Welcome to Whoville!!!

So we have been up to a lot lately and I have decided to take pictures of everything. I am the one that does our grocery shopping, but since Andrew was home with me one night I made him go with me.

Here is a picture of him on one of the little motorized carts that he drove around that he said "could turn on a dime!" He kept showing me how great the turning radius was- it was pretty impressive! Ha Ha! And, it was funny cause while I was looking at the Christmas Decorations he was getting toothpaste and I hear this lady start talking to him and come to find out she was such a saint to my little retard and said, "If you need anything up high that I can grab for you while I am here just let me know...What'd you do to yourself?" Then Andrew lied and told her that he blew out his knee playing football and then she went on to tell him that her son did the same thing and the recovery is a long one. I about peed my pants when he told me the whole story. Ha Ha! Here is story number 2. Andrew's parents were so nice and let us have their old Christmas tree cause they have a new one. So, we rearranged our furniture, set up the tree and everything. His parents thought that it was going to be too wide for our house, so we had to set it up on the Monday before Thanksgiving because if it didn't work they were going to buy us a smaller one for one of our Christmas presents, but it worked so we were all good.

Then, on Black Friday we put the lights on it. (Here's where you have to use your math skills) We had 350 lights that Andrew started stringing on around 8:00, by 9:00ish we realize that we need A LOT more, so we went to Walmart and bought 2 packs of 400 lights, so 800.

So, we go home, start stringing them on and when we get through that 800 at 11:40 we realize that we need even more lights! SO, at 11:45 we make our second trip back to Walmart and buy 300 more! I thought that we just needed 200, but Andrew wanted to buy one more set just in case cause he wasn't going to make a 3rd trip to Walmart cause the 2nd one was bad enough. SO, we are putting the 300 on and it barely is enough- if we wouldn't have bought that extra set my inspired husband suggested, we would have made a 3rd trip!!! So, hopefully you've been counting and have figured out that we put 1,450 lights on our tree!!! It seriously looks AMAZING! Andrew did such a good job and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Since it was like 1:00 in the morning we decided that we would decorate it on Saturday. Luckily we had more than enough decorations, so our tree looks freaking awesome!

And, I got the cutest ornament that says 2008 and we put a picture of us in it and that is going to be our little ornament tradition.

OK, last story. The past 2 years I have had the same advent calendar, but I forgot it and left it in Salt Lake at my parents house, so I decided that I would make one this year! I printed out cute numbers off of the computer and taped them to mini Snickers and mini Reeses- our two favorites! Then, I got white ribbon (like snow) and tied them to the papers and candy and hung them on a mini tree in our room. The Red ones are mine and the Green ones are Andrews. So, we have 50 of them on there! Yikes! It is a little crowded, but it's fun so I don't care!

Well, hope you all enjoyed the longest posted in the world and hope you guys had a GREAT Thanksgiving and are getting SO excited for Christmas! I am like extra excited this year!
AH, ok, this is the real last thing. Dylan turned 1!!! I love him so much I can't even tell you and wish that I got to hang out with him every day cause he is so dang cute! Here is a picture of him destroying a piece of his birthday cake!

So I am getting involved with this company called ExFuze that is literally the coolest thing in the entire world! It is a home- based business that is PERFECT for anyone, particularly for women who want to be a stay at home mom, but still bring in some kind of income. Go to their website and at least watch this video, it's about 15 minutes long, but will change your life if you "have half a brain," according to my wonderful dad. ;) Please let me know if you have any questions or are interested at all.

So where did October go? I feel like time has been literally FLYING past me and I don't realize that it is almost Thanksgiving and Christmas! And, the best part- this semester is coming to a close. I actually have really like this semester and have not been as busy as I have in other semesters. I, like everyone else have just been working and going to school, nothing to exciting. Andrew has been really busy too with his church calling (E.Q. Secretary), work and school, oh, and ME! Ha Ha! So here are a few pictures of what we have been up to... carving pumpkins, MAKING my Pocahontas costume- Andrew was Jon Smith, not a Home Teacher like his bully friends said!, and CUTE CUTE Dylan! Amy dressed him up as a Scarecrow! It was seriously the most adorable thing ever and it was even cutter cause she wore that costume when she was a baby! AHHH... I'm not baby hungry at all, don't worry! ;)

This is after we carved our cute pumpkins!

Andrew's Creepy Spider!

My Pumpi Umpi Umpkin!

CUTE Scarecrow Dylan!

