I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

Mackintosh Family Christmas Party~

On Saturday morning we went to Salt Lake to have the Mackintosh family Christmas party. We played some really fun games and watched a slide show that my sister made of pictures of the family with my grandma and grandpa.

It's always fun to see cousins you don't get to see too often. I love all my family! =0)

...Shandi and Daniel with my grandma Mackintosh... (she recently was diagnosed with cancer, that's why she is all cozy.)

...Myley with Grandpa and Grandma Mack...
....Sean and Kelsey...

Court Family Christmas Party~

Later that day we had my mom's side Christmas party. I love a day full of parties! My mom's side of the family is so much fun. We are all so close and I love being around everyone.

...My mom and her two brothers... Uncle Budd, Mom, and Uncle Bruce.... I didn't get a picture on my camera of the whole family.

5 year Anniversary: Thanksgiving: Park City shopping:

Daniel Wells Larsen Jr married Shandi Rae Mackintosh on November 24, 2004. We celebrated our 5 year anniversary this past week! Whoop Whoop! I can't believe it's been 5 years already. It goes by so fast. "Time flies when you're having fun." =o)

Five things I love about Daniel/being married:

1~ We always have fun together. Whether it's listening to music together, off on some big adventure or everything in between. We love hanging out.

2~ He's my strength and my encouragement. He is always so thoughtful and forgiving. He never gives up on me. I know for a fact I would have crumbled without his support many times. He is one of a kind. He truly is AMAZING.

3~ "Dang boy, you fine!" He is so adorable/sexy/cute/handsome. I don't know how I got so lucky. He always out dresses me. I never have to worry what he goes out in public wearing. He's always been a sharp dresser. So HOT! haha.

4~ He is such a hard worker. He works full time and goes to school full time. I don't know how he does it, but he never gives up. He still manages to find the time and energy to make dinner for me when I get home from work. (he probably finds the energy because I'm such a horrible cook. ha.) Also, Daniel is an amazing COOK.

5~ We have gone through so much together in our 8 years of knowing each other. We never give up. We try every minute to make each other happy and to not be selfish. We love each other so much and I know it's corny, but we really are each others best friends. I would choose Daniel over anyone to spend my time with. I have had so much fun over the years and can't wait for many more years together.

Happy 5 year Anniversary Lover Boy!

On Wednesday night (the night before Thanksgiving) Daniel's mom cooks us Thanksgiving dinner. It was so good!!! I love the tradition. (who doesn't like an extra Thanksgiving meal?) We all had a lot of fun hanging out.

On Thanksgiving Daniel's dad invited us over to eat. He cooked a great meal that was delicious. I forgot to take a picture with our Wednesday night group so I made sure I got one on Thanksgiving. in photo...Danny (dad), Daniel, me, Mike and Chris...
Our tradition for the past four years (this year included) we go to Park City and stay the night on Thanksgiving and then go shopping on Black Friday. This year since it was a 5 year we stayed an extra night. I love going up there, walking around, shopping, swimming and eating our caramel apples that are to die for!

Here we are waiting in our room to go shopping at midnight.
and we are off to shop!We ended up shopping from midnight until around 3:00 am. We then went back to bed for a few hours and then...We're off again.
Lets just say we had a successful shopping day. :)We had a blast and can't wait to do it again next year. They have such great deals. We love the outlets. We ate great food while there and also had 3 caramel apples. I'm obsessed. =o)

What a great anniversary week! I didn't want it to end. We both took off the full week to hang out. It's so hard to go back to work after enjoying all the free time together. .....Same place and time next year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's so fun to have a girls night....Myley, my mom and me....Me and Myley played a little game of competitive checkers.
