Thanksgiving was a blast this year!! Callie had her second child, Liliana, Cliff came down from Utah, and we ate SO much food! It was relaxing and crazy all at the same time. Here are a bunch of pictures from our Thanksgiving weekend.

This one is for Callie

Callie called me yesterday and said I haven't posted in a while. So I decided to post something funny. I'm not sure if you have seen this picture yet, but I just can't stop laughing every time I see it. This is what Silo looks like when we bathe him, haha! He looks like an old man!

Yesterday he got the CUTEST hair cut...I will post some new pictures of his hair soon.

6 Things you didn't know about me...

Tiffany tagged me with this survey and I'm excited to do it! I love these survey's because it keeps me busy at work:) You might already know some of this about me, but I'll try to keep it interesting!

1. I have never gotten a ticket before! Yes I am proud to say I have no tickets under my belt, but I have gotten in a couple fender benders :/

2. I am a surprisingly good cook when I try. I don't cook too often, which is something I need to change, but when I do it's always delicious! It's the Glover blood that gives me my cooking skills.

3. I LOVE any craft! I absolutely love creating something from scratch because it's so rewarding when you're finished! I can spend hours in Michael's just looking around for ideas on what to do next. I also sew and I am almost done with my first quilt! It's made out of batik fabric and has a very colorful, vibrant feeling to it. The only problem with this hobby is that it's expensive...but aren't most hobbies?

4. I love old jazz tunes. I feel so relaxed and at peace when I listen to them. It makes me feel like I'm re-living the 50's with my red lipstick and high wasted skirt! I enjoy Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and many more! Adam isn't too crazy about this genre, but I can't get enough!

5. Unlike Tiffany, I LOVE shopping for jeans! I don't know why you don't enjoy it Tiff because I love it. You should come shopping with me because I know what stores to hit. I have this weird obsession with jeans and I'm not sure why. I probably have over 15 pairs of jeans! I love it when I have found that perfect pair that fits me like a glove because when I put them on I feel like a million bucks! It's not only me I like shopping for either, I get so excited when Adam needs a new pair because I get to help him find them!

6. The last thing that you might not know about me is that I love Harry Potter. I love everything about the series. I love how JK Rowling is so creative with her magical world. I like fantasy books because when I read them I like to pretend life could be magical. Obviously it's not possible for someone to fly on a broomstick, but it's fun to pretend:)

People I would like to tag are...Rhonda, Callie, Kera, Cliff, and Kaitlin! (You don't have to do the survey, but they're fun to read!)

Do you remember this day? I thought it would be fun to reminisce for a second.

These are my siblings Cindel, Callie, Kera, and Cliff. I love this picture because it reminds me of typical Maxwell behavior when the spotlight is on us! We tend to feel awkward when we are put on the spot...and as you can see they are hiding behind the flowers! Ooh I miss you all; good times!

CA Fires!

I'm sure you've all heard about the CA fires. Adam and I are happy to say we are safe and still have a home. The fire burned 18 homes in our stake about 2 miles away. We feel so blessed to have stayed with my parents during our evacuation period. I am so happy we have family close by; I don't know what we would have done if we had no where to go. Rancho Bernardo is looking better everyday. The community is helping out a lot and cleaning up our beautiful town. Here are a couple pictures from the fire. These were taken yesterday about 2 miles from our home.

An update on the Lauper's!

I thought I would post a written entry to update everyone on what's going on with Adam and I. Adam is doing really well at HP. He is going on a business trip to WA this Sunday for a whole week!!!:( I wish I was going with him because I don't like being alone, but there's not much I can do. I will keep busy with Silo and my unfinished crafts:)
At the moment I have a couple crafts I am working on. I bought three large canvases because I am going to attempt to paint a picture for our living room. I don't really know what I'm doing, but my mom and sister are wonderful artists, so I'm hoping I inherited some of their skills! A couple other crafts I need to finish are my quilt (it's just about done, but I need to do the borders) and a picture board of Silo.
Well, I am still working at American Assets, but I am planning on going to school this coming January. Here is my situation...I want to get my Bachelors in Interior Design at San Diego State University, but there are complications. In order for me to get accepted at SDSU, I have to take 6 classes to enter into my desired major and a couple more generals that I didn't take at BYU-I. THe problem is that I must complete all these courses by Spring of 2008 in order to get in for Fall of 2008. 8 classes is about 24 credits, which is impossible to do in just one semester! This means I will not be admitted until Fall of 2009!!!!! So I called a counselor at SDSU and they told me to find a major that doesn't require many classes to transfer and then switch once I've been accepted. That is my plan right now. I am trying to find a major that doesn't require a lot, which will get me into the school. If anyone has any advice, please let me know. I need to be sneaky to pull this off, and trust me, I'm not good at sneaky!

Prison Break

Have any of you seen Prison Break? Well Adam and I love it! We started watching it this year and are almost done with the second season. When Adam told me about this show I was very skeptical because it's not my type of show, but now I can't take my eyes off of it! It's fascinating how he escapes from prison and is on the run! As you can see I have a picture of a man with tattoos everywhere (he is the main character) and the reason he has soo many tattoos is because it's his map to escape from prison. It's pretty neat to watch the story unfold.

As for Adam and I, we are doing well. Things haven't changed much in San Diego. We are just working and taking care of Silo. This summer we traveled quite a bit and now it's time to relax :)

For those who haven't seen our home:)

This is when we first got our furniture. We have more on the walls now and it's looking more like a home everyday!

The painting is the painting we bought in Paris...we love it! It is an authentic oil painting. It will always remind us of our wonderful trip to France!
