Did I mention one of my good friends (Jana) is building on the street behind us? So exciting! Her husband took pictures of the house for us while we were out of town. Thank you! My sweet dad also snapped some pictures for us. We got our completion date, March 11th! That's a few days sooner than expected.

Disney Land, Christmas, and Anniversary

December was such a busy but fun month! We spent five days in California, four of which were in Disney Land. We thought we'd be burned out by day two, but we realized It' s a must with a toddler. We rode just about all the rides and ate all the good foods (plus extra dole whips). Kinlee did so well and had such a good time. Her favorite rides were the carousel (same as last year) and The Little Mermaid.
We had such a good Christmas too! Kinlee loved watching her cousins open presents, probably more than opening them herself. I actually enjoyed not having my house decorated this year. It was a different, but good experience. We were able to focus on the true meaning of Christmas even more. I also loved not having to worry about cleaning up after. So relaxing! ...although I plan on decorating in the future.;)
Kraig and I celebrated our 5th anniversary! Kinlee stayed with her cousins at aunt Mel's house (Thank you! Thank you!), while we spent the night in Salt Lake. We stayed at our first Bed and Breakfast and absolutely loved it! Anniversary Inn has such fun themed rooms and an amazing breakfast! I'm so terrible at taking pictures lately, we wouldn't have any if it weren't for Kraig. I hope you're all surviving this cold long January!

Green Salsa Sausage Dip

This one is definitely a favorite! If you're counting calories... you've been warned! Once you start, there's no stopping! I'll include a picture next time I make it. I'm thinking this would be great for New Year's Eve.

Green Salsa Sausage Dip

8oz. cream cheese
16oz. sour cream
4oz. can green chiles (any kind)
about a 16oz. jar mild to medium green salsa (I’ve used La Victoria and La Constena, both work great)
1lb. regular sausage, browned and drained

Combine cream cheese, sour cream, green chiles, and green salsa in a crockpot. Add sausage (browned and drained) and cook on high until cream cheese is melted and salsa is well mixed. Serve warm with chips. Enjoy!
