Blue Man Group!!

Cody surprised me with an early Christmas present to the Blue Man Group! I was so exited to go, I have always wanted to see them live. The show was awesome, they were very original. I do recommend to spend the extra money for the tickets near the front because they do a lot of things with the crowed.
Cody's face makes me laugh, I think he was afraid of this guy:)
These two guys where the band. Drums and guitar I think.
Any picture I think I look ugly in goes to black and white, I think it makes me look better:)

Ugly Sweater Party

We went to a friends house last night for an "ugly sweater party". I had never been to one of these and didn't think it would be that funny to see everyone in ugly sweaters. But I was way wrong. It was SO FUN! It was hilarious to see all of the hideous sweaters that are made. Cody and I did not win the contest for the ugliest sweaters but we had some tough competition.
They also had a white elephant gift exchange. Cody and I had gone to a party last year where a guy brought a framed picture of himself, and it was so funny. We copied the idea this year and it was great! This funniest girl their opened it and about died when she saw what it was. She made a huge deal and said that the picture was going on her night stand:)
The night was full of a lot of games, and food. It fun to get together with friends. I am now on the lookout for ugly sweaters, because I am determined to win the contest next year:)

Cody and I in out ugly sweaters. As we were leaving Cody says " this is so embarrassing going to hang out with friend in ugly sweaters like this." But once we saw what everyone else had on we didn't feel so bad:)
all the girls...
This is the picture we framed in a 8x10 frame. He sign saying, "to my #1 fan"

I made it home for the holidays!! It was so fun. We were planning on taking off on Wednesday morning but Tuesday morning there was a blizzard predicted through the mountains. Our only hope of making it was to leave Tuesday. There was no way I could have left work, I had a packed day of hair tell 9:00 at night, luckily at 5:00 Cody called me and said if we left by 6 he thinks we could make it. I was able to move my last apts around cruise home, pack really fast, find someone to take care of YW activity. And we made it!! Perfect roads the hole way.
The week was great. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my Grandparents house. It was pack with 60+ . We have grown out of my grandmas house so we now eat at the church:) It was so fun to see so much of my family!
We spent the rest of the weekend at my parents. Eating lots of food, playing basketball, getting Christmas trees and hanging out together. I love spending time with my family, they are the best, LOVE you guys!!

My new little nephew, Alexander Paul Berry. He is so precious! We went down to Grand Junction this weekend for his baby blessing. It was so fun to be with all of the family. The trip was short and sweet. We had a great time. Jen and Jackson were able to give Cody and I lots of advice on parenting.

New Callings

You gotta love new church callings. Sometimes they are what you want and you are super exited for the new task and other times you may grit you teeth and say yes. And you are relying on the Lord to help you out because you are not sure if you are cut out for it.

When Cody and I moved into our new ward I got called as the activity chairmen. I had no idea that meant I was over the whole activity's committee. I said yes to the calling somewhat exited and then asked who is the the president? Bishop laughed and said well that's you. "Oh No" is what I was thinking:) But with a few tears and lots of praying for help, I got released a month later and put into young women's. Little did I know the next day at church Cody got put into my old calling. So I'm feeling like I have both callings now:)
All will work out, and we are more than willing to serve in our church callings. And I know if we put our all into these calling we will be blessed.

Labor day weekend

Labor day weekend was great! All the Markham's came home for the long weekend which always means lots of food, games and late nights.
On Thursdays the girls played beauty shop. Kylie and Alyssa came over and we colored hair, waxed our faces and got some glitter toes. It was a lot of fun!
Friday we had a BBQ, Mindi made her famous ribs and corn on the cob. Once it got dark we went and roasted some smores. Saturday was wedding day, we had a family friend get married in Denver. It was beautiful!! The best part for me was they had an open bar, but it was all alcohol free. They were called mocktails. It was fun to be able to try all the fancy colored drinks:) This is always sad when this happens, but kind of funny too. At the ceremony during the wedding, they had two brides maids faint. It wasn't funny at the time but I get a pretty good chuckle thinking about it now.

Im always mad at myself for not taking enough pictures. But here are a few that I did get.

One of the reasons why I love him!

I love my Cody!! He is the nicest person I have ever met. One of the things I love about him is when he surprises me with gifts. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just today he brought me home a "surprise."He gets this cute smile on his face when I beg him to tell me what it is. He got me a key, its in the shape of a guitar. Not really quite sure why but it was cute non the less. He has also surprised me with carpet cleaners, jewelry, money for me to spend. My favorite surprise was on our first anniversary I thought he might have not gotten my anything because I was being sneaky and watching the debit card to see if I could catch him getting it:) but on our anniversary he gave me a beautiful necklace. He had bought it for his wife when he was 16 in Mexico. He told me he has a lot more things he bought his wife before we met but he will give them to me through out our life. He is precious.
And this one of the reasons why I love Cody...

Sorry this post may be boring for some of you. I have decided to blog for journaling purposes also. So there will be a lot more fluff and things that you might not really care about.


I have no clue where August has gone, summer too. We have been so busy with our jobs. Cody has been gone for days at a time in Wisconsin doing training for work. I always think I'm going to be so lonely but the time sure does fly by and it seems like he is home the next day.
I was super super busy at work. Double booked all day. Which I normally would love but with still being sick from the pregnancy it was tough. I have slowed down since school started and I am not complaining at all.
We just finished getting the salon put in the house:) It looks awesome!! I couldn't ask for anything more. So I am starting to advertise around town to get some business at home. I will post pics soon.
We have a new nephew who is here!!! Alexander Berry was born yestarday afternoon. Jennifer my sister is now a proud mother of 4 beautiful kids. I can not wait to meet this little guy. She shared lots of detail of the labor with me. She did this one all natural!! Which I have really wanted to do but I may be having some second thoughts. I am glad I had a sister to fill me in on all the pregnancy info I need to know.
Here are some pics of the past few weeks....
