Toddler’s Dress

Guess what?! We leave for Cincinnati to see my family in five days! This is the longest that I’ve ever gone without seeing them. It’s been over a year. The last time I saw my fourteen-year-old brother he was shorter than me, and apparently he is about six-feet tall. Crazy!

We also are going to visit my new little niece, Marli, . . . oh, and my sister and brother-in-law . . . tomorrow. And we are going to be able to spend Christmas with Kenneth’s family as well! So happy that holidays are such a great excuse to visit family. Because of all the traveling, I am guessing this will be my last post until 2012.

So the real point of this post- I have finally made enough progress on the toddler’s dress that I can post some pictures.

Here are some:

All I have to do is finish off the collar and tackle the zipper! Wish me luck! :)


BYU Basketball

Yes, proof that Kenneth and I went to a BYU basketball game. It was over Thanksgiving break, hence the empty bleachers (and why we were able to go for free).

Lessons Learned

So when a package of frozen rolls says, “Keep in freezer until ready to cook” I would recommend following those instructions . . . or this will happen-

The bag was so close to popping!

And Kenneth took a quick nap on the pillow bag of rolls.

Blue Man Group!

For our anniversary (what?! one year on Sunday?), Kenneth and I decided to buy some concert tickets, so we went to the Blue Man’s Group! This was my first time seeing it, and Kenneth’s fourth time seeing it. (Can you tell that he really likes them?)

Not only are the Blue Man Group extremely musically talented, but they are way funny! I died when they were in the middle of a skit, stopped, and started recording the people who were coming in late. The video was displayed on the huge screen so everyone could see them, and really loud obnoxious music started playing, “you’re late! you’re late! you’re very very late!”

We loved it, so we stayed after the show and took some pictures with them.

They “signed” Kenneth’s face by putting blue on his cheeks. Not sure how they keep such a straight face all the time without laughing. Loved them, though! I would highly recommend seeing them.

Gingerbread House

It is a tradition on Kenneth’s side of the family to make gingerbread houses every year from scratch, so we tried it out by ourselves (minus the wreath and Christmas tree that was made by my wonderful mother-in-law who is the master of gingerbread houses. Seriously, people. Hers are beautiful.)

I was pretty nervous and was a bit frazzled trying to make the gingerbread, but thankfully Kenneth came home just in the knick of time to help out, and it turned out great!

Do you like my artsy attempt of getting the real Christmas tree in the background?

Free Clothing

What’s better than free, right?

With my internship, they bought me some new outfits at the beginning of the internship. (It has only taken me 5 months to post this.) So here it is:

I got three t’s and a cami.

And then I got three blouses.

And three slacks. I also got some BYU logo apparel as well, but I’ll spare you. Very unflattering.

So yeah, pretty exciting! Thanks, BYU!

Penrose Reunion

My freshman year of college, I lived in Heritage Halls, specifically the best hall called Penrose, which happens to be the prettiest name out of all of the Heritage Halls. Believe me . . . I based my decision on where to live on that. Anyway, I lived with five other girls, and we instantly clicked. Everyone thought that we knew each other before we came to college.

This is a picture from the first football game, and is one of the first pictures of all of us together. When it was game day, we were all totally comfortable helping one another get ready. As you can see by the random limbs everywhere in this picture, we may have been a little too comfortable. Crazy girls.

Well, we finally had a reunion where all of us were able to attend (plus spouses and Mr. MacInfy, the invisible friend)! It lasted about 3 hours even though it did not feel like that at all. We basically chatted the whole time. So many fun, yet embarrassing stories that were revealed and relived.

Kenneth told me he even really enjoyed himself . . . not that he doesn’t usually enjoy himself in social settings, but 3 hours of chatting about his wife’s freshman year? That could get boring pretty fast, but Ken said it was fun. Yea! That means future Penrose reunions as well, right? :)

Well, here is what we looked like 4 whole years ago (what?! where has time gone? ahh!):

And what we look like now:

Do we look the same? Just four years wiser? Apparently Erica (bottom middle) has “wild, crazy hair” according to her primary class.

Sorry, I do not have a picture of all of us including the spouses. I believe Stacy has those. *hint hint*


And then some things just never change like pulling faces during pictures.

Here are a few of many:


Love you girls! Wish we all still lived together . . . but then again, I do enjoy the sleep that I get now. You’re all too fun! :)
