelope. At the end, we were instructed to open them. Each person's envelope contained at least a $2 bill, but some held more than that! Andrew and I each got a $2 bill. :) The gift this year was a really cool UPCU pouch with 3 different pockets. I've been trying to think of all the neat ways I can use it. It was such a fun night! I was so proud of my hubby and the company he works for.

Happy Valentine's Day!

My boss brought me my favorite drink and a sugar cookie from Beachin' for Valentine's Day!

Andrew had a gorgeous arrangement and fudge raspberry cups delivered to me at work on Valentine's Day! Along with the balloon and wood conversation heart too, I just loved it!

The cafeteria at work served pink sugar cookies. Yum!

Since I have to be at work super early on Thursdays, Andrew and I did some presents after work too. He also got me this adorable glass tea cup filled with raspberry fudge with a fudge-dipped strawberry on top. It was so cute and delicious!

I got Andrew a cardigan sweater that he wanted for church along with a card and his favorite Reese's Hearts!

Thursday night it was snowing so hard at home so we opted for a heart-shaped dinner instead of going out.

This picture is of our front porch. We have gotten over a foot of snow in the last 2 weeks! I liked how my solar light still came on though under the snow!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Merry Christmas 2018!

Christmas Eve! 

Cecil got a Salmon Kitty Kick Fish Stix and immediately fell on her side to start kicking it. Too funny!

Amber got a Star Wars toy and a pig ear. She had the pig ear eaten in no time flat!

Once again, Andrew had an ice fishing Christmas including a new sled to pull his gear on the ice, some new gear keepers, new ice fishing rods and reels and gift cards to several different sporting goods stores. He also got cheese and summer sausage shipped to him straight from his favorite cheese shop in Wisconsin, Tim & Tom's Cheese Shop in Kenosha, along with some gift cards to some fun restaurants. :)

I got a mixture of my favorite things again including car wash tokens, movie tickets, a gift card for drink refills in my cup at Beachin' Soda Shack, gift certificates to some of my favorite restaurants, the new Richard Paul Evans book, the peach perfume I used to wear in high school (Andrew loves the smell of this as do I. It's no longer made, but Andrew found some on eBay for me circa 1995! It's brand new and smells fantastic!), Sara Happ's Dream Slip for soft lips overnight and a Toyota owners manual case. But some of my favorite gifts are the Creative Lettering Journal with tracing paper and markers so I can learn lettering and earrings handmade in Alaska from my SIL Kim!

We were very blessed once again this year! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card 2018

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

Christmas Trees 2018

Here they are...our Christmas trees 2018!

Our travel tree.
This year Andrew had the idea to put this tree in the corner of our living room instead of in front of the window and I love it! Now we don't have to move the love seat out of the room either. ;)

This is Cecil's favorite part about Christmas. She is always under this tree! She always has one of her toys under there with her too. ;) When we had a real tree, she used the tree stand filled with water as her December water bowl and loved it! This year, now that we have an artificial tree, I decided to just put a bowl of water back there in the corner and she was in heaven! She keeps us laughing!

Our memories tree.

Outside Christmas Lights 2018

This year we added a third light projector since our house is so long! Our lights actually look better in person though. For some reason, when I take a picture of them, they don't seem as bright, but we really like using light projectors for our Christmas lights along with our lighted door wreath. :) They're so easy!
