christmas deliciousness

So, I was complaining to one of my good friends, Andy (if he had a blog, I would link his name right over) that all I want every year for Christmas is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in my stocking. Whenever I tell the Faj Mahal this, his response is always: "Those things are filthy and full of hydrogenated oils!" {ps, they're not} or "I always get you peanut butter cups!" {because he gets the peanut butter cups from BYU's candy counter, which are seriously not as delicious as Reese's.} I reiterate that I just want the bright orange cheap-o ones, but really, he refuses to buy them. Dramatic? Yes. But I secretly like that he takes a stand on it, I guess. Anyway, Andy cleverly wrapped a "shoots and ladders" box {trying to psyche me out, because I hate board games} and it was FULL of Reese's Peanut Butter cups. It was really exciting. Lars especially loved it, as you'll see in the following three photos. {Note Lars' progressing excitement in the following three photos - pay special attention to his hands and face in each photo.}

And I'm trying to be better at documenting exciting events, such as Christmas, but my brothers just aren't as into it. For example:

And the Faj Mahal's salmon/clam chowder is so heavenly, even though it looks gross, yellow, and glossy in this pho-to. If Trevor {I would also link over to his blog, but I don't know how...} took the photo, the food would look delicious.

i heart my brothers. they are so cute.
