On a mission...

Every week we try to do a ladies night with just the girls going out and having fun. This last week we went and got Sushi and then took a trip to Ikea in search of some mini spoons that they had at the restaurant. After making our way through the store participating in a lot of different activites and exploring many different types of furniture, like stefanie's little bear friend and Ashlee's round bed that she wants, we finally found them! That place is so huge and I already have some ideas of how i want my future house to be decorated! : ) It was a lot of fun and I am excited to see what other adventures us girls are going to get ourselves into in future nights!

Bowling with the kids

So all of the kids went bowling on New Years Eve and i totally dominated all! Yeah that's right, what now! : ) It was a lot of fun just going out with all of us because we don't get a chance to do that very often. Christian and Angela were trying to give Ashlee some pointers because everytime she would be done with her turn she would turn around and mumble "I hate this stupid game" or something like that! She ended up doing a lot better by just using her left hand though! It was fun!

*ashlee singing* "It's ChristmaAas!"

Christmas was so awesome this year! It was fun just having the whole family together this year since last year we were all in different states for Christmas. Hanging out with the Critchfield's is always a unique experience indeed but i wouldn't have it any other way! It is always so crazy and fun, especially when we are trying to figure clues out for a scavenger hunt at midnight, or riding in the bed of Jason's truck on our way home in the freezing cold screaming I'LLL GET THE DOG TURD and singing, "Baby it's cold outside" to cars passing by : ) ....ah good times. This will definitely be a Christmas that i remember for numerous reasons and I hope that there are a lot more like it! My family is so awesome and I just love them all so much! We all got some pretty good gifts this year but I have to say that my favorite gift is one that we all got. On Christmas Eve my mom gave us all a copy of the Book of Mormon and just told us that this year we should try and find someone that we can really help try and see the light of the gospel and be able to share that book with them with our testimony in it. I am excited to find someone to give it to and it was just good to get a gift like that. I'm sad that the season is over but excited for all the fun memories we will have as the years go on!
