Christmas Time!!!

So I totally forgot to take pictures on Christmas morning.  When you are having so much fun you forget about stupid things like pictures.  Maybe that will be my new years resolution, to take more pictures.  We spent the morning at Trent's mom's house then over to my mom's for more presents and lots of food.  Thank you to all who gave us gifts of every and any kind we love them all.  Trent and I are starting to notice how much we don't really want or need gifts, so next year don't stress over a gift.  We are having a great time with family and friends, but soon it will be over and I will be sad.  It snowed today so more pictures will be posted soon of our fun in the snow.  Till then.

Update: Trent made student Captain for school.  He will have more responsibilities, but will love being in charge.  


It has been forever, I'm sorry.  Work and school have been hated and crazy, but now it is Christmas Break and ahhhh relaxation...kind of.  A few weeks ago Trent and I headed to Utah for Trent's mission companion's wedding.  Congratulations Shawn and Telley!  The wedding was beautiful and Trent had a blast talking with mission friends.

An extra benefit in going to Utah was staying with my bestest friend Sarah and her husband Adam.  We hadn't seen each other since Trent and my wedding, a year and a half ago.  

On Saturday night we went to temple square to see the Christmas Lights. Tip to all those who don't think like me, don't go to see the lights on the last saturday before Christmas...crazy busy. But it was super fun walking around in the cold with friends (mandy, mike, troy, and alex) and drinking hot chocolate.

Fall is Here

Fall is here and that means the start of Holidays and decorations.  I love the Fall with all the beautiful colors, cold nights, and cuddle time.  

In September I (along with Trent, Trevor, and Maggie) ran in Portland's Race For The Cure.  I loved training for it and thought I did I pretty good job with my time.  Both my Great Grandma and Grandma are and were Breast Cancer Survivors.

Yay for the Beach!!!

We just had to sneak one more vacation in before the summer was over.  We made our way to the beach for Labor Day weekend.  It was nice and relaxing walking the beaches taking pictures while Trent explored on rocks, working on crafts, and curling up with my hubby and watching tons of FRIENDS and movies. For those of you who didn't get to go to the beach please enjoy....!!!

We finally got our 1 year photos done. I said that as long as we got them done in the summer it still counts. We will do better next year.
Just to catch you up on our oh so amazing life... This summer has been fun, full of little vacations to the beach, the ranch in eastern Oregon, and many weekends in Gresham. It seems we are up in Gresham every weekend and I wonder to myself 'why did we move to Salem?' Well school starts back up in two weeks and hopefully we will get more on a schedule. I will be working full time as a nanny for an adorable 6 month old boy and also taking a few classes. Trent is back to ultimate full time at school for fire fighting. We have one more year!!!! Yay!!! Hopefully he can transfer some credits to Portland so that he can get his Paramedic up there instead of staying for another 8 months in Salem. Cross your fingers!!!

The Ranch

I think it has been two weeks since we went to the ranch and now I am finally getting the photos on here. Sorry.  It was a nice couple of days of relaxation with swimming, tanning, and shopping.  We can't wait to go back again as soon as possible.  I was lucky enough only to suffer from my infamous allergies for one night, so this marked my first time happy and healthy at the ranch.  I loved it!!!

The Beach

Trent and I went on an impromptu trip to the beach last weekend with some family and friends.  It was such a good  break from the hot weather here.  The high was around 70 and very foggy, I loved it.  We flew planes and kites on the beach and ate yummy pizza.  It was a good weekend.
