Gnocchetti Alfredo & Our Beautiful Christmas Tree

So I have totally been slacking on making good dinners so I was so excited to make this for dinner on Sunday. I used the recipe from Our Best Bites Cookbook for Guiltless Alfredo Sauce, but instead of putting it on pasta, Kyle gave the idea to put it on Gnocchetti. They're is similar to Gnocchi, which are small dumpling-like potato noodles used in place of pasta (and they cook in 2 min) Sooo amazing! Kyle made some amazing potatoes and dang it was one great meal!

Our Best Bites - Guiltless Alfredo Sauce:

Yayyy it's Christmas time!! Kyle and I hung our stalkings, bought and decorated our tree, and finally.. opened our early Christmas present from Kyle's parents that is our latest addition to our home... Our TV:)

Making Christmas Stockings

Kyle and I thought it would be fun to make our own Christmas stockings this year:) Thank you Hobby Lobby!

We first just cut out a shape from a Cheerios box:

 Then traced them on fleece and hot glued on fabric, ribbon, etc before sewing the edges:

Arizona & Sterling going to the MTC!!

My parents bought Kyle and I plane tickets to surprise the family last weekend to be home before my brother Sterling left on his mission to the Hermosillo Mexico, Spanish speaking mission. It was so much fun in Arizona. When we were down there we took family pictures:)

 My cute parents<3

 The lovely newlyweds:)

Kyle and I flew back Sunday night because we had work and school the next day, but Sterling flew up on Tuesday night. Kyle's wonderful parents were so amazing and picked Sterling up from the airport and took him to dinner while we finished school and work and drove down to Centerville that night. The next morning we headed to the MTC with Sterling and stopped by Pizza Pie Cafe for his last meal before the MTC!

So much fun dropping him off!

We love him!!

Fun with da Hubby

Yes, I know alot of my posts are food, but we just LOVE food and LOVE even more to EAT it! :)

Easy Crockpot Sunday dinner:
Potatoes, carrots, chicken, onion, water, and a chicken gravy mix. Mix altogether while at church at delish. I love it with roast also.

Not too difficult but this looked so good I had to take a picture:) We just love our George Forman. 

So.. once again Our Best Bites Cookbook amazes me again! Seriously Everything in that book is soo good. It actually snowed for the first day in Logan so I decided to make soup. YUM! 

Chicken & Dumplings
(My new FAVORITE soup!! A MUST try!)

 No-Bake Cookies
What can be better for a late Sunday snack?

Ha I've got smarter by just taking a picture of the recipe...

Enjoying our cookies..

Halloween 2011!!

What is more fun then to make your own Halloween costumes right? Ha well I did this the night before, soooo if it weren't so last second they would look a tad better but here are parts of our costumes I made: 
Peter Pan & Tinkerbell

Peter's Hat:
I cut 2 strips of brown felt (they're on top of each other), sewed 2 sides but not the bottom-then turned it inside out.

Then I cut two smaller strips and sewed the left side together. Slide the 2 strips insider the hat and sew around the edges.

Flip the edges up and glue in a feather and walaaa..
(For Peter's shirt we just bought a green shirt and cut triangles on the arms and bottm-super simple..

I bought 2 different colors of tule and cut them in 2-3 inch strips. Then tied them on a ribbon altering colors:

I had extra loose pieces that I sewed together to make sleeves. As for the main piece of the top-I just bought a shirt, turned it upside down, glued some sparkles on it and ta-da!

Lovely Darlin!

We had a party at our house with some friends over and it was sooo much fun!! Everyone brought amazing desserts while Kyle and I made homemade Rootbeer! Sooo GOOD!

 Don't mind the stash... yes it's real.
