Happy New Year

 Happy New Year!

I am so happy that it is finally 2015! I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. 2014 wasn't one of our best years but we did have some good times. This time, I thought i'd do a mini year in review and just highlight a few of our favorites from 2014. 

1) As much as I appreciate my parents help for a few months we were finally able to find a place and move out. 

2) Not only was I lucky to find a new job right in the beginning of the year but I found 2 jobs this year and wasn't really looking when the 2nd one came around. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. I know i'm where I belong right now. I'm thankful for somebody giving me a chance to take a huge leap from medical to dental. 

3) Paul got a promotion at work. 

4) I've had the opportunity to reconnect with some very dear friends that I havn't seen for years. We have been able to stay in touch regularly now. 

5) We celebrated our 9th anniversary. 

6) We had our first experience at Comic Con.

7) We took our annual trip to California in September. This trip had a lot of firsts for us. We went to Long Beach Aquarium, the Packing House, and Whale Watching. It was amazing! We saw a lot of dolphins on that tour and I was in Heaven. That is one of my favorite things i've done and seen this year. 

8) I took a trip to Vegas alone to visit my friend Colleen. That was a great get away for me. 

9) The holidays were amazing. Thanksgiving was the first holiday since I was in middle school that my grandma and her sisters got to spend together. It was fun to be part of that. 

10) My husband spoiled me for Christmas. He gave me my Walking Dead Blanket with Darryl on it and an I phone 6. 

I hope everyone had a great year and here's to a Happy 2015. Bring it on!

Christmas Break

 I have loved every minute of Christmas Break. We started it off by going to see ANNIE as a family on the night of the 23rd. That was one of my favorite movies growing up and still is to this day. This was an awesome version of it. I really enjoyed it.

One of my favorite gifts ever

2014 Annual Gingerbread House
 Christmas was so much fun this year, the only thing I didn't enjoy is that because of a cold we didn't get to spend the whole day together. If you want the story let me know and I'll tell you more. He went to his parents for dinner and stuff then met me back at my family's for most of the day. I hated not being together the whole day but we got up and had Christmas morning together. Santa came and I think we were both super spoiled although I was most spoiled. I love the holiday season and being together with family. I have the best family in the entire world.

Merry Christmas From Heaven


My brother Stephen came home for a visit in the beginning of December. I decided to get a picture of my brothers while he was home, only problem is my brother Kaden had drill that weekend and we didn't see him at all. So this picture is of 6 of my brothers and i'm sure i'll have more soon, just not with Stephen. I love each and everyone one of them and am lucky to have them.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

 This Thanksgiving was probably one of the best ever! My grandma and her sister came to Utah for a visit. My Aunt Norma, the third sister, had no idea that Aunt Loretta was coming and her face when she saw her was priceless! I really wish somebody had a picture of that. This was special because this is the first holiday in over 12 years that the three sisters have spent together. My mom hosted and we had over 40 people for dinner. 20 of them were my immediate family but it was so much fun. We had a great time with Grandma and Aunt Loretta in town! I hope we didn't scare them away.

Happy Birthday Hunter

My baby brother turned 16 on 11/17/14! Where has the time gone?!
