We are FINALLY moving and will be in our own place on January 24th. We got an amazing deal and the apartment is close to Boeing and my school. They are called North Creek Apartments and we are close to our friends and in a Ward that I grew up in. We are excited!!

We sold a lot of stuff to pay our bills when Mike was out of work, so now we are trying to get things rounded up so we have what we need!

If anyone has a twin mattress and box spring they would like to donate, let me know :)!

Family Pictures

My dad took some family pictures when he was home over Christmas! Like everything else I am behind and haven't got any sent out! They turned out cute though! Thanks Dad!


We had a very nice Christmas this year. I had to work both Christmas Eve and Day so it was just a little strange. Other than that it was very relaxing and fun to be with family.

Loved Santa sooo much, she sat on his lap 3 times!

Christmas Eve: Getting ready to open up her present

Payton's Pajama's, Slippers, and Curious George Stuffed animal she opened on Christmas Eve

This was taken on Christmas Eve. We never get snow like this....over a foot!

Mike literally stayed up ALL night Christmas Eve putting this darn thing together! He did an amazing job, and Payton LOVED it!!

She came downstairs so excited, and wanted to wear this outfit right away.

Started cooking right away!

Opening up the rest of the presents with her cookin outfit on!

Alyssa and Josh's Wedding

So again I have failed to keep this thing up to date! I have a lot to write about and a lot of pictures! So here it goes.....

My sister Alyssa and her boyfriend (Josh) gave us news they were getting married and wanted it to be on December 21st. So, it was a mad dash to get everything ready! It turned out really pretty. They were married at my parent's house and was a very nice ceremony! Josh is in the National Gaurd and didn't know when he was going to be sent out, so they wanted to get married asap. Here are just a few pictures from that day.
