Engagement Pictures

Last month Mike and I went to Idaho Falls and got our engagement pictures taken. Here are a few of them:

Weekend in Fruitland

A couple weeekends ago Mike and I were able to spend the weekend in Fruitland. Friday we did a little shopping in Boise with my parents and then we met up with Tyler, Kati, and Quincy to go out to dinner. This is us at cafe ole for dinner.

On Saturday we helped my dad move a wheel line back into one of our fields; about a week earlier a wind storm had blown it at least a half a mile over two fenses and up a hill into our nieghbors field. Mike didn't seem to mind helping my dad out; actually, he said he enjoyed working on a farm! Later that day my mom and Kati threw me a bridal shower. It was a lot of fun and they did a great job. We had almost ten people show up and we ate some food, make me advise book, and opened some gifts. Mike, my dad, and Tyler were supposed to be at the priesthood meeting for general conference, but the NCAA championship basketball game was on so they stuck around the house to watch it. Lucky for them, they also got stuck as the babysitters for the kids that came with a couple of the moms to the shower.

It was a great weekend and I really enjoyed being able to spend time with my parents and Tyler and Kati, since we don't seem to get to that very often.

Recent Events

The biggest news I have right now is that I moved to Jerome, ID the end of December. Mike and I were able to go down to Provo the beginning of January to watch BYU play wakeforest; the game was so much fun to watch!!! But I still wish BYU would have pulled it out at the end. For the past week I've been working at a bookstore doing inventory and I've also applied to be a substitute teacher for the Jerome School District. Today was my first day of subbing. I subbed for a 3rd grade class and it was a lot of fun. At first I was really nervous because I had no idea what to do, but I think it went really well. So hopefully I'll start getting more calls to sub in the near future.

This past weekend Mike had to work in Pocatello on Thursday and Rexburg on Friday so I went with him. It was fun because I got to see my cousin Janelle who I hadn't seen in a long time. Also that weekend Mike played in a basketball tournament at the Sho-Ban rec center (its on an indian reservation near Idaho Falls). His team was a bunch of friends of his that used to play together years ago when they were all at BYU-I. They did really good and we a lot of fun to watch. I even got a couple pictures of Mike playing; they didn't turn out too well though cuz I was still trying to figure out my camera and the gym was way dark.

That's what I've been up to lately. I'm really happy to be here in Jerome, its been great being here with Mike. And its been really good hanging out with his family. They're all so nice and have welcomed me into their home better than I could have ever asked for.

Thanksgiving break!!!

I had the best thanksgiving break; a whole week of no school(thanks to my slacking attitude of not caring enough to drive back for one day of classes) and tons of amazing food! First big event of thanksgiving break was going go kevin's(mikes little brother) championship football game in pocatello. His team ended up losing, but Kev played great and was tons of fun to watch. The next few days consisted of hanging out with Mike's family, shopping in pocatello while Mike was in a meeting, and trying to conquer super mario. I did manage to go home to Fruitland wednesday and thursday to spend time with the family; which was great! I was able to pick Quincy up in boise on my way home and spoil him with peanut M&M's till Tyler and Kati showed up later that night. Then we just played games with the family and watched Christmas Vacation. Thanksgiving morning the guys and I went and played basketball while the 'moms' stayed home and took care of preparing the appetizers and the turkey. haha... I completely stuffed myself; especially with pumpkin pie!! YUM!!!

Friday morning I drove back to Jerome for my friend Linzi and Brady's wedding and reception. It was so great to be there when she came out of the temple and her reception was really good too. Saturday was Kev's first basketball game of the season; it was in Jerome against BK. It was a good opener game for Kev. There were pictures taken at Kev's football game and Linzi's reception, but I still need to get them from Mike. All I have is a pic of my family on Thanksgiving getting done eating.

I'm so thankful for my family! and also, Mike and his family for letting me spend so much time there at their home.

Family time in Boise!

This past week I was able to make it up to Boise for a couple of days to see my brother Tyler and his family. Also, my parents were able to make it to Boise Thursday night to take us out to dinner! It was a lot of fun staying at Tyler's place and hanging out with him, Kati and Quincy. Tyler rented some Brazilian movie from the library earlier that week, so after dinner Thursday night when we got back to their place we watched it since both Tyler and Mike went to Brazil on their missions and they wanted to hear some portuguese for a couple of hours. It was an interesting movie to say the least; but parts of it were kind of funny. My parents also took us to krispy kreme donuts after dinner, I think mostly because my dad loves to feed Quincy the donuts. Thanks Tyler and Kati for letting me stay with you guys! Also, thanks Kati for going on that little run Thursday, that was fun! Hopefully you guys can make it down to Utah sometime.
