Goodbye 2010

This past year has been good to us, here are a some things that we have done this year.
Our first hiking trip together in the Paria Canyon
Anniversary trip to Lake Powell
Celebrated our FIRST anniversary and were part time carni workers for the summer.
4 Wheeling on the La Platas.
I ran my first 1/2 marathon
Reed bought a motorcycle. Actually he bought 2 this year.
Summer trip to Cali
One of the many fishing trips

Camping by Kennebec Pass
Jeeping in Silverton
4 Wheeling with friends.
One of our many trips to the temple. (St. George)

This year we (with help of my mom) decided it was best for us to both go to school full time. It has been one of the biggest blessings in our life. Not only is it fun being poor because we have to be more creative/frugal with our money we are creating a better future for our family. Thank goodness for parents that push us to be better.

2 years ago today was our first official (pick me up and meet the parents) date. Wow how time has flown by.Do we look any different?
Maybe Reed with his "man beard".

This has been one of the best years of my life, and I know 2011 will be even better!

Merry Christmas

Hope you all had a great Christmas! We sure did. We Hung out all day and just enjoyed the holiday. Rudy wore his sweet Christmas outfit and Reed wore his nice slick pajamas my parents gave him. We both got to talk to our brothers that are on a mission. Today was an awesome day for sure. Hope yours was as well.

Birthday Weekend

Friday was my 22nd Birthday (can't believe I'm that old), it was great and my sweet husband made sure it was the best day ever.I'm always cold so He bought me the comfy sweats I'm wearing (explains the tag on my shirt).
Then he made me this awesome jewelry holder! I had it just hanging on nails on the wall so he made this for me. I love it!

Friday morning we got up and drove to St. George, UT to visit some friends. That night we went out to a cool restaurant called the Anasazi.After dinner we visited the temple to see the Christmas lights and displays. Reed also gave me this nice North Face jacket once we got to St. George.
It was very pretty.
Saturday morning we went back to the temple. Then..
Experienced 5 Guys for the first time and fell in love.

Our friends took us to The Forgotten Carols Play. Reed had never seen it before but we both loved it.
Sunday night we had a little get together at my mom's and my sister Amanda made me an awesome cake. It says Princess KK of course.
Everyone was there including my dear friend Missy, but the only picture I got was a fuzzy one with my niece Olivia.
It was the best birthday weekend ever! Thanks to my awesome husband, family and friends.
Now the business of the Christmas season has begun..

Reed built this headboard for me on one of his days off. It is almost done, I will post pictures soon of the finished product. But I am way excited about it because 1. I've wanted a headboard for a long time and 2. Reed is starting to learn how to do stuff that means many more projects to come :)
On a side note: Our last day of classes is TODAY! We have finals and then we have a month break from school. We are excited! We definitely need some lazy, nothing to do time.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am spending the day with some of the people that I love the most. I am so thankful for my awesome family (on both sides) and the blessings they bring into my life. They make
everything worth it. This is the most recent picture I have of our families. We should probably work on that.
Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend we went to Los Alamos, NM where Reed's sister Annie lives. Reed's dad has to work Thanksgiving night so we decided to have a little pre-Thanksgiving dinner.
{taken with cell phone}
We went to this place called Valles Caldera outside of Los Alamos. It is a volcanic caldera and has a huge grass valley.
It was beautiful!

Pre-Thanksgiving dinner was so delish! Reed's step-mom Fila is a wonderful cook!
We decided to play some Cranium afterwards and the losers had to do ALL the dishes. We chose random teams and yep my team was victorious!
The losers that had to do all the dishes!
While the rest of us enjoyed delicious cake.
They wanted a rematch and we agreed but beat them again! This time they had to dance to a song for a minute (which I have on video but would be in BIG trouble if I posted that on here)
Reed danced to Backstreet Boy's song Larger than Life. It was priceless.
We had such a fun time. Now we get another feast on Thursday with my parents!

This weekend we went to Blanding to visit Reed's dad. Reed's dad is a big hunter so there are bones everywhere are Rudy loves it.We decided to go fishing which lasted about 5 minutes because it was SO cold!
It was a fun weekend doing absolutely nothing.

Last night we went to a church Halloween party and Reed insisted that I dress up. So I decided to be a cowgirl because it took the least amount of effort. Reed was a lumberjack. He wanted me to be a tree and make my hair wild like branches and put a nest in my hair. I said "noooo way!!"
Halloween is just awkward for us because we don't have kids yet and we don't do trick or treating or anything. But we had a good time and finished off the night watching a scary movie with some friends.

I haven't had a good Rudy post in a while so here is a little reminder of how I have such a strange dog...

So as I said before we recently moved and in our new backyard there is this little fort kind of thing that we haven't had a chance to take down yet. We look out the window one morning and this is what we find.

Rudy chillin on the fort! We didn't even know it was strong enough to hold him but apparently he figured that it was. What a weird dog we know, he will just chill up there all day and watch cars drive by.

4 Wheeling

This weekend we went 4-wheeling in the canyon with our dear friend Heidi. They have tons of 4 wheelers so everyone got their own.

Reed thinks he is a professional photographer or something and was making Paige get in a pose for the picture and her wheels came off the ground in the process.

We hiked to this cool spot that we want to have a bonfire at this weekend.It was a blast! Thanks Heidi!

Things have been quite busy lately. We recently moved apartments and have been slowly trying to get things organized whenever we find spare time. Life sure is busy but we are loving every minute of it and know that all the hard work will pay off later. The semester is half way over, woo hoo! We are definitely looking forward to Christmas break. It will be a nice breather before we start up again.
