New Pics

I've been wanting to get our pictures taken for quite a while now and we finally made the time and got it done. A friend at work took them for us last week and these are just few of our favorites...

I love this man!!

Our first big project this spring was to take out the big messy tree in front of our house...
Yes, the monkey in this picture is Nick and that is our huge tree out front (well, not anymore!)

I should have started taking pictures and videos earlier but this is the first video of part of the tree coming down. Watch the branches fly when it lands...

TIMBER! ...and down it goes! It took a few tries to pull it down but we finally got it done! If you listen at the end of this video, you can here my brother-in-law, Payden say "Now we can go outside!" I think he was a little excited to go out and start stacking wood... one project down and a bunch more to go!! I just hope we can get some of them done before all our summer activities start happening. We've got a bunch planned.

Okay, so that's all you get right now cause my computer keeps giving me grief whenever I try to add more pics or videos.

Happy St. Patty's!!

Here's dinner! If you're wondering what it is, it's green beans, green mashed potatoes, green pasta roni and green milk. It doesn't look all that great but it sure was tasty!

This is going to be a very short post. Why? ...because I'm doing it from my wii and it takes a while to point and click at each letter. The holidays were awesome! Our 5th wedding anniversary was last weekend and it was awesome, too. More to come on our weekend away from home soon. Seems like after the holidays we don't see hardly any family. Well, we miss and love you all!!

Tis the Season

Tis the season for (in no particular order)....

dipping chocolates
eating entirely too much
colds (sniff!)
hot chocolate
stress (too much to do!)
Santa Claus
new PJs
snow - yay! (mixed with rain - yuck!)
warm fuzzy feelings
Christmas caroling
not having any money

Lately things are just busy. Nick has been asking me when I'm going to update our blog and I'm finally getting around to make a quick entry. As always, life is grand and we are happy. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Happy Halloween! (a bit late) We had a fun weekend. Nick actually went hunting on Saturday and I decided to stay home and do some much needed cleaning. I did a heck of a good job, too! We got a bunch of trick-or-treaters. Nothing like what we used to get at our old apartment. I think the most we ever got there was maybe 7 or 8. On Saturday I was starting to lose count so I started a tally and we got about 40 that night and then another 30 or so on Sunday. Good thing I bought enough candy. Of course we still have some left, though. Just what I need... Last Wednesday was the only night we had to carve our pumpkins with Nick being in school and having a ward calling in the Scouts. We looked online for some patterns and decided to do King Leonidas and an immortal warrior from the movie 300. Nick did King Leonidas and I did the warrior. I think they turned out pretty darn good. Here's a few more things we've been up to...
We went to Yellowstone with Nick's family over conference weekend. It was a lot of fun driving around seeing everything. We didn't see a whole lot of animals but we did catch a few elk and buffalo with our cameras.

We stopped to picnic on Sunday and fed some camp robber birds. It was pretty funny when they came to get the food off our heads. Saphronia's face is classic! I can't believe it's already November. This year has really flown by. Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before I know it. Crazy! I'm excited for the holidays, though. Busy, busy but fun, fun, FUN!

My brother... a Hero

"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." - Elmer Davis
My brother, Jason is one of those brave ones. I got to go to the airport yesterday to see him off before he left for Mississippi. He'll be at Camp Shelby for about a month and then ship out to Iraq for about a year.
He's my baby brother and at 19 years old I can't help but still think of thim as just a kid. I'm still proud of him, though. He's grown up a lot and he's doing a good thing. I love you Jason! Good luck!!
