I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas this year! I love being able to reflect on the Saviors birth and celebrate it with good friends and family. Here are a few updates from the last month.
The greatest part of the holidays is being with family! I love my family so much and had the greatest Christmas ever! Thanks mom & dad for all the hard work that you put in to make Christmas awesome. I loved being able to play with my niece Eliza and nephew Nicholas. They are at such a fun age and do so many cute things.
This year all the kids bought my dad the leg lamp from the movie
"The Christmas Story" it was so fun to see his face when he opened it. We made him put it in our front window... there has been quite a few honks and people stopping to take a picture of it... we love it ;)

I also went to the Ashman Christmas party! It was great, every year they play some type of game and each person on the winning team gets $150. I was lucky enough to be on the winning team this year! I love working for Ashman dental, they have an awesome staff and great patients.


Sean (my brother) is engaged to Erin Duff!

Melissa (my sister) is Pregnant!
Elizabeth (the raddest girl ever) is Pregnant!
Well, I hope that everyone is doing awesome and enjoyed the holidays!

Happy Birthday Melissa!

Melissa is one of the most genuine, selfless, caring, upbeat, talented girls I know. She can do just about anything, here are just a few things she has mastered, certified to teach pilates and spinning, cutting hair, hosting parties, being an amazing mom, loving others unconditionally, campaigning for Mitt, surfing, being a waitress, making friends, being very handy, and she is so beautiful! I always love being with Melissa, she brightens any room she walks into. The second you meet her you can't help but love her. She is a great example and friend to so many. I hope you have an amazing birthday Melissa, I love your guts!

What a wonderful time of year!!! I will be honest, I just love having a holiday that is spent eating large amounts of food eaten with family. Two of my favorite things ;) I feel so blessed to be part of the crazy Cook family! I love my family and I am so glad that our entire family was there this year. It has been 4 years since we have all been together for Thanksgiving. I loved spending time with my niece Eliza and nephew Nicholas. They are the reason I get homesick. We had fun shopping, watching movies, swimming, playing games, and laughing at eachother.

Melissa & Elise are the BEST!!!!

Last week Melissa Lundquist came to Utah for a little visit, and while she was here she threw me a little.... ummm divorce party. Not that we love celebrating divorces, but to celebrate this next stage of life. She is seriously the sweetest girl, I love her to pieces!!! They had food, pin the pony tail on Stephanie, a white elephant gift exchange and then played the funnest game of boxers to briefs. It was so fun to have old, and new friends there to celebrate with. Thanks Melissa and Elise for an amazing night! I had a blast!!! Earlier that day I got to visit with Kelly Evers at Zupas, she came up from Colorado to visit for the weekend.
Friday night I got to go on the most amazing date I have been on!!!!
Since Melissa's divorce is not final I got to be her date for the night.
We had a blast going to dinner at Noodles,
painting a cup at color me mine, and ending with delicious gelato!!!
It was so fun to spend time with her, she was an amazing date, that's for sure!
Yesterday I went to the Warren Miller movie Playground, and it was amazing!!! For anyone that loves skiing or snowbaording or just likes to be entertained I highly recommend seeing it this year, I loved every second of it!

Conference weekend!

What an awesome weekend!!! I loved listening to a modern day Prophet! What a blessing it is to have the fullness of this gospel! It was also fun to have Sean and Brodie my brothers here for the weekend. They are such studs, I love them. We had crepes at my house for breakfast Sunday and watched conference and then that night we went up to see all the fall colors at Sundance... Let's just say amazing!!! It is so beautiful right now! It was a great way to end conference weekend. (the pictures were taking by my brother in-law Brian)

Quick update

This is a quick update, our internet has been down at our condo for a while so I have not had a chance to post anything. Things are going awesome!!! I worked at Sundance for a week and then got a job at a dental office in Provo so I put in my 2 weeks at Sundance. I loved working at Sundance, but I am excited to be working closer to home. My first day at the dental office was Friday and I loved it. These pictures are from the last few weeks that I have been in Provo. Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well! I love you all!
