You a Spinach/Artichoke fan???

We are:)

I am in LOVE with my friend 'spinach and artichoke dip'. I saw this recipe on Studio 5 and thought to myself...self, you love spinach and artichoke dip AND you love pasta, so JUST DO IT! I proved myself trustworthy because I DID IT and it was YUMMY!

Spinach Artichoke Pasta recipe here.
We rated it as a once a month or so type of meal.

Robert got his Broker license in November! I am very very proud of him. He actually signed up to take his test for a certain date and then the whole week before and during his test he had the lovely SWINE FLU. He must be one smart cookie to accomplish that with the deadly bug. Him and his brother will both be Brokers for Cornerstone Real Estate Professionals in Ogden and Logan, Utah. I am so very proud of him for supporting our little family and we wish him and his company the best of luck in 2010.

Our Christmas

Christmas Eve we spent at my parents. We played games, ate amazing meals (lobster tails and steak), played in the snow, guys went shooting, girls cleaned, acted out the nativity, and opened presents.

This year we spent most the time in my parents garage. They had it decorated so cute and it was nice and warm, unless you were bear foot:)
My parents spent months working on each grandkid a locker that they can keep with them forever. They matched each kid up with their personalities PERFECT.

Zack's is red with animal magnets on it to match their playroom.
Payton's is blue with cars and choo choo trains to match the playroom or his car bed.
We stayed at my parents until Santa came and then headed back to our house so we could wake up on Christmas Day at our own home.
Santa brought us to much again. He also started a tradition in the Brown home to bring goodies. Robert was in heaven. If you read this...THANK YOU SANTA!
I don't remember capturing this picture because I don't remember Zack opening any presents. I guess he opened one.
Payton got what he asked for...a...CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!!
Grandpa and Grandma Brown spoiled the boys with a rocking horse and a big pop-up (Thomas the Train) tent. They love them both:)
Santa brought Payton a train and toy story toys and other stuff
Santa brought Zack lots of cars and diego toys and other stuff
Santa brought Chelsie lots of things for her camera and computer and other stuff
Santa brought Robert a blu ray home theater system and other stuff
Thank you to both Robert and I's parents and Santa. We had a great Christmas this year.