SO I've kind of ignored my blog these last few weeks...ok, probably days, but whatever. I have been working a ton and school is finally catching up with me and the semester is really half way through! That really flew by! Andrew has been playing in a flag football league these last few weeks and I went to his game last night and I swear they scored every other play- it was SO cool! AND, it snowed yesterday! OK, it only did for like 10 minutes, actually it was mostly on Sunday, but when we woke up on Monday morning there was snow and I ran down and turned the heat on cause it was SO freaking cold in our house! Anyway, it made me feel like Christmas with the snow and just the whole day felt like Christmas and it made me SO excited for Christmas!!!

Andrew is the QB for his team!

There team is called the Local Boyz cause they are all from Logan!

The back of Andrew's shirt says Borat- that should make Papa Ned happy. ;)

Our first Snow picture!!! Ha Ha!

I've been tagged...

Rules: You have to post the 4th picture in the 4th folder in your pictures folder. Then give a brief description before you tag a few others. So here it goes!

I was really nervous that the fourth picture in my fourth folder was going to be a bad one, but this one is really cute. This was on Chloe's birthday back in April of me, Meggie and Emily. For Chloe's birthday we went to a movie about Mummies at the movie theater down at Gateway and they have all this weird science stuff and they had these like "Bug Eye" glasses that we thought were pretty cool. Ha Ha! I LOVE MY SISTERS...AND BROTHER!!!

Baby Dylan

Every Sunday we are blessed to go to Andrew’s parent’s house for dinner, so we get one good meal a week thanks to his fantastic parents! I love going over to eat and hang out but mostly to see our nephew Dylan. Dylan is Andrew’s older brother Tyson and Amy’s son. Amy has taught me so much and knows everything about babies. She knows what they can and can not eat, so hopefully they still live close to us when I have a baby cause she is such a good mom to Dylan. He seriously is the cutest little boy in the worlds with so much personality. He is 10ish months old and had started getting teeth and on Sunday he started chewing on the brick fireplace! AHHH, that just makes my teeth hurt thinking about it! Anyways, I took some pictures of him on my new camera that my fabulous parents gave me for my early birthday present, so enjoy the cuteness!


This is what he should be chewing on, not the Brick Fireplace...OUCH!!!

He is such a happy baby, it is so fun to be with him! Look at his cute outfit!

Amy was feeding him those Baby Goldfish and I thought this one was kinda funny. ;)

This post is dedicated to my sisters. I seriously love them to death and can't go a day with out talking to all of them. I love Meggie because she really is funny and is always willing to help and has such a good attitude about all of her health issues and is such a good example to me. Meggie is so much fun to be with because we are so close in age we have a lot in common. Emily is HILARIOUS! I call Emily when I can't make my own decisions, which is about every 10 minutes so I don't know why we every even hang up. She is on Hillcrest Drill and loves every second of it. They won State last year and I am SO excited for her to win it again!!! Chloe' she's the GORGEOUS one. Seriously, she has the tinniest little body and the prettiest features in the world. She's our little athlete. My favorite story about Chloe is the day that I moved up to USU in August of 2006, after they got home from helping me move in she called me BAWLING cause she was so sad that I had moved out. I teared up and told here that she can call me every night and come and stay with me when ever she wanted. To this day Chloe still calls me every night and apparently flips out when she can't get to her phone to call me. I would DIE without my sisters and want them to know how much they mean to me. My little Coleman is my only brother, so I have to tell him that he is the BEST EVER and I love him more than anything! He's so cute when ever any of us girls are sad, or my mom especially- he defends her all the time when we tease my mom and he really has such a sweet spirit. I'm thankful for Cole cause he beats up on my dad and toughens him up.

These are me and my sisters in Jackson Hole!

Emily, Meggie and Me at the USU VS. U of U football game on Saturday!

Us being extremely bored at the game...

Me and Cole at my wedding!

Short Hair...

This is kind of what I think I want my hair to look like...

New Hair...

So my new big decision that I am facing in life is if I should take my extension out or not... I love long hair because it is so sexy, but it is getting hard to have them in cause my extension lady is in Sandy... If I do take them out I want to cut more bangs. My real hair is like 3 inches past my shoulders, so it won't be too short... AHHH! I hate these kind of decisions and of course, Andrew thinks I'll look great either way- he's right, but that still leaves ME to make the decision...

I don't really get this...

So everyone has been yelling at me that I should update my blog, but I don't really get how or how to make it cute and stuff, so it is going to be ugly for a while. Me and Andrew are so great- now we've almost been married for 6 whole months!!! I should be 6 months pregnant, but that is a whole different issue. Ha Ha! Before school started me and Andrew went to Jackson Hole with my family and it was so much fun. Now life is busy again with school and work, but it's all good.
