Date Night

Friday night Jeremy and I decided to really have a date night. I mean REALLY.
After a nice dinner (of course we used a coupon), we headed to Maxx Putt Fun Zone (we used yet another coupon). It's located right by our house and we've always wondered about it. The mini-golf is glow-in-the-dark and themed "Around the world in 18 holes." Each hole was a different famous landmark. We got glowing wristbands, putters, and balls all of the same color (I picked green, Jeremy was orange). It was dark, but we tried to take pictures of our fun adventure.

These are where the landmarks' facts are shown.


Big Ben!

At the last hole, The Golden Gate Bridge, where Jeremy got a hole-in-one!

In Antarctica.

I'm proud to say I only lost by 2. The mini-golf was fun and educational. What an awesome date night!

'Tis the Season

I can't believe how fast the end of the year is approaching! After my birthday, Halloween and Thanksgiving came and went so quickly.

There's not much to tell about Halloween. We went to the ward party (dressed as nerds) then went home and ran out of candy (our neighborhood is popular apparently). I guess we ate too much of our own candy!

Thanksgiving morning we went to the movie A Christmas Carol in 3D. Although it was a very dark movie (not recommended for kids!), the 3D was absolutely awesome! It really made the movie! I can't wait to go and see more movies in 3D.

For Thanksgiving lunch, we met with the Short side of the family at the Amerjan's. We ate lots of yummy traditional food. My favorite was the mashed potatoes and Lindsey's home-made bread!

After a nice nap, we went to the Brown Thanksgiving festivities at Black Angus. My grandpa wanted to treat us to a nice meal where no one had to stress about cooking. It sure was yummy!

Jeremy and I had the opportunity to go to the Nutcracker on Thanksgiving weekend. Fresno Unified employees got a special ticket price so I jumped on that opportunity. Luckily I have a wonderful husband who is willing to try new things, like going to the ballet!

Here is a picture of us after the show:
Last Friday, Jeremy's company (Decipher) had their Christmas party at Erna's Elderberry House. I believe it is the only 5 Diamond restaurant in the valley. Everyone met at Decipher to load charter buses and we traveled to Oakhurst. We started out with questionable appetizers (Jeremy tried everything of course) and had an interesting 3-course meal. Everything was new to me, but it was all very good. Quite the once-in-a-lifetime-experience!

Here is a picture of us at our table:
We got home very late, so our Saturday was spent lounging around. I can't imagine what kind of Saturday morning was had by the people drinking at the party!

The inside of our house is decorated for Christmas, so hopefully the outside will follow soon. Here is a picture of our Christmas tree:
We hope everyone has a great holiday season!
