A Merry Merry Christmas

Luke and I had a wonderful Christmas this year. This was our first year sleeping at our own house for Christmas. Then we went to Lukes family Christmas at 8am. Our favorite gift was a set of 11 DVD's that are all the homevideos that were ever taken of lukes family. They are SO funny. Then we went to Grandpa Toms for ham and rolls and then headed over to My families for more breakfast and play. We basically bounced back and forth all day between families. I am so happy we live so close to both families!! We did miss Meagans fam and Mikelles this year, It was sad not having them here, so they better make it next year!! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas's!!

Christmas= A LOT OF TREATS

So for Christmas this year I have decided to give treats as my gift to friends since the bank account has been a little too low this season. Here is what I made :

These are Chocolate-caramel covered pretzels, and half are rolled in Reeses :)

It is also my oldest brother Steve's Birthday today!35! Happy Birthday Steve! I love you! He is such a wonderful brother and has always been there for anyone and everyone. He is such a fun brother! He is the brother that always took us camping, taught me how to shoot a gun (which backfired and a fragment of the bullet went into his shoulder), how to ride a horse, and how to love being outdoors. He is really an amazing big brother!

Caroling! Fa la la la

My older brother Steve got the family together, along with some friends to go on a hay ride and sing carols to the neighborhood. It was really fun, expecially since the only songs we knew were jingle bells and we wish you a merry Christmas. (we forgot a song book...)We also roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and had hot cocoa! It was fun! Thanks Steve!

I can't believe it has been a year...

Sweet Grandma Jo Jo past away a year ago today. I miss her SO much, as I know everyone else that knew her, and all her family misses her just as much! She was the greatest grandma! All of us grandchildren LOVED to spend the night at grandmas house and wake up to her super yummy oatmeal and eggs on toast! Seriously the best ever! She was always there for every little event! And would always call and check up on us. And if we couldn't find her at home, all we had to do is go to El Charro and there she would be! haha If you want to read more about my wonderful grandma please go to my cousin Jordyns blog : We miss you Grandma!

1st Anniversary!

So yesterday was mine and Lukes 1 year anniversary! We went to Disneyland last week so that was pretty much our anniversary present to each other. But we did do a few things on Saturday to celebrate!

So Luke has been really into playing pool lately. So we thought it would be fun to go play at a pool hall for a bit. He tells me I am I thought I might have a chance at finally beating him in something....but of course...I didnt. After playing at Roosters (which by the way was filthy) we went to Macaroni Grill which is one of our favorite restaurants. Then we went and hung out with Adam & Sarah, Guffy & Brittany and Lance & Kim for some more pool and a movie. On our actual anniversary date (yesterday) I woke up to a bouquet of tulips (my favorite). I wasn't feeling well so Luke took care of me, and I of course milked it for all that it was worth. All in all it was a Great anniversary. I have loved every minute of this past year with Luke. He is such a wonderful Husband. I am so happy he chose me to be is wife! I dont think any other man could put up with my stubbornness! He's Amazing. I love you Luke!

Vote Yes on Proposition 102

4 short videos that show what has happened and what can happen if marriage
isn't protected.

font color='#cc0000'>

Prop 102 is 20 simple and clear words: 'Only a union of one man and one
woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state.'

A YES vote on Prop 102 does one thing and one thing only - it defines marriage
as the union of one man and one woman in the Arizona Constitution, the highest
law in our state. An amendment secures the definition of marriage in Arizona
and leaves no interpretation for judges, politicians, or special interest

What have I been up to you ask??

Our Neighbor's 15yr old snuck out in Daddy's truck and this was the result...

My Sunbeam class! They are some pretty funny kids...One sad he was going to be sick on Friday cuz he thinks a tornado is coming...

I made this super yummy recese cake for my sister-n-laws birthday and it was AMAZING!

And last but not least, one of my best friends Lauren (Lar!) got married! She was the prettiest bride I have ever seen!

Baby Rumor??

So, last sunday I was at church and an older man in the ward came up to me and said CONGRATULATIONS!! and I happily smiled and said THANKS! I had no idea why I was being congratulated but I happily excepted it. Then on Tuesday I get a call from my new visiting teachers, both are brand new to the ward so we have never met. She calls and says that they want to come visit and if everything was okay with me and MY BABY!? I said um....I dont have a baby.. I just got married 8 months ago! Turns out that the Reliefs Society presidency who gave them their visiting teaching assignment told them that I had just recently had a baby!! What???

Nothing SUMMER about it..

So this week I started summer school for the first time in my life! I am taking an Anatomy Physiology class at Scottsdale CC. The class is good and interesting, we are disecting a sheep brain and eye ball next week! :) But the only thing that ruins it for me is I have to wake up at 6 to get to school on time! I haven't woken up that early since Jr High! The class is Mon-Thurs. 7-12! I would fall asleep, but I have to get my GPA up if I want to get into the Nursing program at ASU! When I get out of school at 12, I head straight to the antique shop until 5 then I get to study and study and do some more studying since we have a quiz or exam everyday! I know I live a boring life and I am sorry you are reading this! Well on to Luke. He is busy working, and working too much that I never get to see him! I don't like his new job! He likes what he does, but doesn't enjoy the 60 hours they have him working, so we will see how long this job lasts! We are both definitely looking forward to Lukes family reunion in Mexico the end of JULY! I can't WAIT!!!
