Well, let me start off by telling the WORLD how amazing my husband is. If any of you know him, know that it is very hard for him to keep ANY secrets. But, HE PULLED IT OFF!!!! My birthday was on friday the 12Th. (please note that in all your calendars for next year) So, one thing that i wanted was to have all my family up here to celebrate it. But, everyone kept giving excuses to why they couldn't come. I just figured it would be another year with my husband and myself. Which let say is not bad.... but its been kind of a tough year and I just wanted to be with everyone on this particular day. To start the day off Mo and I got up and had breakfast together and then he had to go into work for a few hours and planned on being back around noon to start the PARTY!!! That afternoon we went out to lunch and to a movie THE FOUR CHRISTMASES. After that we went out to do some shopping since we were already at the mall. Now, you have to understand we were planning on having dinner around 6:30m with Nate and Brit. So when 6:15 came around I was telling mo that we needed to get going and he was acting weird. He kept wondering if there was any other places that we needed to go. He then took the LONG route home. By the time we actually arrived it was 6:50pm. We go inside and I go over to the pizza's wondering why they had order so many. Out of the room MY FAMILY jumps out yelling SURPRISE!!!!!! The best present ever. (Besides the DIAMOND EARRINGS HE GAVE ME) That is why I have the BEST husband ever. I LOVE YOU MO!!!!!!!

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Delta. Oh, how I love spending the holidays with my family!! My heart will ALWAYS be true to DELTA. Alternating the holidays has probably been the hardest adjustment in marriage. I offered to give up Presidents Day and Columbus day if Moses would give me Thanksgiving and Christmas every year!!! Negotiation is still in the works......
We have officially returned from Savannah, Ga. Although it wasn't the most pleasant thing in the world. We went through 10 total states before we got home. (South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, And finally Utah.) And our home is actually with our 'joint at the hip' family members Nate and Britney Johnson. We hope to find a FINALLY STABLE spot to call home in the Provo/Orem area. This will allow us to have some facial time with a lot more of you! And Hopefully for those of you that are a distance away we can actually make this more of a committed effort to update our blog! It's a lot warmer then Rexburg this time of the year, almost makes us wonder what to do besides sit inside by the fire place and complain about the 6 month blizzard. We look forward to the holidays and family time, and of course shopping! We hope all is well and wish all of you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year. Our goals go from Moses loosing his bulging back muffins to preparing Shellene to come out of retirement and back into the dental field, and of course, most importantly to expanding new additions to our family. May your goals follow you into the future with determination and more importantly success. We love you all, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
