Christmas Tree Hunting

A few days ago we went to get a Christmas tree! Very fun. It never takes long. My mom usually finds one that she likes and that is usually the one we get! She always picks a good one though. I love walking around the Christmas tree lots. It smells so good!
Although we won't be here in Medford for Christmas it was fun sharing a little bit of the Christmas season with the Merrill family. We love them and have had such a good time here. Thanks Mom and Dad for all that you do! We can never tell you enough how much we appreciate you.
In a few days we are off to Utah for Christmas with the Gerber family! We are getting very excited to spend some time with them and see our cute little nieces and new nephew!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Well, we had a great Thanksgiving here in Medford. I have been meaning to put some pictures up from our Thanksgiving day and write about some things I am grateful for. So, I know this is a little belated, but it is the thought that counts.

First, I am so grateful for my family. It has been so much fun spending time up here with them. I am grateful for their hospitality and kindness. Everytime I come home I realize how blessed I am with such a wonderful family.

2.I am also grateful for my brother Phil, and for his decision to serve a mission. He has been a great strength to our family and it has been such a blessing with him in Brazil.

3.I am grateful for such a wonderful husband who is so caring and gentle. He helps me to remember what is important in life and always makes me smile.

4.Finally, I am grateful for this Christmas season. It is such an exciting time with all the lights, music etc... But mostly I am grateful for the birth our Savior and the chance to celebrate it with family.
Here is a picture of my Dad working hard on his wonderful gravy. I am so grateful to have such an amazing Dad. It has been fun spending time with him for a few weeks. I love him and am so blessed to have such a patient, funny, and loving Dad.

Goodbye Las Vegas

The time has come! Adam is already done selling here in Las Vegas! He has done a great job and has worked so hard. Everday going out and knocking doors is not something I could do myself and I appreciate all the time and effort he has put into working out here. Time has gone by so quickly. We have enjoyed being here and experiencing a new place, but we are both ready to head out! We are leaving on Saturday for Medford where we will spend Thanksgiving and a few extra weeks and then its off to Utah for Christmas for another few weeks. We are excited to spend time with family and get a break (a big one) before we start off another semester at BYU-Idaho. I think we are both ready for some real fall weather as well! We love the nice 70-80 degree weather here, but as the holidays start to come we get a little homesick for the cool weather.

Also, another exciting moment (it doesn't take much to get me excited, especially when I have spent mostly all of my time here at home and working on the computer. No complaints.).......I was in Portland this past week watching my cousins while my aunt and uncle were in Hawaii. Adam stayed here in Las Vegas working hard. It was so much fun to spend time up there. I got them up and ready for school, we went and saw "Bee Movie" (very cute), went to a soccer game and mostly just hung out and relaxed. I love those kids, and it was great to see them for a week! And, how could you not love this cute little second grader Hallie....

Happy Halloween!

Here are some pictures or our fabulous pumpkins! Mine is supposed to be a vampire (thanks to Adam's creativity....I couldn't think of anything!), and Adam's....a very scary face! He spent forever working on it. He kept drawing and drawing until he came up with the perfect face. I think it looks pretty good!

Here are the pumpkins before......

and after!

Very scary!

I love Sundays! Relaxation... and it is great to spend some time together. All month Adam kept asking me when I was going to make his favorite cookies. They are the sugar cookies that my mom used to always make. And they are the best I have ever had. But they do take a little bit of time to make- rolling out the dough, cutting out the shapes and then of course to frost them. Don't get me wrong they are fun to do, just a little extra time and energy than your basic chocolate chip cookie. So I finally decided to whip these up on Sunday when I knew Adam would be home to help me frost them since I always frost them alone. It was a lot of fun frosting away together and took a lot less time! And they were delicious.. yes they are already gone.

BYU Game

Last night we went to the BYU vs. UNLV football game. Adam got tickets a few weeks ago and then a couple days before the game he was working and some guy had about ten extra tickets and when Adam told him he was going to the game he gave him two! So, Adam's brother Dustin and his wife Leticia came down from St. George for the game. That was fun to see them, and we had great seats only six rows away from the field! And, BYU won...yay!!

Night on the town

A couple of weeks ago we went to downtown Vegas. It was fun to walk around for a while and see all the huge hotels and lights. We went and saw the water and light show at the Bellagio hotel, which was really fun! But, the best place was the M&M store called M&M World. It is four stories high, and full of everything from clothes to toys etc... M&M style. On the second floor there is a wall with every color of regular and peanut M&Ms ever made. Very exciting- if you are M&M fans like we are (Especially Jessica)!

Weekend in Medford

This past weekend we had the opportunity to go to Oregon for a few days. Jessica's brother Phil is leaving for his mission to Fortaleza, Brazil on September 25th. He spoke on Sunday in church, and did an awesome job. He is so excited and prepared to leave and to serve the Lord. We are very excited and proud of him! It was also fun to see some relatives for a few days and spend time with the family. We had fun going to breakfast at Roosters, shopping, swimming and enjoying spending time together.

Nauvoo Family Reunion

Well, we finally made a blog. Yay! Hopefully we will keep up with it faithfully and will keep it exciting! We recently just went to Nauvoo for a family reunion with Jessica's family. It was such an awesome experience and so many fun memories. We definitely would love to go there again someday.
The temple was so beautiful, especially the inside. There was so much detailing to everything. It's amazing!

It was great to spend time with all of our cousins. Jessica loves to see them, especially the Collins' girls who she doesn't get to see as often as she used to.
Adam and Jessica at Adam-ondi-Ahmen. What a beautiful and peaceful place!
Jessica trying to walk on stilts! It is much harder than it looks!
Adam fits right in!
