Party over here!

In our first year of marriage we have accomplished some great feats including epic rafting trips, finishing the Twilight series, and most recently, hosting Thanksgiving Dinner. That's right, from our cute little apartment for two. We reserved the basement of our apartment for the event, and outsourced ovens, but we still had to prepare for 17 people (Me and Cam, My family + significant others, Tiffany and Co, and My mom's sister's family.)
Table 1:
Table 2 (the cool kid table):
I never got a picture of the kid table during the 3 seconds they sat there, but here are the little people chillin in our bed watching a movie:
It was ton's of fun and I'm glad everyone could make it... but next year I'm inviting everyone to my parent's house...

Primary Program

Today was our primary program- the kids did absolutely fantastically… and lived up to all expectations in the ridiculously funny category. A few of the highlights for me included:

  • My fantastic next-door neighbor (of “Hazardous living”) doesn’t know most of the songs, and can’t read the cue cards. So he just sang the scattered words he knew, and hummed the rest at the top of his lungs. One of the songs he didn’t know well, he just sang the words a half-second after the other kids.
  • Cole (afore mentioned 3-year-old owner of the Baby Bimmer) didn’t get up to sit on the stand with the rest of the kids. When it came to his part Sister Jones asked him in the microphone if he would get up and say his part. From the back of the room he proudly marched- it probably took him 2 minutes to get up there- said his one line, and sat down beaming.
  • A cute sunbeam, told me beforehand that she didn’t want any help because she could do her part by herself. After 10 secconds of “ah, er, um” at the microphone, she said her part perfectly and without any help.
  • Of course, how could I leave out Cameron sitting in the back of the audience holding up the poster of the thermometer to remind the kids to sing louder… we may not have any children, but it was still a proud day in the Horch household.

Dancing

As many of you may know, Cameron and I are taking our first dance class together this semester- it's been tons of fun for us and Cameron is doing wonderfully. As part of the class, we competed yesterday in the BYU Dancesport competition. We competed in the Triple Swing, and for your entertainment, here is the video of us in round one:

We made it through all three rounds of the morning without getting eliminated, and called back for the quarterfinals (top 24 out of like 75 couples) last night! We didn't do so hot in the quarterfinal round though, so that was the end of the road for us-- but we had a ton of fun and got to watch some other great performers (the couple right behind us in the video got 3rd). I even managed to get Cam psyched up for our latin dance class next semester, you'll want to stay tuned for videos from that performance for sure!

November Camping

Being as it was such a nice fall day yesterday, and being as I am married to Cameron, he asked me to go on an adventure with him yesterday. The proposal went like this:
Cam: Would you like to go on a walk by the Provo river with me and then cook our dinner over a fire?
Kim: Yes, but I don't want to go on a walk up a mountain, or sleep there after we cook dinner.
Despite my concerns Cam meant exactly what he said. Here are some pictures of our walk by the river- it really was a beautiful day



Then we went and found a spot we could have an open fire and cam had brought foil dinners so we cooked those and ate them.
Cam had a great time making his fire, and I had some fantastic hot chocolate- and then went home and slept in my warm bed, which by all accounts makes it a perfect November camping trip.
