I'm Thankful For...

Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays and this year was a lot of fun. We ate dinner this year at Tim's parents house and it was great. It is just so much fun to get together with the family and enjoy each others comp
any. After dinner we went to my Mom's house for some (more) dessert. I love Thanksgiving because not only do I get to spend time with my family but it also reminds me of the things I should be thankful for all year long. I have been very blessed and am so grateful for that. I am especially thankful for Tim. I am very grateful that I have a wonderful husband who could take me to the temple and that I get to be with him forever! I am also very lucky to have such a wonderful family. Our families support us so much and are always there for us and we love them all very much! I am incredibly thankful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is so wonderful to know how much our Heavenly Father loves us and to have so much comfort in that. I am also thankful for my calling as a nursery teacher. I have learned a lot from being in there this past year and I am so excited to go each week because they are such wonderful kids! There are so many other things that we have to be thankful for and my goal is to remember those things daily and not just on Thanksgiving!

Weekend Update

It's been a while since I have blogged so I thought that I would just tell a little about our weekend. It was a pretty girly weekend for me. Saturday morning I got up to go see "Twilight" with my mom and sister. It was pretty good and I definitely recommend it. Even my mom loved it and she has never even read the books. I was a little unsure about the cast at first but they turned out to be great, especially Bella and Edward. They were pretty much perfect for the part. I am already excited to see the next one!

That night, while Tim was watching the Utah- BYU game, I thought it would be a good time for some crafting. Tim's mom gave me this cute flower vase craft to do a while ago but I didn't have any scrapbook paper that I liked for it. So I finally decided to go to the craft store for my supplies. This is how it turned out. It's kind of hard in the picture to see exactly what it looks like.

Other than that we haven't really been up to a whole lot lately. Tim has been working really hard at school and is getting ready to finish up the semester. I have pretty much just been working and I am finally feeling pretty comfortable at my somewhat new job. For the most part we have just been trying to find time to enjoy with eachother! You will probably be seeing a lot more posts from us in the next month or so. December is a pretty busy time for us with the holiday season and a ton of birthdays in our families, including both of us. So soon we will have a lot to share!

Happy Halloween!

Tim and I decided that we would spend Halloween with our families this year so we definitely made the rounds. We started out at my Mom's house, then Tim's parents house and finally Tim's sister's house. Since we don't have any kids yet Halloween isn't that much fun on our own. We thought it would be more fun to hang out with people who did have kids. We were super excited to see our nephews all dressed up in their costumes and excited to trick-or-treat. They looked so cute in their costumes! I am really glad that we decided to spend our Halloween with them! Maybe we are getting old when we'd rather hang out with our nephews on Halloween than with our friends! Here are a few pictures from our night.
